    Do you by chance know the exact yeast you used? I always try to hit the lower end of a
    fermentation range. I'm sure your beer is fine just might have a little hint of flavors from
    fermenting at a bit ...

    What temp did you mash at? Your FG is a little low. Look up infected beer on here and there are
    plenty of photos. How it's OK.

  • Posted in thread: Session IPA Mash Temps? on 10-28-2014 at 04:40 AM
    I'm just curious. What is everyone's strategy for mash temps on Session IPA's? I've always
    mashed at 150-152. Curious if I'm in the norm or if I should adjust higher or lower. Anyone
    care to share the...

    Yea I usually pull mine out after 5 days. There really isn't a need to go any longer. I also
    usually dry hop with 4 ounces so I think you will be just fine waiting 5 days.

    I recently purchased this one and am using a Johnson Controller to keep my temps where I want
    them. If you search around you can easily find a 10% off coupon as well.

    I would check out Alesmith and St Archer as well. They are both right next to each other in
    Miramar. Green Flash isn't far away either.The new(er) Ballast in Little Italy is awesome as
    well. They are ...

    What amount of hops did you use? I love hops and it took it took me sometime to realize how
    many hops to use in a batch for my liking.Have you made this batch before and the hops were
    more upfront?

    To answer the fermentation temp question, I think 65 is a good choice. I use 002 in most of my
    American styles and I usually pitch at 62 and ferment around 65, then raise to finish. This
    keeps the est...

    What kind of yeast are you using?I have never seen a vigorous starter. I use either Cali or
    English strains of ale yeast and mostly just have bubbles here and there. Are you using a stir
    plate? Swirli...
