  • Posted in thread: Question on Hop Tea Techniques? on 10-23-2012 at 09:47 PM
    I'm planning to try the hop tea method myself. Going to use a french press, which I figure
    would be perfect for this method. My question; would it be possible to use the priming sugar
    water to make th...

    Without looking at it with you or having a diagram it's pretty hard to make meaningful
    suggestions. If I understand what you're saying; you want to activate the control box with a
    switch (leaving it p...

  • Posted in thread: spring water for brewing on 10-15-2012 at 06:12 PM

  • Posted in thread: Simple IPA suggestions with Columbus, Cascade and Centennial on 10-10-2012 at 10:37 PM
    I'm sure it's been mentioned somewhere before but you can refer to for a
    description and suggestion where to use which hops. Columbus is definitely a good bitter hop
    (super alpha).

    I have family in LA so I know what you're talking about. If I remember, it's a dirty metalic
    taste. Here in Bend I have a lot of chlorine in the water. You can boil off the chlorine but
    for LA water, ...

    Sounds great. I just brewed a super hoppy batch myself with 10oz total hops - you beat me by 1
    oz. I was affraid of off flavors (grassy, etc.) but it really has a great taste and aroma to
    it. Really h...
