Posted in thread: Using non-bittering hops for bittering? on 09-13-2016 at 09:02 PM
There's a bit of debate as to whether or not cohumulone content is actually a significant
contributor to a "harsh bitterness". There are still many unidentified compounds in hops, and
we aren't totall...

The hop schedule looks pretty good for 3 gallons, although the flameout addition will result in
some hop aroma. If you're really trying to avoid front-palate hoppiness, I'd recommend moving
that up to...

I'm sure this beer would be great in bottles! Nice looking recipe. I'd recommend using an
online priming sugar calculator to get it carbonated to around 2 volumes, but daskin might have
a different ca...

with you ab...

I had a similar experience with wyeast 3711 French saison last spring. It was ridiculous.
Fermentation and off-gassing was visible in the bubbler for like 9 or 10 days, in that
consistent way you desc...

Yeast does a lot of work after it reaches FG in the fermenter. It will clean up after itself,
re-consuming acetaldehyde and DMS and a lot of the other nasties that contribute to off flavors
in beer. A...
Posted in thread: Making my first All Grain recipe - Mosaic APA on 02-28-2014 at 04:57 AM
IMHO, mosaic renders on the sweeter side of the hop spectrum, so if it were me I would lean on
the hops to cover some of the sweetness currently present in your malt bill. I think you'll
still get ple...

Most of the time I use a rack out of my oven set over the bucket. Works just fine. A cooling

Thanks for this! I picked up 4 oz of comet on sale at Farmhouse and was wondering what to do
