  • I love porters, pale ales, and IPAs. Not a big fan of lagers. My favorite brew is Anchor Porter (so far). My favorite pale ale is Yazoo. Favorite IPA: Dogfish Head 90 minute.

    the main thing I'm worried about is that I ruined a 5 gallons+6.5 gallons of ale. A porter and
    an APA. I just tasted the porter, it's only been in the bottle a week, but it tastes like soap

    I used the 5.4 pH balancer in my last two brews. I didn't read the label clearly and used WAY
    more than I was supposed to. I think my beer is probably ruined, but I don't want to dump it
    until I have ...

    I had a question about dry hopping. I have a basic APA 5 gallon batch, with approx 32-34 IBUs .
    About how much and how long to dry hop for an extra kick of aroma? I don't want it to be

    What if I were to dry hop? Would that change my boiling/hop schedule?

    I'm using a rectangle igloo cooler for lautering, a standard kettle (7 gal) for the mash. I was

    pils malt ...

    I'm gearing up to do my first all grain brew. I'm researching recipes to find a suitable first
    all grain attempt. Any suggestions would be great, especially for a pale ale or IPA. I'm trying
    to get 5-...

    I just read in another thread to not worry about fermentation delays, and to wait 24-72 hours
    for activity to begin... I thought that I had somehow killed my yeast. About 36 hours had
    passed with zero...

    So... about the waiting 24-72 hours for signs of fermentation to begin. I thought that I had
    somehow killed my yeast. I added about 1 1/2 cups of wort to a sterile mason jar and added my
    room temp liq...
