Posted in thread: Another try at a Dogfish Head 120 style beer on 04-14-2014 at 09:02 AM
I bottled the beer. Gravity was down to 1.004 so that would put ABV ~18%. I ended up filling my
6 liter Tap-A-Draft bottle and another 4 12-oz bottles with clear beer. I probably had about 24
oz of tr...

ja09 - I cultured mine from a can of Heady. From my experience I can let it go over 70* after a
2-3 weeks and not get Belgian esters so I don't think Conan will create Belgian esters after

I have a feeling some people are working with much weaker strains of Conan than I am. Mine were
actually finishing too dry (~90% attenuation), so I didn't use sugar at all on my last clone
and it fini...

Added final dry hop:1/2 oz Simcoe3/8 oz Citra1/4 oz each Centennial and CTZ1/8 oz each El
Dorado, Galaxy, and ApolloI think the Conan yeast is no longer active, so I will let the
temperature go up to ...
Posted in thread: 1 gallon IPA experiment - dry hopping whole leaf vs pellets on 04-06-2014 at 07:47 PM
It's been over a year since this thread has been active and I've done A LOT more with dry
hopping since then. For one, I tested and reviewed 30 different dry hops ( but I'm going to
come back to the ...

3 oz was better than 1.5 oz, can't say if it was necessarily twice as good, but it seems the
more hops used for dry hopping the better. For the Heady Topper clone people are using 5.5 oz
for the first...

From my experience the Belgian notes that Conan yeast can produce above 70* are intrinsic to
the yeast and the yeast will not produce more or less Belgian esters based on the fermentation

Added first dry hop:1 oz Simcoe1/2 oz each Centennial, Citra, El Dorado, Galaxy, and CTZ1/4 oz

One last thing, some people who are more experienced with partial mashes suggest using DME to
avoid caramelization, and based on their advice I used DME for the few PMs I did, however I
used LME for e...

This will help you calculate how much extract to use to hit 1.080-1.100 OG: will help you
figure out how much hops to use(although doubling the hops from a DIPA you like is a good
method as well): ...
