    So I've made the leap to all-grain, with about 5 batches under my belt, counting the one
    currently in the fermenter. I'm using Beersmith, but I'm realizing it needs some tweaking to
    match my particula...

    When you need a blowoff tube . . . for your starter! It's on its second stepup for an IPA, and
    I think it wants to eat the kitchen. :eek:

    Dropped it on the floor and got distracted by something else right afterward. Came back to the
    kitchen, and promptly stepped on it. Thankfully, with shoes on.1201.

    When you clean up after bottling an IPA, empty the hop sock into the garbage disposal, turn it
    on, and keep cleaning up. Then notice 2 minutes later that the hops have somehow migrated
    through the dis...

    Racked to secondary and dryhopped today. Yes, we have no bananas. :D We'll see how a Chinook
    IPA turns out; very bitter and piney right now, but it's room temperature and flat, so that
    will change som...

    Thanks for the help! Well the yeast certainly didn't need the help; it went bonkers for about 2
    days. First time I've had krausen through 4 feet of blowoff tube into the mason jar. :drunk:As
    has been ...

    So I just brewed an IPA last night, which turned out just north of 1.070 OG with 5.5 gallons
    into primary. Unfortunately, when I went to pitch the yeast (Wyeast 1056), I realized that I
    had missed the...

    Well, that one's a keeper. Slightly over 2 weeks in the bottle, and I broke down and tried two.
    Definitely on the sweeter side, not sure if that's from the bourbon or the hopping error. Can't
    really t...

    Sounds like a plan. If it clones me, I can get more work done. Grocery bill might be an issue,
