    i agree with the gypsum additions. i found that as soon as i brought my sulfates up it helped
    make the bitterness crisper. i always had issues with what i felt was a muddled hop profile.

    I was just listening to the NHC keynote speech that Vinnie gave this year, it was mostly a
    history of his brewing, but he mentioned something I hadn't heard before... that at Russian

    Overall, it's a good beer, but a work in progress. It weighs in at 6.1% ABV but is only in the

    Sorachi Ace might play nicely with Belgian yeast. Maybe look into some clone recipes for
    Stone's Cali-Belgique IPA. That might be a good place to start.cali-belgique is just stone IPA

    base malt with rye malt, but I was also thinking of replacing the chocolate malt I generally
    use with ch...

    I think you need a little more chocolate malt (I wouldn't use any more roasted barley or black
    patent) and you also need some crystal malt in there for some complexity and to balance out the
    roast. I ...
