    g-r,I hope your brew went well today. I found a recipe for 1909 oat malt stout that includes
    linseed (surprised me anyway) that includes the tip that it's flaxseed. And my doctor tells me
    to consume m...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary. I just don't get it on 06-02-2013 at 11:01 AM
    I only use a secondary fermenter when "dropping" a pilsner a day after pitching to move the
    beer off the trub or if I am using the yeast cake in the primary for a bigger beer. Like this

  • Posted in thread: What to do with warrior? on 04-18-2013 at 08:42 PM
    Warrior is a good hop for anywhere in a brew for ales. Great for bittering with its high alpha
    acids. Magic Hat here in VT used 100% Warriors in their HIPA before the hop shortage made them
    switch to ...

  • Posted in thread: Cask Question - Will beer be okay? on 04-18-2013 at 08:32 PM
    I haven't kept a brew in a cask for more than two weeks but I can't imagine there would be an
    issue with a 6.2% brown ale. Over there that would be considered a strong ale.I got my pin from
    NB last ye...

    I wonder if the onion garlic vs tangerine is a function of whole hops or pellet hops?I used
    only whole Summits again this year in an IPA as FWH and late additions starting with 15 minutes
    and again go...

    Yes, late hopping is not a feature of the dry Irish stout we all know well. But a little
    variation is a good thing. Last year I used a little crystal malt in my Irish stout and I think
    I fixed my wate...

    Maybe it's just some of us like onions? I sense more tangerine than onions in my summit forward
    brews. And I agree it's a more mellow flavor than some of the more aggresive hops like
    centennial or chi...

  • Posted in thread: critique needed...simple english mild on 01-24-2012 at 05:04 PM
    I tend to hop my milds by equally dividing hops into 60 and 30 minute boiling additions, aiming
    for total ibus of 15-22. My most recent batch was based on an American mild and used 0.16 oz
    whole Zeus ...
