Brew something small to drink while you wait for it. Plan on a longer ferment, longer clearing time and longer conditioning.

And big starter.

I will be brewing the AHS arrogant bastard clone this coming sunday.

The kit included 10.5 # amber LME, 1.5# 120L crystal, 4oz of chinook

I have some lesft over cascade hops and was thinking of splitting the 5gallons into 2 - 2.5 gallon carboys.

I would keep one exactly how the recipe calls and one I would dry hop with 1 oz of cascade.

What do you think??

Is this worth doing or should i just stick with the recipe????

I would stick with the recipe. Not to say that the cascade wouldn't work, just there is something to be said about making a recipe as written (at least the first time).

i am brewing this tomorrow. I asked this question before but only got one response of advice.

Any opinions on whether I should split this batch and dry hop one with cascade, or just do the whole five gallons together. The recipe calls for no dry hopping, but AB shur smells and tastes like it is dry hopped.

Thanks

I'd probably just leave it as one 5 gal batch. I'd probably dry hop as well, but if I wanted to dry hop with something else after I tasted it I'd just order the kit again.

I bottled my AHS arrogant bastard clone three weeks ago and after cracking a few open it is still quite sweet and not carbonated all the way. Is it becasue it is a 7.5 abv beer that it is taking so long??

Anyone have experience with this problem???
