  • My first beer was with Blue Ribbon malt, Red Star yeast, and table sugar. My buddy said to put the whole bag in (5 lbs) so I did. No hops. Boiled it for about half an hour and put it in a bucket. We made a simple airlock from a length of plastic tubing running from the lid into a jar of water. After three days, he came over to my house where it was fermenting, and said, "I think we are supposed to stir it." I had no idea, so I got it and set it on the carpet. After about three swishes, it foamed up like a volcano. It looked worse than it was; mostly air. We didn't lose much. Then he said, "Maybe we weren't supposed to stir it."
    Anyway, the beer came out 14% according to a hydrometer. A little fruit juice glass would get you loopy.

    I used an ounce at 30 and another ounce at 10. The flavor and aroma are citrusy and have some
    tropical fruit/melon elements. It is much different than typical piney Cascade like impressions

    I did an all belma pale with 2 oz hopstand at 150ish. There was almost no aroma in the finished
    beer. Belma is entirely useless as an aroma hop IMO, unless you want to use a pound per batch.
    I like it...

    Agreed. There must be cheaper ways to ship a single pound of hops. Or maybe that's the point:
    people see that shipping doesn't increase very much with the addition of a second (or third)
    pound, so the...

    At 11 days in the bottle, the head dissipates quickly, but great flavor, color and aroma!

    If its commonly accepted that you want to have the yeast slurry be the same temp as the beer
    when you pitch it (ie, letting the start warm up outside the fridge while you brew), then why
    is it that mo...

    To revisit my thread, I decided to do nothing. My beer actually turned out really nice. This
    recipe was a belgian dubbel and only asked for 2 oz of hops total. I think I will enter this
    beer into a ho...

    I brew nearly every week. I miss one every now and then, so I would conservatively estimate I
    brew 40 times a year; up to 48. I don't keep exact gallon figures, but always shoot for five.
    That puts me...

    Thanks for the workaround. Good enough! Somehow, through trial and error, I got everything into
    my last batch, but it took a lot of attempts.I like the new version. Keep up the good work!
