Posted in thread: Out of beer again. Now what??` on 11-21-2014 at 05:46 AM
I don't know if it fits your criteria for a fall beer, but for showcasing hops I really like
the grainbill from the Russian River Row 2 Hill 56 clone. I've been playing around with
different hops, as ...

I dry hop in the primary after crashing with gelatin. The beer is very clear without any yeast
to strip aroma. To me it's not worth the extra transfer or possible oxidation. Unless you purge
Posted in thread: Can keg lines be too long on 11-19-2014 at 11:42 PM
I did turn my pressure down so it wouldn't over carbonate. My pour is about 10 sec for a pint.
I think I'll just mess with the angle of the glass to get a good head.

It's my first kegged beer. My second is carbing up still. I'll have to see how that one pours

tap to the ...

21C ambient. Gen...

I think it matters on how long you secondary whether you should re-yeast or not. I secondary

Posted in thread: Grassy taste from keg hopping on 11-11-2014 at 11:40 PM
I did take the dry hops out and let it sit for a week in the kegerator. The grassiness did fade
to where it's drinkable but it's still their in the flavor not so much the aroma. I'm going to
throw 2 o...
Posted in thread: How soon is too soon to bottle after gelatin? on 11-11-2014 at 03:22 AM
Depends on how cold the beer is when crashing. If it's in the 30's. 48 hrs is usually the
minimum I would crash before bottling. I usually go 3-7 days.
