My first which is one week into bottle conditioning. MO and Galaxy. Like pineapple mango juice
and just enough malt from the MO. This may be my new grain of choice for ipa's.That sounds

Posted in thread: What does "clean" mean when referring to yeast? on 12-15-2014 at 04:44 PM
I hear it a lot with US-05 and WLP001. Does this mean that the yeast won't add to the end

Posted in thread: Keg to bottle – flip top vs. regular capped bottle on 12-08-2014 at 05:46 PM

Posted in thread: Will cold crashing pull/settle dry hop? on 11-18-2014 at 03:19 PM

Posted in thread: Will cold crashing pull/settle dry hop? on 11-18-2014 at 02:18 PM
Many beers I make call for dry hopping for ~7 days. In my experience, I still have a

If you're just using the SS braid and nothing else, the grain could be crushing the braid. A
