    There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing that CO2 coming out of the blow off on a new batch or seeing a bottle carbonate!

    This becomes an addiction...especially once you are turning out world class beer for under

    I've used plenty of bottles that initially had mold in them. Don't be lazy. Just soak them in a
    strong Oxiclean solution for a day or 2 and then hit each one with a bottle brush, rinse and
    dry and san...

    Not too many hops you think?Not too much hops but I agree, it's too many bittering hops. You
    only need maybe 2 ounces between 60 and 45 min and then all the rest of the hops in the last 15
    minutes, wh...

    Sounds awesome! One of my personal favorite recipes is a Red IPA I came up with. It uses about
    30% Munich malt. 60% 2-row, Carared and Crystal 90. Citra and Amarillo finishing hops and dry
    hop. Awesom...

    Personally I like a big full tasting Oktoberfest. I haven't made one yet but I do a Vienna
    lager that is 95% vienna malt and 5% carapils for more body. It's awesome! Don't be afraid to
    use only Munich...

  • Posted in thread: How much do you brew yearly? on 07-16-2014 at 06:56 PM
    roughly 132 gallons/year. Just realized that's over 1,300 12-oz bottles. Wow. Where does it all

  • Posted in thread: Irrational Fear of Crystal Malt on 07-16-2014 at 06:51 PM
    I use crystal in 90% of my beers........Same here. Most of my 5.5 gallon batches have at least
    8oz of Crystal 60.

    I'm not much of a citra fan so I'm probably not the one to give much advice about it, except to
    say that citra is best in small doses for the most part because of the intense tropical flavor
    it impart...

  • Posted in thread: Does anyone use Citra as bittering hop? on 06-25-2014 at 08:31 PM
    It's a waste to use it for bittering since it's primarily a flavor/aroma hop. I use Magnum or
    Super Galena for bittering and then Citra in the last 15 minutes, hop stand and dry hop on my
    IPAs, APAs.

    To me the ultimate in grapefruit flavor for hops is Amarillo hops. Cascade is citrusy as well
    and in combination with Chinook it will be very nice but for a grapefruit bomb definitely need
    Amarillo ho...
