Posted in thread: Is DMS a Concern? - Boiled with Lid On on 05-25-2016 at 10:11 PM
Used to boil on a crappy stove and HAD to keep the lid on with just a crack open or the wort
wouldn't boil. Never any DMS. These days I don't leave the lid on but geneally do 20 minute
boils to speed ...
Posted in thread: Gelatin fining beer and its effect on hop flavo on 05-25-2016 at 02:25 PM
Had a friend do an APA split batch in which half was cold crashed with gelatin and half was
just bottled. The second one had much more hop flavor. Hard to discount that but I keep on
hearding people w...
Posted in thread: Stout or Porter - What did I make? on 05-25-2016 at 05:48 AM
Differentiating stouts and porters according to whether unmalted roasted barley was used or not
is pretty modern. IIRC unmlated roasted barley wasn't used at all until relatively recently,
not until t...

Recipe looks fine. How much time did you give it? US05 can take some time to drop out.

brown sugar w...

Yeah just one oz of citra isn't going to do too much.
Posted in thread: full boil? on 05-22-2016 at 04:54 AM
Not doing a full boil isn't a bit deal unless you want hoppy beer.I do 12 gallon boils with a
big-ass heating stick so you don't need a stove.

Had an all-Azacca pale ale and was wonderful. As said upthread it work well with sweeter pale
Posted in thread: Adding Crystal Malts vs Mashing at a Higher Temp on 05-18-2016 at 07:25 AM
Hmm. I've got plans to brew a Goose Island Matilda clone that calls for 1.25 lb. dark brown
sugar. That sounded cloying to me, so I was already planning to dial it back to .5 lb. and make
up the diffe...
Posted in thread: Can you ferment safeale 05 too cold? on 05-18-2016 at 03:21 AM
US-05 can be a bit lazy about starting in any case so with it cold it'll be very sluggish. Too
cold gives some peach taste as does too hot with 05 but it does better with high temps than
most clean ye...
