  • Posted in thread: American Pale Ale with Saison yeast? on 09-11-2014 at 05:58 PM
    I've experimented with Belgo IPAs a bunch over the last few years and this is what I have found
    best suits my taste:1) When using a saison yeast, use a clean bittering hop and move the flavor

    I have been using this yeast with some regularity at higher temps (one batch easily fermented
    at 80 consistently for a week) and haven't noticed any off flavors or fusels. Seems to be very
    clean. Este...

    To be honest, the mix of Amarillo, Goldings, and Willy just doesn't seem like it'd be great.
    Maybe keep the Amarillo and switch out the others for more American hops like Simcoe, or a "C"
    hop...or bot...

    I brew Belgian IPA's on the reg as they are my very favorite.Here's what I've discovered that I
    like best:BU:GU_1.00-1.15 with most of the IBU's coming from hop-bursting w/ a smaller amount
    of cleaner...

    What are those eyeball lookin' things?

  • Posted in thread: Necessity of yeast starter? on 03-31-2011 at 01:50 AM
    I know that making starters is the right thing to do, but I've only done it a limited amount of
    times and it hasn't helped much of anything. Most of the "stuck fermentations" I had when first

  • Posted in thread: Nelson Sauvin hops--where to buy?!?! on 03-31-2011 at 01:22 AM
    I use these all the time, but they're pretty much out for now from what I understand. I buy a
    bunch every time they're released, but haven't found any in a few months.

    Specialty malts- Special B 5%, Biscuit 3%, Aromatic 3%. The rest was a 50/50 split between
    Pilsen and 2-Row. Decided NOT to do extract this go around. My buddy did pretty much the same
    recipe but with...

    After two weeks in the bottle, this is pretty awesome. Nice phelonic yeast character and super
    dry attenuation make for a nice Belgian-inspired IIPA. FG: 1.010. 3711 has really boosted the
    hop flavor ...

    I made a Chipotle Ale with and it didn't really "die down" per se, but it kind of got a little
    smoother after a year or so. Not much help I know, but I think you're kind of stuck with that
    nice burned...
