    So I agree that the Brett Idea might be the best but It will take quite a long time and I don't
    know if I want to make those buckets brett buckets forevermore. I was about to go with an
    Imperial Oaked...

    Depends a lot in what it's like but I'd consider upping the gravity with DME and invert and
    aging with Brett to make an old ale. You can then make a third beer by blending the result back
    with a batch...

    I own and operate a small brewery and one of the fun parts of brewing on this scale is the
    ability to play around with 5-10 gallons of a batch. For example, I pulled off 5 gallons of a
    black saison an...

    the OD on your lines should be 7/16" I don't care what the lines you have were sold as you need

  • Posted in thread: Munich/Vienna in an IPA? on 09-11-2015 at 12:55 AM
    I think 100% Vienna would make a fine IPA. Maybe add a *tiny* bit of Midnight Wheat or Carafa
    III or roasted barley to adjust the color.I did a 100% Vienna IPA w/ Azzaca hops this summer
    and it turned...

  • Posted in thread: using concentrated fruit juice to boost ABV in IPAs on 08-17-2015 at 04:19 PM
    I happen to have 3 bottles of concentrated juice from this same company (passion fruit, guava
    and cashew). I was planning on using the passion fruit one next week on a gallon of a wheat
    beer that I br...

  • Posted in thread: is it too late for a diacetyl rest? on 08-14-2015 at 07:52 PM
    Sorry I never updated about my beer but yes the d rest, even after the bulk of fermentation had
    finished, worked. It took a while but the final product was very good and had no off flavors.
    One thing ...

  • Posted in thread: using concentrated fruit juice to boost ABV in IPAs on 08-14-2015 at 06:49 PM
    So I had a crazy thought. I hate sweet, malty IPAs. I think hoppy and sweet are conflicting
    flavors and therefore I quite often use sugar to dry out my IPAs, especially ones that are 7ish
    ABV and abov...

  • Posted in thread: Commerical IPAs that you are sure use corn sugar... on 07-24-2015 at 01:05 AM
    Dude. You get better beer than me. I'm fairly certain Ranger uses some sugar, so New Belgium
    should have you covered there. If you can get Fresh Squeezed I'm almost certain it doesn't.Take
    me with you...
