Will be brewing my first batch of Austin Homebrew Supply's AHS New Zealand Rye IPA today. There were no reviews on the website yet for this kit so I guess I am the test dummy. It looks like it is going to be an awesome IPA. 3 kinds of hops: Pacific Jade, Pacifica, and Nelson Sauvin. I will keep everyone updated for the next 6 weeks, I am going to do the ole' 1-2-3, one week primary, two weeks secondary (dry hop w/ Nelson) and 3+ weeks in the bottle.

Anyone made a similar beer? Have any input or advise.

I am doing the same brew but I ordered the AG version.. I am leaving it in the primary for three weeks then dry hopping in secondary for ten days.. I would at least let the brew sit in primary longer than one week. I have had it in primary so far for two weeks.

Dilligans,
What are the benefits to leaving it in the Primary longer if your going dry hop in a Secondary anyways? I have heard of not even doing a Secondary a lot lately but when you dry hop you don't really have a choice. I have always thought once the fermentation stalls which should be between 5 and 14 days you can switch to a Secondary....Love to hear what your take on this is. Thanks for the reply!!!

Hope your AG is tasty cant wait to hear.

~Joe

A longer primary helps the yeast clean itself up.

I used to always rack my brew to secondary after about a week.. I still did the same for about 3 months after joining homebrew talk. I made a post a few monts back that leavign beer in the primary is for the lazy. I was wrong and probally pissed a lot of people on this site off.. I decided to try leaving my brew in the primary for more then a week. I made a basic Ipa that I make all the time and instead of leaving it primary for a week and racking it. I left my beer in primary for three weeks. When I came time to keg I racked it and noticed it was clear and did not need to be age. It tasted great just needed carbonation..

Just try it. I do still secondary when I am making ales that need to age for a few monts and I personally dont leave my brew in primary more than four weeks but I know brewers like REVVY only use primary. At first I was negitave about it but now convinced.... Just try it.. dont even open up your fermenter until three weeks it up... If your not convinced read the John Palmer Post.

All right, Its in the primary bubbling away, I ended up adding too much water at the end, think that will cause any issues? I am only about 2 inches from the top of my primary and she is bubbling a ton right now, getting yellow foam in the bottom of my airlock.....think that is ok?

Install a blowoff tube instead of the airlock, should solve any problems that may arise. I have an IPA and DIPA in primary right now, went to check on the IPA, no blow off, just airlock, and got there just in time! The airlock was partially clogged and the bucket lid was extremely swollen. Got a nice little krasuen shower as I switched to a blowoff, fun times!

It looks like your temp is pretty high. You might want to fill that bucket with water and add a frozen bottle of water - fast.
