If you want to stick with that much chocolate then that is up to you and that is why it's
homebrewing! What is your projected FG? In the low 20's is usually good for barrel aged beers
as the booze and...
Posted in thread: Fermentation still going after 10 day dry hop - do I bottle anyway? on 07-17-2015 at 09:45 PM
Generally if the yeast is within it's allotted attenuation range then it's probably done
fermenting so a target FG isn't always the best measure unless you have used a yeast a lot and
know how it beha...

Placing with an IPA in a comp with that many entries would be quite difficult. IPA is one of
the most common categories and I would imagine that there were at least a couple hundred in

Yeah I agree with you on the barrel stuff. I wasn't implying that I go from sour to clean beer
in barrels (that is a really bad idea for the reasons you mentioned), just that I use only

them out. For...

What is your mash temp going to be? Have you used wlp002 before in this high gravity of a beer.
I would be doubtful that it will make it to that high of an attenuation but I haven't made a

Do you normally taste your starters? If so do they usually taste sour?Sour isn't a good sign
and I wouldn't potentially infect 15gal of wort with that one. IMHO just go to the store and
get a few pack...
