    From what I've read, IPA should be dry, mashing low helps it ferment out, for a more malty
    style like Scotch ale, or stout, mash high. Some people even add corn sugar to dry out an IPA.

    You may find that it won't be fully carbed if you bottle 4/28, and drink it 5/18. Depends on
    your gravity, but higher abv beers tend to take longer to carbonate. I would try to give it at
    least 4 week...

    I like the amount of hops, I don't think you can add too much from 5 min to flameout. We are
    talking about IIPA here. This guy on basic brewing added a kg of hops at flameout, and it
    actually tasted...

  • Posted in thread: So who is the best vendor now days? on 01-17-2013 at 08:22 PM
    Even with 10% off, those prices are high (compare with Farmhouse Brewing Supply)... Selection
    is also small (compare with Rebel Brewer). IMO the brew builder software is extremely limited.
    Maybe it's ...

    It works well enough that I have used it for 3 batches now. I always knew I would lose one of
    the parts to my bottling wand, but I'm surprised it didn't happen before my 53rd batch.

    So it turns out that the gose style has experienced a small resurgence in popularity. Sam Adams
    makes Verloren, which is limited release, but you may be able to find some. Also, a gose took
    gold in th...

    Maybe the link is wrong, but I didn't see any acidulated malt in that recipe. The grain bill is
    "70/30 mix of Pils and Munich malt", no room in there for 2 lbs of acidulated malt.

    Man that first recipe, the Double Imperial Stout looks DELICIOUS! If I wasn't already set
    brewing this recipe this weekend I would switch to that one. I will be brewing that soon!Yeah a
    good way to fi...

    Admittedly I'm not up at 1.124 (or 1.132!) but these recipes all use more than 2 lbs of black
    or roasted malt (per 5 gallon batch):

    I knew it would go missing eventually, but I never got a backup bottling wand, so I finally
    lost the tiny black valve. MacGyvered it with a drywall screw.
