Looks great!. If it were me, I'd go 10% Vienna (or Munich...I prefer Munich, but either is great) and 5% wheat. 5% wheat with a 155 mash temp will give you plenty of mouthfeel, and I'd rather have...

They are designed for negative pressure. Positive pressure breaks the seal pretty easily.

I use them for storing hops and specialty grain instead.

BoPils. Still hoppy, but different hoppy.

Also, Pale Ales with clean, crisp hop presence, but not in your face. Easy drinking. Maris Otter + Munich + CaraMalt + 002 + simple hops all added late.

Proverbs 25:2 ESV
It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.

Among many other things, I believe this applies to beer.

Nope, no issues.


With hops, yes, I agree gelatin does strip out some character, but I find it strips some of the harsher character and leaves the delicious citrus/pine aromas. If you love throat...

I don't want a CFL bulb anywhere near my beer. Or anything I ingest for that matter.

I find 20-30 mins of warm steeping time is plenty sufficient.

I drop to 160ish quick, add the hops, then slow the chiller to a trickle. The temp drops slowly to ~90 or so over the next 20-30 mins....

I'd only use S-04 if you can keep the fermentation temp under 64F. Any higher and it gets nasty fruity to me.

Using a higher-kilned base malt will reduce the clove/phenol characteristics and allow other flavors (i.e., banana/fruit) to take the forefront. Also consider varying your pitch rate.

Oh, cool. That's not much at all; shouldn't really affect it that much. My bet is on your fermentation temperature and/or yeast health (what yeast? did you pitch enough?)
