    I attached a picture to my previous post but I don't see it. Anyone know what I did wrong?

    My fermentation frig is under repair so I am using my janky old fermentation box. But, what I
    want to show in the included picture is a method for capturing blow off yeast. Since the yeast

    I can't speak to a 10 gallon batch, but my starter regime consists of making a 4L starter of
    1.040 decanting and then capturing the blow off. This I believe is essential, once I get two or
    three days ...

    I brewed this recipe 4 months ago with minor tweaks. The recipe calls for 2.5 lbs of D180 but I
    only used 2 lbs since it comes in 1 lb packs. To compensate, I did a double decoction. With
    each decocti...

    Well then I suppose your answer is a difference of isomerization with a higher gravity
    wort.Yes, that has been my point all along. But what I have been trying to get at is this:Is
    the recipe shooting ...

    It could, but I'm guessing AA% variation is more at play than wort isomerization.No, it's not
    AA% variation. With my software, I entered the same AA% as the recipe on the first post with
    the O.G. set ...

    The recipe found in the first post of this thread says that the IBUs = 36.My software comes up
    with a different number but that could be due to my settings.I'm curious. Does this 36 IBUs
    calculation t...

    I have had great success with using gelatin in the past. I bloom for an hour in cold water.
    Heat to 160. Stir the solution into the cloudy beer for about 2 minutes. I usually get very
    clear beer in 2 ...

    Depends on just how pronounced the whisky barrel flavor is. If it's mild and supporting of the
    cider, then entering it as a common cider is fine. If the barrel is a dominant/major flavor,
    then enter i...

    If I make a cider that would be considered a Common Cider, Category 27A, (based on the 2008
    BJCP guidlines) and then I age it in a wooden whiskey barrel, would it still fit in the Common
    Cider categor...
