    British Golden Bitter Recipe

    You’ve inspired me to brew this again this summer. Any advice on hop schedule? Thanks.

    Darker Biere de Garde Recipe?

    Just saw this. My notes indicate that I didn’t like it early on (at 2-3 months age) due to some “misbalance” between malt flavors and hop flavors. I did 3:1 CaCl to gypsum on water additions so it should have accentuated the maltiness. It really dried out (1.062 to 1.008) in attenuation. I noted...

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    I ended up doing 1 ounce Zeus whole leaf hops for bittering and 10 ounces whole leaf Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops at flame out for a 20 minute hot steep. I let them float free in the wort with me stirring and “dunking” them during the hot steep. I then strained them out and let the wort...

    Bully! Porter Clone Critique

    I like Bully! as well. I haven’t had it for several months, but a couple of thoughts based on memory: As noted by the others, that’s lots of chocolate. I’m wondering if you could cut it in half. Also, I recall a touch of burnt, roast malt in the Bully! flavor. I’m wondering if maybe a few ounces...

    The Kitchen Sink IPA

    Lol. What’s that like 3 pellets ? “Leave no hop behind!”

    The Kitchen Sink IPA

    Also, malt bill and hops look good. Congratulaions to you and your wife.

    The Kitchen Sink IPA

    How is 0.02 oz of leftover Simcoe even possible? That’s a story I want to hear.

    All Munich Brew

    If you do mineral adjustments, another option is to increase the chloride to sulfate ratio. This will increase the maltiness perception compared to bitterness. Based on my brewing water profile, for malty beers, I’ll typically add 1 - 1.5 tsp CaCl to the mash for a 5 gallon batch. EDIT: I just...

    All Munich Brew

    If you think it’s too bitter, I’d agree with this. Maybe cut the 60 minute addition in half, and add the remaining hops at flameout. Sterling hops have a nice flavor that more flameout additions will enhance without the perceived bitterness.

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    Do I need a longer (or hotter) hop stand since the leaf hop lupulin glands aren’t as “available” as they are in pellets?

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    This is actually pretty brilliant. It can’t be too hard to fish them out with my giant strainer.

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    I have the large capacity siphon and I could definitely do that. With my typical process, I just look at it as one more thing to clean. This time, it’s probably a good idea.

    Drop them into the bag as-is?

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    Did some more searching of the forums, and I see Denny says 12 oz wort per ounce hops. Holy cow. That means it might be more like 1 gallon wort lost. Leaf Hop Absorption Measured

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    For absorption, should I assume something like 1/2 gallon of wort for 11 oz whole leaf hops?

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    I might actually dry hop a little of this. Something like 3 oz (1 each Centennial, Cascade, Chinook) and put it in a bag. I like to go easy on the dry hops typically. Right on. I’m not looking to change my typical process, but this might turn into a fun, annual “one-off” beer. That being...

    Using Munich/Pilsen LME

    If you wanted to do a pale ale, and subdue the color and “extractiness” of the Munich LME, you could try a mini mash with more base malt. Something like 4 lbs Munich LME and 4 lbs pils or 2-row might make a decent base for a 5-gallon pale ale.

    Tips for Whole Hops IPA - Lots of hops

    I just received a bunch of whole hops (Chinook, Cascade, Centennial and Zeus) from a local grower. They were dried, vacuum sealed, and tested for alpha and beta %s. Seems pretty legit, so I’m giving them a whirl. I’m thinking of throwing 11 oz of them into a 5-gallon batch. My plan would be 1 oz...

    Citra / Galaxy / El Dorado APA?

    Lol. This is awesome. I’ll have to try it some time. The recipe sounds outstanding. I just saw you’re from the SC coast. Get out and stay safe, man. Sending safe and dry vibes your way.
