Would you recommend re-racking to a different keg using a filter?

If your draws are polluted with particles...probably so.

If there is not that much in there, you could try and zip tie a mesh bag on the end of your dip tube.

Default Hop Substitutions and formula


Hi,

I REALLY want to brew this recipe this Saturday. I also REALLY want work out of my existing hop inventory. When doing subs, I know I need to consider flavor/aroma and bittering but frankly am having a difficult time with this many additions. Can you help here is what I have.

5.4% Cascade Pellet
4.8% Fuggle Pellet
11.5% Chinook Pellet
3% Hallertau Pellets (GR)
4.5% U.S. Golding Pellet
8.9% Northern Brewer (GR) Pellet
3.3% Tettnanger (GR) Pellet
8% Centennial Pellet
7.5% Sterling

I hope you read down this far, because I also have to specify what hop utilization formula to plug into beer tools. There are three settings, boil time, gravity correction and pellets correction. Here are my choices.

Boil Time: Basic, Ragar, Garetz, Mosher, Tinseth, Daniels, Fowler
Gravity Correction: None, Common, Mosher, Tinseth, Fowler
Pellet Hops Correction: None Garetz, Mosher, Daniels Fowler

Thanks a bunch. This will be the 4th Biermuncher recipe, 2 are home runs, 3rd is primary. Based on my experience, I prefer the way your recipes turn out over Jamil's.

Stay away from Fuggles, Hallertau, Goldings, Tett and NB. They will get lost in this style of beer.

If it were me, I'd use Chinook as a sub for the Amarillo and use the cascade and centennial at will. Use the tinseth and focus on late additions to slaughter this beer with flavor and aroma. Reserve some of those citrus hops for dry hopping though.

Can't wait to try this one. The web site I'm ordering from does not have summit hops. Is there a reasonable substitute? Are the hop weights for whole or pellet? Does it matter? Sorry for all the questions, still learning.

Just use Centennial in place of the summit and it will turn out great.

Do you recommend additional yeast a few days before bottling for bottle conditioning?
