I'm not sure I would dry hop a california common but most of the homebrewed examples I have are nowhere near as hoppy as (fresh) Anchor Steam.

W68 (Wyeast 3068 or White Labs 300) gives the most of any yeast I have used. Isoamyl acetate increases with increased glucose in the wort. There are some German Wheat beer mashing techniques meant to...

Both is best. I like to limit dry hopping to limit grassiness and have moved to rather large flameout additions over the years. The trick is to keep the wort hot with the flameout addition in it for...

It is nice. I built one once for like $60 in parts and about 6 hours of standing around home depot trying to find what I needed and putting it together (I am not that handy). Then after 18 months the...

I'd guess based on the information that it is sodium percarbonate and sodium meta-silicate or similar. Basically oxy-clean + "tsp" where "tsp" is meta-silicate and not actually tsp as in the red...

For Oakland I had to cancel well after the last date for a refund. There were still people on the waiting list and I still got a refund.

So my guess is that despite the published policy, there...

I gave a brewer from Boulevard crap the other day because I know they use a lot of Simcoe for bittering. It's a great bittering hop of course, just rare. I just made an all Citra IPA to serve at a...

No, sparging with cold water works about as well as sparging with hot water. I think sparging under the tap is extremely problematic but the temperature of the water is not the problem.

We have around 50 empty bottles at the end of every homebrew club meeting and 800-1000 at the end of our competition. Many to most of these get recycled because there aren't enough people interested...

It was 3 years ago. It wasn't an exact clone of PtE (it had northern brewer hops added) and the next in line wasn't brewed, they simply put 3 each of the other two winners in the six pack. The beer...

If you are trying to get closer to what Vinnie is doing now, why not replace the bittering hops with hop extract (Northern Brewer sells it as HopShot)?

As for Simcoe, I bought 2 lbs from FreshHops...

1600 yen for a 750 of Fantome is a great deal relative to the fact that a pint of normal gravity craft beer is 1300 yen.

Yen for dollar, that is close to what they go for in the US.
