Posted in thread: Dried to 28% weight on 08-27-2015 at 02:04 AM
Just vacuum sealed my hops and they were 28% of their original, fresh-picked weight. I know
ideally they would be closer to 20%, but I'm curious about what bad things happen when you
don't dry the hop...

Used S-04 yeast and I brewed this on August 3. Fermentation started and finished fast, and I'm
trying to figure out whether I should bottle this or next weekend. Fermented at 65 for the
first five day...

Just had my last bottle of this 7.5 months after brewing (I set it aside to see how it "aged"
). It was delicious.

Looks like feeler gauges run about $6 with free Prime shipping on Amazon if anyone else is
looking to get a set.

I ran it through again at the same setting (my guess would be 0.025-0.030, but my mill only has
labels for 0, 0.055, and 0.110).This is what it looked like. Not sure how different it ended up

This is great feedback, guys. Looks like I'll run it through again tomorrow before beginning
the mash.I'll start by leaving the gap the same, and see how much more I get out of it that
way.Though I'd ...

I'm brewing my first batch since getting my own grain mill and was hoping for some feedback
about my crush. I'm a BIABer, so also consider that.Good, bad? Should I run it through again?

Can anyone provide feedback on the final color you ended up with for those who followed the
recipe in the first post but used lighter Munich (in the 7 SRM range as opposed to the 20 SRM
in the recipe)...

I couldn't find Munich as dark as the original recipe (mine is about 7 SRM compared to 20 from
the recipe).Accordingly, the color of my beer won't be quite dark enough to match the original
