I have my first batch of this sitting in two fermentors. It's been 10 days of primary. I don't have any open kegs yet to dry hop in, can i put the dry hops in a strainer bag in the primary and still get a good dry hop?

I was all set to brew this tonight, but storms are blowing in. Looks like brew day is rained out!

I brewed this today, and experienced my first brew day disaster when my 6 gallon glass carboy shattered on my garage floor right at the end of the boil. It only fell about 2 inches, but that was enough to cost me $50!

Good thing my LHBS was open today. Went and picked up a couple more Better Bottles. No more glass for me!

Hopefully I am just freaking out over a green beer and things will mellow after bottle conditioning
Are you using bottled or house water?
I always use campden tablets for my water : )

I use water from the tap because about 10 brews ago I didn't feel like running to the store for water and the beer I made with tap water tasted great, no discernible difference.

I cracked a bottle of this last night (after only 4 days in the bottle) because I am impatient and was really worried about some kind of infection...it was really good! It was already decently carb'd and the orange flavor shone through, no band aid flavor at all

My taste buds must have been off during bottling.

That's good news it tastes good now.
Did you lick the caps before bottling thinking it was stamps? Lol

I brewed this yesterday and used washed Wyeast 1056.

Here is a pic:

The krausen is much darker than any beer I have made before. When I say darker, it's more brown in color, instead of kahki.

Look ok?

Thanks! It sounds like a machine gun in the blow off water. Bubbling at least once per second.

I am brewing this today for the third time. It is so good. The first two times I brewed it, I used wyeast 1056 and it turned out wonderful. Today, I am brewing ten gallons and only have one 1056. I have some safale-04 and some Nottingham on hand. Which one would be a better substitute for the 1056?
