    Nugget SMaSH - hopping schedule recommendations?

    It turned out fantastic!! I was way off on gravity, which made it a very sessionable beer. The grain bill was the Russian River Row 2 Hill 56 grain bill which worked fabulously. I thought the Nugget would be super pungent, but was surprised with how balanced, mild, and fruity this beer was. It...

    American Pale Ale Russian River Row 2 Hill 56 Clone

    Brewed this sticking to the original grain bill, but did Nugget hops all the way through with a heavy dose in the whirlpool and dry hop (with just a kiss of Cascade). Turned out real nice! The grain bill will definitely be a repeat for me, for sure!

    Inkbird Controller Question

    Excellent - thanks, guys! I'm likely to ferment lager temps, doing a gradual ramp down from initial ferm temps to lagering temps. I'll just move what's in my freezer to my other freezer while ramping down, just to be safe. Thanks again for the info!

    Inkbird Controller Question

    Hey, I want to build a fermentation chamber using an Inkbird temperature controller. I have a fridge with a freezer on top, and would like to know if the freezer temp will be affected by the temperature changes caused by the Inkbird. Just wondering if the freezer will be useless if I use the...

    Nugget SMaSH - hopping schedule recommendations?

    Hey, now - I have a ton to Nugget hops sitting around which I've mainly used for bittering. I'd like to use them up and was planning to do a Nugget/Golden Promise SMaSH IPA....possibly using 1308 or US-05 as my yeast. In past, I've followed a hopping schedule where I did a small bittering...

    Help me put together a hop bill with these hops

    @bigmac - great suggestion! With the limited selection, floral/piney/dank/citrus is kind of what I'm targeting

    Help me put together a hop bill with these hops

    @BigMac great suggestion on the crystal/cascade combo. I guess with my limited hop selection I'm going for something citrusy/piney/floral. I haven't used crystal much, so I'm intrigued to pair it with something else that would compliment it. Cascade seems to be a good pick :)

    Help me put together a hop bill with these hops

    Hey, now - I am brewing up a pale ale today: 9lb golden promise, 2 lb oats, London 1318 yeast. I have a ton of random hops I need to use up; just not sure what combination and amounts to use. Would like to do a bittering charge, then a whirlpool/hop stand and then 2 dry hop additions. I've got...

    Wyeast 1318 yeast harvesting question

    Hey, now - I'm planning to use Wyeast 1318 in my next beer, and understand this is a top cropping yeast strain. Having no experience with this yeast, I am curious about re-use after brewing. Am I able to harvest from the slurry after fermentation, or, being a top cropping strain, is it best to...
