You are not required to tighten the gap with malt conditioning, it merely affords you the
ability without the negatives. If you have great efficiency and zero problems vorlaufing,
draining, and/or spa...
Posted in thread: Hop Age on 08-04-2014 at 10:33 PM
I tend to use BeerSmith 2's 'Hop Age Tool' just to try for some accuracy, but I tend to brew
IPA's where the change from 80 IBU's to 70 IBU's does not mean much. I have lots of 2011 & 2012
hops in my ...
Posted in thread: Anti-Foam Sources, hopefully non-silicone on 07-30-2014 at 07:30 PM
I reached out to birkocorp, who makes PatcoteŽ 376, one of the non-silicone based anti foams,
to see if anyone carried in smaller quantities. He responded that Adventures in Homebrewing
carried it, al...
Posted in thread: Citra dry hop in a Pils? on 07-23-2014 at 01:02 AM
To be honest i think it might be great with two onces, but I'm not sure. It's a very strong
aroma, so i would go more towards 0.5-0.75oz Citra dry hop. I think a light hand so if it has
any negative e...

I degassed one I had left and it's FG was 1.017. I used the refractometer and got 11.2brix; so
combined that means approx 1.090 SG.The bottle says 1.085 SG, which would put FG at 1.012 for
9.7% ABV. S...
Posted in thread: Douglas Fir, or other conifers, in lieu of hops on 06-19-2014 at 10:09 PM
This is a really late response but I just made a rye ipa with concolor fir and it's awesome.
The new growth tastes and smells and tastes like lime, lemon, tangerine and has some bittering
quality. I u...

It really is a pretty awesome deal if you are buying 3 or more pounds of hops. At 3lbs it was
about $1/oz shipped to PA, at 4lbs it was $0.90/oz and right now the 7lbs I would purchase (if
I didn't ha...

However, new customer to farmhouse, how the heck do you order 4oz hops? I see nowhere to click
for ordering/updating/adding to cart on the 4oz page.You put how much of each hop you want and
then the a...

I use Patcote 376 which is oil based and tasteless so it does not need to be filtered out. I
used about 1/4 tsp in my boiling 4L starter and it worked like a charm. Have not tried it yet

Get Fermcap NT instead of Fermcap S if you are worried about the filtering requirement. Fermcap
AT is also an alternative.Some quick googling and I can't find anyone selling the Fermcap NT.
