Thanks for the responses! I think I'll try slimming down the grain bill.Also, I have a
bar/grill near me that tries to go along with the theme of being a British pub, and I think
they might have Bass ...
Posted in thread: Pale ale dry hopping question, how much is too much? on 01-25-2013 at 01:24 PM
Forgot to add that whatever weight(s) you use, make sure they weigh more than the total weight
of the hops you are adding. Seems fairly obvious but I know of some who have overlooked this

A secondary is unnecessary imo. Just go ahead and bottle it and let it age for several months.
Since your abv will be quite high, the yeast will have a difficult time consuming the priming

The couple of times I added coffee to a stout I was quite pleased with the results. I brewed 2
cups (16 oz) coffee and let it cool in the freezer until it reached about 70 F. I then added it

Posted in thread: IPA hop schedule feedback on 01-22-2013 at 03:51 PM
Recipe looks good. I like your hop schedule but I'd suggest adding some hops at flameout as
well. I've never used Galaxy before but I hear good things. As far as Simcoe, I've used it as a
dry hop and ...

The rind of one lemon should do the trick. I'd toss it in with only a couple minutes left in

black w/ ruby highlights when held to the light as jperry stated. The only thing I would

Recipe looks good. If you don't want a lot of roasted flavors coming through I'd try to use
Dehusked Carafa III aka Carafa Special III. It doesn't contain the husks from the barley which
reduces its r...
