    What to do with these hops from Belgium?

    yeah def a belgian pale, and i agree that the hops are very much there but not necessarily bitter or haevily dry hopped... maybe they are just very heavy with late hop additions... actually the gentleman farmer who sold me the hops, in addition to owning that largest hop farm in belgium...

    What to do with these hops from Belgium?

    thanks for the advice, my sentiments exactly about using them to make a Belgian style (at least the bulk of them).. I'm definitely going to try a dubbel.. As for getting them back in, I just put them in the backpack and crossed my fingers... they were in sealed opaque bags too, I figured at...

    What to do with these hops from Belgium?

    I just got back from a nice trip to beautiful Belgium. I was lucky enough to meet up with a hop farmer in a bar outside the hop museum in Poperinge, and copped some samples from him. I got about 7oz of 9% Target and 3.5oz of 4.5% Styrian Goldings from him (for 5 euro!). I've never brewed any...

    Noobie question. Can I use apple juice from my juicer?

    i did my 1st and only cider that way too, using a juiceman junior from the 80's, just a few months ago. yes, you should be careful to clean it out every few lbs and keep it spinning at high speeds one apple at a time... i had about 30lbs of apples and topped off what came out with about 2...

    Back-sweetening cider...

    for me, lactose is not an option (allergic) and artificial sweetners just taste bad.. but I'd like to sweeten up a cider I have before kegging it... I'm hesitant (maybe unnecessarily) of dropping more campden tablets in there because I used them in the beginning after pressing the apples and im...
