Very well could be. Unfortunately if I've ever had that hop, it was in the HT I drank last

I had Heady Topper, Pliny and my own Citra DIPA last night. I hate to tell you guys this, but
that's not Citra in Heady Topper. Whoever said an NZ hop I think is onto something. NS, or

I made this about a year and half ago. Primary for a month, secondary for I believe 2 months.
At bottling I didn't add any additional yeast and it still carbed up within a month.I

Per Jamil's advice in BCS, I aimed for a start of 68 and slowly ramped up to 72 over a few days

Not sure if this is a glitch on their website or intentional but when I went to purchase an 8

Posted in thread: Wort Chiller Length on 01-07-2011 at 05:27 PM

Even if you spent $55, you are still getting about 27 22oz bottles. That breaks down to about
