    It doesn't take a man to like these mugs. I'm in.

    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
    - and the...

    I used 4 oz of corn sugar (dextrose) and it turned out perfectly carbonated. That's pretty much
    my standard bottling amount unless I am doing something unusual.

    It'll be fine! Don't worry, have a homebrew! :D

    I checked back over my notes to see what I got on my 2 times making this beer. My OG was lower
    than your OG (1.070) and my FG was lower than your FG on both beers (roughly 1.004). I suspect
    you may ha...

    In my experience it is never a mistake to use a blow off tube but defaulting to an airlock can
    be a big messy mistake! Unless it is a mead, lager or I use my larger fermenter with plenty of
    head space...

    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
    outstanding all on its own. Better yet, make a 10 gallon batch and blend some and split some. I
    think that's ...

  • Posted in thread: Allagash Curieux Clone on 03-27-2014 at 10:02 AM
    Even though I split the last batch I made, I still used the same 3 oz of Hungarian oak cubes
    and bourbon in half the batch. I was afraid I would get a lot less oak character if I only used
    half the am...
