    Awesome! Thanks. What is ITMFA? Forgive me, I can never figure that stuff out.

    Mt Hood Pilsner Recipe Critique

    I went with the "pseudoBohemian Pils" profile in Bru N' Water. I am still very new to water adjustments so I wasn't really sure what to do. The Hydro Sample post boil tasted great! Ca 19 Mg 4 Na 7 So4 15 Cl 34 2ml Lactic Acid to get to 5.3 theoretical (I don't have a pH meter yet). I didn't...

    Columbus-Maris Otter - first smash ?s

    Your ging to get a ton of differing opinions, but when I brew SMaSH beers it is to get a sense of the flavor and aroma of a certain hop. I just did a Simcoe SMaSH and did 60, 20, Whirlpool, and Dry Hop additions. I use about 4oz per 5.5 gallon batch. This last one I did .5oz @ 60, .75 @ 20...

    Mt Hood Pilsner Recipe Critique

    Great. Thanks. I ended up using regular Weyermann Pilsner on this batch, but I still have 8oz of Mt Hood left. I may follow this one up with the Floor Malted and see which i like better.

    I brewed a Vienna about 2 months ago. I used: 7.5 lbs Vienna 2 lbs Pilsner 2 oz Carafa Special II My color on Beersmith was way lighter than the actual beer. In fact, I had 4oz of Carafa Special II in the recipe and my LHBS advised to knock it back to 2oz. The color of mine is very close to...

    Mt Hood Pilsner Recipe Critique

    Awesome! Thank you again for the tips! Do you happen to know hat your water profile is. That is something I need to figure out before I brew this. I use Bru n' Water and build from RO. Do you step mash with the Floor Malter Pils? I've read that stuff is less modified.

    Mt Hood Pilsner Recipe Critique

    Thanks Mr. Powers. Does your recipe produce noticeable bitterness, or I guess a better way of phrasing that is, what IBU does your recipe turn out? I like my German style beers to have a somewhat noticeable bitterness. Typically, I shoot for the upper limit of the style range, and I am usually...

    Mt Hood Pilsner Recipe Critique

    I have a pound of 2016 Mt Hood I need to use. Does this look ok? Im concerned it may be good much hops even though the IBU and BU/GU ratio are right for the style. This would be my first lager. OG 1.048 ABV 4.9% IBU 36 9.5 lbs Weyermann Pilsner .5 lbs Carafoam 1oz. Mt hood 60 1oz. Mt Hood...

    Mt Hood 2016 Crop

    I bought a pound of 2016 Mt Hood from Yakima Valley Hops before I read that they don't do well for long storage. I think the number I read is that they retain 50-60% of their AA after 6mos. The AA is something like 5%. Should I adjust this when building my recipe?

    NE Pale Ale Recipe Critique

    Yes, it is .5 oz. I'm really kinda shooting for something lower gravity than an IPA. Right now I'm mashing in a 5 gallon cooler, so 5 gallons of a bigger IPA is not feasible. But I would like to get close following APA numbers. When i have a bigger tun, I will definitely go bigger.

    NE Pale Ale Recipe Critique

    You are correct, I am shooting for APA, not IPA.
