    Cold IPA

    I legit thought it was a typo, and maybe meant Gold or Golden IPA. I will say it does sound interesting.

    Less Salt for Long Boil?

    So, to piggy back...when figuring out ion concentrations, the mash....does it take into account the boil or is it strictly the mash?

    Boil off rates

    I'm using a 20 gallon kettle with 5500w element and I also boil with the power around 55%. I boil off a gallon over the course of an hour.

    adding steeped grain to finished beer

    You also have to keep in mind that grain contains a ton of micro organisms on them that could potentially sour/spoil the beer. It's sort of like combining flour and water to make a sourdough starter....whatever wild yeast there is on the flour spontaneously ferments and creates your own starter...

    Ways to Terminate Fermentation at a Desired FG?

    I would mash on the higher side as well. 156-160 depending on what your recipe calculator is telling you. I've done this before with NEIPA's to have the FG finish in the 1.020-1.025 range without the use of lactose.

    Fermented hot pepper sauce

    I'd say I'm about 99% back to my normal smell and taste. There's been recent times when I've had my favorite foods and they taste like I remember them so that's great. Da Bomb isn't a sauce that I'd put any anything on a daily basis however it's fun to have friends try when they come over for...

    Motorized Mash Stirrer

    How are you doing with draining your mash tun with that false bottom set up? I have something simliar however with silicone tubing instead of a hard line and with just water, it drains the mash tun fine. However in actual use, it doesn't drain out as much as I would like.

    Fermented hot pepper sauce

    Well, a big reason for it is from going through covid and losing my taste and smell. The only thing I could pick up was extreme saltiness/sweet or anything spicy. So when I couldn't taste anything else, hot sauce went on anything and everything. That evolved into watching Hot Ones at night...

    Fermented hot pepper sauce

    I'm glad I found this thread. I recently got into making my own hot sauces and currently doing my first fermented one. Previously I fire roasted half a pound of habanero's, along with a red pepper, half an onion and 4 garlic cloves. Once roasted, I threw those into the blender with 3 fingers...

    Newbie CO2 questions

    I keep a bottle of soapy water around just to check for leaks. My most recent one was an ever slow leak from the keg lids PRV...which took about 2 weeks for it to deplete a 5lb bottle. However, with some spraying and very close watching, I noticed bubbles coming from the PRV, which ended up...

    I made this!!!

    I finally felt that about mine after I got into water chemistry. Once I learned that and started to brew with RO Water and build water profiles, I immediately went and re-brewed all my favorite recipes to see how much they would improve and improve greatly they did. It's to the point where...
