So I brewed an English IPA and when I transferred it to secondary I was really happy with the

Posted in thread: burning boils off 1 gal/45min on 12-03-2011 at 11:15 PM
My new burner typically boils off a gallon in about 45 minutes. Is it okay to just do a shorter

it will ge...

Thanks :) lowered profiles would probably work well with this beer anyway. I'll pitch it today,

We didn't change any methods or equiptment from past batches. Syphoned into out keg and held it
at 30psi for about 24 hours. Then brought it down to about 8psi before pouring.We use a picnic

I brewed an APA and it turned out fantastic, the only thing is I have to leave about 1psi in
