1.030 is wayyyyyyyy tooooo high. Did you use an hydrometer or a refractometer? Refractometers
give high (and inaccurate) readings when alcohol is present.What yeast? Some Belgians stall
around 1.030, ...

4 lbs, that is great. That would be about 12 to 14 ozs dry. Should be a great beer.Your biggest
issue is going to be losses due the shear volume of hops you'll need to use. I would think

Posted in thread: fermentation time & need to repitch yeast at bottling on 08-27-2016 at 01:41 AM

You want Chouffe, then you want to end around 1.006.Looks OK.I'd drop the caramalt, and add

over a week.

Anyone used grapefruit juice in a beer? Everything I have read says using citrus juices is not
a good idea, so I have never done it. I have only used zest.Sam Adams 'Rebel Grapefruit IPA'
says it uses...
Posted in thread: Do we really need to dry to ~10% moisture on 08-08-2016 at 01:32 AM
I air dry my hops on a screen. I'm wondering if I need to dry them completely, and maybe they

off some arom...

1 lb of extract vs 1 lb of sugar will probably add about .002 to the final gravity and make it
