    Not quite what I'm after. It's a bit murky and more on the orangish brown side, which to this
    point I've had zero trouble getting to this color. That yellow up above on the previous post is
    right what...

    not sure if its still around - but mikkeller did one. which was a tasty in NZ its
    quite common given the hop is readily available most of the time.

    Thinking about trying nelson and calypso single hop. Anyone have any experience with these?Be
    careful with NS on its own.Some people aren't fans of it on its own. Its a great hop though.

    I owuld use Fresh/Frozen fruit in your secondary. let it sit for 2-3 weeks, and
    keg/'ll be nice and pink, and nice and cherry-fied.

    The hop debris and trub won't impact the viability of the yeast. The only thing you have to
    worry about is flavor impact, but you're pitching into a hoppy beer, so go for it.Cheers, I

    @StrongBrews - Can I ask where you got the conquest tap handle (the long sword one?)

    Do you guys leave your dry-hop hops in your secondary during cold crash? Guess there's not
    really any way to remove them if using pellet hops, but I'm wondering if this effectively
    extends the dry-hop...

    I should be ok to harvest yeast for another batch, if I use a hop bag for dryhops right?the
    plan is to brew Lagunitas Little Sumpin Sumpin with this yeast.

    I like the hop bill (but add a few more oz dry hops, I say), but the grain bill feels overly
    complicated. You have 5 different base malts, which smacks of the "I want everything" approach
    many of us t...

    5 different base malts?I think its a bit over complicated. Id get rid of you golden promise and
