  • Posted in thread: Am I being punished for treating WY3068 nicely? on 06-11-2016 at 12:01 PM
    I have not brewed a Hefe in sometime but the last time I did I used WLP300 (equivalent to
    Wyeast 3068) and I ended up with a very bland beer just as you have described.The only
    recommendation that I c...

    Last February I brewed a Westveletern 12 clone. I only yielded about 3.8 gallons due to a
    massive overflow during fermentation. In mid-March I bottled the beer in Belgian bomber bottles
    which I corked...

    Hi everyone - I am currently brewing my first Belgian Tripel. This is one of JZ's recipes. My
    brew day went pretty smooth, I was aiming for an OG of 1.081 and I achieved a 1.079. I made a
    1L yeast sta...

  • Posted in thread: Custom Size Fermenting Bucket? on 03-28-2014 at 04:58 PM
    Hi Everyone - I just bought a used mini-fridge to control fermentation temperature. My normal
    12" diameter 5 gallon fermentation bucket will only fit in the fridge if I rest 1/2 of the
    bucket on the "...

    Hi Everyone - Recently I was given a couple of cans of extract (Light & Wheat) from a friend
    who never got around to brewing. Being winter time I really didn't want to brew a Hefeweizen. I
    decided to ...

    SWild Brew Take 1: This past spring I took my first shot at brewing a wild ale. I took some
    left over 2nd runnings from a Hefewiezen put it in a jar and left it out on my deck for a
    couple of days. It...

    2 oz of Chinook at 60?!? Holy moley, that's a sharp bitterness! You can say that again!!! It's
    a real hop slap in the face but that is the way I like it. I have used 2 oz of Chinook in a lot
    of my IPA...

  • Posted in thread: Hop Schedule Question on 08-03-2013 at 03:28 AM
    Thanks for the response. I think the question that I am trying to ask is not if the overall
    bitterness will change but by changing the hop schedule can I achieve a more 3-dimensional hop

  • Posted in thread: Hop Schedule Question on 08-03-2013 at 01:43 AM
    Hi Everyone - I have question about hop schedules. When I brew IPA's I generally put in a
    generous amount of hops at distinct points in the boil, usually at 60, 30 & 15 minutes. I have
    noticed that al...

    Hi Henry - I think this recipe looks good. I just finished brewing an IPA that is really close
    your recipe, except in my recipe I had corn sugar where you have Vienna malt. My brew really
    dried out an...
