Thanks for the advice, I guess next brew will be more of an American IPA.

I have an ounce of Williamette sitting there idle in the freezer. Would that be a good dry-hop to match with the EKG?

Why is it that every store I start to like goes downhill?

First it was NB getting rid of flat-rate shipping.

Had my first Heady Topper

After many months I finally got my hands on a Heady Topper. Let me start by saying I am not a big IPA fan, with Harpoon and Goose Island being my favorite, but I will often pass on IPA all together....

I have always hated IPAs for basically the same reason as OP but this year I got into Harpoon's IPA. It has more of a malt profile (yet still bitter) and the pine/grapefruit/resin doesn't stand out....

Sam Adams is a good beer for the transition from macrobrew to micro brew. If it weren't for Sam Adams I doubt craft beer would be what it is today. I'd rather have a S.A. than a Bud/Miller/Coors,...

Tried it last night, I know most people on here will like this beer, but I don't. It does have a good malt backbone but the overwhelming usage of Centennial made a for a very oil/resiny mouth-feel....

Sam Adams seems to have changed their recipe in the past few years. It used to be my favorite, now all I get is a super dose of Crystal 120 that makes it syrupy. Anyone else notice this?

Thanks for the reply!

I've never worked with a yeast that slows down like that, most yeasts I work with I am dealing with blow-off and krausen clogging the tube, so this one threw me a curveball.

Only an initial reading (1.053), I hate popping the lid unless I absolutely have to as I am paranoid about risking an infection. If it stops all activity I wouldn't hesitate to do a reading though.

Redhook bottles (12oz, but smaller height wise than a standard bottle) are my favorite as they are small and can easily fit in places cans can fit in the fridge.
