Chinook & Simcoe APA

Turned out very very nice! Mine is pretty hop forward with the mosaic hops and added hopstand, but still nicely balanced by the malt. At 5% abv it's extremely drinkable while still satisfying my need...

Keg hopping question

Do any of you keg dry hoppers add the hops at room temp then chill the keg with the dry hops still in it? I always pull my hop bag out before chilling the keg but am wondering what kind of results...

I calculated it as a 1.076 5.5 gallon batch using a new Wyeast pack, and intermittent shaking method since I don't have a stirplate. Both Mr. Malty and YeastCalc show I need a 2.6L starter, but I...

I checked the Mr. Malty calculator and I'll need a 3L starter for my upcoming brew with an OG of 1.076. I have a 1 gallon glass jug for my starters. Is it alright to pitch 1 Wyeast pack into 3L of...

Hop stand

I just brewed a pale ale today with the only hop additions at FWH, 5 min, and flameout, with a 45 minute hopstand between 180F-140F. Should be bursting with hoppy goodness.

I also plan on dry...

Looks great. Think ill give it a shot tomorrow. Might add more to the flameout addition and a short hopstand for a little hop boost. Thanks for sharing!

I meant 14B, American IPA, whoops! The hop profile is citrusy, fruity, and slightly piney, definitely a hop bomb and possibly my best brew ever.

Cool, that's what I was hoping for. Should I enter it under the same brew name? I don't want the judges to dock it in the IPA category because they know it has rye in it from the category 23 entry.
