  • Started with an all-extract kit for my first one, did two batches of extract + steeping, and then 20 some partial mash batches. All grain finally came in! Having done PMs for a couple years, it was only new equipment that took some getting used to. I use a 10gallon Rubbermaid beverage cooler outfitted with a stainless false bottom.

    However I can't imagine yeast cell walls are infinite sponges. Simply increasing the hop charge
    should negate thisI would agree. I'll just say from personal experience, this made a big
    difference in m...

    Makes sense does it not? The hop and beer infusion will be more effective without the
    yeast.Electrostatically the hop compounds and yeast cells have opposite charges and therefore
    will bind to each ot...

    I had issues with IPAs losing their hop aroma far too quickly as well. After reading Vinnie
    Cilurzo's 2 page dry hopping section in Sam Calagione's 2006 Extreme Brewing, I determined my
    problem was ye...

    I can vouch that batches with blow-off do not lessen attenuation. It is a sign of a very
    healthy fermentation. I'd say 60-75% of my batches blow-off. Every batch I brew gets a tube
    into a tub of water...

    Thanks! You could brew a 1 gallon rye IPA recipe. If you wanted to go simple and compare it to
    something you know, take your favorite IPA recipe, and substitute 15-20% rye for your base
    malt. I like t...

    This is an easy one for me. Florida Beer Swamp Ape Double IPA. Saw it when visiting family in
    Flordia about a year ago. Thought oh a local dIPA this has to be at least decent. It was
    &$&-ing terrible....

    anni brew and a rye IPA a buddy and I are splitting. The black IPA is using Midnight wheat and

  • Posted in thread: Brewed a beer with rosemary more than once? on 06-13-2015 at 02:46 AM
    Good idea, I'll have to pick up a stout similar to something I would brew and then rosemary
    that. I love to chew on fresh rosemary while in the garden. It would kind of be like dry
    hopping with a very...
