  • Posted in thread: Chances of infection? on 02-01-2015 at 12:51 PM
    As DocScott said it could and the only way to know for sure is to wait and see. I have done
    similar thing in the past and I've yet to have an infected beer from it. If it's easy to do you
    could remove...

    But what do you think about the hop times? And using Columbus for flavouring and
    aroma?60/20/15/5/0 ... it's fine IMHO though a little more complex than I'd personally do
    :)Columbus for flavoring and ...

    Second batch - did a Drakes IPA clone.Could you post (or link to) the recipe?

  • Posted in thread: Beer recipe okay? on 01-10-2015 at 02:52 PM
    That seems like a really high bitterness ratio to me. this link indicates around 0.8ish for
    American IPA. If you upped the OG you could keep the same hop profile and have an Imperial IPA.
    Then again, ...

    If you'd like to use Vienna and White Wheat you could do a minimash.Brewtoad seems to indicate
    you'd end up getting around 1.084 with an IBU of 52 (0.61).Are you going for a specific style
    or brewing ...

    Awesome, thanks for the tips!

    My first sour, a Flanders Red style beer, has about 8 months under it's belt and I'd like to
    start measuring and tasting. However, it has a pellicle and I've never had to work with one of
    these before...

    That's part of the fun of learning what different hop varieties (with different AA's) offer in
    beer...and how you taste them. For me I noticed Citra has a smoother result than chinook or
    simcoe which ...

    1. You'll probably be fine. Straight from the tap water to top up before and had no I'll effecs
    (but boiling and cooling is highly recommend!).2. Don't worry. Once you have a batch or two
    under your b...

    I guess a kolsch yeast might be a good attempt. While I've not tried this I've been told going
    into the lower 60's upper 50's gives a much cleaner profile. However, I don't know if it will
    be as clean...
