  • Posted in thread: Beer to serve with flourless chocolate cake on 03-27-2014 at 04:18 PM
    I really enjoy bourbon, whisky, and scotch. Paired with a good chocolate and a cigar that is a
    good night. Something not suggested would be a smoked beer.Also Southern Tier's Mokah is a good
    chocolate...

  • Posted in thread: Need help with a beer recipe for SWMBO on 03-27-2014 at 01:54 PM
    I think it looks good as a base to start with. I would say you are somewhere between a dunkel
    and a porter. The Pearl malt is a good choice, any of the english base malts will help add some
    breadiness...

    You can get plenty of IBUs in just 15 minutes, you just have to be prepared to use 2-3x the
    hops. Even with sub 8% aa hops, getting to 60 IBU is easy.That percieved bitterness is why I
    still add a sma...

  • Posted in thread: Hop bursting VS. Continuous hopping on 03-14-2014 at 02:21 PM
    It depends on the style, but if I hop burst it would be on IPA, Pale ales, etc. I have done
    continuous hopping on 2 recipes that I had done multiple times before and found it hard to find
    a big differ...

  • Posted in thread: Russian Imperial Stout Hops on 03-14-2014 at 12:29 PM
    Just looking at it without knowing your grain bill or OG, I would say 6 oz of hops is a lot.
    You could get away with a lot less, maybe even do a 90 minute boil with half the hops. You are
    well over 10...

  • Posted in thread: How Much Honey is Too Much on 03-12-2014 at 06:14 PM
    This might be a bit much and really thin out the beer. Maybe 5-10% of the bill, plus you have
    the honey malt to, which will impart some flavor. Maybe just half a pound to 1/3 lb?

  • Posted in thread: thrown together ipa? on 03-12-2014 at 06:04 PM
    I think it will work well. With the maltiness from the Munich and somewhere around 50 IBUS it
    will be pretty balanced and full flavored, not just a big bitter hop bomb. If I changed
    anything it would ...

    I have had good results with the Wyeast on 3 separate occasions. It really needs a cold crash
    though, mine did not flocc well. I personally dont care that much so it didnt bother me.

  • Posted in thread: How to test and modify water on 03-12-2014 at 05:08 PM
    I actually contacted my water company by email, and in 2 days I had a 5 page pdf with
    everything I needed. I agree the online info has very little application to brewing, it is more
    about health conce...
