    How much does the timing of the sugar addition affect attenuation and why? Belgian candi sugar
    is just invert sugar, right? I plan to do this one again soon. my first attempt which was about
    9 months ...

    Has anyone had an opportunity to do the clone of Ommegang bpa? Something similar?Are regular
    fuggles a decent enough substitute for this variety?

    So I've tried my aforementioned recipe, and here's the scoop:I used malted wheat, which was not
    right. I believe it is important to use unmalted wheat, and I've heard you can even just use
    white flour...

    I have been doing this on a few of my beers, one being an IPA, and the result was a huge oak
    flavor, more tannins and less smooth flavors. I did not steam mine chips, but I figured the
    bourbon would d...

    My dad has a wood shop, in which fresh oak is aplenty....must I really buy wood chips from the
    store, or can fresh oak chips be charred appropriately over a bbq, or broiler...toaster
    oven...then bourb...

  • Posted in thread: IPA vs APA Whats the difference really?? on 09-17-2011 at 04:21 PM
    I think there is certainly a fair bit of overlap, and overall, I agree with what has been
    said.One obvious possible difference IMO is the yeast. What we know as an IPA in this day and
    age is different...

    Any news on that clone attempt? Just at a glance I thought the 20 minute addition of Simcoe
    might go against the notion of a less piney flavor, but that opinion is for the most part based
    on my experi...

    I usually try to pitch a starter within 18-24 hours. I've found that with 36 hours or more
    there is a more significant lag time.It sounds like you technically underpitched your yeast as
    well, but all ...

    RDWHAHB. It'll take off all too soon. Your concern shouldn't be will the yeast begin
    fermentation; your concern should be will the yeast finish fermentation. You severely
    underpitched on this batch. C...

  • Posted in thread: Barley Wine fermentation on 07-21-2011 at 05:27 PM
    You should put some yeast nutrient in for the first few days too, especially since it's
    underpitched.Would you boil that first? I always tell myself to do so, but in such cases as
    bottling tabs, where...
