Posted in thread: Märzen Recipe Critique on 07-05-2016 at 03:33 PM
Your recipe looks good, I don't think I'd change anything there. I made my first lager, a
märzen, back in March and followed a similar process. I didn't do a decoction and it came out
great! If I reme...
Posted in thread: My first try for 100% brett IPA on 04-28-2016 at 03:58 AM
I haven't tried brux by itself for primary fermentation, but I would just make sure to do a
large starter and give it plenty of time. Brett takes longer to propagate than sacc. Give it at
least a week...

1. Keep the mash temp the same as you would for a normal ipa (148-150), pitch rate for 100%

strain but mi...
Posted in thread: ECY20 and virtually no acid? on 01-30-2016 at 09:32 PM

Thanks for the pic, I think the ultra barrier might be a better option with my space
constraints. It would be a pain to get kegs in and out if the lines aren't coiled pretty
tightly on top of the kegs...

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but I'm in the process of buying all the parts for my
keezer and want to clarify before purchasing. I have been researching different beverage lines
and the B...
Posted in thread: When to add coffee in oak aged beer on 12-21-2015 at 06:12 AM
I second adding the whole beans to the fermenter. I just brewed a coffee chocolate stout with 4
oz of beans and 6 oz of cacao nibs. I added both 5 days before bottling and it was pretty
intense right ...
Posted in thread: Whats beers to start with on 12-17-2015 at 01:25 AM
The only beer on your list that has souring microbes is duchess de Bourgogne. New Holland is
Brett trois, which has recently been discovered to be a sacch strain. And as agate mentioned
Orval only has...
Posted in thread: Travelling from Maine to NYC. Brewery stops? on 11-25-2015 at 05:37 AM
My favorite breweries in NYC are all in Brooklyn. If you have time to hit up a few I would say
