I've done an IPA with citra, mosaic, and centennial that I enjoyed. I also split a batch of

do a hoppy w...

I just got back from Mexico a week ago and was an hour and a half north of Cancun on a tiny
island. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. A cafe/ice cream shop had a
cooler that had a ...

Posted in thread: Bottle dregs question on 10-27-2015 at 03:56 PM
I have a gallon test sour going and a few months ago pitched some Jolly Pumpkin La Roja dregs
into secondary. I was drinking a JP Weizen Bam the other night and decided to add those dregs

Posted in thread: Kölsch- lager before or after bottling? on 10-08-2015 at 08:37 PM
First I agree with Grannyknot's method. 58 for 2-3 weeks, 1 week room temp, then the whole
