  • Posted in thread: Anyone brewed an IPA with EKG ? on 06-17-2015 at 12:38 AM
    I just dry-hopped a batch on Saturday. The only real difference between the original recipe and
    mine is that I used West Yorkshire Ale (1469). My OG was 3 points low, but it finished at
    1.008, 7 point...

  • Posted in thread: Almost ready to start kegging, a couple more questions/concerns. on 06-17-2015 at 12:30 AM
    Question 1 - You can take a fully carbed keg off the gas for a few days without concern.
    Question 2 - Not so sure on that one. The problem I see is that it is tough to seal the keg
    without pressure. S...

    I have the basic cooler, propane, 10 gallon pot all grain set up. I have about 55 all grain
    batches under my belt. About 15 extract. From my perspective:Why do you brew? For me, I brew
    because I like ...

  • Posted in thread: How long does it take you ? on 06-15-2015 at 01:18 AM
    5 - 5.5 from start to finish on brew day. You can add to this about 45 minutest I spend the
    night before to draw and treat water, gather and check equipment, etc. I'm kinda slow, I think.

  • Posted in thread: IPA brewers, do you harvest yeast? on 06-12-2015 at 09:31 PM
    Generally, no. I use mostly US-05 for my IPAs, so it is relatively inexpensive and it is super
    convenient. I did harvest my Conan and intend to harvest it again. I also harvest top cropping
    yeast when...

    I go 30 lbs for 36 hours; 48-ish for higher ABV beers. For some reason, they seem to take
    longer. I keep my keezer at 37 and do not have a circulation fan. I would go no longer than 3
    days at 20 lbs.

  • Posted in thread: Need a fruity English Pale ale or bitters recipe on 06-10-2015 at 11:42 PM
    I don't have any experience with 1318 (yet). Brewing with it this weekend actually. It is
    supposed to be the Boddington's strain which does have a fruit note to it on tap, so I would
    think that would ...
