    I've zested grapefruit w/ just a quick wash for my grapefruit IPA with no problems on at least
    6 batches...and I've used raspberries, jalapenos and peaches w/o boiling on at least 13 batches
    and haven...

    What happens when you turn off the gas, vent your keg and then pour? What temperature is your
    beer at and at what PSI and duration did you carb?

    Thanks guys. I just bottled this weekend and the hops dropped right down. This is gonna be my
    cleanest dry hopped beer yet! One strange thing happen though. My second gravity reading (at
    room temp) wa...

    It sounds like a sticky fermentation. I always, even with lagers, raise my temp up after
    primary is showing signs of stopping. It helps clean up some esters and helps push those last
    gravity points ou...

    It could be an equipment calibration issue. Say your thermometer was off 6 F then you would
    actually be mashing at 158 F which could explain the high FG. Or your hydrometer could be off,
    does it taste...

    Did you pitch a big healthy yeast starter? If yes you may have transferred to secondary too
    soon. I've had success with lager simply letting it sit in the primary for 2 months, tasted
    exactly like the...

    So I brewed an Oktoberfest using Wyeast 2112 California Lager, was expecting a F.G. of about
    1.012, but ended up with a F.G of 1.023. The first batch was fermented at 58 degrees F. I
    decided to do a s...

    So, I new to skipping the secondary and I'm getting ready to dry hop a brew. I plan on dry
    hopping for five days with pellets and then I'm gonna cold crash. This will also be the firt
    beer I cold cras...

  • Posted in thread: Grapefruit IPA Recipee opinion on 11-25-2015 at 08:53 PM
    Your FG seems a bit high...I would recommend drying it out a bit more as to not have the
    maltiness round out and mute the drier, more tart aspects of the grapefruit profile you are
    going for. I'd say ...
