    How to Brew beer in an hour (or less)

    Justin, Some people will never get it. No worries, those that do understand that this does not have to take the place of their expensive equipment. I have done a number of these types to test our new hops. It is a great way to squeeze in a brew and learn something in a condensed time period...

    Funny you said Melon cause that was my first impression. Then I got overwhelming tropical fruits. I love it as a single hop but would also love to see how it plays with other hops.

    15 Minute Kitchen Sink Hoppy Wheat Brew Day and Recipe

    Sounds like a good one. One of the best beers I have brewed was inspired by Gumballhead IPA, a heavily wheat IPA. Very nice!

    I can't tell it my starter is ok or not.

    When using a stir plate no need to use oxygen. I use a stir plate and it can sometimes be difficult to see a difference. If you shut off the stirring for a few minutes about 12-24 hours in you can see activity. Give it a try.

    Thick...Syrupy...sludgy...STOUT!!! How to get it!!

    If your OG is up higher than say 1.090 you should end up with what you want with around a 150 -155 mash temp unless you add brett. Most yeast will attenuate at 80% on the high end. Adding oats would just be insurance.
