    Don't take Conan above 70* if the gravity is over 1.015...unless you are looking for Belgian
    characteristics. I would also advise staying under 70* for at least 4 days when bottle
    conditioning.

    Omega should be fine. Pitch at .43 (that's actually pretty low as .75 is standard) and raise by
    1 degree per day once fermentation starts. Once you hit 66* your beer should actually be
    finished at 1.0...

    Maybe try the same technique, but start at 63*.

    I don't get Belgian esters unless I go above 70*. How are you measuring temperature and how
    tight is your temperature control?

    I had some of the most recent iteration that I had bottled before adding the 2nd dry hop.
    Tasted very thin, definitely no where near as good as the first beer in this thread where I hit
    that 0.44 pitc...

  • Posted in thread: Review of 30 dry hops on 05-02-2016 at 08:23 PM
    Haven't tried any new hops in quite a while as I have a couple of pounds of hops that didn't
    make the cut and I will probably never use. At this point I've come down to about 9 hops that I
    like to use...

    Gravity was down to 1.020 two days after adding 11.5g of US-05 so I added the first dry hop:1
    oz Simcoe, 1 oz CTZ, 1/2 oz Belma, 1/2 oz Centennial, 1/2 oz Citra, 1/2 oz El Dorado, 1/2
    Apollo, 1/2 oz S...

    That's why you should buy the ingredients yourself instead of using a kit (with the exception
    of Farmhouse's kit since it is theveganbrewer's recipe on page 1) if you want to clone this
    beer. As long ...

    You can add Conan for bottle conditioning, just don't let it go above 70* for the first 4-7
    days. I've successfully bottle conditioned with Conan in as little as 4 days, but it can take 3
    weeks. IMO i...

    Gravity is only down to 1.025. Going to add a pack or two of US-05. I really think I pitched
    around 0.3 on this rather than 0.44. The previous beer I did turned out great.
