  • don't really watch much TV. SWMBO likes cooking reality (Top Chef, etc).
  • Tolkien is a great writer. Currently reading Game of Thrones though.
  • I brew on a Mr. Beer system (2 mini kegs at 2.5 gallon capacity each), but do all grain, partial mash, and clones. I have recently started making some good recipes of my own including a nice Wit Bier inspired by Blue Moon and a real Oktoberfest that is a nice and malty, the way it should be.

    What yeast did you use? That could be an issue. You are looking at about an 11% abv beer based
    on your estimated numbers so not all yeasts can handle that. Also, plenty of experiments have
    been done o...

    I haven't brewed it but I just had some more rajah last weekend. I'd say that recipe would at
    least get you close enough to evaluate if it is a clone (or a near clone) and wouldn't be a bad
    beer by an...

    Is onion typical for HT? I've never had it, but that flavor absolutely KILLS IPAs for me :(I
    had a case of the stuff and never picked up on it fresh (or even up to 3 months old). The
    alcohol get more ...

    seems to be more in line with the typical aa%. If you brew a lot of IPAs, especially dank &
    citrusy ones, this is a great hop for them. They are similar to Summit, Nugget, Columbus, and
    Apollo.I got...

    Leave it alone until at least June, maybe longer.

    I'd call it a pretty minor variance for what it's supposed to be. Did the kit call for added
    sugar or a booster pack? Those usually give you 1%. Also, check the hydrometer on just water.
    My tap (cold ...

    Bobbrews - where did you get the comet hops? Or anyone else that's sourced them?

  • Posted in thread: Heady Topper- Can you clone it? on 05-04-2015 at 03:07 PM
    It was bad overall. I used safeale5, but think it got too oxygenated. I've only had 2 HT, both
    in a beer swap and I tossed them. Think they were ultra-old. Nothing what people say about the
    flavor. So...

  • Posted in thread: Left Hand Milk Stout Clone on 05-04-2015 at 02:59 PM
    I don't like warrior (pretty much at all). The bittering is harsh and the aromatics are either
    straight grass or mild to nonexistent whenever I use it, even in post boil hopping and dry
    hopping. I lik...

    Temp control during the main fermentation can help with the rocket fuel syndrome. Also, yeast
    selection. Try an experiment where you use a yeast meant for fermentation as the primary
    purpose and I thi...
