    Looks tasty to me! I made a rye pale several months ago (you can find the recipe on the left if
    you want) with 2 lbs of rye. It turned out awesome. Good call on the Chinook dry hop, too.

    It is not sweet tasting thought I find it dry and kinda bitter from the roast malts.I think
    that'll mellow out and allow some other flavors to come through. Don't worry about it - you
    made beer and it...

    Very cool. I hit an efficiency of 75% on my first AG batch (and then never hit that again until
    I adjusted my sparging technique). Nice blog, BTW.

    Good call! It also improves the clarity of your beer since it's cooling down faster.

    Yep, I've got some US-05 in the freezer right now.

    Check the pressure on the hose(s) leading into the copper part as you up the water pressure.
    Too much can pop the connection or split the line.+1. I never run my cold water into the
    chiller at full bl...

    Your question is kind of vague so I'll guess you mean how long should you let your brew ferment
    before it's complete, the most honest answer - your beer isn't done fermenting until you have
    some good ...

    80 is ok. It just carbes a little faster,in my experience.This has been my experience too.

    Do not back sweeten it. If the FG is 1.019 then it's plenty sweet.Let it age. Sometimes roasted
    and biscuit flavors come out the longer it sits. Think of it like a marinade or chili. The more
    it sits,...

  • Posted in thread: My first crack at a recipe. Thoughts? on 01-20-2012 at 09:09 PM
    Looks pretty good to me. I would mash much lower; however, I prefer a dry mouthfeel in my
    APAs.I agree on the hop schedule though - move your Amarillo to one of the 10/5 minute
    additions with Cascade ...
