    Man this thing is ripping. Pitched about 200B cells from a vitality starter at 62F and started
    to let ramp to room temp. Once stabilized at 66F I stuck it in my 55F basement and just let it
    free rise....

    Hey dj, I noticed you mentioned that this yeast produces a strong sulfur smell earlier in the
    thread. This is the first time I've had a yeast that smells this bad. Its permeating the whole
    kitchen and...

    I was going to say the same thing about the hops, but based on the recipe and planned FG, it
    looks like the plan is for this to be more of a malty beer with high IBUs. I think you will get
    a lot of ma...

    One of my early beers was this Wookey Jack clone: can attest that aimless is correct in that
    it calls for all Amarillo and Citra. Since I could not find Citra at the time of brewing I went
    with Amari...

  • Posted in thread: Best place to order hops? on 01-10-2017 at 04:18 PM
    I only buy hops from farmhouse brewing supply and yakima valley. Doesn't mean those are the
    only good places but I can't beat the quality/quantity to price anywhere else. Those $5/lb
    deals at yakima v...

    Your making feel more easy about this brew.I got the idea for the grain /sugar from The Bruery
    Mischief. I'm the changing the hop charge and profile fairly substantially and using a
    different yeast.

    I'd usually do all Pils too, but I'm trying to only use what I have on hand. It will certainly
    have the I use of an IPA , but this will be heavy on the Belgian yeast heavy flavor profile,
    hopefully. I...

    Bump for visibility.My fear with this recipe is that the hops will royally clash with the yeast
    flavor. But on the flip side, I love trying new things. I'll probably just go for it, but if
    anyone has ...

    Looking for a recipe critique for a hoppy beligian beer I'm thinking about. All ingredients are
    old leftovers I have that are reaching a year old (hops included). I'm looking to brew this for
    3 main r...

    Already done. They're in my basement (which is cooler) now.It was 90F yesterday and my neighbor
    must have thought I was a weirdo walking outside with my giant Carhartt jacket, leather gloves
    and a fac...
