    You didn't specify a yeast, but I'm assuming you're looking at using a higher attenuating
    strain like American Ale yeast. With a target ABV of 11% it looks like you're shooting for an
    FG of 1.026ish f...

    this online today. Could be worth checking out...when its available next year. Timing is nice
    because I'd been considering trying a chocolate stout using cocoa powder of cacao nibs, guess
    this will ...

    8 oz in a 1.070 gravity batch will leave plenty of sweetness. I used a half lb in an IPA that
    fermented from 1.075 down to 1.012 and it balanced out the bitterness pretty nicely in my
    opinion. Of cour...

    Cool! thanks for all the suggestions. Should be enough to keep me busy when I'm up there.
    Hopefully I'm on a tour at Surly in 6 days.

    JW Dover (Westlake) on Detroit between Clague and Columbia is a great store. Lots of grains,
    extracts, and equipment. The owner is friendly and will take time to bullsh*t with you. Rozi's

    1388 will give you all the apple and pear that you want. Keep it cool (around 68 F) for the
    first few days then let it ramp up.

    So I'm going to Minneapolis for a month for work. Where do I have to go while I'm in town? I've
    heard of Surly, but that's about it.

  • Posted in thread: Lager Yeast Starter on 02-04-2011 at 05:10 PM
    For a lager with a starting gravity in the mid 50s I would make a half gal starter with 2 packs
    MINIMUM. If you have to brew tomorrow, get another 2 smack packs. If you can't get them in
    time, you sho...

    Look up the CYBI Firestone Walker Union Jack recipe. As British IPAs go, it can't be beat.

  • Posted in thread: question about Wyeast 3068 on 01-21-2011 at 03:38 PM
    Only way to tell for sure is to take a reading. Some German and Belgian ale strains are pretty
    powdery and will maintain an inch or so of krausen after fermentation is complete. You could
    try swirling...
