    Haven't made any adjustments just yet. At this point it screams out grape soda. Has a purple
    grape flavor going on. Like a freezey pop. Any idea what causes this? Trying to get a clue as
    to how to han...

    I have a ton of this stuff. I could dump it back into a fermenter. I don't really want to
    dedicate a bucket to sours since I don't really do them but the $60 I have into this thing is
    more than the pr...

    I did this batch back in March. Work got busy and I sort of forgot about this one. Realized in
    June what I had done and figured I was bound to be infected. Decided to just keep letting it
    ride at that...

    Brewed on 1/18. Efficiency was poor. Ended up at 1.060 post boil. Had some issues draining the
    mash tun even with a pound of hulls. Ended up moving it into a nylon sack which i think hurt me

    This style is, technically, an ale. "Bock" designation does not necessarily mean a lager. It's
    just a tax bracket used to classify higher abv beers. This style uses hefe yeast and is known
    for spice a...

    I'm not opposed to decoctions, step mashes, etc. I tend to use Northern Brewer. Due to it's
    lineage it's similar to noble hops but with more alpha acid which provides a better value for

    I've tried aging my hoppy beers longer as of late. It seems like it takes at least 4 weeks for
    nice hop flavors to emerge.

    Looks good. Not a fan of Simcoe in general and I don't think it would be beneficial in this
    style. I would consider another fruitball hop like Amarillo. If you're set on Simcoe then I'd
    consider bumpi...

    Brewed this rendition about a six weeks ago and it's now properly aged and ready. C120/SpecB
    was replaced with all Simpson's C150 for the total amount of 1.5#. I figured this would be
    safer than playi...
