  • Posted in thread: Why do newbies always use so much crystal malt? on 12-11-2015 at 12:28 AM
    Looking back at my recipes... I normally am somewhere in the 2.5-10% range with the higher
    being less common. ~5% is the most common. I usually mash lower when I get to higher
    percentages too.

    I like crystal malts in a lot of recipes (though almost never in a saison or IPA), but they can
    be overdone really easily. In my early days I made a barleywine that I had an 80/15/5 split of
    2 row/var...

  • Posted in thread: Can't get bubbles out of beer line on 12-03-2015 at 06:26 PM
    The friction would cause tiny bubbles to form, even when pulling... but they can be small
    enough that they are not evident right away. Over time the combine to form a bigger bubble that
    you see. One t...

    I've had some issues with the CO2 separating out of solution in the line at 40-42 degrees
    before in my kegerator. Lowering that temperature to 34-36 keeps things pretty happy in my
    setup. I have a dua...

  • Posted in thread: Aging in Kegs - Is it sealed well? on 11-30-2015 at 11:53 PM
    I've done some brett beers in the past where I transferred the 'finished' beer to a corny,
    pitched the brett in the keg, and put some CO2 on it to seal the lid. I built a spunding valve
    that will rele...

    Glad you popped up with this. Funkwerks' Tropic King made its way into my fridge the other day.
    You should definitely track it down. Great hop flavor, great yeast character, and if I'm being
    honest, I...

    So THAT'S where all the Amarillo went!No kidding :(I see DFH is still up the their marketing
    gimmicks... targeting people that solely equate IBUs to hoppiness.

    Never tried it... I'd guess there would be some fusel alcohols produced, but with this yeast's
    love of temp it might not be so bad. On small beers, I'll start it at 75-80 (depending on OG),
    ramp up to...

  • Posted in thread: 2015 US Hops crop on 11-20-2015 at 09:23 PM
    Drought, heat, fires, and demand basically. Amarillo is seemingly THE hop right now, so it will
    be very hard to get. You can find some leaf now, but I wouldn't count on that lasting. Biggest
    surprise ...

  • Posted in thread: 2015 US Hops crop on 11-20-2015 at 08:32 PM
    Yeah it seems like Amarillo is going to be tough to get this year. I know many places are not
    even getting any pellets. I haven't heard the same on Simcoe yet, but it wouldn't shock me if
    it is the sa...
