    Has anyone heard anything about this? Did I just lose a bottle?I just got a call today. The guy
    sounded upbeat in the VM he left, but I haven't spoken to anyone yet. And after reading this
    thread I'm ...

    I very much want a "grapefruity" IPA, but can not get Simcoe in my area. Can anyone recommend
    alternatives?I got fresh simcoe hops from should be able to as well. I just brewed an

    I never had DIPA left over on my nightstand.

    Actually, there really is no sub for the piney notes of Simcoe. I recenty was told that Sam
    Calagione from Dogfish bought them all up. Might not be available for a while.

    Made this a while ago (6/2010) and it came out great, although it was not the same. Mine was

    Ardennes th...

    Like the title says, 48 - 72 hours. Some take less. Any more than 72 is usually not a good

    The other thing is, my wife is a little obsessed with turning the heat up and down and I rarely

    experienc...

    Actually, now that I read this (thanks Clonefarmer), I realize that it all started when I began
    getting lazy and batch sparging. Here is what clued me in. I will try going back to my old
    method. Maybe...

  • Posted in thread: All Grain - Off flavors on 02-05-2011 at 09:35 PM
    I have been brewing for like 3 or 4 years. I quickly made the move from partial and extract to
    all grain as I am (or was) a culinary professional and felt that using extracts was kind of
