Posted in thread: hop burst- vs hopstand/whirlpool. what's the consensus? on 07-23-2015 at 03:10 AM
I'm constantly experimenting. I'll typically do 10/5/0, with the 0 min addition about 50% of my
hop bill, if not more. 30 minute whirlpool, I've found diminishing returns after 30.
Personally, I prefe...

Posted in thread: Tripel finish too low? on 07-11-2015 at 03:15 AM
It's a little low by style guidelines, but who cares? I had one finish about 1.004, over 10%
abv, and it was great.
Posted in thread: Least "Spicey-Peppery" Saison Yeast? on 07-11-2015 at 03:00 AM
I'd say pitch a large amount of yeast and oxygenate heavily to cut down on Esther production,
also ferment cool. 3711 is pretty clean in those conditions. Personally I'd pass on the
raspberry too. 566...

If you're worried about O2, just dry hop at about day 7, or when there is still some active
fermentation. That will help scrub some of the O2 out of the beer. I just tried this fir the
first time and ...

I brewed this recipe up yesterday. I loosely based it on bobbrews recipe. I know it's a bit
over the top, but hopefully it's not too over the top. I used Conan yeast because I want to use
it in my nex...
Posted in thread: Souring a Saison - 1st Time With Sours on 06-23-2015 at 02:33 AM
You won't get very sour with Brett alone, if at all. If you want 25 ibu, try to find a
commercial sour beer with 25 ibu and try to harvest that. I've soured a 35 ibu beer with jester
king dregs. If yo...

Most Pales go Brew Day, 6 days later add 2oz of hops loose into the bucket, by day 11 I am
racking normally into a purged keg. That keg goes right into the kegerator with 30PSI to chill
down. 12 hours...
