I mash with pumpkin as well, and although it doesn't contribute to the gravity, I find that it provides some mouth feel to the final product. I don't care about getting flavor from the pumpkin itself...

Saaz do have a light grassy aroma and taste to them. There's certainly the possibility that they are causing this. At the same time however high fermentation temps can give you all sorts of off...

I prefer glass because I like to be able to observe what's happening without exposing my beer to o2, the ease of sanitizing, and longevity factors. Plus call me crazy but I like to avoid plastic as...

I have used 05 many times and for me, I would get the peach from it when fermenting in the low 60s. It wasn't necessarily a bad flavor, but it did seem to take over the beer. I find 05 to be at its...

Before bed, drink half of a bottle of pedialyte. Drink the other half in the morning after waking up. Then, go on a 3 mile run. Water afterwards, and likely a Bloody Mary some time that day.

Hard to tell from the picture if it's mold or some kinda wild yeast, like eastoak said. I'd let it roll for a little til you can figure it out. My guess would be wild yeast from the hops, but if...

There could be several possibilities as far as I can see, the biggest being that the beer is incredibly young for a stout (or for any beer if it isn't carbed yet). There will be major changes once...

I now clear nearly all of my beers with gelatin, and I've noticed that they have a much cleaner character to them than before. It might be in my head, but I'm gonna roll with it regardless.

I understand your logic here, but even if the OP is looking for a strong malt backbone, the original grain bill still looks a bit "busy" to me. As he pointed out, he meant to have munich instead of...

I agree with the guys above. It sort of depends on what you're going for here, but if you are wanting the hops to shine, I'd simplify the grain bill as much as you can. If this is the case, I'd...

I've made spray from the juice of three to four jalapenos in a gallon of water, with a little dish soap so it sticks. After spraying once every few days, bugs stopped eating my plants. Just don't...

I would do the Chinook at 60, Columbus at 30, big citra addition at flame out, and a huge Columbus dry hop. But that's just my preference. I think I started drooling while typing this.

I read this post a week or two back and decided to give this a whirl. I grabbed a few cream ales from an NC brewery. I dry hopped one with Tettnang and the other with Saaz- purposely choosing hops...

The setup was that once your pint was pulled, you'd get a small stainless tea infuser ball with leaf hops in it. I just let it sit in my glass for nearly the whole time. Beforehand the IPA was...

That is interesting to me too. I just went to a brew pub where you could personally dry hop your pint and a chinook dry hop gave a boost of flavor to an otherwise boring IPA. I did a before and...

You could use nottingham in the low 60s for your cream ale, and for just about anything else for that matter. It'll come out very clean and turnaround time will be quick. I don't like notty much...

I've seen a lot of people ragging on them, usually because they are just tired of them. I got away from them for a year or so, but fell in love with them again.

I wouldn't worry about it yet. I'd carb it up and wait until it's truly done to see how it came out. I say that because I've gotten odd smells from hydro samples with English yeasts and the beers...

Personally I'd love columbus in an amber, but it does have a very strong, hoppy flavor that may not sit well with your friends who don't like IPAs. An ounce at 10 min is gonna carry a good bit of...

I'd mix them with some of the centennial or columbus you have on hand, but that's just my preference - I tend to steer clear from total fruit bombs.
