  • Posted in thread: Pellicle in Belgian IPA on 12-09-2012 at 01:02 PM
    Bottled this yesterday and poured myself a wee glass of flat beer. Seriously tasty stuff - like
    a citrusy Orval (with Cascade and Nelson hops). Definitely Brett going on in there, fruity
    funkiness mix...

    +1 High hopping rates do not make up for inadequate sanitation.I was asking whether it would
    keep 'certain' infections at bay. I am under the impression that a high amount of hops favours
    sacc over ot...

    I've yet to taste it since the pellicle formed but it smells distinctly like pineapple. My only
    hope is that the dry-hops do not fade too much. I'm going to bottle this weekend, it smells
    amazing. I'm...

    I'd be quite pleased if it was brett - the alcohol level is around 9%. I think i'll bottle soon
    and drink quicky to enjoy at least some of them dry-hopped.Taste is good, hoppy fruity and
    belgian yeast...

    I have a pellicle forming on my Belgian IPA - a dusty, bubbly pellicle. Not sure where it came
    from, nothing was deliberately added to the beer to wildify it.Given the amount of hops used
    (200g+) woul...

    I'm been swaying over sharing this recipe, as it is not very precise so would be difficult to
    recreate - but seeing as how my idea for the thing is that it will continually change with
    every iteration...

    I'm making one at the moment. Tasting a sample after 5 days dry hopping.Used Dana hops
    bittering, cascade at end of boil and dry hopping with cascade and nelson. Using T58 yeast and
    also poured in 1li...

    I do brew in a bag with a very simple setup. I have 2 pots: 15 litres and 9 litres. I heat up
    my mash water to about 70C (usually 15 litres water to 5lbs grain). I put the Bag into one my
    fermenting b...

    Why don't you split the batch and add the 3728 to half - or maybe even a gallon? If it turns
    out well you can use the yeast cake on another batch.
