    I've been using a small FWH in all of my hoppier beers lately. The smoother bitterness it
    provides melds well with this style. I also tend to use a smallish addition at around 10min, as
    well as large ...

    I mashed mine at 153F for 60min. I will admit my last beer finished a bit high (1.018 IIRC),
    but I've heard that can be an issue with first generation Conan. I was shooting for around
    1.013. With the ...

    The old adage is brew with what tastes good. If possible, I'd suggest trying to get a sample
    post-filtration, pre-softening. Depending on the iron source, this may be enough to remove or
    reduce it bel...

    I meant to give an update on this. It turned out fantastic. A few modifications were needed
    (link) Huge notes of pineapple and mango. Underlying notes of other tropical fruit, citrus and
    light pine/da...

    I absolutely love to hear this. I put a gallon of my last batch off to the side and dosed it
    with brettanomyces, and have some wood cubes soaking in malbec to be added. I didn't use nearly
    as much win...

    I just transferred this to a secondary. It'll be going into my keezer as soon as I clear some
    space. The transfer sample already tastes great.This beer really dried out though. The
    hydrometer sample i...

  • Posted in thread: what rum to soak in cubes? belgian strong on 05-26-2016 at 02:06 AM
    I have a couple of projects coming up I've been thinking about using rum soaked cubes for. It
    sounds like we're all on the same page. I prefer the darker rums. They have characters that I
    think will m...

    It took a while, but mine cleared. I did cool the wort portion before adding to the juice. It
    took around a 4-5 weeks in the carboy for the yeast/protein/etc to drop. I suspect cold
    crashing or gelati...

    Nope, I wouldn't. But thats just me.Is there any particular reason, or just a gut feeling? I
    can respect both.The density of silicone oil is similar to water, though actually a little less
    which is wh...

    I'm getting ready to set up some sour fermentations that will likely become part of a solera.
    One of the bigger issue is accidentally letting the airlocks run dry due to the long aging
    times.Do you th...
