    Just tapped one using Galaxy only. I'm getting a touch of funk along with some tropical fruity
    notes. The slightest bit of tartness, and it gives me an impression of pineapple.I had a pretty
    old vial,...

    I want to say it's carbonic acid bite from the 30 psi for 24 hours, but I would think it would
    fade after those 6 days at 10. I stopped doing that a while back and just do a slow carb at
    serving press...

    My guess would be besides the low temps, how about both of those beers only using 2 row and the
    other was pilsner? Maybe throwing in some other less fermentable grains in there (crystal,
    carapils, whe...

    The one thing that will improve about most dark beers is to give them a lot of conditioning
    time. Most of my Porters/Stouts sit in a keg in my basement for about 3 months. I sometimes
    read on here how...

    Don't bash, but I have to agree with specharka. Of course I'm a little biased being on
    the east coast, and I've had some amazing stuff from the west, but my palette prefers the
    liquid gold com...

    Didn't realize you were going for a KBS clone.Give chloride a try sometime. Gypsum gives a
    drying effect to the beer. Chloride is great for stouts for body/mouthfeel. Pair it with a
    little gypsum and ...

    Looks good except maybe the Blackprinz seems out of place. I would expect it to be overshadowed
    by the chocolate and roasted malts. Unless you're using it to add a bit more color. I would
    personally u...

  • Posted in thread: FG too high, any saving this beer? on 01-08-2016 at 12:52 AM
    What's wrong with 1.026? I love my stouts in the 1.025 - 1.030 range, and they're not sweet. I
    say keg or bottle that sucker, and enjoy awesomeness! Nothing turns me off more than a stout
    that is too ...

    Good article. He's always left us on our own to create what he has done. I think a lot of
    strides have been made here to get close.As long as he keeps making the best beer in the
    country and possibly ...
