Thanks for the replies guys. For those of you using a hop spider, do you feel it has any effect on the hop flavor/aroma on your beer?

How are you all filtering your hops?

Hey guys,

I have a Kal clone system that I really enjoy, with one exception, and that is the filtering of the hops out of the wort when I'm draining my boil kettle. I have a hop stopper, and it...

Hey mnoltimier, are you still using the hop stopper? I've got nearly the same setup, and the hop stopper is the only piece I wish I could change. Working on finding a solution for that now...

I've recently gone from the washing method to no-wash method. I think I will stick with the no-wash method. I made 6 beers from one package of wyeast, and noticed no off-flavors, infections, etc. ...

BigPerm, thanks for the tip on "No Star-san" in the barrel.

So it seems I'm hearing I can store it with whiskey/bourbon, dry (i thought the staves would shrink and this is bad?), or with citric...

I'm not sure about when it was dumped, but it does have a fill date of 8/13/2013 on it.

Does the quality of the bourbon/whiskey matter all that much? The Kirkland stuff from costco is pretty...

Hey guys,

I stumbled upon a great deal on a 5gal whiskey barrel tonight. Don't know much about them except that beer that ages in them usually tastes amazing.

Just looking for some general...

Missed OG, add sugar?

Hey everyone,

Brewed a DIPA friday night and missed my OG by about 6 points. Probably rushed the sparge, not really sure. Anyway, if I were to boil some corn sugar in a small amount of water,...

I guess I thought that since the infection was separated from the yeast by beer, I'd be ok... Everything smelled fine.

Oh well, I have a back up packet of dry yeast to use for tonight.

If you've had the real thing, its not all that dry. Hence the british ale yeast... you want some slight sweetness there to compliment the citra.

Not really familiar with Myrcenary, but I think a DIPA should have a little bit more hops. Use the Horizion for bittering only, and I don't really think the Perle will fit here, or add anything, but...
