    foam on top...then today I opened the cooler to find this...(sorry it was kinda hard to get a

    Just wanted to say I think this recipe is awesome. I brewed it following the directions
    exactly. I ended up needing the fermentor before there was room in my kegs so I racked this and
    let it sit for a...

    I made a starter for my latest IPA using washed US-05 yeast from a previous batch.I noticed the
    olive smell, dumped the yeast in anyway, then realized that perhaps I had made a mistake, which

    Brewed this today. I hit the 1.052 target spot on despite forgetting it's a 90 minute boil and
    doing the standard 60. Probably not a big deal but only time will tell. I'll do my best to
    remember to po...

    It turns out all the gunk in the beer was not a bad omen. I tried a sample today after one day
    on gas and it's FANTASTIC. I love it when a beer is this good before it's even carbed.Going to

    Is it normal to have a bunch of tan looking material floating around in the boil? I tried to
    sift most of it out but it still has alot in it. Maybe someone else has answered you, I haven't
    read the wh...

    I find this 101f temperature fermentation fascinating. Every Saison I've tried has fallen

    Maybe I could up my game if there is a good homebrew club in nova? I see Alexandria and
    Woodbridge posters on this page of the thread. I'm in falls church near Annandale. Any

    Nice job! No medal for my Belgian Strong Dark but I'm looking forward to some truly objective
    criticism when the score sheets arrive.

    I entered my first competition beer, a Belgian strong dark I make as a Christmas present to my
    friends each year. If it places i will get to modify the label, so I've been refreshing their
