    23 psi at 40* is 3.5 vols, that's going to take a lot of line to balance. I don't try to carb
    my beers to style in the keg, 2.5 vols is fine for me for everything including wheats and
    Belgains, but ev...

    Whatever you use to bitter I would bring all that centennial and simcoe from 45 and 30 minutes
    to like 10 min or less, and add some more flameout or whirlpool hops - this is a big IPA. I do
    like the h...

  • Posted in thread: Rye Pale Ale: How much rye? on 08-20-2014 at 01:41 PM
    I think this is a lot personal taste but I find I like at least 20% to feel it's noticeable. I
    have gone as high as 22% rye malt plus 8% flaked rye in a pale ale that was all base malt
    (basically Jami...

    There's also this on the site, and it says 10 wks. :confused:

    I have no idea why they recommend that. IPA's should be consumed young IMO, and it's not like
    it's even that huge at around 1.070. My schedule for that would be something like 2 wk primary,
    5-7 day dr...

    It's likely going to finish high and be sweeter. If you take Nilo's data on fermentability,
    medium crystal malt will be about 60% fermentable as opposed to 80% for 2 row. So normally just
    a small bump...

    Does 1.25 gallon boil off seem like a lot?It depends on the surface area of the pot, how high
    you have the burner turned up, humidity in the air, etc. As a ballpark I boil off about .75 gal
    per hr in ...

    CaraWheat is a crystal/caramel malt.^
