  • Posted in thread: bourbon soaked cherries - what beer? on 07-08-2016 at 02:02 PM
    I'm having a harder time with trying to come up with a beer style it *wouldn't* be good in.
    Maybe rauchbiers or double IPAs? Actually scratch the rauchbier, the smoke and bourbon would be
    good togethe...

  • Posted in thread: saison finished below 1 on 07-03-2016 at 02:56 PM
    To add to others and what's been said.A while back I did a big dark saison, I think it was
    above 1.090. Double decoction 154F mash temp. I also know I didn't have the perfect pitch rate
    (maybe 80% of ...

    do it.. try one... nobody will know..This^I take out sample bottles at the 1 week mark to check
    if they are starting to carb, it's very obvious when they aren't (this is with beers less than
    8%, anyth...

  • Posted in thread: Black IPA Feedback on 06-27-2016 at 07:40 PM
    Which grain would you think of swapping with the midnight wheat? I think the original recipe
    wanted some roast character to the beer. Seeing that it has chocolate and carafa 2 the roast
    flavors could....

  • Posted in thread: "Sour" beers not sour enough... on 06-22-2016 at 03:57 PM
    Well, I've had success souring with open-fermentation. In fact, one of our experiments became
    TOO sour, like throat-burning and acetic sour.Tried a beer with a commercial pedio pitch, but
    it's only ab...

    I have the darkstar 2.0, I had a burner that was the same style as the original dark star. I
    don't have experience with the other burners you have listed.Comparing the 2.0 with its banjo
    burner vs. wh...

  • Posted in thread: Oxidation in 12oz bottles but not 22oz. Why on 06-10-2016 at 03:38 PM
    Two things I've thought of recently.First, oxygen absorbing caps, I've always used these since
    day one. I don't know if you mentioned having using these. So its worth a try if you don't or
    don't know ...

  • Posted in thread: Oxidation in 12oz bottles but not 22oz. Why on 06-09-2016 at 12:14 AM
    I think on Brew Strong they were talking about this. I can't remember exactly what they said
    but if you look at the volume of the head space for the 22oz and the 12oz bottles they're very
    close. Also ...

  • Posted in thread: How do you calibrate your water volumes? on 06-06-2016 at 09:17 PM
    You could take a 1 gallon milk jug and measure water that way. I don't know how measuring 32
    cups of water wouldn't get you pretty close. I use a 1 gallon jug from a bottle of cider. I
    would hope that...
