    I believe that if you lower the serving pressure sufficiently you will eventually get your keg
    system properly balanced. But that will require that the cider in the keg become less
    carbonated, which i...

    I am sorry that the Admins and other supporters used their time to respond to OP.

    If I had to pick one, it would be West Yorkshire Ale 1469. I like the fruity profile, with a
    bit of mineral and nutty finish. If I could have two, they would be 1469 and 1968 for my ESBs.

    It's really a great beer. Not sure why it's so remarkable, as a saison is a simple recipe and
    one is pretty much like any other, but this one is my go to in the spring. Heck, it's my go to
    year round....

    Anyone used something other than orange blossom honey for this recipe with good results? How
    about this one? - a friend of mine keeps bees. I use his stuff almost exclusively. Always
    great and I rea...

    As noted by another poster - this is what I do. Not saying it is right or required.I condition
    all my grains, barely, wheat, oats - everything. 2% water by weight, sprayed on with a spray
    bottle. Exam...

    Depending on what you like - 2 row and 1.5 lbs of Victor or Vienna (I'd go with Vienna) and
    nothing else. Or, add a bit of the C-120 for a more mid-West/East Coast style. 4.5 lbs of other
    malts in add...

    If your three choices were the only choices, I would move to a warmer room and dryhop. But, 59
    is cool for an ale. I can't think of much other than Wyeast Scotch Ale that ferments that low.
    Assuming y...

  • Posted in thread: 2015 hop crop on 02-01-2016 at 01:41 AM
    I just opened a fresh one pound bag of Citra - 2015 crop. It did not smell like the 2014 crop
    to me. Lots of onion and garlic - not the big citrus from past years. I brewed with it anyway.
    I am a bit ...

    Second the gelatin taking a few days to work. Sometimes it works in 24 hours, sometimes it
    takes 72+. But, generally, if you leave beer sit long enough undisturbed, it will clear. Having
    an IPA now th...
