    I know another NEIPA water profile question

    So I plan to brew a NEIPA tomorrow and I have gone through many threads and I know allot of people brew with a 2:1 Cl / S04, but from a couple of batches I have brewed I have not cared for the "chalky" flavor I pick up on in the beer. Has anyone had good results with brewing with higher sulfate...

    Brewing With Briess Blonde Roast Oat Malt?

    Has anyone tried brewing a NEIPA using this malt? I never heard of it until recently and was thinking about substituting my flaked oats with it ~8% of my grain bill. http://www.brewingwithbriess.com/Products/Roasted.htm

    Best way to vacuum seal homegrown hops?

    I am about to vacuum seal my homegrown hops in the next few days and was hoping for some input. Last year I vacuum sealed bags of my hops using foodsaver FM2000 and food saver bags. I had no problem storing them or with the sealing the bags, but when I went to use them I noticed there was quite...

    3 Month Old Giga Yeast - How large of a starter?

    So yesterday i received my Giga Yeast Vermont IPA strain and was a little disappointed that the packaging date read April 25th. With that said Gigayeast website states yeast higher that 17P or is 3months old requires a starter. I am planning on brewing a NEIPA with a SG of 1.065 (16P) with this...

    NEW West Coast IPA Recipe - Thoughts?

    I used 50/50 split brewers and vienna in my APA with really good results. Won gold at the Michigan homebrew cup last year so I thought why not try to do it for an IPA as well?

    NEW West Coast IPA Recipe - Thoughts?

    Hey everyone it’s been awhile since I’ve brewed a “good” west coast style IPA and was hoping for some feedback. I am pretty set on the grain bill as my worry is with the amount of hops / hop additions I have. Will the amount of hops I have planned lead to an astringent beer? Or a “too bitter” of...

    NEW RIS Recipe - Feedback?

    Ya the old rasputin clone has ALLOT of crystal malt which is why you probably finish with such a high FG. With that much crystal i think the beer would be too sweet and cloying for my taste which is why I tried to limit the amount of crystal in my recipe. I plan to brew my recipe above this...

    NEW RIS Recipe - Feedback?

    I have used special B and C120 in the past and got too much of that plum flavor which is why i took it out in this recipe and decided to try using carabrown instead which gives a toasty "graham cracker" flavor. I am still pondering of throwing some crystal back in at a small amount maybe a 90L...

    NEW RIS Recipe - Feedback?

    Hey everyone. Below is a new RIS recipe I have been working on. Still debating about replacing some of the specialty grains as I am not sure if I want to use coffee malt. Also thinking of replacing the oats with flaked barley. All feedback is appreciated. Recipe Specifications...

    Adding FermFast Glucoamylase Enzyme for Brut IPA

    So you went close to a 2:1 sulfate to Cl. Based on the taste would you keep the same or increase/decrease?

    Adding FermFast Glucoamylase Enzyme for Brut IPA

    I think I'm going to just go for it and add the enzyme to the mash at 146F and see what happens. The 10.4oz of hops seems right, Im going with a combo of Ekuanot, Mosaic, and Amarillo and go with a NEIPA dry hopping schedule. my hop weight will be slightly less as im going to use cryo hops so...
