    Per Aidan, it sounds like you just need to brew up a summer ale and dry hop with some bird
    sheet. Brother-in-law can't get enough of the stuff huh? Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Just so you know, you can use 2%AA hops even if the recipe called for 4%. Just use double the
    amount! Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Was this your first beer where you were shooting for gravity of 1.085+? Typically your
    efficiency will suffer quite a bit on higher gravity brews because it's hard to get all the
    sugars out without pu...

    Well even on the low end (OG 1.085 FG 1.015) that's asking for 85% attenuation. 001 can get you
    there but it'd be dicey with that much alcohol and that much caramel. I'd consider dropping
    your caramel...

    Depends what yeast you're using and your target FG. 9% caramel will leave you a fair amount of
    unfermentables so if you are using an English yeast strain i'd mash low like 148. If you're
    using somethi...

    Thanks! I hadn't noticed the description of a Munster Alt. While not exactly the same (mine
    isn't sour and doesn't use wheat) it is lighter in color and lower in gravity. I think this
    confirms for me ...

    Hi I brewed what I would call a german pale ale. Similar malt profile to an american pale ale
    (although more munich/aromatic then I would put into an american version) but with german hops
    and wyeast ...

    I would also over bitter if you're going to age for any significant length of time. That way
    when hops drop out it will still be hop forwardSent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Nah. Typically barrel aging and IPA don't mix. IPAs are all about fresh hop aroma, flavor, and
    bitterness. If you age it in barrels your going to lose a lot of IBUs and your aroma will be
    gone. Barrel...

    Can't really sub chocolate rye for cara rye. Totally different - one is heated to carmelize the
    sugars giving sweetness, the other is Kilned then roasted to give more bitter/nutty flavors. If
    you must...
