  • Posted in thread: Anyone Use Kolsch Yeast For IPA?? on 08-28-2016 at 07:09 AM
    I'm on a kolsch kick lately and I think I'm going to big it up and do an IPA version.
    Traditional ingredients, just 2 Row and about 5% vienna to 6.5% abv, with a heavy dose of late
    addition hallertaue...

    Looks good to me too. It will be a strong one given 3711's 90% attenuation. Small suggestion...
    maybe replace 5-8% of your grain bill with table sugar to increase perceived dryness. 3711
    comes across ...

    Well my 3724 wheat beer has been in primary for 28 days and I'm still only at 83% attenuation
    (1.043-1.007). Its a bit of a p.i.t.a. I did include 8% oats in the grist but I would have
    expected it to ...

    Yes, it would and some black patent will have the same effect as will a drop or 2 of Sinamar.
    Add SRM and you are adding red. This is inherent in the shape of the absorbtion spectrum: more
    light is tr...

    I find an ounce or two of black patent with a healthy dose of Munich malt helps redden a beer.
    Course, my example was a raspberry saison, so it was sorta pinkish to begin with. Any time I go
    with dark...

    I've left a batch cooling post-boil on the basement floor overnight to get it down a few more
    degrees, but that's after all the nasties have been killed off. I think there might be a chance
    of getting...

    I've never had a saison in my life but grabbed a smack pack of 3711 at the lhbs and made what I
    think is a saison-like beer. It is...interesting, to say the least. Been on CO2 for about 5
    days now so ...

  • Posted in thread: Question on Chilling with an Immersion Chiller on 08-20-2016 at 05:04 PM
    I have an above ground water supply for the next few weeks due to utility upgrades on my
    street. Our groundwater is always very cold, but I can't get below 85F right now. It sucks.
    I've been chilling ...
