Not nessesary if you have an extra keg for aging. Kegs are ideal for keeping out light and
oxygen. Just let it age in the keg a few months before serving or bottling.I was contemplating
that as well. ...

I brewed this RIS a couple weeks back and in the thread it seems like most people racked from
primary to secondary after a month. I normally never use a secondary in my beers, but am a
little weary of...

Is it really necessary to rack this to the secondary? I never really use a secondary anymore,
but being this one is aging a little longer than my typical brews I thought I'd ask. I plan on
kegging it ...

I don't think there's any benefit to do that. You're still using the same amount of water to
pull the sugars from the grains. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Any word on how this recipe turned out? It came out great! If I brew it again I'd back down on

critique was ...

Thanks guys. I want to leave the Mosaic in there to have some citrus notes. I should have said
I don't want it straight up, 100% dank. Anyway, my plan is to brew 10 gallons of this on Friday

I've done numerous SMaSH beers with just straight Mosaic and they're a tad too much on the
fruity side so I'd like to add some dankness to a low ABV IPA I'm working on. I'm thinking I'll
throw in some...

the old sculpin used to be super fruity I used to huff it at the brewery smelled like tropical
fruit punch.Yeah, this one is too fruity for my taste, but I'll certainly still drink it! Any
idea the cu...

Finally got around to trying this and it's quite tasty, however much fruitier than the normal
Sculpin so something is amiss with the hops. Too much Amarillo maybe? It's a little lighter in
color as we...

I ended up brewing a SMaSH with Azacca and Pilsner malt. Right now it's a week away from being
kegged so we'll see how it turns out![*]13 lb Pilsner Malt[*].75 oz Azacca @ 90 min[*]1.5 oz
