    This is pretty common in my experience. No worries. Just give it a whiff efore pitching into
    your next brew

    You won't get 75% efficiency from one big batch sparge. Break up that sparge into 2 or 3
    batches and as stated above, make sure you're boiling off at a good rate.

    Brewed many versions of this depending on what I had on hand. This time its honey malt instead
    of c10, no Vienna and oats in place of carapils. Hops stay the same.

    Came across a good deal on a keggle and was thinking of picking it up for the occasional double
    batch since I have less time to brew these days. My main concern is chilling 11 gallons of
    beer. All I h...

    I'm over the beer festivals. I was even before I started brewing. I can talk with some people
    about beer, as long as they're not snobby... or uninformed to the point they have no business
    discussing t...

  • Posted in thread: Cloning HopHands by Tired Hands Brewing Company on 01-24-2016 at 02:50 AM
    Love their brews. I haven't attempted any clones, but I've certainly taken a note from their
    beer and an using a ton of oats in some of my recipes. Up to 20 percent. I'm not one for
    following recipes,...

  • Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 01-10-2016 at 02:07 AM
    Maybe similar, but not the real thing. Too flocculant. Haven't brewed yet, but the starter
    yeast cleared within a day after finishing. The real stuff i harvested from a can took a while
    to clear when ...

    My next heady will be w a new yeast. It's shipped in a can and called Barbarian. Claims to have
    200 billion cells as well. Got a starter going last night and it was ripping this morning.

  • Posted in thread: When do you give up on a WLP500 starter? on 12-27-2015 at 01:14 PM
    They always have expired yeast for half price at the lhbs. Most of the time they go off, but if
    it takes over 2 or 3 days i just toss them. Not worth ruining a batch. I've found a summer
    shipped batch...

    I know this post is 5 months old, but wouldn't champagne yeast be a bad idea? Those yeasts eat
    more sugar than an ale yeast, so might you not possibly end up with bottle-bombs? Unless you
    aren't using...
