    Why not try a session ipa 5%ish C40, a little carapils, the rest 2-row or MO. OG of 1.045ish
    and around 45IBU. I've had good luck with similar recipe but instead of C40 I use C10 and sub
    carapils with...

    I usually soak the zest in vodka if it's a very small amount I'll add both zest and vodka. If
    it's a large amount I'll strain out most of the vodka. If you are using both zest and fruit
    just pasteuriz...

    I've got four first year Centennials growing very well. I picked off a cone or two for a friend
    to smell. The cones unmolested smelled very oniony similar to CTZ. But after doing the "Jim
    Koch" rub th...

  • Posted in thread: US-05 -> Belgian characteristics? on 08-15-2013 at 08:30 AM
    I second yooper I've gotten lots of peach like esters at 05's low end. I guess it's possible
    they mistook those peach esters for Belgian characteristics. If you post your recipe that might
    help us pin...

    I have the oxygen kit from morebeer where the stone is attached to the hose with a flare
    fitting. After I'm done using it I keep it in a jar with isopropyl between uses. That works
    well for me.

  • Posted in thread: 2013 Hop garden photo thread on 06-11-2013 at 04:50 AM
    So I have had my hops in the ground for 2 months now, water daily basis, and they are growing
    very slowly compared to what I have read and what I see in a lot of these posts. They are only
    first year ...

    If you follow the recipe and trust your system/ iBrewmaster(which I love) and you believe 1.082
    sounds legit. Then I would rehydrate 2 packs. I would switch over to two packs in the
    1.060-1.065 range ...

  • Posted in thread: Wit - 3944 not Fermenting out on 05-21-2013 at 10:36 PM
    Try giving the FV a little swirl to get some more yeast back in suspension. Obliviously don't
    shake it enough to make it splash. That has helped me in the past with 3724. I've used 3944 a
    ton, it slow...
