I would use fresh cherries, local if you can find them. 3lbs should be enough but to get the most aroma you will need to leave them in the fermenter the shortest amount of time you can. I add fruit...

The answer to your question is in the name of the beer you like. Outburst IPA is most likely a pun on the hop burst technique. If you really like that beer, I'd suggest using the same technique for...

I mash all my starter wort. DME is too expensive for my broke college !%%. Is it a little more labor intensive? Sure, but not that much. I make a large batch of 1.040 wort, boil for 15 mins to...

I've used it on a APA and was pretty happy with it. I thought the esters it produced when fermented at 72F were pretty subtle in the presence of the hop flavor and aroma. It produced a moderately dry...

I'd be concerned with loosing some of the peach aroma if the beer was left unbottled.

You should leave the beer in the fermentation chamber until its finished. I know that sounds douchey but that's how you do it.

I usually dry hop 5-10 days depending on the hop and what I'm going for. Dry hopping won't add bitterness to the beer unless you leave some of the hop material in the beer.

The temperature you pitch at is going to impact how fast a beer takes off. I usually have a lag of about 4-8 hours with wlp500 but I pitch at 72F. Whatever temp you pitch at, you want to get the...

What yeast is it? Some yeast strains produce esters that are the same as apples. Personally, I would kill to get my hands on a yeast that consistently produced these esters.

Pilsner malt produces more dimethyl sulfide than other base malts and is why most brewers suggest a 90 boil when using them. This allows the compound to be evaporated off and is why the previous...

There's no way to figure this out that I'm aware of. Sure you can guess but it's just a guess and it could be way off. For this reason, I use a microscope.

If you cold crash an ale you will most likely halt fermentation and retain any unfermented sugars resulting in a sweeter beer. If you warm the beer back up, the yeast will likely begin to ferment...

I've used Glacier hops a lot. So far, I've been really disappointed. In one blonde ale I added 2oz at 8 min and dry hopped with 2oz and the resulting beer had only faint hop aroma. This hop has...

I'm not familiar with that yeast but my best guess is this is a result of pitching too much yeast. Was this a 5 gallon batch and did you only pitch one pack of yeast?
