    As noted by another poster - this is what I do. Not saying it is right or required.I condition
    all my grains, barely, wheat, oats - everything. 2% water by weight, sprayed on with a spray
    bottle. Exam...

    Depending on what you like - 2 row and 1.5 lbs of Victor or Vienna (I'd go with Vienna) and
    nothing else. Or, add a bit of the C-120 for a more mid-West/East Coast style. 4.5 lbs of other
    malts in add...

    If your three choices were the only choices, I would move to a warmer room and dryhop. But, 59
    is cool for an ale. I can't think of much other than Wyeast Scotch Ale that ferments that low.
    Assuming y...

    I just opened a fresh one pound bag of Citra - 2015 crop. It did not smell like the 2014 crop
    to me. Lots of onion and garlic - not the big citrus from past years. I brewed with it anyway.

    an IPA now th...

    I have read no blow off tube either. Just put some foil, taped on the four corners, over the
    hole in the lid.Thanks for the input folks.

    I have been brewing some Saisons lately. I have used 3711 and Omega 500 (advertised as a hybrid
    between 3711 and 3724). Looking to go with a straight 3724 soon. I know to ferment hot. But, I
    am lookin...

    Sounds really cool. Subscribed.

    I try to seal off the container is some fashion. I use at least tin foil. Also, I keep my yeast
