  • Posted in thread: What's the flavor I don't like? (Fat Tire/Stone IPA) on 09-17-2013 at 06:19 PM
    I think you are describing crystal malts which would make sense. But if it is specifically the
    toasty/nutty note that Fat Tire has going on, I am absolutely convinced it is a small addition
    of pale ch...

    Sometimes adding fruit to secondary can kick start a vigorous refermentation. I wouldn't worry!
    If the yeast are going that crazy, risk of a secondary infection is very low.

    Just wanted to update as I cracked a bottle last night. I know you are probably thinking that
    this is just another boring brown ale, but this beer is awesome! Its one of the rare times that

    Habanero: Wooh! Good amount of heat in the back of the throat. The delicious earthy flavor hits
    right before the heat but just barely. For me, it's too much heat on its own about 80% of the
    time... I ...

  • Posted in thread: Do you ever just make up a recipe and say "Suuure why not?" on 04-30-2013 at 06:15 PM
    I think this is a great approach to brewing. I like to picture a beer in my head using your (as
    one poster put it) "taste imagination". Do you want citrus notes? Banana in the nose? Caramel?
    Toasty or...

    I think noblebrew is right, the colonists are going to be drinking hooch. How many acres of
    barley will need to be grown to keep a colony flush with beer? Probably way to much domed
    realestate that wi...

    I used a french variety of mint, called banana mint (yes it has a hint of banana) in a Biere de
    Garde. Needless to say, the beer came out really really weird. I'm still not sure if it was the
    herbs or...
