  • Posted in thread: What do you think about WLP 007? on 07-30-2014 at 03:20 PM
    I attempted a Stone Levitation clone--got some diacetyl, but probably underpitched (don't know
    how fresh the vial was, it seemed kind of clumped together & took about 24 hr. to start). It's
    supposed t...

    doublehaul-usually in decoctions you remove the thick part of the mash & bring it to a boil.
    usually around a third of the volume, but that should be calculated from temperatures.

    I agree that 10% sounds a little heavy on the wheat, but if you like that, go for it.
    Generally, all-grain brews don't need much help in head-retention, depending on yeast strain &
    mash temperature.

    Sir-Hops-a-Lot: why not just mash higher, say 156? It will convert faster & you won't have to
    add malto-dextrin. I like a dryer beer myself.

    "green" apple is usually associated with acetaldehyde, which is unlikely if it's been sitting
    for a year.Also, I don't think you can judge carbonation (assuming you used priming sugar) in
    one day--IME...

  • Posted in thread: English Ales - What's your favorite recipe? on 07-08-2014 at 12:09 PM
    I don't know about quintessential-it's a big country-but at least in London & surrounding
    areas, they drink a lot of bitter in the pubs. So some variation of bitter-ordinary, special or
    strong (esb). ...

    Hard to tell 100% from a photo, but I don't think it looks bad.

    I'm not sure you'd even need yeast nutrient for making cider, unless you're adding a bunch of

  • Posted in thread: All Hop Shot IPA on 07-02-2014 at 04:09 PM
    Might be more of an APA--I think some "hop shot" formulations suggest 1 ml = 10 IBU in 5
    gallons of 1.050 wort: I'd give it a try.

    I don't think you could get botulism, due to the alcohol presence (not the boiling, which
    doesn't kill spores).
