    I wouldn't dry hop so long. 3-5 days is ideal in my experience. Just like good tea, shorter
    time is better. If you want more hoppiness, use more hops. :)I also prefer Nottingham to US-05,
    but that's a...

  • Posted in thread: What are your contrarian/"unpopular" beer opinions? on 01-16-2017 at 07:30 PM
    DIPA's do not need to be crazy bitter. An IBU of about 60 - 65 is perfect(but a ton of hops at
    sub-isomerizing temps and dry hops are what a double should be part of that equation)I wonder
    if a signif...

  • Posted in thread: To Keg or Not to Keg on 01-15-2017 at 10:39 PM
    +1 to drinking more. :) I bottled for 3 years, moved to kegging and love it, but now I'm often
    brewing 11 gallons, kegging 5 and bottling the rest to share (or travel). Want to know my
    secret? I ferme...

  • Posted in thread: to batch or fly on 01-15-2017 at 02:29 PM
    I don't think that's an accurate characterization of how a fly sparge works, as when done
    correctly with appropriate gear the extract efficiency will assuredly be higher than batch
    sparging.Otoh, done...

    Sounds like a plan. It's on my list. I've got a bunch of 5L fermenters for 1-gallon batches so
    I can do these side-by-side things. I'll do a bigger mash and split it 3 ways. So, what's a
    good recipe f...

  • Posted in thread: Define Parti-gyle on 01-15-2017 at 02:27 AM
    Partigyle brewing is taking the first runnings from a mash and brewing one beer, then sparging
    out the grains / draining the remaining wort from the original mash and brewing a different
    beer from the...

  • Posted in thread: Anybody ever done the Randy Mosher "Simple Decoction"? on 01-15-2017 at 02:22 AM
    So you're saying the comparison should be about what would happen if you reduce some portion of
    the wort to introduce caramelization vs. doing nothing, instead of what the reduction does that
    can't be...

    Oops, sorry, missed the kegging comment. In that case, I'd certainly consider keg hopping, but
    it's worth trying both to see which you like. Keg hopping is usually fine for longer periods
    because you'...

  • Posted in thread: When to Dry Hop? on 01-15-2017 at 12:39 AM
    It gives you the ability to pull yeast and solids off before bottling so you don't have to
    worry about getting them in the bottle or keg. Plus, you can harvest yeast more easily. And
    it's way easier t...

  • Posted in thread: Anybody ever done the Randy Mosher "Simple Decoction"? on 01-15-2017 at 12:35 AM
    Hmmm... I'm still not seeing how that's "the exact same beer" when one of them has an extra
    addition of reduced wort and the other doesn't. They'll have different OGs. I still think it is
    a more fair ...
