  • Posted in thread: Looking for a change in IPA yeast-ideas? on 05-08-2015 at 05:59 PM
    German ale yeast or 1007 makes a great clean tasting beer. Ferment between 55 and 60 degrees.
    It's low flocculating yeast though, so careful racking/cold crashing are recommended.

    I am brewing a clone of Short's Good Human's Dry-hopped Double Brown Ale, and I am also brewing
    a pretty standard APA with no crystal and a third of the bill pilsner and about 8% victory
    malt. I am lo...

    Thanks for the advice I'll give the RO water and acidulated malt a shot. Hopefully all turns
    out well in a few months down the road when warmer weather started to hit and I have real lager
    to drink th...

    I plan on brewing a German pilsner with 100% german pilsner malt, 9lbs. I plan on buying
    distilled water and building it from scratch. I've never done a beer this pale or with 100%
    base malt. Any idea...

  • Posted in thread: Favorite Hop Schedule for IPAs? on 03-07-2015 at 07:46 AM
    For IPA I usually do a 60/10/5/flameout/hopstand for 30 mins./dry hop and or keg hop. Great
    flavor and aroma from this scedule. Use a simple grain bill and mash low.

  • Posted in thread: Looking to purchase bottles similar to 750ml Goose Island bottles on 02-25-2015 at 09:10 PM
    Jolly pumpkin bottles take a regular cap and are thick and 750 mL. We throw lots in the
    recycling every day at work. You just have to get them before the homeless guys pick through
    the recycling.

    Cut out all grains and sugar, except for beer of course, and cut out dairy as well. Eat healthy
    fat and grass fed meat. Lots of veg but not potatoes. Fruit occasionally. Works wonders even
    without wor...

  • Posted in thread: Funky beer lover correlation to mushroom lovers? on 02-08-2015 at 02:47 AM
    Not a big fan of funky or sour beers, but mushrooms are one of my favorite foods and flavors.
    Maybe a drunken rambling, or maybe I'm the exception to the rule.

    Skinny dipping, skinny skiing, and going to bullfights on acid.
