    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...

    Hale's Ales in Ballard. Try a Red Menace or Mongoose.

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

    So if I wash and reuse a yeast cake, how many times can I use it before my beer comes crawling
    out of the carboy?

    Hmm . . . interesting info. Didn't realize the 10 minutes would make such an effect on the
    IBUs. I'll have to learn to do the math on that, though hopefully not under a time crunch! :) I
    was trying to...

    So I started brewing the aforementioned extract kit, and goofed. It included an ounce of
    Goldings and an ounce of Chinook. Chinook is supposed to go in for 60 minutes, then half the
    Goldings for 15 mi...

  • Posted in thread: Stupid kegging question on 10-31-2011 at 05:40 AM
    Well, I figured I have a shot at getting up to the store tomorrow or Tuesday, so I figured I'd
    just bite the bullet on a CO2 setup then. I went ahead and racked to the keg and simply closed
    it up. I f...
