    I know the general rule of thumb is, "if you can taste it, list it" when filling out entry
    forms.Is this true for abv? I have a 12.5% abv Imperial Rye Smoked Porter aged in a rye barrel.
    For a beer th...

  • Posted in thread: Fruit or Brett first in secondary? on 02-12-2015 at 11:43 PM
    I brewed a saison with WLP 565 and after 4-5 weeks it is down from 1.065 to 1.008. My plan was
    to add both Brett C and about 7 pounds of frozen peaches to secondary.My question is when to
    add them? Sh...

    Anyone ever use Honey Malt in this recipe? I like the idea of honey flavor coming through more
    and this seems to be the ticket. I will be brewing this in the next couple of weeks (once I get
    my fermen...

    I would really appreciate any input on the recipe below whether you have had this beer or not.
    I am going for the beer in the description linked, not necessarily a clone, but a big, earthy
    porter, in ...

    Piched a 24h starter of yeastgeek YG001 into a pale ale, and I'm 7 days into the ferment.
    Something is very wrong. I'm starting to get what I can only think is Brett funk. I have never
    used Brett in m...

  • Posted in thread: When is it time to transfer my flanders red to barrel? on 04-24-2013 at 12:04 AM
    I need an update. I have a 5.5 gallon barrel I aged a beer in for two months after it had been
    emptied by the distillery and I was thinking of adding an FR to it. So, original poster, what
    did you do?...

    Not sure about the whole "smaller barrel=less time" thing after aging two beers in 5 gallon
    Journeyman Silver Cross barrels. I went 8 weeks. I tasted every week for the first few weeks,
    then decided t...

    Kegged on April 2 and primed with corn sugar. I tried it today and I really like these hops.
    I'd say the description was pretty close. Smells great and tastes great. Not as fruity as say
    Citra, though...

    Thanks for asking!Finishing primary fermentation now. Did the same grist and two separate
    boils. All Citra in one and EXP 5256 in the other. I have made the Citra many times with this
    grist. The EXP 5...
