Also, as another vegan and brewer I'll take any excuse to go to the montepelier co-op.

Oh the joys of living in Vermont.
Just went to the co-op yesterday and got the last two 4 packs! great store!

Law student, eh?

Just wanna point something out about this here "bittering" addition thing, the back and forth over it is making me dizzy.... the recipe we're working on has a FWH addition, i.e. added to the first runnings. Sure, it provides bitterness, but FWH also lends some flavor and maybe even some aroma to the beer. For this recipe, I surely think that the "bittering" addition would matter. Also, FWIW, we have good reason to believe that this FWH addition is done with extract and not a hop, so that probably matters some too.

Great brew day yesterday. Hit all my targets and the wort tasted awesome. The peachy aroma coming off of my starter of Conan was amazing! I almost drank it instead of pitching it! This is my first 5 gallon batch using this yeast and I have it in a 6.5 gallon glass carboy, so I do have some head space. But, to those who have brewed with Conan before, did you need a blow off tube? I usually always put one on but I was having issues with it last night, so I just put on an airlock. A lot of activity this morning in there so I was curious if I should run out and get a new blow off tube or not?

Thanks,
Mike

Awesome! Conan's the $hit! I did my 5.25 gal batch in a 6.5 w/no issues of blowoff, but I use Fermcap-S, and I still always attach a BO tube just in case.

I'm thinking about using my culture of Conan and doing the Kern River Double Citra with it, get my numbers built up, and get a cake going to use for the HT clone I'm putting together.

Heads up for the cloners. Labelpeelers clearance right now with new Simcoe leaf 1 pound bags going for 13.99. Citra leaf and Centennial leaf also 14.99 and 11.99 respectively.

I got a gravity sample from my 1 gallon test batch with caravienne, that stuff is legit, I think it's in the real deal.

FWH adds a bunch of flavor for sure!

I bought 2 lbs of Simcoe today, didn't see the other two at that price. Matt said he was selling them at $1 above cost.
