Hmmm. You've just rocked my world. I may have to hunt down that pod cast. Mechanisitically I
guess utilization from an IBU standpoint is related to time exposed to heat, rather than
extraction of AA f...

Yooper, I was just going by Palmer's book... citing a reference from '94. Any chance you can
send a link or reference to more modern data? Would love to know it/see it. The only time I've
done late ad...

Especially if working with IPAs or IIPAs (or any other hop bomb-y sort of thing) be a little
cautious using only late malt additions. Alpha acid extraction (thus IBUs) increase as the

Personally I think that sounds just about perfect. You May have bit of extra head space in a 3
gallon carboy, but the transfer should kick up enough yeast/CO2 to coat the beer and prevent

Seconded. The yeast character is very complex -- see how you like it alone first.

Bierhaus, thanks for weighing in! The last time I used this yeast the krausen fell in the first
week as expected, so I was pretty surprised by this turn of events. I think I know what you
mean about r...

Also, one can top crop with a carboy simply by using a longer blowoff tube in the fermenting
vessel, push it down into the kreusen (If not blowing off) then using a catch vessel with an
inlet and outl...

Glad to know that this isn't just something wrong with my beer. I actually took another gravity
reading last night, and despite what looks like persistent fermentation, it's still sitting at
1.016. I ...

brewing 2.5 gallon...
