  • Posted in thread: "Prime Dose" for undercarbed tripel? on 09-16-2014 at 09:17 PM
    Hello! I undercarbonated my tripel to about 2.5 volumes based on what the calculator I used
    told me was appropriate. It has about the same carbonation as a slightly spritzy IPA. Has
    anyone used Prime ...

    No worries.I tasted some at bottling-time and it was pretty dry; drier than I'd like, but not
    excessively so. I'll try to give a follow-up when I pop a bottle open.I put 5 gallons in the
    fermenter and...

    Ah, makes more sense. That's what happens when I post after a long day of judging -- my reading
    comprehension goes straight out the window!

    I just bottled a batch of pear cider brewed with this on 9/7. I pitched it dry and I got about
    75% apparent attenuation (1.046 to 1.011) from it.Wow! Bottled after only 6 days? Did you half

    I just pitched a pack of this into a perry yesterday. Seems to be fermenting, but like you, I
    couldn't find any info on it, so I decided to give it a go. Last year I did a cider with
    Mangrove Jack's c...

    Just bottled this today. Overestimated my efficiency and only ended up at OG 1.033, but FG was
    1.008, giving me a 3.3% ABV beauty! Hydro sample tasted great.

    I just kegged my version of this with Mangrove Jack's M44 US West Coast, and the hydro sample
    tasted great! Attenuated a little too far, down to 1.010 and 5.5% ABV, but I'm really looking
    forward to f...

    I've brewed this a couple times now, including just yesterday. Recently I've been judging
    smoked beers in a couple different competitions and now have the bug to brew a classic
    rauchbier. Does anyone ...
