  • Posted in thread: Recipe Critique - Dos Cerebros IPA on 03-03-2010 at 05:16 AM
    I am working on a new IPA recipe and I'm curious to hear any feedback before the brew. I think
    it will be tasty as is, however, I always learn new things when people critique my recipes.
    Thanks!Dos Ce...

    Once you get a good system, and get comfortable with it, you almost always hit your
    efficiency.The number itself doesn't really matter. In my case, I get 72%. That's fine, because
    I can make any recip...

    You are dangerously close to that 20% mark for Crystals, and are using some low attenuating
    yeast. As long as you want a very sweet APA, then you have a beer that should have good head
    retention. You ...

    1. It is perfectly acceptable for you to just leave the mash sitting there without mixing or
    recirculating for an hour. The more your cooler is open, the more heat you are going to lose.
    But it isn't ...

    Also, as Pompeii said, stir the grain bed very well when doughing in. You want the grain and
    water to be thoroughly mixed, and the grain thoroughly wetted, and to ensure the temperature is
    uniform thr...

    One thing I notice already... "gently mix the mash w/ a spoon" I beat the hell out of my mash
    after I put it in, you want NO doughballs or areas where water isn't fully saturating the
    grains to get th...

    It really depends on lots of factors...including how much head retention you want and how many
    hops are in the recipe, what AA value, etc.5% sounds fine for a standard beer, but if you
    posted the reci...

    I am working on a new all-grain IBA recipe for a 10 gallon batch. I've never brewed an IBA, so
    I would love to hear any feedback from those more knowledgeable and experienced than myself.
    Thank you in...

    I have a quick question:When using CaraPils/Dextrin malt in a 10-gallon batch of all-grain ale,
    what percentage of the grain bill should be allotted?Side notes:- I am using this malt strictly
    for incr...

    I have been brewing all-grain for a couple years now. After a multitude of batches - spent
    learning and experimenting - I have reached the point where I am ready to gain understanding
    and insight into...
