Posted in thread: Hercules Double IPA from Great Divide on 11-23-2013 at 06:45 PM
Hercules double IPA is a gem, great big full bodied and well rounded IPA. Woody, malty, sweet,
hop bomb of a beer. Seriously hercules status.With that said, I always get chunks in the bottle
as some h...

For anyone who was interested, after lots of tasting and ageing I believe the problem is

low temperatures ...

Troll?! Seriously? Some people think I'm a troll because I don't brew the exact way that
JPamler says to do in "How to Brew"? I'm going off my gut/ science not tradition. Do you even

Posted in thread: 200 Gallons of home brew on 11-15-2013 at 08:21 AM
I could easily hit 600 gallons a year if I tried, it's not that hard to hit those numbers. My

brew beer onc...

I didn't boil. I drained from mash tun into my fermenter. This is an unusual practice I
understand but the mash should've pasteurized the wort. I know DMS can be an issue with low
boils/no boils, can ...

I know a lot of brewers use the yeast cake from the bottom of a fermenter for the next
batch.Lately though, I have been using a different technique and I was wondering if anyone has
experience with it...
