  • Posted in thread: Help! What BJCP category should I use? on 06-11-2015 at 07:02 PM
    I'd call it a blonde ale -- it's a broad category that would fit fine. If you wanted something
    else I guess you could try kolsch or cream ale, though neither of those is a great match.

    With 13 oz of Special B, it's going to be very deep red, probably too dark to do well as an
    American IPA or IIPA, also likely to be too sweet on the finish if you think it's really going
    to finish at ...

    That looks like a fine IPA recipe. I like my IPAs with lots of hop character, so I might use a
    little more at flameout, but I'm sure this would also be good just as it is.

    All of those are hops that work well in an APA or an IPA. It's hard to give a hop schedule
    without knowing gravity of your beer or Alpha Acids of the hops, but I'll give you my general
    schedule for bo...

    Like with any of the flaked brewing grains, the rolled oats (aka oatmeal) went through hot
    rollers that pre-gelatinized them. You should be fine mashing them just as you normally would.
    That's what I'...

    In that Brewing Network podcast with Dan, he implies that he uses winemaking techniques in
    making his fruit beers. I heard this as implying that he stops fermentation before complete
    fermentation has ...

    Just let me know if you want to sell & what the price would be with no shipping. Thanks

    Where are you at in NC? If you're in the Triangle & not paying shipping (so the price might
    drop whatever shipping would be), I'd be interested.

  • Posted in thread: Carafa II for Altbier on 09-16-2013 at 01:54 PM
    One way to get color without much roast is to add this Carafa II at sparging instead of mashing
    it. This will decrease the roast contribution. The other possibility is cold steeping it. Do
    either of t...
