Posted in thread: APA Fermentation Schedule? on 07-17-2014 at 03:32 AM
Most of my APAs and IPAs are being dispensed from the keg within 10 days of brewing day. I
admire the patience of so many here... Though it was once the rage, the only time I rack to
secondary these d...

Making a batch of Parabola in the next few days. We live a few miles from the Paso brewery and
visit often for tastings and notes from the brewers. While visiting their HBS the other day, I
picked up ...
Posted in thread: Sample After 3 Days In Primary Was Insanely Bitter on 03-25-2014 at 05:35 PM
As others have noted, 3 days is kinda soon to judge. That being said, that hop schedule would
be too weak for my wife... who, it must be said, has mutated taste buds...
Posted in thread: New to force carbing on 02-09-2014 at 05:02 PM

beers, but I mak...

Good deals and great to see so many people happy about sourcing their tanks... As important if
not more so is finding a good, reliable and affordable place to exchange them. Once you find
one, treat t...

It will be fine... probably even better to thin the honey a bit anyway...
Posted in thread: Is bottle carbing possible after cold crash? on 02-05-2014 at 02:58 PM
Sure... eventually all bottles will carb up, some sooner than others depending on the beer and
yeast. I usually dose with added yeast for big IPBA's and all big Belgians, not so much for
Wit's, APA's ...

Wierd... I did it again and now the OG is 1.076.The recipe calls for WLP002 English Ale, which
