    Can You Brew It recipe for Green Flash West Coast IPA

    I''ve used s05 on this one a few times. I would suggest 2 or 1.5 packs. I've found that 11g of S05 only gets it down to about 1.016 from 1.070.

    troubleshoot a counter pressure bottle filler

    I got the filler from an online store, Hopdawgs.ca I've been emailing them and Chris, the owner has been really helpful. After contacting the manufacturer we may have a solution: So it looks like i'll be getting a couple new ball valves. Hopefully that answers it.

    troubleshoot a counter pressure bottle filler

    If I understand you right, I don't think so. The barbs on either side of the valve handle are different sizes so gas in is (from tank) on one side and out (to CPBF T) is the other.

    troubleshoot a counter pressure bottle filler

    I took apart the T. I didn't see/ feel any blocks in the valves or anywhere else. I hooked the gas up to the other valve this time. I can barely hear any gas coming through but I can hear it a bit. Certainly not as much as if i loosen the bolts on the T closer to the gas tank. I made a...

    troubleshoot a counter pressure bottle filler

    I bought it from an online store. I emailed them about it but they said they don't build them, they come assembled. I'll take it apart and go from there. Thanks for the reply. This was dropping down the page quickly :)

    Not loving S-04...

    I primary for 2 weeks and then keg. They taste right as soon carbed, usually a week but they taste BEST after another 3 weeks in the keg. I wouldn't call them tart or sour or any other words used itt though. I find this is true for all my beer, even ipas.

    Not loving S-04...

    It's my go to yeast for my stout. I like the flavour. It goes even better when I add coffee to the stout. I have made it in a bitter that I didn't love so haven't made since but i've used it >5X in that stout.

    I made this terrible quality video on my phone in the dark to help explain my problem. :) http://youtu.be/0bDuG-X8WZQ

    troubleshoot a counter pressure bottle filler

    I got a CPBF recently but I can't make it work. I think there is a problem with the gas side. I can here gas going in and when I slightly loosen any tube at the 'T' i hear it. But when I open the valve I don't hear any gas coming out the bottom of the dip tube. When I turn that gas...

    Blonde Ale w/ Spruce tips

    Hey guys I tried some of this last night. Its still a little green and definitely needs clearing time but it was a good first taste. I wouldn't say the spruce was overpowering at all. There is a light hint of it on the nose and it gives the beer a real 'crisp' taste. It is far away from...

    Blonde Ale w/ Spruce tips

    sfrisby, i will be drinking the keg in acouple days so can report more then. in the meantime i would think that it wuld be better to pile on the late spruce additions. i was gonna put in my 5 oz at flameout but got scared of sanitation so went at 10. when i taste it i'll see how much spruce.

    Sitka spruce

    The Blonde Ale I just made had Amarillo in it. I figured i'd get 'piny' flavour from the spruce tips and wanted citrus to round it out. As far as I know, Mexico is BC's Mexico! :) Does anyone have any dry-sprucing tips? Amounts? Sanitation?

    thermometer was off...help

    How many times do we hear it around here.... patience.... I ended up just leaving this in the carboy. A little bit out of stubborness and not wanting to throw out the batch but mostly out of lazyness. Lo and behold two and half weeks after being stuck at 1040 and 5 weeks after brew day the...

    Blonde Ale w/ Spruce tips

    I hope you guys sort out your trade. In the meantime I kegged my Blonde Ale after 10 days. I didn't get a ton of spruce scent or flavour out of the sample. I might dry-spruce in a bit.

    Sitka spruce

    I'm just down the coast (relatively) from Juneau in Prince Rupert, BC. I brewed a Blonde Ale with Sitka Spruce tips in it last weekend. I went a little more scientific than 'half a paper bag' ;) and used 10 oz in a5 gal batch. I used 5 oz at 60 to help bitter and then 5 oz at 10 mins. I...

    Blonde Ale w/ Spruce tips

    I'm brewing this tomorrow morning. I had to make a couple of changes to the recipe, notably the yeast because I'm not feeling the starter i made with 1275. I changed the hops too and then I came in to see your post Budz. I had considered Simcoe. In the end I went with Centennial and...
