Thanks for the tips. I don't have the equipment to cold crash but with the weather at this

I made an extract batch of Northern Brewer black IPA last week. OG was 1.072. I have not
transferred to a secondary for quite some time, however I have not dry hopped in the primary
yet. The recipe in...

I am going to jump in on this as I was about to post a similar question anyway. I will be
making NB Black IPA this weekend and have been debating in my head whether or not to use a

I bottled yesterday. From time I turned on the pot with the proming sugar water on the stove

Revvy - I have read your sticky and I do use the method of attaching the wand direct to the

Yeah when I sanitize I use the Vinator so that part doesn't take me very long. I know the
bottles are clean so I think I will skip the additional bottling day rinsing and go right to

To begin with here, I am embarrassed to say how long my bottling day takes. I do think I have
