My first ever brew was a standard APA with Cascade. I wanted Amarillo but was too hard to get.
Your ode to Cascade has reminded me I need to do an Epic Pale Ale clone....You know, I've never
had the p...

Cascade was the very first hop I used in a recipe and also the first hop plant I tried in the
garden. If I could only choose one hop to ever use again, it'd be Cascade due to its
versatility (aroma an...

You know, it's not super sexy like mosaic, amarillo or citra. It doesn't pack a huge alpha
punch like simcoe. But you know what? It's the greatest American hop in my mind. All these new

Just prepared a starter of this, looking to get it into a 1.090 quad. Should be awesome. The

Is "splash racked" a euphemism for "oxidized horribly while moving to the keg", or am I

the wine industry to kill sulphur. And when it comes down to it, a little bit of oxidation is
way less obno...

I splash racked it, killed the smell. Tell us how the beer turns out!

Did you extract the Orange and coriander in vodka?

I'm so glad this thread was resurrected! I'd been in a bit of a beer rut. I went out and bought
a four pack of Hop House and I'm going to get a Blonde going next week. I'm thinking just
Pilsner malt, ...

Overall my Belgian Pale Ale is good. I'm backing off on using this strain again, however. I'm
just going to use White Labs 530. The extra $2 makes a world of difference in my book. It's not
a bad yeas...
