Bottled this yesterday and poured myself a wee glass of flat beer. Seriously tasty stuff - like a citrusy Orval (with Cascade and Nelson hops). Definitely Brett going on in there, fruity funkiness...

I was asking whether it would keep 'certain' infections at bay. I am under the impression that a high amount of hops favours sacc over other yeasts (such as lacto - hence low hopping rates in...

I've yet to taste it since the pellicle formed but it smells distinctly like pineapple. My only hope is that the dry-hops do not fade too much. I'm going to bottle this weekend, it smells amazing....

I'd be quite pleased if it was brett - the alcohol level is around 9%. I think i'll bottle soon and drink quicky to enjoy at least some of them dry-hopped.

Taste is good, hoppy fruity and belgian...

Pellicle in Belgian IPA

I have a pellicle forming on my Belgian IPA - a dusty, bubbly pellicle. Not sure where it came from, nothing was deliberately added to the beer to wildify it.
Given the amount of hops used (200g+)...

Stoutmaskreplica - tart stout

I'm been swaying over sharing this recipe, as it is not very precise so would be difficult to recreate - but seeing as how my idea for the thing is that it will continually change with every...

I'm making one at the moment. Tasting a sample after 5 days dry hopping.
Used Dana hops bittering, cascade at end of boil and dry hopping with cascade and nelson. Using T58 yeast and also poured in...

I do brew in a bag with a very simple setup. I have 2 pots: 15 litres and 9 litres. I heat up my mash water to about 70C (usually 15 litres water to 5lbs grain). I put the Bag into one my fermenting...

Why don't you split the batch and add the 3728 to half - or maybe even a gallon? If it turns out well you can use the yeast cake on another batch.

I just put some blair's 3am into an imperial stout. Only a few drops and it has a nice chilli kick that creeps up one you - better thaan when i put nagas in the last time. Too much veggie-flavour...

Thanks kwingert that makes sense. I ended up bottling at 1.022 - it is very good. A bit cloying at the moment but when carbonated it should have a nice thick mouthfeel. The raspeberries and cherries...

I'm not sure but it does seem similar. I like to cook with very hot peppers - I'd rather use one habanero over a handful of other chillies in a recipe for this reason. One habanero gives a hell of a...

The dark DME and coopers stout can will work fine. It will just be very roasty that is all - but very roasty is good. When you bottle you can decide if you want to back-sweeten it but I wouldn't...

I made an imperial stout using the coopers stout can, 1kg dark dme and 1kg sugar as well. The sugar dried it out a bit much, but I think also the dark dme was very roasty bitter. It was nice, was for...

Looks like a good start to me - i used 3 nagas at the end of the boil and it was definitely one for the chili-heads. It did die down over time though, very spicy but nice and fruity too. Your plan...

It's down to 1.026 now and the temperature has increased due to fermentation of the fruit and extra sugar. I think this rise in temp is helping ferment the wort. We shall see what happens :) I'll...

Brett is added to Orval before bottling - apparently one or two bottles is enough for some brett funkiness to appear after a few months. Even more so after a year. Check out the Drnk Owl Mango recipe...

Because its fizzing and bubbling like a fizzy bubbly thing, I get a faceful of CO2 when I take a peak and the hydro reading is coming down ever so slightly.

So it's been slowly fizzing away with no change in gravity. Tasted more - smoked malt and grains make it taste slightly tanniny, but should be nice when carbed and it all comes together. Added some...

Took a taste today. Very grainy. As in there are small particles of grain floating in it. Combined with the hops floating on the top I think these are leading to an incorrect hydro reading. It's been...
