I've always added honey right before flameout (1 to 2 minutes). I've found this to be the best for me.

I've pitched one vial straight into a beer before I knew about making starters. The beer turned out pretty good, but the lag was scary. I thought my yeast was dead.

Thanks for the input, I'll drop the crystal a bit. I really wanted to keep the color a bit darker, but I don't want the flavor of the hops to suffer.

Do you want any roasty notes in the beer? If not try midnight wheat. It will add a LOT of dark color without any flavor to speak of. I love the stuff.

As said above, it depends how much roast you want in the IPA. I like a little roasty background. I went this route and it was a big hit with my friends. If you want almost no roast, go with midnight...

I could crash about 48 hours before I keg. 24 hours is probably good enough though. Don't worry about the yeast though, you won't ever be able to remove all the yeast with just a cold crash. You...

The batch sparge process is typically so fast you don't need to mash out. I typically just use 170 degree sparge water. I've had no issues to date.

Good question. To me, it's still my recipe. I spent hard work and time coming up with it. It's a lot different then just copying a recipe off the site and giving it a new name.

I like to start my fermentation a bit warmer than 66 so the yeast kick off fast, then I let the temp cool down to 65-66 and leave it there for the 3-4 weeks I wait until I keg.
