    Ok, I'm been dying to try the Nelson Sauvin hops, and while I'm just using extract, I want to
    use them as first wort, and then again in the secondary. The place I now buy from said to use
    an American ...

    Libertyville is fine by me. I go to Perfect Brewing to get my supplies.

    I'm in Lake Villa, and looking to learn, drink, ask, and drink. Any clubs up North?

    I've not added vanilla bean into the boil before, only post fermentation... Figured someone

    the new brewery who is making this recipe, made a paste with ancho chilis and cinnamon, but I'm
    sure added nutmeg and other spices. From what I've read, people often make a paste using spices
    and some...

    they're using cocao nibs (for a week in the secondary I believe), and vanilla beans..Any idea
    what I woul...

    Hefe turned out so good I forgot to snap the picture till I was half way through the first
    beer! I also manned up and brewed an IPA, actually my own recipe. I'm getting a bubble per
    second right now...

    Thats what I did too. I took the recipe for the Blood Orange Hefe, and substituted Mineolas.
    Couldn't find the blood oranges, and I like Mineolas, so I figured, why not?Mine too started
    fermenting wit...

    It's a tangent, but to clarify: For most beers you want to avoid the yeast/sediment at the
    bottom of the bottle. The main exception is for German hefeweizens, for which including the
    yeast is actually...

    Unlikely that there is a significant difference between the two, but there may have been a few
    confounding factors. Was the carbonation level the same? Presumably not. During the first
    couple weeks, b...
