    Here's my latest Frankenstein idea. I have a water/lemon juice solution in my 2.6 gallon oak
    barrel to keep it preserved, and after trying the water, I thought it tasted pretty [email protected] good.

    I've heard many people share your opinion. I'm not sure if it's just my taste preference, but
    I'll routinely add up to a pound of honey malt in my 5-gallon batches of ipa's and pale ales.
    Thanks for t...

    I have a small, 2.6 gallon barrel that I wanted to age a strong wheat beer in, but I've only
    ever aged a barleywine, and my experience with wheat is limited. I'm looking for thoughts on my
    recipe.3 ga...

    I was doing some digging and found this thread. Shoshin, did u ever toss this together? I'm
    playing around with a smaller 3 gal. batch that I plan to put in my oak barrel. I know, I know,

  • Posted in thread: HOW to get coffee flavor in light color beer on 05-31-2016 at 11:35 PM
    I'm drinking a coffee ale that has a very pronounced coffee taste, but ZERO coffee color. My
    friend wants to attempt a clone of it, and I (like a fool) assured him that I would have no
    problem putting...

    After missing my numbers by a few points, my IPA vision became a IIPA dream! Probably one of my
    best beers too date. I made the mistake of kegging this beer on Graduation weekend...and the 5
    gallons d...

  • Posted in thread: Does cold crashing wlp007 leave enough yeast? on 05-03-2016 at 01:06 AM
    The title says it all. I've heard that 007 drops out of suspension like a pair of cement shoes,
    so I want to know if I'll have enough yeast to carbonate my bottles if I cold crash for 48
    hours.Thanks ...

  • Posted in thread: Increasing Temp with WPL007 Question on 05-01-2016 at 04:44 PM
    Three days later we're down to .013, putting the beer at 7.5%. I was worried about missing my
    numbers, but it tastes Amazing. I'm not sure how much of the backbone comes from the Victory
    malt or the 0...

  • Posted in thread: Full-boil benefits with BIAB? on 04-29-2016 at 08:58 PM
    I can't even remember what my original question was. Haha!Just for ****s, what about copper? I
    don't think I have an extra grand laying around, but is copper any better by any measure?

  • Posted in thread: Increasing Temp with WPL007 Question on 04-28-2016 at 11:34 AM
    My gravity was at .016 before bumping the temp up to 68-70. 4 days later, there is still a very
    small bit of activity in my bubbler (maybe not enough to make a *bloop*, but enough to add
    upwards press...
