  • Posted in thread: Diacetyl and Dry Hopping on 01-31-2014 at 02:45 AM
    I'm not convinced the oxygen trapped in the hops are the problem. First off, the beer is
    allowed to ferment for 2 weeks and is most likely fully attenuated by then. Second, the beer is
    crashed cooled ...

    I don't think diacetyl can comes from hops. It's metabolized by yeast from organic compounds in
    the malt. So I suspect the faults you're tasting are either present in the beer prior to dry
    hopping, an...

  • Posted in thread: Can you Brew It recipe for Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale on 01-28-2014 at 02:47 PM
    I've experimenting with the addition of gypsum, calcium chloride and lactic acid to control the
    wort pH prior to boiling. So far, these additions have helped greatly in reducing the body of
    the beers ...

    Another follow up. So I went ahead and experimented with acids and salt additions. On new
    year's eve, I brewed an english mild. Although the gravity is lower than the DBA, the beer type
    is very simila...

  • Posted in thread: Can you Brew It recipe for Firestone Walker Double Barrel Ale on 01-10-2014 at 03:24 PM
    I brewed this last year and I think this recipe is not quite right. I think it needs more
    bittering hops. The recipe above clocks in at 13 ibus while the Firestone website says DBA is
    around 30. Also,...

    Don't see myself ever doing a lager. I'm all about ales now.I've only brewed 3 or 4 lagers in
    like 8 years of homebrewing. The first one was crap because I didn't know what I was doing. But
    the last 2...

    American Light beer! I can get my water free from the tap without any effort than you very
    much!Sour ales. I've started to gain an appreciation for sour ales recently. I like to have
    them when I go ou...

  • Posted in thread: WLP 630 Limited Release Berliner Weisse on 11-14-2013 at 03:36 PM
    Gosh I wish I'd seen this thread before starting. Brewed a Berliner last weekend with WLP630.
    Original gravity clocked at 1.035 and about 5ibus. I did a full hour boil.I also did a kind of
    a mini star...

    Well it's been a long time since I last posted. I've been so busy that I haven't brewed
    anything since the DBA clone until today. I'd had a berliner weisse on deck for a long time so
    I decided to brew...

  • Posted in thread: Firestone DBA clone too malty on 07-03-2013 at 06:35 PM
    I don't have a sample of original DBA, but I've had some in the last couple of months and I'm
    almost certain my sample is a bit darker. But with so much chill haze, it's hard to tell of
    course the fin...
