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...

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...

Ok, so I am leading an advanced tour tmrw with a local company that does brewery tours via bus
every weekend. The standard tours are geared towards beer initiates but this will be a "401"
tour. It was...
Posted in thread: what's your preferred FG on an IPA? on 07-20-2015 at 07:57 PM
As low as possible. Sweetness cuts hops IMO. Conan (my favorite IPA yeast, the heady topper
strain) is an exception as it can finish high and still not taste sweet.
Posted in thread: Bottling with raw habanero on 07-19-2015 at 04:21 PM
The problem with putting a pepper in is that the beer will continue to get hotter and hotter
and you will also just be guessing about the correct amount. (a whole habenero is insane btw!)
If you do wa...
Posted in thread: Ipa stuck at 1.030 help me plz on 07-19-2015 at 12:39 AM
Make sure your hydrometer is calibrated. Also, there is no way that 1.030ish means that all the
fermentable sugars have been consumed unless you mashed really, really high. Is it possible
that your th...

Don't do this! If you put anything inside of a bottle it will create nucleation sites and gush
like crazy when you open it. instead make a tincture. (soak chopped, de-seeded peppers in
vodka) After 3 ...
