    Thanks! I think I'll try that this time around(or the next). I have a downstairs bathroom with
    a tub that's never used. It stays pretty cool down there all day too. Sounds like if I do that
    a day or t...

    Coldcrashing helps in settling down the beer. I don't use gelatin or anything to clear my
    beers, only coldcrash and it is very effective but alas, not perfect. It is an easy step if you
    have the space...

    my personal tastes says that's not overly sweet. anything above that does start to get on the
    sweet side, for sure. the other question is how well are you carbonating them? are you using a
    priming cal...

    if that's the case, then the fix isn't necessarily to add sugar. like others have said you
    could just as easily just mash lower. another approach if it's too sweet is to bump up the IBUs
    slightly more...

    The sugar is fine. The ~10% sugar would more be used in a DIPA with a OG in the 1.080-1.090
    range, likely a 1.064 IPA would be dry enough. (or you could mash lower.) If you want it real
    dry then go fo...

    Drop the sugar.Why you say? I put the sugar in there to lower the FG.

    Hello, How does this recipe look for a 7% IPA.I have been building RO water to Ca-145, Cl-44,
    SO4-342, 1 ml Lactic acid in the mash and spargeI am considering changing the water build, to
    Ca-96, Cl-22...

    Cold crash in a tub of Ice water.

    If its an extract brew, there isn't really any reason to check the OG, unless you didn't follow
    the recipe or didn't add enough top up water, there isn't really anything to go wrong that
    would cause y...

    I'm in AZ too. I store my fresh brews in a spare bedroom that varies between 78-82 degrees for
    the first 10-14 days after I bottle them.No bombs yet !After I've tried several and determined
    they are "...
