Bought a house in the Soddy area in December after living 7 years on the outskirts of
Gainesville, GA. I have been a home brewer for 8 years now and am working on getting things
worked out to start br...

Just a followup on this conversation. My Citra IPA was the best ever! Very citrusy and not
spicy. I still can't say what the secret is, but I did water additions and the only hops were
Magnum for bitt...

I haven't posted here in awhile. I did a Simcoe Pale Ale and it is much, much better. While not
the citrus I am looking for I taste the Simcoe and not just spicy hops, it is way more complex

In my experience it is never a mistake to use a blow off tube but defaulting to an airlock can

I left mine on wood/bourbon a month in secondary - but that was with the medium toast Hungarian
oak/Beam. The second go around had a combination of Medium American oak and Hungarian Heavy
toast. You m...

Ahha! Yes, I probably would cut down on the oak if you aren't blending. The base Tripel is
