  • Brewed in college in the early '90's, just getting back into things. About to pop my third batch, a 2IPA. Looking forward to working out the kinks of this recipe, then moving on to some darker, bolder beers.
  • Up next will be some kind of juniper pale ale.

    (recipe was an IPA).When I bottled, I was blown away by the aroma of lemongrass and was worried
    that it would b...

    Well I plopped a small handful of stalks in at 3 min. Soriachi went in at 5 min. I have added
    about 2 pounds of honey at around 5 minutes to this otherwise very basic "two hearted" recipe a

    Brewing with lemongrass fresh picked from my yard tonight. Doing an IPA, sort of a honey-amped
    version of a two-hearted base recipe.Got a couple ounces of soriachi ace, considering switching

    So far all of 'em! But I don't have any that have aged that long.Even 2IPAs, which I thought
    needed to be downed within a couple months, have been great when I find them in the back of the
    fridge 8 mo...

    How long has it been in the primary? Oh, and what was the temp when you took your reading?I'll
    avoid giving suggestions since I'm a rookie, but thinking out loud (well, you know what i mean)
    I'd say i...

    Well, I for one would have a VERY hard time not lying about those scars and coming up with some

    I was, th...

    Not that I am asking because I know WTF I'm talking about, but:1. How long was it in the bucket
    before you opened it for this reading? Was it the first reading - and if not did the first
