1 ounce of warrior, depending on the rest of the recipe, must be very harsh. I've seen them at
15-17% AAUs, which would be enough to feel like it's stripping enamel off of my teeth in some
cases, FWH ...
Posted in thread: Reusing dry hops in the next batch for bittering on 05-28-2016 at 02:57 PM
I do recycle my hops as I call it when dry hopping. I typically just freeze it to use as a
bittering on something, but I have found out a couple of things regarding this. Firstly, I only
use whole lea...

For some grist profiles, the minerals alone done pull the mash down far enough (usually lighter

Given the amounts of Gypsum and CaCl added to that water volume, the levels of SO4 and Cl
shouldn't be excessive for a pale ale. But might be a little high for some Belgian styles. The

I would mash this at higher temp next time (154-156). I made one similar with this. I used 2
Row. One dry hopping. I'd move most of the hops on flame out and do whirlpool. V2 soon!

Can't be the hops. That's why I did a first wort hopping to reduce the how harsh the bitterness
is. One example is 1oz of Warrior as First Wort then 5 and 0 mins Mosaic for aroma.

gypsum and 5.5 of CaCl2 on a 10-11 gallons batch all of that with RO water.I used the same
profile on an IP...

Read and listen to all lot of people. Anything before 10mins seems to be a lost cause when it
comes to aroma. I'd do half of that at 5mins and the other half at end of the boil. Even that
might be a l...
