  • Posted in thread: Achieving a silky/pillowy/creamy mouthfeel (a la Hill Farmstead)? on 07-02-2015 at 06:19 PM
    So a hopstand is positive for mouthfeel not only because of general oil saturation but also due
    to a reaction with the yeast. Well, that I like to hear since I am a big proponent of
    hopstands. More ab...

    If i am not mistaken your Galaxy dryhop spent about 9 days in the fermenter. How come the beer
    didn't got grassy?Also here is a "secret" in exchange, it's about hop glycosides and stuff:I
    tried Lallzy...

    Someone mentioned somewhere that he achieved maximum juice by doing a hopstand below 170F
    instead of flame-out.I tried a lower temp hop stand on a wit I posted about last week. Didn't
    feel like it gav...

    He dryhopped 3 days into the fermentation? Did he removed them before kegging?I left the first
    dose of dry hops behind when I racked into the keg (where the second dose awaited, which will
    be in conta...

  • Posted in thread: Treehouse Brewing Julius Clone on 07-01-2015 at 03:35 PM
    Not intended to be a clone, but I posted recipe/tasting for my Northeast-style IPA yesterday -
    WY1318, plenty of chloride, wheat flour in the mash, and loads of Galaxy and Simcoe (a juicy,
    hoppy, beer...

  • Posted in thread: 3F dregs on 06-29-2015 at 01:52 PM
    One of my favorite batches was 100% 3F dregs: can always be hit or miss, especially with
    older bottles. That said, the aroma of a young starter may have little resemblance to the
    finished beer. Mine...

  • Posted in thread: Which sour to add cherries to? on 06-25-2015 at 01:16 PM
    If you only plan on fruiting one of these three, then pick the one you like the most.Out of
    curiosity, why? The cherries will just cover up the subtle complexities of an already well
    balanced sour. I ...

    Looking at my notes - 66F ambient for the first 3 days then ramped up to 68F, but I'm only
    brewing in 2.5g batches.Mine started at 62 ambient, and I've moved it up from there. Your wort
    temperature wa...

    bottled was 4.75 gallons at FG 1.008 with:250 mL slurry of vigorous brett starter3.0 ounces of
    dextrose12 w...

  • Posted in thread: Treehouse Brewing Julius Clone on 05-29-2015 at 01:36 PM
    I brewed a Hill Farmstead Edward clone using 1318 and the yeast was too prominent from what I
    remember. My palate should be pretty calibrated since I was just in Burlington,VT in Feb and
    Edward was ev...
