    I'm just wondering what experiences others have had subbing these two yeasts with one another.
    In the yeast comparison charts I've seen, these are listed as the same or at least comparable
    strands. I'...

    I second much of what Philiosofool said. You've got an awful lot of specialty grains going on
    in what needs to be a drinkable hop forward style. Here's what I'd do:1. Ditch the carapils
    completely. Yo...

    I have an 8 gallon and ten gallon, and I love them. Great sturdy well made pots, I really can't
    think of anything bad about them for that price

    So I have a bock which has just been lagering for a month, and I'm wondering if I should add
    more yeast before bottling. I have seen it recomended but doesn't it kinda defy the point of
    lagering in th...

    It looks like they at least included what hops and malts they use on their website. No
    percentages or how the hops are used, but at least its something. I'd be curious as to what
    yeast they use too. O...

    Looks good, I really like your hop bill. The only thing I would change is the amount of crystal
    seems kinda high for a 3 gal batch of IPA. I'd cut the carapils to a quarter pound, and maybe
    bring the ...

    I've been messing around with Beersmith, and I've put this together on paper. It's a 5 gallon
    batch (because I have a 5 gallon set up), and I'm not getting fancy with the water - just
    bottled spring w...

    So you suggest that I add another ounce of Chinook and another ounce of Summit at 5 minutes and
    keep the flameout addition the same ? I worry that even at flameout, since I'm loading with
    high AA that...

    For a good American hop profile, I really like to load up on late hop additions. I usually
    throw a couple ounces in at 5 minutes, then a bunch more at flame out. Also, you may want to
    look into doing ...
