I don't know if that'd be worth the effort.

There are all sorts of variables at play here - the ambient temperature around the fridge, how many times you open/close the fridge door, the volume of air vs. thermal mass of cold kegs in the fridge...

Thanks for all the help! I was originially planning on golden promise malt, but my LHBS doesn't carry it. And I think I'll stick to 4 oz of the peated malt.

Every now and then when I'm in an ornery mood I'll deliberately do that just to see if I can get in an argument - "no, I don't want a tall cup, I want a small cup - that should the smallest cup you...

That's a good point. I brewed a similar recipe last year (but lost the actual recipe so I'm going from memory). One thing of which I'm sure is that the peated malt was 4 oz and I wanted a bit more...

the Tannin flavor will mellow out somewhat with time, but this batch will probably never be one of your best. stick to the 150-155 range next time and you'll notice the improvement. also make sure...

OK, just one thing to add about BB's. I aerate my wort by shaking the BB on the bottom corner, and I've never had one break. personally, I just don't see how glass is worth the risk. I know that risk...

With a OG over 1.060, it becomes harder and harder for the yeast to thrive in the wort. So given the fact that you underpitched combined with the high OG, I'd say that 1.024 is going to be about as...

I'd leave it for a while. You're better off erring on the side of leaving it on the yeast cake too long than racking it too soon. It may take quite some time for the fermentation to end, and...

+1 on the T and the circle - it actualy makes the process easier becuase you don't need to put a cap on the far end of the braid. And it gives you very even coverage throughout the bottom area of the...

I do agree that the graphs are bogus. I think they're more of an illustration of some general ideas than a representation of actual data. But a 7 minute addition does make sense to me for the reasons...

I was going off of the chart that kingbrian linked to. I'm looking for anything that can maximize the aroma. between the FWH and the 7 min addition, I should be pretty good.

OK, that sounds like good advice to me. So I think this is what I'll go with (although the all-FWH idea is an interesting one also):

8 oz Crystal 20
1 lb light DMe

Congratulations!
One other thing to try is letting it chill for 48 hours before drinking it, it'll have a cleaner appearance and a less yeasty flavor. If you're first beer was this good at this age...

So, when you FWH, do you leave the hops in after the lautering is done and through the boil? if so, then I would think that all of the AA's would get isomerized, whether during the lautering or the...

Thanks for the feedback, I think I'll take the crystal down to 1/2 lb and replace that with some more MO. I think the grain bill was the problem with some of my other IPA's. I actually had one recipe...

The last one is in the fridge right now! I don't know why I didn't think of that. IIRC there are instructions somewhere in the forums for stepping up from such a small sample size to a full starter.
