    Ok, what do you guys think of this:

    I see you are in IA. I am in VA and I must say, one of the best Reds I have ever tasted was
    from BJ's Brewery. If you have anyway of getting the recipe, I would shoot for that. Very very
    good.this is ...

    Please take this with a grain of salt (or grain?) because I am fairly new to this hobby, but I
    believe I have been looking for something similar to what you have requested. After reading a
    few dozen r...

    Go with a 60 shilling scottish and change the yeast to what you like, S-05? :)Could be a
    jumping off point if I keep any smoke/roast to a minimum and finish it clean with a 1056 or
    yeah S-05 or simila...

    How about the American amber every one knows (and tends to like)? A Fat Tire clone would be a
    classic choice.Not sure what it is about Fat Tire but I've never been a fan. Do agree it may be
    a good cho...

    I thought it would be super easy to find a real easy drinking session American amber/red but
    I'm kinda struggling. :drunk:What I'm wanting is a low IBU session type red (say 4.0 - 5.5 %
    range) that yo...

    Depending on yeast, that temp could cause a citrusy taste. I just finished a keg of CB that had
    the peachy flavor (US05) which was fermented in the upper 60's and that was the vessel temp. I
    used to f...

  • Posted in thread: Do you dry hop in the primary or the secondary? on 09-09-2013 at 09:41 PM
    I've dry hopped toward the end of primary and directly in the keg. Can't say I've noticed much
    difference either way and since the latter is easier/safer IMO, I go that route exclusively
    now. Especial...

  • Posted in thread: Summer Pale Ale on 09-03-2013 at 04:37 PM
    Really wanting to brew this but the HBS was out of Amarillo. What's your thought on going all
    in with Falconer's instead for the 15 & 1 additions? Or Falconer's for the 15 and 1 and then
    also add citr...

    I have brewed this several times now using a Fullers strain with great results. I ferment at
    62F for a nice clean finish or a couple of degrees more if I want to mix it up a bit.Brandon+1
