Posted in thread: Double DUBBLE - Belgian Dubbel - Please give feedback on 01-27-2016 at 05:37 PM
Dubbel's need 2 things in my mind: Special B, which you have already, and dark candy syrup. I
like D90 in Dubbels. A lb of it should do nicely, but 2 lbs would also work if you wanted more
of those fl...

I like 'em. I would be tempted to use the barley logo for malty beers and the hop logo for
hoppy beers. If I had to chose between the two, I'd go hop as well.

First of all a 1.111 OG stout is probably not going to get down to 1.020. Maybe its been done
before, but I would find that unlikely in most fermentations. I think you can always add in

Two different manufacturers. I cant seem to find where Firestone were made, but Cornelius were
made in Anoka Minnesota. I get a little bit nostalgic to think my Corny's lived out their paid

Wheat beers I like to drink 2.5 - 4 weeks from brew date. I find them to be exteremely quick

Echo the comments above about chilling soon before they overcarb and explode. Will take a bit
of time, but its a real possibility.Are you sharing any plastic equipment between wild beers
and non? I ha...

Looks like a pellicle to me. I usually see some bubbles near the surface in a bottle and
sometimes a yeast raft or two. Those do not look like yeast rafts IMO.

I had a fresh 12 pack of the blue Rebel Rider from SA this past summer. Great summer brew, went

A little off topic. But I was searching for a peach sour beer that I had bottle conditioning in
the cellar. Found a whole 12 pack of Dark Strongs made to this recipe that I thought was gone.
I was wor...
Posted in thread: Ball vs Pin on 01-11-2016 at 02:27 PM
Forgot about the pressure relief ring/valve on ball locks. Really nice feature IMO. I do
realize you can do the same with pin locks on removing the gas connection and depressing the
poppet valve. Conv...
