Posted in thread: Summit Hops - Anyone tried them? on 06-09-2012 at 12:09 AM
Oscar Blues' Gubna is an all Summit IIPA. Unfortunately it suffers from the onion affliction.
It's the only beer from them that I haven't liked. That being said, I've used it on multiple

distinguishing characteristic of the Irish Ale yeast is that it doesn't kick so many esters.
However, it doesn't...

less strike water. A thicker mash shouldn't hurt anything in your recipe and will allow you to
get the same...

On my last CDA I cold steeped the Caraffa III and it was awesome. You get most of the color but
