  • Posted in thread: Why is everyone only into IPA's on 09-01-2015 at 07:48 PM
    I fully admit to being very much into IPA/IIPA and APA - pretty much anything with distinct hop
    character. I generally alternate when I brew - every other beer I brew is a hoppy style. The

    Avoid fermenting in your bottling bucket.Honestly, I'll admit to having done it, and if your
    sanitation is good, it's not a big deal IMO. I would be a bit leery of "racking" by draining
    through the bo...

    (6 gallons) of reverse osmosis or spring water (I wouldn't get distilled unless you want to do
    a LOT of ...

    botulism, it did not taste sour, but I think the IBU level would keep lacto at bay. It did not
    smell like garbag...
