    Thanks for the reply foltster. I think I'll try the 10 minute(ish) mash. Do you remember off
    hand if your efficiency strayed from normal, and what your OG and FG were using this technique?
    Your notes ...

    And my opinion, while I really like it, S-04 is better suited to browns and english beers where
    a more prominent malt character is desired.I've done a couple 10g IPA batches, and fermented a
    carboy ea...

    A bit of simple sugar is totally acceptable in a big IIPA. With no sugar and a mash temp of
    154+, a 1.090 beer would be cloying. My best beer to date has been a 1.076 IIPA mashed at 152,
    with half a p...

    Hey Rubes - I've had this beer at Gambrinus here in London, ON, and at the brew pub in the
    distillery district - albeit quite a while ago now.As I recall, it was a really nice beer, an

    Hey RyboFlav,I'm up in London and have had both of these brews. I've also been to the brewery -
    you're right, nice fellow, but not very forthcoming with his ingredients! My favourite beer
    they do is t...

    I'm in! These things look sweet! I just brewed a Weiss and the krausen gunk won't come off the
    top iof the carboy. This would be perfect!

  • Posted in thread: Tropical DIPA on 05-13-2011 at 10:58 AM
    I made the one below a couple months ago - and it was all tropical fruit. I was quite happy
    with the malt bill - nice 6.2srm colour (though was actually a bit darker w 90min boil and all
    those hops) a...

    Easy - an IPA!Don't know what your efficiency or hop's alphas are... but I would guess this
    would be delicious... malty body with some nice citrus hops... Target 1.065 OGYour 7 Lbs of

    Yeah - I noticed that he posted the recipe up there after I'd written mine. I think the version
    I had was V3... looks like he likes to change his recipes up as he goes along (like us!). I
    seem to reca...
