I brewed a couple 5 gallon batches of beer for a summer party we're throwing in August. I have
an IPA and a Saison - both around 7% ABV. To give them a little extra summer flavor, I decided
to add fru...
Posted in thread: is it always better to add sugar a day or 2 later? on 06-03-2016 at 12:41 PM
I've done it both ways with success. The theory is that if you add a large sugar addition
early, the yeast will selectively choose to ferment the simple sugars first, and the
fermentation may stall ou...

Looks like this yeast is a beast. Brewed this 2 weeks ago, OG was 1.070. Kept it at 66-68 for
the first 5 days, then ramped it up a degree or two every other day. It's now sitting at 76-78.

Brewed this yesterday. Wanted to do a step mash starting at 148 and stepping up to 154. My step
only made it up to about 150 though, so it was mashed pretty low. Efficiency was on par with
what I usua...

I decided to go with the WLP670. Decided to throw the dregs from a bottle of Jolly Pumpkin Oro
de Calabaza in the starter. I also have a bottle of Jester King Mad Meg that I think I'll save
for brew d...

Haven't been to any of the breweries so I can't comment on the tours/facilities. But as for the
beer itself, of the three listed above, I would rank them 1.Buffalo Bayou > 2.Karbach > 3.St

Thanks for the input. I think I'll keep it simple and go with the WLP670. After reading a lot
of reviews, I think it should at least get me close to what I'm envisioning and everyone seems
to like the...

Actually thinking the Dupont strain might be better - should leave a little more behind for the
Brett to work on in secondary. Also, which brett strain would work best for this? I used the
Trois in a ...

I'm planning on making a Brett saison soon, something similar to Boulevard's Saison Brett. Will
go with a simple grain bill - mostly Belgian pils and wheat - then do late/dry hopping with
some Nelson ...
