Asking for open minds, opinions, new ideas.

Thinking 1-3 BBL fermenters and the flavor given by their shapes and timing.

I do 4 weeks primaries and I'm curious as to why not to do this with...

Cold press the coffee and add it at bottling. Pull a sample before bottling and try to figure out a ratio of how much to add for the flavor you are going for.

Here's what I did: I added the cubes and bourbon together to the batch. However I was worried about over oaking and having the oak and whiskey flavor being to intense. I pulled 1 gallon off the batch...

I think it is because IPAs are not only popular but really fun to brew. Honestly. With lagers you are pushing for clean flavors and light tastes. With IPA you can push boundaries and get crazy with...

I've thought about using a strainer or paint strainer, but heard(urban legend?) that the beer passing through the holes in the strainer or bag could cause oxidation. Really not certain about this but...

Borders around your text blocks and image blocks would make them pop and stand out against the background a little better. Keep it from looking muddled.

Blending the two left pics together into one image would be incredible with the detail and hard lines. Or just reverse the top and bottom and see how you like it before blending.

I really hate to be pedantic on this but I can name numerous beers on the commercial market that have won awards that I still don't like because they are overly bitter and not enough hops.

My experience is that since the FWH amounts to less bittering and more smoothness in flavor it is sometimes beneficial to add a small amount at 60min. for a little bite. I brewed a IIPA at 9% with...

Pellets and cold crashing work really well. You can also cold condition your beer in the fridge. After it is done carbing leave it in the fridge for a week. Should come out perfect.

I rework my FWH until it is almost similar to my 60min. The FWH gives a much smoother and more flavorful add. I only add at most a .25 at 60min just to give a small bite of bittering.

I've never gotten a cone but I still whirlpool and let it sit for 30min. I use a big whisk with a ball inside for stirring. I figure if nothing else I am at least oxygenating the wort.

Perle/Cascade/willamette did not play well together at all in a ESB I made last year. Believe it was mostly the Perle since I like the cascade and willamette mix in my other beers.

You generally need to up the amounts since a FWH is closer to a 20min add in IBUs. I'd also recommend a dry hop for the aroma

Personally I like the chocolate and roasted barley to be pretty close in amounts but I love the coffee and dark chocolate flavors in a stout. Looks pretty good though.
