    I brewed the Hopdunk back in February when Simcoe hops were still available. I also added the
    1% boost. If you like Hopslam, you'll like this one. It's definitely a big beer. A Fall sipper.
    My final A...

    When I'm not brewing... I'm honing my wine skills. My wife and I have had over 100 different
    varietals (read: grape varieties) in wine form. And as always, I'm cooking the food to pair
    with the beer o...

    I dont know if its the movement or the cold, but i cold crash after dry hopping (pellets) and i
    have had good luck having everything drop down to the cakeThe cold spot in my basement (53F)

    I dry hopped my Surly Furious clone 10 days ago, and the top hasn't cleared. Do you need to
    wait til it clears before bottling, or is it no big deal if it doesn't clear before?I made this
    same recipe ...

    Well, the taste was that clovey, banana complexity that is seen from German Hefes. I will know
    a little better once carbonation is complete. I'm still learning to trust my palate when I try

    I don't think that the 60-65 would affect your beer either way. I've rested my beers in both
    temperatures. As the winter cold hit, the basement got colder and the 55F temps were easy to
    hit. I have no...

    I recently dry hopped an IPA with Ahtanum hops for 14 days. They were pellet hops. The grassy
    notes were not present but the piney, citrusy nose was very pronounced. It all depends on your
    preference ...

    It's an extract batch. I suspect that his reading is off by a bit too, but I've seen hefes
    attenuate really low before. The Weihenstephaner yeast goes nutz if it gets too warm.Thanks for
    the advice al...
