    chips in Knob Creek and I am going to transfer it on top of those.I will let you know how it
    tastes in anothe...

    looking forward to your response, a friend and I are going to malt our own grains soon for a GF
    beer.

    Ok. I will try and find what kind of grains they were. I steeped them at 160* for 30 mins.
    Thanks for the tip on the American yeast. The Columbus hops were 14% the centennial were about
    7 and the casc...

    Esters are one of the key characteristics of wheat beers, which can be formed when English Ale
    yeasts are fermented at too high of a temperature. I would look into fermentation control for
    your next b...

    If you used extract and did a partial boil then there is a good chance that the water and wort
    were not fully mixed when the OG reading was taken. This is a very common problem. With the
    recipe I can ...

    Can you post the recipe? A lot of this just doesn't sound right.I used 3 gallons of water and

    Its 2.7% ABV?That could be a probelm. 7oz of hops in a beer that is 2.7% is waaay off.What kind
    of yeast did you use? Are you sure the OG is correct?I used a vial of white labs british ale
    yeast. I ha...

    The OG was 1.031 and the FG 1.010. The primary was a 6gallon food grade bucket with airlock and
    the secondary was a 5 gallon glass carboy. I kept it in a dark room that stays around 69
    degrees. It did...

    I brewed an IPA on 10/31 with 7oz of hops in the 70minute boil and used another oz for dry
    hopping when I racked into secondary on 11/7. When I tasted it before bottling it seemed great.
