    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
    doesn't project the greatest image of MLS. If frozen envelopes are good enough for David Stern
    and Patrick...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Fruity Belgian Yeast Recommendations on 08-24-2014 at 11:38 PM'd read through that chart and see what sounds good,
    bearing in mind that there are other options as well. Wyeast sells an equivalent of everything

    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
    etc... and the beer is ready. RDWHAHB and all that. It's also possible that having a metal
    kettle hold an extr...

    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
    it as such, but here's some reading for you, a 5-way Brett strain comparison:

  • Posted in thread: Saison, the blank canvas of brewing on 08-15-2014 at 10:17 PM
    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, ...
