Thanks for the input guys. Are there different types of carbonation drops? I bough some of
these at my LHBS. I tried putting one drop in a bottle and IMMEDIATELY started fizzing over...

OK, here is what happened... I’m fairly new at homebrewing. The last two batches I made
(all from*DFH 90 minute clone) also called for 1 cup of priming sugar, but I decided to only
use part of i...

my LHBS i...

Does it hurt anything if a lot of the trub and hop sludge from the boil make it into the
primary fermenter? I just finished my first full boil and I had a hell of a time getting the
wort into the ferm...

My yeast is the White Labs (1 tube) California Ale Yeast WLP001. Unless someone suggests

70% of the hops...

thanks whoneedsabeer. I think I can eyeball the 1/2 oz packets close enough down to 0.3 oz. My
only concern is your recipe results in 6.4%ABV where my recipe specifies 8.8%. Guss at this
this point I'...

thanks whoneedsabeer, so if this was your beer... would you reduce the hop additions a bit for
a full boil? I'm trying to get as close as possible to the Dogfish Head I am cloning.
