    Gotcha. This is basically your first year right? Have you’ve done things like invite Chamber
    Commerce/News/Visitors Center/etc for meet and greets/Grand Opening? This should spin some
    other opportunit...

    I meant a flyer highlighting the larger margin since you self distribute. Unless everyone is
    picking up on that right away.

    Almost forgot, someone asked me if I had a brewery and I do NOT. Sorry if my post appeared that
    way. That said, I own a small business and spent a large part of my life in bands so I know a
    thing or t...

    If your water is very low alkalinity, you'll be fine, but if not, the results are disastrous.
    With my water (90ppm alkalinity) I have to acidify sparge or final pH ends up too high. Beer is
    "flat/tubb...

    I am in for this one. I know I sound like an ass but setting a brewery up and licensing is the
    easy part to me. Trying to get to the local taps, staying out of the red, and remain in
    business is the h...

    Thanks. Seems like each forum has their own spin on these techniques... I also agree that
    hopbursting and hopstanding taste differently. I prefer the latter in my brews. Even with hop
    extract, I think...

    You mean hop bursting with whirlpool?Yes, I think. I don't really recall the exact differences
    in bursting/standing/whirlpool. But the point is to rely on late (less than 15m) or hopstand
    (post boil) ...

    Never had a HF beers and only skimmed the thread but I see no mentioned skipping bitterness
    additions and relying on late/whirlpool hops for IBU. Definitely softer mouthfeel.

  • Posted in thread: No Flavor from Flavor Hop Additions on 05-27-2015 at 07:53 PM
    Personally, I prefer hop stands at the higher temps >185F. I do account for bitterness
    though... I think hotter favors flavor and cooler, aroma. pH is a big player too. Not an issue
    with distilled, bu...

    I defer to the above comments that the report is suspect but, for a rock and roll approach
    :rockin: I will stick to the basics as I just skimmed the other thread. Firstly, you need
    campden treatment t...
