    I brewed this yesterday; mostly everything was the same. Went with 8 pounds pilsner, 8 ponds
    2-row, and 2 pounds of the D-180. I only went with 1oz of Northern Brewer because I wanted a
    little but low...

    Use the pale!Sent from my iPhone using Home BrewAbsolutely. An all Pale Westy is a fantastic
    variation. Just completed one and bottled it 3 weeks ago. It has a moderate amount of
    carbonation now and t...

    I brewed this 10 days ago with an OG of 1.090 and the SG is currently 1.016. I was hoping for
    1.012. Ferm chamber is still at 82F hoping that will help it get a little lower. Bubbles only
    every 20-30 ...

    Just completed a carbonation review and taste test after 10 months in bottle conditioning.
    Noticed a pillowy chocolate head finishing with Belgian lace on the glass. A very nice RIS.

    Were there any traces of the D-180 left in the fermenter? I remember saq in the other thread
    used to add D-2 in the secondary but abandoned that practice after finding some left in his
    conical.Good po...

    This looks like a killer recipe. I want to add it to my recipes I have in brewmate but what
    style do I put it under. Belgian Dark Strong ale ? I could put it under any thing really
    because I don't pla...

    I was shocked how low it was, especially considering some issues I had. I actually checked it
    with three different hydros to make sure. Did a three liter starter with two packs of 3787.
    Magnum may not...

    Speaking of deviating from the recipe, just a quick comment and question. My first batch I had
    a wort chiller leak and ended up with a low OG (1.076). It turned out to be maybe the best beer
    I've ever...

    I brewed a similar attempt at a nice quad/Westy clone recently and just moved to the keezer for
    teritary ferm today (40*.) Had a question though... reading through this thread you have
    teritary temps ...

    Just tried that one. It predicts 18.3 SRM. So what's the story here? Is this an almost brown
    Saison? Why the 275 Lovibond candi sugar?Yes, it's a pretty brown. More like a Dubbel in SRM. I
    assumed tha...
