You're welcome. I'll be over to your house next week to drink some of your beer!

By the way, I made this beer again last week (about 12 days ago, actually) I didn't have amber malt, so I used biscuit malt. I also used a bag for my hops to not clog up my shiny new diptube that lschiavo made and installed.

I sampled it yesterday- it's definitely not the same old recipe. It's less bitter, which I can attribute to the hops bag, and it's almost copper colored. It's more like an APA. I added the dryhops yesterday, and I think it'll be a good beer but definitely not as planned.

We used a hop bag and you said you liked ours. I guess I just dont want to believe it takes anything away (although common sense says it would). It make things too convienient.

I wil help you get back to the original. This one is too good to mess with!

Well, I just remembered that I way overshot my volume in this batch. That would explain the lack of bitterness, I guess. Remember, I ended up with about 6.5 gallons in the fermenter? But I also got 77% efficiency, so I didn't sweat it. That would explain the flavor changes, though!

Finally put on the extract version of this a few days ago, and my clothes, hands, apartment still smell like hops, its fantastic. This was my first time using whole leaf hops and man, by the end of the boil it was a thick hop soup. I tried to whirlpool and let it settle before siphoning to the bucket, but no dice. Then I tried pouring it through a nylon bag, but it retained all the wort too. Finally got it all in and topped off to 5 gal, and wound up with a OG 1.064.
Im going to try this again in a few weeks, and was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to separate the hops/wort and the low OG?

Good to see a fellow Atlantic Canadian!

I used a grain bag when adding the hops. Allows you to take the hops out of the wort after the boil. Less mess.

I don't think that's that low, is it? Mine came out at 1.060, and finished at 1.017, and it was VERY tasty!

maybe this has been answered already but what is the advantage of the continuous hopping. could you get close to same results with doing normal hop additions. by the way this has been on the gas for a few days now, ill let you know how it comes out when i give it a try.

I've never done it traditionally- the recipe is a clone of DFH's 60, and one of the things they do is "continuous hopping". They have a device that does it, but I read that when he first started, he used one of those old football games to add the hops. You know, the football game that vibrated the people around? That's what he put the hops on to continually fall into the wort.

I know that some people have said they didn't have the patience to continuously hop, and added the hops in timed intervals. I didn't taste their beers to compare, though.
