    That's a pretty high OG, so I would expect it to have that "hot" taste. It needs time. I would
    guess you will finish around 7% abv. I would just leave the dry hops for 7 days. Then keg if
    you are at O...

    Uh oh... that's not good. You're gonna want to bottle it up when it's finished and ship it to
    some of us concerned parties; we'll sample multiple bottles of it for you, just to make sure it
    won't make...

    What kind of beers are you making? Can't be anything over 15 IBU since you're only getting 15%
    of a theoretical 100IBU max after diluting with so much water.

    2 hour mash??? What temps did you hit for mash/sparge?Also, sweet wort only means sweet beer if
    your yeast only attenuate on the low side. I'd certainly pitch more yeast than one packet in a

    gallons of Strong Ale, 10 gallons of ESB, and 15 gallons of Nut Brown fermenting as well.

    I happen to love shorts. After reading your comments I believe you would love Terra Firma.
    Their beers are very balanced and including their IPA. But they focus on a lot of other style
    that I all real...

  • Posted in thread: How long have you left a beer in the primary? on 08-29-2015 at 05:09 PM
    So I've had an IPA in the primary fermenter for the last 9 months, because I got lazy and ran
    out of time/money/effort to keep brewing last fall. I filled two bottles last week, added
    enough dextrose ...

    Shorts is in Bellaire. I'll be honest, I am not hot for Shorts. I know a lot of people like
    them, but I find many of the flavors they offer are not to my palate, so a lot of what makes
    them special is...
