    This is pretty much what Trillium does. They only use Columbus in the kettle to achieve the
    bittering they want and then they vary the dry hop and throw a TON aroma/flavor hops in the
    beer with a tiny...

    100% this. I suspect conformational bias will come in to play for those who say that it is a
    "step change" or "unbelievably better". I would want to believe that all that extra effort paid
    off in the ...

    I brewed this on 11/6 and kegged it two weeks later on 11/20. I didn't have the equipment for a
    closed transfer, so I did what I could: I purged a keg with CO2, and then used my racking cane
    to fill t...

    Didn't mean to derail this thread.A theory I'm kicking around is the use of brett either for
    100% of fermentation, or added after, in order to scavenge as much excess O2 as possible to
    prolong shelf l...

    In regard to the LoDO brewing ..... I am "familiar" with the concept and I whole-heartedly
    agree that O2 is bad news for beer. I have not looked into a lot of the recent LoDO home
    brewing strategies.....

    This^^^ looks amazing!! I haven't done too many hoppy beers, 2 hearted and a couple others so
    I'm not good with hop combos. I have citra and mosaic but no galaxy. Could I sub Amarillo?
    Thanks in advan...

    New "Ne" pale ale, been in the keg for 2 days now.Been doing more experimenting with EKG and
    Chinook.I am really digging the blend. The beer was 100% clear prior to Dryhopping (used
    WLP002)Now I cant ...

    More importantly, I've found that the mash temp is by far the most critical aspect of head
    retention. I think i've stumbled upon the magic sequence of temperature steps to make beer with
    great head (3...

    Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with either 1.5 Citra:1.5 Mosaicor 1:1:1 with
    citra/mosaic/azacca.Those would be my first two choices with the hops you mention.If I was
    going to use centenn...

    That is interesting. Do you fly sparge? I adjust my HLT to 5.45-5.55 before heating it up, so
    I'd guess my preboil pH is around the same range on all beers. Should I be adjusting my preboil
    pH down al...
