    Do you use a pH meter ? Sounds to me like you have a mash pH issue that is throwing everything
    off from a flavor and aroma perspective. Also, you ought to get a chemical analysis of your
    water to know...

    New to All Grain but this is a recipe that speaks to my heart. I've tried to keep up with the
    many revisions of this recipe like bumping the 2-row to 18lbs and dropping the Warrior.. I was
    wondering i...

    Pulled a gravity reading/sample on the 670 batch yesterday. It's dropped to 1.005 so it was
    time to bottle. I bottled up the entire 5 gal. batch. The sample on this one was outstanding.
    The beer has a...

    The Mad Fermentationist just happened to post about Farmhouse/Saison style beers. Lots of good
    info, especially on blending yeast strains. Click here.

    How did the one dry hopped with simcoe compare?I didn't notice them and they didn't make much
    of a difference. The citra and mosaic were very dominant. If I was doing this again i'd just
    stick to 2 oz...

    Last keg of this blew last night. It's been a good one. I've won several gold medals in
    competitions with this pale ale and it's also placed in BOS in some of those. Will be brewing
    this again soon. W...

  • Posted in thread: Traditional Kolsch (w/non-traditional dry hop) on 06-22-2014 at 05:08 PM
    I kegged both batches today. Both were equal in clarity. No yeast in suspension. Sampled both
    and the Kolsch II had more of a bready/lemon note to it. Interesting but definitely a
    noticeable differenc...

    Put the secondary in the fridge down to 35F and will keep it there for about 3.5 weeks and then
    will warm back up to about 65F and add in mosaic dry hops for about a week and then cold crash
    again til...
