    Did a dry hop with 4 oz of caliente in a 5 gallon batch of black ipa and got a mild
    sambucca/uzo flavor up front with a cherry finish. Not much aroma coming from it for the amount
    I used. I'm guessing...

    I recently keg hopped my IPA with 2 oz of centennial not knowing that the hops were oxidized. I
    went to work for 12 hours and came back to get a drink and the beer was horrible. The taste was
    like car...

    My DIPA started at 1.077 and finished at 1.020. I dry hopped it and the aroma and flavor are

    small yeast star...

    I had a 55 lb bag of milled 2 row that was in a hot garage for about a year and brewed 4
    batches with it (5 gallon each). The only thing I lost was mash efficiency (60%), so I just
    added more grain th...

  • Posted in thread: How long do crushed grains hold up on 07-03-2012 at 08:03 PM
    My crushed grains have been sitting in a garage in Florida for about a year. I brewed last
    month and the beer came out with no problems.

  • Posted in thread: Great improvement in efficiency. on 05-10-2012 at 07:51 PM
    I wonder which method of sparging would be best to get the most yield?

  • Posted in thread: "I'm broke / leftover ingredients" recipe ideas wanted on 05-08-2012 at 06:32 PM
    Go for it, but add more hops. You got a nice IPA there. I made something similar to that and
    was happy with the outcome.

    That's a bummer man. If it was a glass carboy, that's a MAJOR bummer. That's one of my bugaboos
    during transferring.
