Sinimar or Maltoferm would probably be your best bet. They're pure color extracts and around 3000L (compared to ~500L for black malt) so you only need a tiny bit.

Lactic acid bacteria make much more than just lactic acid during fermentation. You'd be missing out on all the esters and phenols that compliment the flavor.

The one exception IMO is fruit beer....

Darn, I was in denial but mine are grassy too. I grabbed a pound of Amarillo leaf from Hops Direct so it must be the same crop.

Getting krausen but no fermentation

This one seems to have stumped readers on another forum so I figured I'd ask here.

I brewed a Vienna lager last Sunday and pitched 2 packs of rehydrated 34/70 at about 48-49F. By Thursday the temp...

In my opinion it's more in the malt profile. West coast IPAs tend to be bone dry with very little malt character whereas east coast IPAs (think Dogfish Head 90 minute) tend to have a bit more malt...

The one in my dropdown is a winner. It's based pretty heavily on the recipe in Brewing Classic Styles.

I boil them for about 10 minutes, change the water, and boil them again. I'm not usually looking for a big oak character and this seems to get rid of a lot of the oak tannin harshness.

Well if you're diluting it, the whole purpose is to make it thinner so If that's going to be a problem then don't dilute it. Your IBUs will take about a 20% hit though.

Bourbon, oak, and flavor extraction

I have a barleywine in primary right now that I think I want to add some bourbon soaked oak to. About 6 months ago I threw an ounce of French oak cubes into a mason jar with 4oz of bourbon (Larceny)...

I love Tettnanger, it's such an under appreciated hop. Super fruity like an American hop but it still has that herbal European quality to it.

Well speaking as a bourbon drinker, Makers Mark is pretty smooth and neutral as far as bourbons go so that's probably why you see it in a lot of recipes.

To my palette Citra really shines as an aroma/dry hop. I've done a Citra single hop beer and, while it had an amazing sweet tropical mango aroma, the flavor and bittering were severely lacking.

Personally I'd go with something like WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast for a high gravity IPA. It will attenuate better and let the hop flavors stand out more.
