    calling all disc golfers.....

    Yeah, I didn't go out to BL, we ended up throwing a 12 hole right up the road. Chucked par. :tank: And anytime you wanna go, lemme know, I have a Three Rivers pass and have yet to play Hyland Ski..... :D

    Overhopped Amber IPA?

    Ha!! That's awesome. :mug: I always thought of SA and Austin as being the great culture centers of Texas, but whatta I know, I only lived in Houston and D/FW as a transplanted Chicagoan. I've only been to SA once, and it was really before I was too into craft beers.

    Overhopped Amber IPA?

    I think that TX gets Green Flash, I'm pretty I discovered them when I was living in Dallas a few yrs ago. But I totally know whatcha mean, it's hit or miss where the good beers are down there, should be some good spots in SA though. Skeezer's clone? Oh yeah, that beer's the sh¡¡¡¡¡t!! Better...

    Overhopped Amber IPA?

    That IS awesome stuff. A buddy of mine sent a couple bottles up earlier this year and I really enjoyed it. Do you get Green Flash by you? They make some excellent hop bombs. Their West Coast is one of my faves and their Palate Wrecker rivals PtE IMO.

    calling all disc golfers.....

    Oh dude, we should meet up and throw BL before the summer's up. Place is awesome! I might be heading out there this afternoon/evening with the other brewer at Day Block. I'll shoot ya a txt if we do.

    Converting AG recipe to extract

    Right, like I said, it can be done with extract. But since you can't run the proper mash with extract, it's not going to be the ideal environment for souring bacteria over the long term. You've been around here for awhile, Billl, I know that you know about malliard reactions, the instability of...

    Converting AG recipe to extract

    Hey man, I'm not trying to start an argument. My statement was based on the fact that an all extract beer is generally not going to hold up as well over the long periods of time needed to make a good sour as a grain wort. Also, you cannot control the mash on an extract beer because there is...

    Yikes...Mold (not a "is this infected" thread)

    Is this "fermentation chamber" a chest freezer? Those can sweat and get quite damp inside, but you can buy crystals that'll absorb moisture. Just put a small, open container of them in the freeze and it should help. Oh, also, wipe down the outside of the fermenter after filling it. :)

    Dry Hopping a Copper IPA

    Fuggle would likely be a great choice for this brew. That was what I was going to suggest. :mug:

    Boil over

    You are correct, it is. But.... when they make LME/DME, they boil the wort to concentrate it (and then spray dry it for DME) so the break has already happened. It breaks again when boiled, but nothing like a grain wort, and it's not necessary since the break happened once already during manufacture.

    Boil over

    Are you adding hops around the first break? Hops can help break the surface tension and precipitate the break proteins. I haven't brewed an extract batch in a year or so, but I do remember there being another break when the kettle came back to boil after an extract add. Try and time a hop...

    Converting AG recipe to extract

    Yeah, the original recipe you posted, named Velvet Hammer, said it's a Stone IPA clone w/added specialty grains. The Velvet Hammer sour beer you linked above is a sour brown with ~15 IBU, the recipe in the OP will not reproduce either. What beer are you trying to make; a sour brown or an IPA...

    Converting AG recipe to extract

    I saw that on the recipe, but it's not. Nowhere close to a recipe for Stone IPA. Or a good IPA at all for that matter. Stone IPA would be roughly 13 lbs of 2-row and roughly 1 lb of crystal 15 (maybe Crisp caramalt). Magnum an Perle hops at 90 mins for bittering and Centennial late and dry hop...

    10 Extract Batches In - Still Average beer

    Definitely. Especially if the recipe is calling for a darker extract.

    Boil over

    Word. Fermcap-S is my hero each and every brew day.
