Well, I might as well post mine as well. Mine is slightly darker although it's hard to tell
exactly since the Heady sample is about 6 months old so it's crystal clear. Notice in the
second picture how...

I guess I forgot to tell him that Conan does best at cooler temps (60-62). His brew is one
week in and he said the yeast kicked ass, but the beer tastes like peach. Not a little peach, a
ton of peach...

Question....and I know it's almost sacrilege.....but has anyone let a can of Heady sit for a
few weeks and carefully pour it like you would with a bottle conditioned beer? If so, is it
clearer than a...

Just a follow-up on my latest attempt. My first tasting after 10 days in primary was pretty
spot on..very exciting. Might have been a little less bitter, and maybe slightly less citrusy,
but really cl...

I didn't notice the sweetness in Heady until I started trying to clone it. My first attempts

I haven't run any numbers in beersmith, but what about less pearl and a longer boil to get to
the SRM and more sugar to get the ABV up and dry out the beer.I'm only half following this
thread so maybe...

Longer boil would give you more carmelization and a higher SRM.Might be a moot point though
since Beersmith puts 100% Pearl with 148 mash yielding 1.070 OG and using yeast with 79%
attenuation at 8.0%...

Interesting to me because he has a few opportunities to mention other malts or use the plural
form when talking about them, but only refers to one malt.True. I read a review a while back
where the aut...

Someone with better eyes than me, John Kimmich tweeted out some more photos of the cannery

Hmmm, never thought of honey malt.On my first attempt using it a few tries ago, I knew I wanted
some sweetness and avoided everyone's cautioning not to overdo it. I went with a half pound.
THAT was ov...
