Hop Additions

There are lots of ways to approach hop additions, and I am not familiar with this strategy. I've never used it. However, I had a few questions in my mind on this..

The long flame-out sit times,...

Water pH

Agreed. If you are mashing, you need to consider the relative alkalinity of your mash water and your resultant mash pH. If you get above/below the 5.2-5.6 range, you can get some additional flavors...

I'm not familiar with the cloned beer, but I would say it all looks good. However, I usually see Pearle used as bittering hops, and Willamette as the late kettle addition. It should work either...

I've been staring at some milk thistle on the local hiking trail for a few years now, hoping to someday try it in a batch.

Just wanted to point out that there are varying opinions on using honey post boil. :D

I for one add honey during the whirlpool, when the temp gets down to 130F or so. I like a little heat to help...

C hops

Great hops!

Lots of combos, but I would think Centennial for bittering, Cascades for flavor, and flame out with Citra for some awesome aroma!

Mash low, and ferment with a clean yeast like...

fruity hops

Using US-05 at low temps like that should make for a clean fermentation. So that is not the issue.

I would say that you are definitely tasting the results of all the late hops in the boil, mostly...

Gasing beer

Yes, you want to be sure that the pressure in the keg is not greater than what the CO2 regulator is giving you, if the keg is on its side. It could force beer up the gas tubing, into the regulator...

Honey Blonde

I just finished a honey blonde and it came out really well using honey post boil only, and carbing by normal methods.

IMHO, if you want honey flavor, just add 1# honey per 5-gallons of beer, in...

Honey additions

Honey is a natural low-moisture content substance which gives very little for bacteria, yeast, etc. to grow on. So, for the most part, it is pretty safe to add post boil. I would never add honey...

Yarrow recipes

Sounds like a successful adventure into yarrow! I am curious to know how much yarrow you used at both steps, and whether it was dried or fresh cut from your garden? Also, how big was the batch?
