  • Posted in thread: Lagunitas Sucks clone? on 12-28-2014 at 12:56 PM
    I've had Sucks here and there over the past couple years. Only had one bomber of Enjoy By
    earlier this year. Very difference beasts. I tend not to be a big DIPA fan, as I often seem to
    get a sweetness...

    Been getting a foam problem that was only resolved when I finally cleaned my beer lines. At the
    time I used some BLC solution in an empty corny keg and gassed it up to push it through the
    line and fau...

    I had to adjust it as it arrived a bit off (wider at one end). .038 is what I've used for my

    I've been brewing for almost 3 years, most of which has been all-grain via Denny Conn's
    cooler-tun/batch sparging method. I have private well water here on the MA/NH border. I know we
    had a basic test...

    My Mosaic IPA used Mosaic and Chinook (2-to-1 ratio) at 20, 5, and dryhop. 1 oz Mosaic at 20
    and 5, and then 2 oz Mosaic in the dry hop (half those amounts of Chinook at same times). It
    was fruity as ...

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Why is that? I love Reds Rye!Founders wasn't happy with how Red's

    After 16 days (last week dryhopping in secondary with 2 oz Mosaic, 1 oz Chinook) it's down to
    1.011. The gravity sample I took smells amazing! Reminded me of the complexity of Lagunitas'
