Posted in thread: How should I combine these hops? on 01-23-2015 at 10:50 PM
I would use Magnum to bitter @60 to 70-80 IBU. Then Do a 165F hop steep for 30 min with equal
parts Amarillo and Citra and half as much Mosaic. So a ratio of 2:2:1. Dry hop generously with
the same ra...

Damn, thats too bad. I was hoping this would have worked out. When I finally get around to
making this I am probably going to go with WLP575. Seems like a beer like this is going to take
a few batches...

Ok, but then we would end up with bottle bombs since eventually the bottles sit at 70F+ for

there are no more...

But if they do bottle with a lager yeast for bottle refermentation they'd be doing it well
under 70F.I'll be watching to see how things turn out. I've been working on the recipe for some
time now and ...

Too expensive/complicated to keep multiple strains tightly separate in the same brewery,

According to Brew Like a Monk, Karmeliet is fermented with 2 yeasts. Wether or not that is 2
yeasts for the primary fermentation or one for primary and a second for re-fermentation in the
bottle, I do...

Sure, could be the style. But still it lets me down every time. And there are few styles I
don't like one or another example of. Perhaps its not just me... or there would be more

Guiness. Remains the most overrated overhyped beer I know. Every twentysomething with the
faintest hint of irish blood in him or a cousin that went to notre dame for a semester or who
hangs out at the...
