Please taste the wort/beer at each step. Does the unfermented wort taste bitter/harsh?Does the
fermented beer in the fermentor taste bitter/harsh?Does the non-carbonated beer from the keg

Posted in thread: Hot growler- clearest beer ever?!? on 06-25-2015 at 07:19 PM
Truth be told I am satisfied with the whirlfloc + cold crash + gelatin combination I use. I
just saw the opportunity for a pun/joke, so I took it....but imagine if you didn't have to do
any of those, ...

I think most places recommend against ordering liquid yeasts during the peak of the summer

boil, and mayb...

to score some fresh Pliny The Elder.I've never had Heady Topper, nor Zombie Dust. I also have

I searched the forum, but I was surprised that this local "whale" beer didn't have it's own
clone thread. The brewmaster recently released his recipe, so I plan to give it a shot in the
Posted in thread: Marble Red Ale from "For the Love of Hops" on 06-05-2015 at 07:05 PM
