    There are a couple of British IPAs that use British Munich malt (seriously, that has been a
    thing for over a hundred years). I wouldn't use more than 1/2lb of crystal malt. Make sure to
    keep sulphate ...

    High sulphate is good

    I dry hopped mine with 140g dry hops (70g Mandarina and 70g Melon). No hop aroma. Almost
    nothing. I'm very disappointed with these hops, I had the same disappointment with Polaris hops
    last year.I'll ...

    I've used it several times and it's really reliable. It takes a day or two to start but I think
    I've made three beers with it and they've all come out clean and well attenuated. Just chucked
    a pack of...

    The base grist of a traditional East India Porter is hard to beat. For modern tastes swap to
    less bitterness, modern hops, and more late additions. London's The Kernel makes some similar
    ones commerci...

    Classic porter grist (works really well): an oatmeal stout brewers added even less than 1%
    oats! The cheats!

    The recipe seems fine to me (I'd drop maybe the crystal malt). The main thing that will help
    you with hop punch is the water treatment. If you want to add another yeast to your backburner
    I do like th...

    So I brewed this one and as an impatient person I tasted the beer after it had sat in the
    bottle for 5 days. The result: little to none taste of hops. I hopped the beer as
    follows:60min:20g Nelson Sau...

  • Posted in thread: How do you "double" a beer recipe (and I don't mean the quantity)? on 01-15-2017 at 03:08 PM
    Lots of ways to do it. British breweries would traditionally partygile all the singles,
    doubles, triples, etc, from a single mash and a couple of boils. The way I personally tend to
    do it is to increa...
