Glad I sparked some interest. I never would have thought of it either. I think it's a cool
idea. I wonder what hops are best for it. Would 2 oz of Cascade be better suited to FWH that,
say, an ounce o...

So, a guy I work with is in a brewing competition where the guidelines vary each one - odd
ingredients, odd gravities, etc. His newest challenge is to make an IPA with no hops added
above 200 degrees....

Is it wrong to just say I like my stuff best?By that, I mean drinking most commercial beer

Awesome. Thanks for the responses. I have to admit I'm still a bit fuzzy on the math,at least

if anyone had ever made date beer?I love dates, and wonder what sort of flavor they would
impart. I assume...

the freezer, the fridge will stay around 48 or 49. I have done that for nearly a dozen lagers
and an alt...
Posted in thread: Cascade vs. Columbus for dry hopping on 08-22-2013 at 11:43 PM
I've been trying to pin down the flavor in an IPA I made last year. I thought it was Citra,
bought a bunch, brewed...nope. I also had used Columbus and Cascade at the end, and dry hop. I
