    Also, I might cut that 0.5 oz of Chinook at 5 minutes if you want it to be more towards a
    classic dubbel. Dubbels don't really need much late hopping and definitely not with American
    hops.

    I would not try to ferment it at 75F. You're just going to ruin the beer. You'll get off
    tasting esters and a ton of fusel alcohols. It's not going to taste like a Belgian, it will
    just have a hot alc...

    You should look into Brewer's Friend. It's web based so you can access it on any computer and
    smartphones. The paid version is like $10/year so it's very affordable. It has tons of
    calculators and sup...

    It looks like your sulfate and sodium levels are slightly elevated. I'm not sure about the
    sodium, but I know that sulfate will accentuate dryness and hops. I've also heard that sulfate
    does not do we...

  • Posted in thread: Proper scaling of recipes on 02-13-2015 at 03:25 PM
    So I decided to take care of this by boiling full wort and putting 6 gallons into the fermenter
    instead of 5 (or 5.2 as some recipes call for). Well, noob that I am, I didn't realize the
    effect an ext...

  • Posted in thread: Anybody willing to critique my first all grain IPA recipe? on 02-13-2015 at 02:06 PM
    Yeah that recipe looks great. The only change I would make is what others have said about
    lowering the IBUs. Just cut your bittering addition enough to get it into the 50-70 IBU range,
    depending on ho...

  • Posted in thread: Proper scaling of recipes on 02-13-2015 at 01:46 PM
    As others have said: They have tons of calculators and they have a feature on the recipe
    creator that will scale everything for you. If you're going from 5 to 6 gallons then you do
    need to increase ...

    If it's all mixed together I'd buy more 2-row and add it, then save half for later. This is a
    good idea. If you want to be precise about it you could do some math. You added 8.8 lbs and you
    want 4 pou...

  • Posted in thread: F**K up at HBS - IIPA Thoughts on 02-11-2015 at 04:33 PM
    I would increase your hops a bit to compensate and maybe lower your mash temp a little since it
    will be such a big beer. But since it was just Vienna and Munich, you should be fine. I brewed
    an all Vi...

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopping on 02-11-2015 at 04:11 PM
    Hops have natural antibacterial properties and when you dry hop with them you are putting them
    into a very unfavorable environment (alcohol, low pH, low oxygen) for bacteria growth anyway.
    So you're r...
