Posted in thread: Off Flavor - Oxidation? on 05-02-2013 at 03:28 AM
wow, I have the SAME exact problem with my hoppy beers. They just taste a bit dull, slightly
vegetal, a little fusel-alcoholy, and caramel-ish (even though I use barely any caramel malt).
I mean, the ...

Holy Jesus, don't leave it that long at 30 psi. It will turn out like soda (or even more
carbed)Turn it down to 11 or 12 psi and let it sit to carbonate. It probably tastes flat
because you are blowin...

lol non salty bad bacon? I can't relate to that at all. But I will agree that Notty (and S-04
as well) at higher temps do not turn out well. If the first 48 hours or so were overly warm,

Sweet Jesus lawd almighty have mercy on that IIPA. Dont use that water profile. If you want to
make correct adjustments, download Bru'nwater and aim for the pale ale profile. And see how you
Posted in thread: Calculating IBU from hopped starter on 03-12-2013 at 08:09 PM
I'd be hard pressed to say it would matter much. 1000 mL isn't a large percentage of 6 gallons.
I mean if you absolutely wanted to make sure you could just approximate by 95% of the beer
being your du...

One packet is not nearly enough for 10 gallons in the 1060's. When pitching two packets, one

I agree watching out with the golden naked. It can lend an odd (for my taste) tart berry/fruit
flavor in high amounts. Not quite what I look for in an IPA. Also, the victory adds a nice
Posted in thread: Competition question on 03-01-2013 at 01:42 AM
You'll have to read the competition rules. Some allow you to enter two in the same category if
they are in different subcategories. For example, American IPA and English IPA, 14B and 14A.
Some only al...

Holy Acid Malt BatmanI would take other people's suggestions and build a water profile. I don't
think Acid malt is meant to be used like that. Congrats on your first competition though!

Its your first batch. I had to navigate through a minefield of exploding bottles with my first
