    Rather than going back and forth asking questions, here is a link to my recipe with very
    detailed direction of how I did it. Recipe is at the very bottom of the page. Hopefully this
    helps and you can ...

    Did you ever end up adding in some Lactic? A guy at the LHBS here brewed a batch and didn't add
    any. He was disappointed just like you and noted the same lack of tropical fruit. Not sure his
    pitching ...

    Just out of curiosity, how are you dry hopping this and are you taking that time into account?
    If I remember right, this recipe has a 7 day dry hop.

    If you are only shooting a few points low (2-6), I'd actually say it is probably BeerSmith and
    the way you take measurements. A fundamental "law" of brewing is that post mash/pre-boil you
    will never h...

  • Posted in thread: Getting the right flavour characteristics out of hops on 08-27-2015 at 04:48 PM
    Yup definitely can manipulate hop characteristics by adjusting the timing and temperature of
    addition. Unfortunately, a lot of this comes from trial and error. The best way to learn about
    a hop is wor...

    If you don't mind, details would be nice. I'd be interested to see what your experiences are.

  • Posted in thread: I'm Gushing! on 08-07-2015 at 06:02 PM
    probably not a problem. I would have thought that the bottles with a hop pellet in them would
    have all foamed more than normal. I'll bet you just opened it too soon after chilling and that,
    plus the p...

    My original miscalculation was based on beersmith number. It's why your target OG was 1.065 and
    you actually had 1.081. If you plug in the same exact numbers as all grain you get the correct
    starting ...

  • Posted in thread: Low Attenuation (S-05) in Milk Porter on 08-02-2015 at 09:18 PM
    How big was the batch size? Using extract and those grains to get up to 1.081 would be around
    3.75 gal. If it was larger, like a typical 5 gallon batch, I would question the instrument
    making the grav...

  • Posted in thread: Beginning OG 1.030 - where did i go wrong? on 07-29-2015 at 11:11 PM
    Let it go. Hope it has a lacto infection and maybe you have just made the first black Berliner
    Weiss. Seriously though, you need to buy a kit beer with good instructions or have an
    experienced brewer ...
