    Tucson Homebrew Club will be at 1055 tonight for our monthly meeting. Come on out an join us

    Yup, should be good. I had that when I was working with WLP007 (I think). My first starter had
    that and I didn't get a clear enough answer, so I dumped it and started again. At the LHBS I
    noticed a co...

    Instead of going to NHC I'll be taking care of my daughter, grocery shopping and continuing on
    with everyday life. I'll try to get a starter on the stir plate at some point to prep for a
    future brew.

    I definitely agree with the whirlpool calculator on Beersmith. I usually just ignore flameout
    IBU's on IPA's and such.Great info, I look forward to more discussion.

    No problem. Glad to hear it worked out for you.

    I bagged them and weighed them down the first few times. Now I don't bother. I just toss the
    hops right in there and save the hassle and get better contact with the beer. When you dry hop
    in the futur...

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopping on 05-24-2014 at 10:04 PM
    You can save yourself the trouble of getting them out and just send 3/4 of the hops you would
    have used to me :fro:. On a serious note, when using this many hops, have you noticed a grassy
    or vegetal ...

  • Posted in thread: Hop flavor without the bitterness on 05-24-2014 at 01:21 PM
    Only thing I would say is that a pound a crystal is a lot, to me, on a 6.25 lb grain bill. I
    tend to think that crystal gets in the way of good hop flavor though, and avoid it when doing
    hop forward b...

    158 mash temp?Helps give session beers a decent body. It's what I mashes my 4%ABV IPA at and it
    had about an average body for an IPA.
