    Perhaps not pure alcohol, but greater than 20% if you can freeze colder than about 0 degrees
    fahrenheit.Pasteurization is a great way to stop fermentation, maintain any sweetness, and stop

    I'm not sure I buy all the arguments on here about these all-in-one systems taking out all the
    fun of brewing. I've been considering moving from my 3-tier system to a Grainfather recently
    and it seems...

    5 gallons=52 beers.If you're making and drinking 52 beers every 2-3 weeks you have my respect.
    That's also averaging almost 4 beers per day, just of homebrew.Building up a pipeline, and
    holding off on...

    Noble hops, but I've used Cascade and Centennial to lend some citrus flavor with success, too.

    Pretty right on. Depends on age of yeast, gravity of beer to be fermented, etc., of course.

    Taste it and see. If its bad dump it, if its good keg or bottle it with fresh yeast.

    Anyone remember what a "suicide" was? Maybe it was region-specific. That's what we called it as
    kids when you blended every kind of soda that was available. I grew up in NW Ohio. It was
    common to ask ...

    Sitting on the yeast for a month or two is fine. No need to secondary and bulk aging helps
    clean up off flavors.

    For the "tripel", the recipe isn't going to make anything like most tripels you have
    tasted.Typical tripel grain bill is around 80% pilsner malt, 5% aromatic, and 15% sugar.
    Granulated table sugar is ...

  • Posted in thread: Figuring out my hop additions and IBUS. on 01-30-2016 at 01:24 AM
    Are you adjusting hop alpha acid levels, or just using default settings? Magnum and chinook can
    run much higher than 13.5% and 13.0%, for example. Are your other numbers hitting what
