  • Posted in thread: Forgot my 30 minute hop additions on 07-03-2015 at 10:40 PM
    I wouldn't sweat it, use the hops in something else. Dry hopping would be my normal action, but
    I'd let a RIS ride as is.

    Not sure about CA, but the only caps that I've seen outside of the brew shops are attached to

  • Posted in thread: German Chocolate Stout? on 07-03-2015 at 10:35 PM
    Most likely the yeast package said to use it within 4 months of its manufacturing date, not
    your bottling date. Once the yeast have done their noble duty and fermented your beer, you can
    keep the bott...

  • Posted in thread: Is my beer going to be ruined? on 07-03-2015 at 10:34 PM
    Hard telling. Know that sounds like a cop-out, but there are tons of variables. Odds are you'll
    be fine, if it was caught quickly, sounds like the yeast took hold and did their thing, I

  • Posted in thread: Do we have to filter beer before kegging? on 07-01-2015 at 05:06 PM
    As others have said, it's not required, temperature is your biggest friend in clearing. I
    filter, but it's a matter of preference (and a lack of room to effectively cold-crash before
    transfer). If my ...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for Recipe Tips - Apple Blonde Stout on 07-01-2015 at 04:53 PM
    Just a thought, but could you make the base beer and cider, ferment separately, then blend at
    packaging? Thought being that you could then alter the ratio to taste. Cider isn't my forte,
    I'm sure that...

    Keep in mind that bitterness (AA's) is quite different than flavor and aroma.if I drop a bunch
    of hops in at 5 minutes left to boil, they will contribute a little bitterness and a lot of
    flavor and ar...

  • Posted in thread: Plate Chiller and Warm Tap Water on 06-14-2015 at 07:18 PM
    I'd see what your temp is for the water into your plate chiller, may need to slow the flow to
    let the ice bath cool your water down. Slowing the flow of wort should help as well, my final
    pass is supe...

    What Doug said- I rarely try to scramble on brew-day, just let things ride and record what
    happened. Never had anything undrinkable, and finally hitting my stride with my new rig (after
    a few trying m...
