Posted in thread: Forbidden Fruit (3463) vs. Belgian wit (3944) Experiment on 06-19-2014 at 06:42 PM
Update 1:I kegged this batch on Sunday. The FG for both was 1.01 with starting gravity of
1.052. The forbidden fruit fermented a little faster, with a caveat. I did a 1.5L yeast starter
for Forbidden ...
Posted in thread: Dry hopping on 06-02-2014 at 06:02 PM
I haven't done much dry hopping, I was curious can you dry hop without any type of bag and
still save the yeast cake? Or does dry hopping without a bag pretty much kill any chance of
saving money and ...
Posted in thread: Forbidden Fruit (3463) vs. Belgian wit (3944) Experiment on 05-26-2014 at 01:52 PM
I just brewed a 10 gallon batch of wit on Saturday and pitched forbidden fruit in 5 gallons and
Belgian wit in the other. I figured I'd post the results of the experiment here and update when
I have t...
Posted in thread: Tips for incresing the fruitiness of a saison on 05-04-2014 at 03:11 PM
You should try a different yeast. I use white labs saison ale II. It has a good mix of fruity
and peppery notes. Also mine is at the bottom of the abv range for the style with no sugar
added. This wil...

I brewed a very simple Saison last year, (pilsner, wheat malt, a little vienna) 1 lb of sugar
(added near the end of fermentation) and hallertau hops. Mashed at 148 and using 3724.

Thanks to all that confirmed a 20lb + mash is possible with a similar set up. I will forgo
purchasing a false bottom and be sure to do water first. I now have a drain on my brew pot so
it makes it eas...

Water first worked well. I still may switch to a false bottom before I do 20lb again, but this

Thanks all. I'm going to give the bazooka screen another shot with a lot of grain. Back to
water first this time too.

Can a bazooka screen handle 15 lbs of grain in a 10 gallon cylinder cooler. I know the grain
will fit as I just did 20 lb, but the mash didn't drain, much less the sparge. It was not fun.
For full dis...
Posted in thread: Brewing beer for client gifts, what would be the best styles? on 12-23-2013 at 10:56 PM
I would recommend "light" beers. One thing I have learned by giving people my homebrew, I
always have those people that give you this when you say what kind of beer do you like, "I
