    Overall, I'd declare it a success. I stuck pretty close to the recipe in the OP. Used rice
    flakes instead of rice and table sugar instead of beet sugar. But other than that just followed
    along. I was ...

    What brewery was this?This was Beerworks in Boston. Right across the street from Fenway. It was
    on tap there as "Bambino"

    My goal is a fairly easy to drink IPA, bordering on a Pale, no caustic hops, in the vein of a
    Founders All Day. Leaning towards the First Wort on the Simcoe to mellow the acrid but pull the
    flavor (an...

    I see no problem with re-pitching at this point. But... you might also give it some time. If
    the pack swelled after you smacked it, then that's an indication that you do have viable yeast.
    Also, not s...

    My first question is do you have the right equipment to do a 7 gallon batch? That's going to be
    pushing the limit of your standard carboys or ale pails that are usually geared for a 5 gallon
    batch. Yo...

    Is this just further evidence to suggest that fermenting in an Ale Pail is a much safter/better
    way to go than using a carboy??

    (I always rack to secondary) One other thing you may want to re-consider... After reading the
    advice of many of the elders on this board, I've done away with racking to a secondary - even
    when I'm dry...

    +1 on just ditching the carboy and going with an Ale Pail. Glad you weren't injured.

    I'm curious what your set up is - Ale Pail? Carboy? How much head space? I've been using an Ale
    Pail with just your basic bubbler on top and have never had an issue.

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopping to improve a recipe? on 12-28-2014 at 05:53 PM
    I have a recipe that I'm in love with that is almost all late addition hops and uses .5oz
    Simcoe and .5 oz Centennial for dry hopping. The only early addition hops on this recipe is .25
    oz of Magnum a...
