So I am brand new to this MASSIVE thread but the clone on the first page is the most up to date
from all the research right and then the comments are people make tweaks to it right?Does the

Well, I brewed the clone this morning. Got distracted kegging another beer while chilling and
my temp dropped all the way to 97F before adding my whirlpool hops. Was going to rack
everything off of th...

Don't sweat it. Provided you followed the recipe correctly, it should all come together nicely
at the end. The wort you have now is nowhere near the beer you will have after dry hopping.

I believe that if you are using Hopshot, then a 90 minute boil is required to get the correct
IBU's @ a given specific gravity. Remember that you will be shooting for 120 IBU's. 10 mL of
Hopshot @ 1.0...

DIPA (HT) IN DA HAUS! Lowered the kegerator to 38F on Sunday. Kegged 1/2, bottled 1/2 on

I had a few sips...

Thanks. Will do. Just had a taste (1 oz.) 48 hours into the first hop addition and it is
awesome. I've never had Heady but this beer gets the taste buds rockin'. :mug: Coming soon!

I'm in the dry hopping stage of a heady topper(ish) DIPA. Using WLP001. As I was adding my
first addition of three (@ 4 days apart) of pellet hops, I apparently had a large quantity of
methane gas flo...

Try making a tea (with fresh spices) and adding it to the kegged beer, then recarb. You can add
a little bit at a time to get the flavor you want. Be careful when making the spice tea. 160F
for 20 min...

Banjo Burner. Don't cut corners on price when it comes to beer equipment. You will only end up
buying twice or getting hurt. Also a really nice one is Blichmann. Save up and do it right.

Be patient. My first pumpkin took almost 3 months with Nottingham. I took it out of secondary
too soon (I was very new at this) and then it over carbonated. It finally settled down at close
to a year!
