    Go to the brew science subforum and look at the water chemistry primer thread. There's general
    advice for starting with ro water that doesn't involve spreadsheets and in depth chemistry

    I used RO water and added in minerals and acid. I used 8.75lbs of grain with 2.3mL 88% lactic

    I wanted more hops, so I dropped an ounce each of citra and Simcoe into the keg in a voile bag.
    It was ve...

    I finish fermentation, then transfer to the keg. I fine with gelatin, chill, and carbonate at

    I made a cirta only hoppy session with citra from two different sources. Huge garlic smell and
    flavor. Can't drink it. This sucks. No more 2015 citra for me.Made a 2015 hop Mosaic/Citra

    Yes, that's the one that caught my eye first. The Campari IPA looks interesting but at the
    price of a liter of Campari I'd be hesitant to pour 2 or 3 of those in there at bottling time.
    At least the b...
