    In order to hit the gravity on this recipe I think you need to be pretty good with your process
    with such a high OG. I was proud to only miss by 8 pts. Still the best recipe I ever made

    If you are doing BIAB, toss in your hops when you pull your bag and start to raise the temp to
    boil. Should give you a similar effect.

    Note that I only did the fwh and flameout additions. I should have been more specific.I was
    just going to suggest the same. Try to scale back the EKG/Citra ratio a little in the FWH to
    like 1oz EKG FW...

    +1 for WLP002 for me. Although I plan on giving WLP004 a try on my next one.

    Subscribed.This is the best session IPA I've ever had. Amazing flavor for such a small beer.

    Before my switch to AG I brewed 4 extract brews, two of which were kits. The two that weren't
    kits ended up to be far superior brews. Then, when I realized that I was spending less $$ by
    coming onto t...

    I'm 2 weeks into fermenting a saison that I brewed with fresh grated ginger (1.65 oz added @ 5
    mins). I took the gravity reading today and it is approaching its FG, and it has promise, but
    man it is l...

    It's true, that what is done is done. However, to give you some hope, I'll tell you that I've
    personally only fermented this yeast outside of its temp sweet spot. I make a black IPA that
    gets locked i...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter Stirplate Question on 08-22-2014 at 03:06 AM
    It's simple. After the starter is fully fermented and chilled, the yeast will compact nicely on
    the bottom of your flask. Slowly pour the starter beer out and stop when you start to see the
    yeast come...

    The two schools of thought is...1) pitch at high krausen for least lag time when you pitch it
    into your wort, or 2) wait for the starter to fully ferment then chill, decant, and pitch just
    the yeastie...
