Im brewing up a batch of hefeweizen and i want to twist it up. I normally get bannana from this recipe but i got to thinking......
Tropical hefeweizen? Dare i add mango and coconut.
I have a pound of flaked coconut sitting in the cabinet along with a bunch of frozen mango...
Perhaps i will split and try different stuff.
I dont have room in kegs so i was just going to toss this in flip tops once it gets to a decent point flavor wise.
Maybe ill flip through the good old experimental home brewing book for some ideas when i get home.
But i do...
Aaand its semi dissapointing.
I scrounged together some 2 row, wheat malt and flaked oats since i have been sitting on this stuff for a while.
I only used cascade late in boil and whirlpool then Saf-33 for the hell of it.
I dont like the way it tastes really. Strong malt and back end...
I may have added a touch too much rye and not enough hops. Just my personal assessment. But I'm always hard on myself when it comes to beer.
I filled 4 bottles and have tried one every weekend to figure when to tap. It's cleaning up nice for sure. I think I'll tap the keg this Sunday. Very...
I have a 2 stage question
Anyone who has used speidel fermenters probably liked them for one reason or another. I like both of mine very much... Until my recent batch where I ended up with a ton of sediment from double dry hopping with whole cone.
I knew what I was...
Happy Friday everyone!
Quick question. I've been researching whole cone hop absorption and can safely estimate between 4.5-6oz liquid is absorbed per oz of whole cone hops.
I'm trying to document this properly so I don't have to re-research every year when I harvest.
I am going to add...
I can always taste a difference. I used to brew extract years ago and hates a certain "taste" about it. Switching to all grain is way cleaner tasting with out that extract "taste"
I would never go back.
Even my buddy who is just starting to brew on occasion uses extract and the "taste"...
Totally getting out of hand over here. This is what happens when I have to wait for brew day. I have 4 revisions of this recipe so far.
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)...
I saw that, I ended up changing things around per usual though. Ill probably mess with the hop additions a little. Hopefully my bazooka tube can handle all the whole cone I will be using.

I have been thinking of whipping up something similar to Bucolia from Bissell bros.
Thing is I just received 2lbs of wet whole cone cascade. So I will be using those for flavor/aroma. I have some Magnum laying around for bittering.
Anyone try to brew this beer or...
Im entertaining a career change and a possible opportunity has been presented.
Im just curious if any of you other beer lovers work in the industry on the distributor side of things?
Do you like it? Good pay and bonus/incentives? etc etc
I know every company is different.
I am 100% set on biab. I also agree that this is a method I wish I started out with to avoid some headaches along the way. But experience is half the battle.
If I run the cook top, pump for recirc and pump to recirc ice water in the chiller I may be pushing the limit of a...
