    Finally kegging the Rumble - a Pliny clone. Fermented down to 1.010 - 9.1% - yeesh!. I'll put
    up two cornies and maybe a few bonus bottles. Can't wait for this - it's gotten to be an annual
    favorite. ...

    Waitress at a restaurant in Newport Rhode Island over the Thanksgiving break - trying to
    explain an item on the draft list - "Oh, that's a double IPA, it's, like, totally, like really
    hoppy" while sim...

    It's a crime that with six nice homebrews on tap, we'll be away for turkey day. I'm gonna miss
    my kegerator, but I'll bring a few of my American IPAs (light and flowery, like 2Hearted), and
    a few of t...

    Every time I think about getting one of those FG hydrometers, I just re-read this thread! I'll
    still probably get one at some point, and just my luck (even thought I haven't broken one in a
    while), th...

    i was sitting in as the audio tech at a beer tasting event and heard a guy insist that the more
    hoppy a beer the high the alcohol content, and that hops=alcohol. FUNNY!they had an audio tech
    at a beer...

    Brand new finishing gravity hydro - bought because I was thinking "I am the sh*t, man, gonna
    get myself a special hydro just for finishing gravities!". Carefully extracted out of the
    shipping tube in ...

  • Posted in thread: Does Purging C02 release Aromatic from Dryhopped IPA's on 11-20-2015 at 11:25 AM
    It's an interesting question - never occurred to me before. I don't know if aroma is "lost" per
    se, but I think we're likely talking about very small measures. Probably too small to do any
    kind of leg...

    Brewed this yesterday afternoon and pitched S-04 around 7 last night. Glad I took today off cuz
    I had to add a blow-off this morning! Just hope the orange peel doesn't get in the
    way...Interesting - y...

    Up early today. Added stage two dry hops to a Pliny clone. Tested SG. Stable at 010. Man that's
    a dry beer - and bitterness is really high. Guess that will mellow a bit. Tested SG on the
    Christmas Car...
