  • Posted in thread: Secondary Fermentation - To Rack or Not to Rack on 04-20-2014 at 05:41 PM
    I have been racking to secondary since I started homebrewing several years ago, with only one
    infection (and I am fairly sure it was not the secondary). Probably starting next batch I will
    be ditching...

    They may just be my favorite brewery. IPAs usually arn't my first choice but I do really like
    this one. I love the Vienna lager and the Turbo Cougar blonde bock.Yeah..not a huge fan of the
    Vienna styl...

    I had a few parts on hand but somehow broke the damned computer fan when I was fooling around
    with it. Everything was already soldered in place too. So I had to spend an extra $12 on a new
    fan and cut...

    Been thinking about doing this myself. I will probably go with some cheap vodka. Not that any
    very small amount of any spirit will necessarily be evident in your beer (if it somehow got

    My brother brewed a beer and added blueberries in the secondary. Had some similar problems. To
    me, they don't much (good) flavor to anything...cept pancakes

    Used Horizon for a bittering hop in an APA and it was a really nice clean bittering. Never used
    it as a flavor/aroma addition.

    Thanks for the tip on the UnionJack Clone Stone. Looked it up and the 145F to 155F mash step is
    an interesting technique. I would like to try that sometime. Unfortunately right now I use a
    converted c...

    I have been a little underwhelmed by their IPA, but its not bad by any stretch. May try to pick
    some up fresh soon. My office just moved 5 minutes away from their Outpost Brewery in
    Lexington.Let us k...

    I think I have a base recipe. Holidays are coming up so malt profile is very similar to SN
    Celebration. Never brewed a Black IPA so added a little bit of Carafa....going for a good
    holiday IPA with so...

    I think I have read that Galaxy/Simcoe is a good comboI think I am looking for a fruity bomb on
    the nose with this one...not sure what hops to use where and what hop to bitter with. After
    more researc...
