Posted in thread: Recipe feedback appreciated... Lavender IPA on 06-03-2015 at 09:07 PM
I made a White IPA with lavender. I used .25 oz of lavender at flame out per suggestions on
HBT. I really like what it adds to the beer. I notice it far more now (kegged/carbed) than I
did when I took...

Needs a much bigger dry hop. I'd add 1 oz each of Centennial/Amarillo at 60 (frankly, I'd
probably get an ounce of Warrior or Magnum or Apollo for bittering). Push everything else down
to 10 minutes o...

The wife has requested "something interesting", and has given the stamp of approval for a honey

60 minutes........... Was the original a mis calc? H.W.No. I knew what I wanted IBU wise and
was working ...

How large a brew is it? With a 5.5 gallon brew and one ounce of Nelson for 60 minutes...... and
no other hop, the IBUs should be in the low 50's... (with leaf not pellet) The AAs are 12.5

I've used Nelson many times for flavor...... never "wasted it" on bittering, though the high AA

I'm also a big fan of 3711. I'm not sure if I have used a more forgiving and fast yeast. I'd

I like the S. Goldings option.I did a very good saison with Bobek(similar) and it was bloody
greatI ended up going the Nelson Sauvin route because the Styrian Goldings at the LHBS were
1.8% AA, and I ...
