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

seems to be more in line with the typical aa%. If you brew a lot of IPAs, especially dank &

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?

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

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...
