Posted in thread: Quick help: Double IPA late hops on 08-27-2014 at 01:37 AM
I don't know much about FWH, so no help there. Nor have I ever had Pliny or Heady Topper or any
other legendary and impossible to find IPA. But my hopping philosophy is essentially the same
as yours. ...

Yea, I like the league to, but involving an envelope draw in determining where a player lands

This beer has officially become "weird." After one week in the kettle sour with the sour
starter and about 3 handfuls of crushed grain (one each at days 3, 5, and 6) there is little in
the way of sour...

I misread your original post, so just ignore what I said earlier...When I make sours, I just
toss a handful of 2-row into the wort and put it in the hottest place I can find. If your
second starter do...

The most likely answer is that everything will be fine when the yeast finishes fermenting

I brewed a 7% version of what you're suggesting. I used 2-row, 3% crystal and 7% toasted malt
with 530 and a heavy addition of Saaz as a FWH, along with a ton of pumpkin. It was really
nice, almost fa...

Is there solid reason to use a blend over individual strains, or to use strains over the
blend?The argument for the blend is twofold. One, you're buying one pack instead of 3-6. I'd
rather buy one bl...

From what I've read, Trois is not very traditionally Brett-like as a secondary. I've never used

My saisons consist of 2-row, a little toasted malt, saison yeast I harvested from a bottle of
Dupont, and hops in amounts and times that suit my whimsy. I ferment as hot as i can. I don't
add spices, ...
