There is a pretty low threshold for tasting phenolics from chloramines. It may be fine, or it
could taste like band-aids. Next time just add a 1/4 tab of k-meta per 5g batch and you will be
good to go...

Since there will be lower dryhop effect at low temps, I'd wait until it's warmed up. However,
if I were worried about hop resins binding to yeast and reducing the dryhop effect, I'd just
add more hops...

You typically won't get as much flavor and aroma when dryhopping at lower temperatures. It's

kegging. I w...

Looks good, very similar to my APA. The simcoe is a great addition when you can get it. I dry
hop 2 oz on 5 gallons for 7 days. Usually half centennial, half cascade or Amarillo.

Think of Munich as a substitute of the base grain and not a substitute for Crystal malts. For a
recipe that represents an average Amber, I would keep the pound of Munich but wouldn't go above
15% on C...

There is an on off switch on the back of the lid. It's connected by the same wiring harness
