I would think it should be. Try it. Worse that happens is a "sore stomach" for a day or two. Then you can warn off the rest of us who might try it later.

I didn't mean to chase you off. If I did? I can help with the numbers if you have a recipe. I just really think the best way to solve this is by adjusting your efficiency expectations.

Sounds good. Amarillo are some good hops. I've used them a couple times. Very citrusy, like cascade, but a little more like orange than grapefruit, in my opinion anyway.

I've been thinking about this one while reviewing John Palmers book. The software you are using assumes a certain percentage of overall efficiency. I think what you should try for your next recipe is...

Can't help with yeast question, I've never used those strains, sorry. But pounds of sugar should be added during the boil or at flame-out while the water is still hot enough to dissolve them. And as...

Congrats! You have plenty of time. I've found that it's rare that 2 people get the same or most enjoyment out of the same thing, let alone 3 or more. I would brew 3 or 4 kinds of beer that cover a...

If you lager it real good and slow, and thorough, it would be ready right around September/October which would make it as traditional as you could. Don't sweat it! Take your time and enjoy!

Sounds like you are using a lot of water. Maybe just try to cut it back some? Your numbers are fairly close so you could really just relax and enjoy it.

Ales seem to do. Best at, or just below room temps. Your yeast packet should tell you the ideal temp for that strain. But generally anything roughly 65 to 75 should work fine.

Sounds like a good brew! Did you have any of the issues with the fruit that you were worried about? I have yet to use fruit in a beer, but have been curious.
