    Brewed this about 6 weeks ago. Fermented at 58 F for about 4 weeks with Wyeast Kolsch yeast,
    then cold crashed for 2 weeks at 36. Just forced carbed a few days ago. This turned out
    delicious! Malty bu...

    So I force carbed the all grain recipe of this for 1 day, then let it sit at 11 psi for 4 days.
    It is already definitely my favorite beer I've ever made, I know it will get even better with
    age but I ...

    Just brewed this up the other day and its bubbling away! Used original grain bill, but cascades
    I had we're lower in %alpha so added a 45 min addition and subbed the 5 min to Amarillo.

    Ok guys brewing this up when I get the yeast, maybe in a week or so. Scaled the recipe up to
    5.5 gallons, and to match my average efficiency ~65%. Upped the bittering charge just a tad.
    Also added som...

    Just brewed this on Sunday. My actual mash temp ended up being 154, and my boil was only 75
    minutes because I spilled some of my sparge water (on my HAND-ouch. :mad:). OG was 1.064.
    Yeasties had me sc...

    Wow that sounds interesting! Good luck with it. And as for the I'll do my best.

    Hey guys, trying to create my own IPA. Reading Daniels' "Designing Great Beers", so that
    hopefully helps. Also trying to learn from my first attempt, which turned out ok with much room
    for improvement...

  • Posted in thread: Eductor (venturi) vs. air stone on 02-18-2013 at 09:18 PM
    The past few batches I have, don't know specifics on how much oxygen (ppm) it adds, but it
    seems to work very well. I've always had fast, vigorous fermentation without even shaking the
    carboy. You mig...

  • Posted in thread: To cold crash or not? on 02-07-2013 at 09:40 PM
    Hey all, wondering whether there is any advantage or disadvantage to cold crashing a porter
    before bottling? I know it won't make much difference in appearance but is there something else
    I'm missing?

  • Posted in thread: First IPA recipe, critiques? on 02-01-2013 at 09:19 AM
    Ok all, again, thanks for your advice. Plan on brewing tomorrow. To recap, I've adjusted the
    hop schedule with what I have on hand, altering the addition times for better use of
    flavor/aroma hops, whi...
