    I really wasn't shooting for anything more than an OG of about 1.070-1.075. So you're saying I

    With some high gravity recipes, it is suggested to repitch more yeast toward the end of the
    fermentation to make sure it is fully fermented. At what gravity should I consider keeping some
    yeast to rep...

    I doubt the extra 3 degrees did anything to the protein rest, since some say you can go as high

    if at al...

    I like their IPA, I'm in Texas. I bought one of their Maximus, ? a double IPA, but I haven't

    I found the spalt hops at NB, and bought those and some other goodies, so thanks for the idea.
    Brewing on May 27, I'll let you know how it goes.

    Good idea. I'll look tonite when I get home.

    I'm planning on brewing a munich helles, and the Beer Captured recipe calls for spalt and
    hallertau hops. I'm having a hard time finding spalt whole hops or spalt hop plugs, and I was
