Posted in thread: Need an APA Bittering Hop? on 01-13-2011 at 07:20 AM
I meant cloud as in get in the way of a clean hop profile not in terms of clarity. Sorry if
this was ambiguous. I agree that it is a mainstay of commercial APAs but I personally prefer
the style to be...
Posted in thread: BC question for blonde ale on 01-13-2011 at 01:57 AM
You should have fine carbonation with that much sugar. My guess would be the temperature. The
yeast is going to struggle a bit at the end of fermentation, there is alcohol present and they
have been d...
Posted in thread: Economical and quick wort cooling methods on 01-13-2011 at 01:50 AM
Wort chillers work great and are in my opinion worth every cent. A simple immersion chiller
isn't too expensive and will cut your chilling time in half easily or even more if you are
doing a partial b...

I'm a huge fan of Columbus for beers that I want to be hop forward and lighter. It's a great
bittering hop. I think it goes well with amarillo especially if you can use some columbus in 30
minute or l...
Posted in thread: Wyeast Strain similar to SafAle English Ale S-04 on 01-04-2011 at 05:04 AM
I think it is a closer match to the Fullers yeast, which is Whitelabs 002. There is chart
online that says 002 is the same as Wyeast 1968. I don't have any experience with the
whitbread yeast but th...
Posted in thread: Ranco gone wrong on 09-16-2010 at 02:45 AM
I bought a ranco about two months ago from a retailer on ebay. A few days ago the unit stopped
working. The wiring is good, the unit is getting power. It worked well for about six weeks
Posted in thread: Dry hop in primary? on 09-13-2010 at 06:51 AM
One advantage of adding hops to primary is the yeast's ability to use the oxygen that will be
added with the hops. This will promote a longer lasting beer. Sierra Nevada released a paper
Posted in thread: A question of altitude on 09-13-2010 at 06:39 AM
It doesn't matter. Temperature changes in the mash allow you to adjust the rate of the alpha
and beta amylases. This wouldn't be affected by the pressure difference due to your elevation.
That said yo...
Posted in thread: Bottle early and skip priming sugar? on 09-08-2010 at 05:42 AM
I think that if you are set on doing this it would be a good idea to do a satellite
fermentation rather than relying on the gravity of a previous batch. One of the homebrew heroes
on this forum runs t...
Posted in thread: Adding a splitter to a manifold on 06-02-2010 at 09:53 PM
I'm looking to increase the number of beers I can have on tap, but I don't want to buy another
gas splitter. I also don't want to go without a check valve. I was thinking about cutting a gas
line on t...
