I'd try fermenting this at 68-70. That's where I seem to get bannana esters with the 3068. A lot of people subscribe to the Jamil 62F ferementation theory, but I tried this several times and it made...

In my experience, glacier is nothing like simcoe. Like Strave said, I don't think there is a good direct substitute. If I were trying to mimic it, I'd try a blend of crystal and amarillo.

Why won't my keg carb up?

I've been using the set-it-and-forget-it method forever with no problems (12.5 psi). A little over a week ago, I threw in a new keg of RIS and while it will push out the beer through the tap no...

Keep in mind, it is MFB Special Aromatic and is only 5L, unlike other aromatic malts which are like 17-25L.

Thoughts on this grain bill for an Imperial IPA

I've really been enjoying simple recipes lately. I've never much cared for the carmel-bomb, super sweet type IPA's, thus I avoid crystal malts when brewing IIPAs. This should put me around 6 srm. I'm...

I ended up cutting the amber malt to 8 oz; I'm glad I did. The wort has a nice orange tint to it. The amount of hop sludge in the kettle is ridiculous. It chills as we speak.

09 Dark Lord isn't anything like 08. 09, to me, is much thinner bodied and much hotter alcohol, and less complex than any other year I've had (have had 05, 07,08,09). Any other year of this beer I...
