    Just finished installing the propane gas manifold on my Blichmann Top Tier, and I have a
    question for you guys regarding the positioning of the gas supply line for the second tier.

  • Posted in thread: Roasted Barley - how much is too much in an Imperial Stout? on 11-25-2010 at 01:32 PM
    It's a tried and true recipe so I would go with it without any tweaks. The Special B will
    provide a nice sweet dark-fruit flavor to balance the roast, and in my opinion Imperial Stouts
    should be MEAN....

  • Posted in thread: Repitching record? on 10-03-2010 at 02:20 AM
    That's pretty impressive...I would hazard a guess that after that many repitches, you would
    have noticed that the yeast is at least somewhat different than the original strain, especially
    in terms of ...

    I'd be interested in a way to preserve hop flavor, which I believe is unrelated to oxidation.
    Anyone that has grabbed a year old bottle of any DIPA knows exactly what I'm talking about;
