I experimented once with hop stand / no dry hop and can report that the aroma was very lacking

Should be a good IPA. I just did an IPA with NS, Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy. Served it at a party
and was gone in 2 hours. Had comments it was the best, smoothest IPA they've had. I used 2 oz
of NS at F...

Made a 500 ml starter for secondary fermentation of a wit beer. After 6 months it's gone from
1012 to 1004. Despite what I've heard that it is lackluster for secondary, I disagree. The wit

Looks like a nice recipe. I've used 565 a few times (coincidentally I'm brewing with it today)

I have a Flanders Red that I pitched a year ago with WLP665 Flemish Ale blend (supposed to be
similar to Roselare). I'm going to transfer it onto cherries pretty soon. When I initially
pitched a year ...

Try adding the roasted grains after mashing, prior to sparge. I've had great success with this
method, resulting in less acrid taste and improved flavor. Also, I grind my roasted grains

I have used this strain a few times with same frustration. It is a very lazy yeast! Just keep
shaking/swirling that krausen back down a few times a day. It will keep going, so don't sweat
it! Great re...
