    Ok, so we cracked the first bottle today. All I can say is WOW. Not super chocolaty, but with a
    nice roasty and creamy taste. Actually, the best I can describe it is to say it tastes like a
    good piece...

    Well, we just bottled it last night. It spent 3 months in the secondary bulk-aging. The only
    thing I can say is WOW! If you don't remember, I accidentally put 8 oz by weight instead of
    volume. Well, w...

    Roasted Barley - bad idea. Does not play well with high hop levels. I'd drop it and back off on
    the Chocolate.Thanks for the quick reply!So if I drop the roasted barley, and bring back the
    chocolate t...

    I've been wanting to try building up a dark IPA recipe. And I don't mean dark as in a regular
    IPA that's just darker. I want to notice the roasted and caramel flavors under the aggressive
    hop profile....

    Well, we're still going to let it age quite a while before we really have at it, but we did try
    one last week. It's getting quite drinkable. The blueberry flavor has mellowed quite well. The
    only comp...

    Alright. So I brewed this a few weeks ago. I realized shortly after we added it to the primary
    fermenter that I screwed up. Instead of adding 8 oz (1 cup) of chocolate, I added 8 oz (1 / 2
    lbs, or abo...

    I've ordered 3 barrels through (it's cheap), and I've gotta say, I'm never going to use chips
    again. It's so easy to use a barrel, and the result is astounding. I just racked 2.5 gallons of
    double I...

    Well, we just racked off of the blueberries tonight (it only spent 1 week on the berries). We
    racked a double IPA tonight, so we decided to try the blueberry ale. And it seemed ready to
    come off the b...

  • Posted in thread: Racking off of fruit on 07-20-2010 at 05:58 PM
    I personally use a muslin bag to hold the fruit during fermentation (cherries on the last fruit
    brew, blueberries on the next). Then, I simply slide the racking cane next to the fruit. I had
    little to...

    Guess it depends on the Blueberries.Betty, My Blueberry Blonde, has ~4 lbs of berries in it and
    only hints at berry flavor.But I did get them in the off-season so the ones now might be more
    potent.Oh ...
