    You have nothing to worry about. I've done it twice with no issues.+1 to this. Never had any
    issues with pumpkin residue. But I always rinse well after. I probably only clean my cooler MLT
    with oxycle...

  • Posted in thread: Want to brew a hefewiezen on 09-24-2013 at 01:28 PM
    I agree. Just made a hefe with Briess 2-row because I was out of pils at the time. Still tastes
    great though! Hard to tell any differences.

    Ive only done one batch with 2565 and here is what I can tell you. Fermentation took 3 weeks at
    58 degrees. Mine got down to 1.010. Took FOREVER to clear up, 2 months lagering with gelatin
    added when ...

    From everything I have read and learned about citra you have to be careful with dry hopping. I
    have heard a couple pro brewers indicate they only dry hop with citra for 3-4 days. A full 7
    days seems t...

    Awesome! Count me in, thanks. I'm james_ehrman@msn.com. What's the best practice for splitting

  • Posted in thread: How long to age a Christmas Ale? on 08-19-2013 at 12:54 PM
    depends on the gravity of the beer. Stronger beers need time for the alcohol to soften and
    blend, especially with spices. The spices will begin to fade after several months of aging, but
    if you brew n...

  • Posted in thread: Citra hops and off flavors on 08-18-2013 at 02:32 PM
    Why not? I used only Citra in a saison and it turned out great.because citra is too precious of
    a resource to be used as a bittering hop. Why waste an outstanding flavor/aroma hop for
    bittering when y...
