Not enough hops imo, but its still a decent amount for kettle additions. Also 3 boil additions
are a waste, I have been converted to the big hop stand. Less muddled much more intense flavor

Heating water for 10 gallon IPA batch right now. Targeting around 60 OG, 6.5% abv. I'm doing
kind of a cleanup batch on hops. Here's what I have, I'm not really feeling it,1 oz Warrior

for a double red, for color, would you recommend chocolate malt, black malt, or midnight wheat?

There doesn't seem to be a category for an American Double Red Ale in BJCP 2015. Lots of
commercial examples. The closest is Red IPA, but it suggest max OG of 1.070 and max ABV of 7.5.

I'd worry more about what they're feeding you. I didn't mind sipping SOL on the beach. Only
tourists drink Corona.
Posted in thread: Highly attenuating wort mash schedule on 02-25-2016 at 04:04 AM
I often step mash at 63C/72C (145F/162F) varying the time at 63C depending on how fermentable I
want the wort to be. 20mins at 63C gives (for me) a similar final gravity to a single temp mash
at 67C (...

I generally don't get the greatest attenuation, right around what the yeast manufacturer says

It did drop to 1.018 - 74% attenuation that's pretty good. I hear ya - I usually don't look at
my beer for a month, just trying to turn this one around. First time with 1098 for me; I've
used S-04 tho...
Posted in thread: Split batch - 1098 low attenuation on 01-30-2016 at 03:44 PM
I brewed 10 gallons, split into two fermenters. Pitched 1098 into one, 1056 into the other.
Both were with 1.8L starters. The 1056 starter was done fermenting when I pitched, the 1098
still had some k...
