    Keg Dry Hop - Adding Hops Days Before Transfer?

    I hook my fermenter up to a keg full of Star-San, so as it ferments it pushes out the sanitizer and fills the keg with CO2. I still plan to dry hop in primary, but I would like to get some of the post-fermentation hop character/aroma. My thoughts are it would be better to have the hops in the...

    Keg Dry Hop - Adding Hops Days Before Transfer?

    Right now I use fermentation CO2 to purge my Star San filled serving keg which allows me to do low oxygen transfers. Currently when I dry hop, I do it loose in primary and when I transfer from primary to keg I use an inline filter to catch the large hop particles. Everything so far has been...

    Bell's Light Hearted Ale

    I must have mis-remembered the Podcast. Here is a recipe I got for it based on this and possibly the subscriber only CB&B article. I can't remember the source, but I believe it was on another thread on the forum. I brew 3 gallon batches, so I provided the % and oz/gal for scaling. Grain Bill -...

    Hoppy American Wheat Guidance

    I want more of the NEIPA vibe for hop aroma, but more bitterness than a standard BJCP designed American Wheat. Not quite to West Coast IPA levels though, just more bitter than the guidelines lay out. I believe the schedule above yeilds 47 IBU.

    Hoppy American Wheat Guidance

    Hi All, I am working on a recipe for a Hoppy American Wheat ale. I know the BJCP guidelines top out around 0.63 BU/GU, but I’m shooting for more of an IPA vibe to this one. My question is regarding my hop schedule. First, the malt bill is 44% Pilsner, 44% red wheat, 8% Munich, and some rice...

    Azacca Pale Ale

    Do you have a recipe for this? I was planning on a Ekuanot, Azacca, and Idaho 7 pale ale, but I might cut out the Idaho 7.

    Hop plant is going bad :(

    Absolutely! I have seen people "burn" their lawns with it, but it is typically because the spreader tipped over and dumped a huge pile in the lawn. They are about as safe and easy as it can get. I am not sure of the specific nutrient requirements for hops, but I do know that over time using the...

    Hop plant is going bad :(

    If you can't find Milorganite (I know it is damn near impossible during the spring and summer), Menards and Lowes carry house brand organics that are meant to compete with Milorganite. Here is a link to Lowes' version: Lowes Procare 4-3-0 Fertilizer

    Does Sunlight Affect Wort?

    I know that sunlight/UV is a big no-no for beer, but is it also bad for wort? I was brewing the other day in direct sunlight and thought about the possible effects it could have. So, is sunlight bad for wort, or am I alright to keep brewin’ in the warm winter sun?

    Help Figuring Out Home Water Profile?

    This sample was pulled from an outside spigot, but if I were to use this for brewing I would use my filtered water which should take care of the chlorine. Is there any way to remove alkalinity from water aside from dilution?

    Help Figuring Out Home Water Profile?

    Awesome, thanks for the insight. Unfortunately I have no idea what the chloride and sulfite levels are, but that gives me an idea of the water profile for my seltzer!

    Help Figuring Out Home Water Profile?

    That is what I was thinking, but it doesn’t seem too likely. I will probably just stick to RO water from Walmart so I know what I am getting each time. At only $2 a batch it’s hardly a concern.

    Help Figuring Out Home Water Profile?

    I reached out to my city water department to see if they had any information on the mineral content of my home water. While I don't think I can use any of the information they provided, I have attached the city water report and a recent test they ran on my house's water. Could you help me...

    IPA That's Gotten Better With Age?

    3 gallon batch hop schedule: 60 min - 0.6oz Nugget 15 min - 0.5oz each of Citra and Simcoe Hopstand - 0.6oz each of Cascade and Amarillo Dry Hop (on day 2 for 3 days since it was fermented at 92ºF) - 0.8oz each of Amarillo and Centennial This yielded an estimated 84 IBU. I will need to...

    IPA That's Gotten Better With Age?

    I brewed a Black IPA in early November that has been in the keg now for 42 days. I brewed this using Omega's HotHead Kveik yeast at 92F. I prepared a yeast starter, but I did not pitch nutrients into the wort (OG of 1.070). The beer was smelling good at first, but about midway through...

    Moving Kegs After Fining?

    I was thinking about floating dip tubes, but I do a keg-purging fermentation (keg filled with StarSan and pushed out with fermentation CO2) and I feel like there's a chance the dip-tube doesn't fall to the bottom and push out all the sanitizer. Do you ever have issues with your floating dip tubes?

    Moving Kegs After Fining?

    I have read that once you add a fining agent to a keg it should not be moved. Unfortunately, my setup does not allow me to not move the kegs around. Part of me would love to fine my beers, but I am not sure if it would be beneficial since I have to move them around a few times before they kick...

    Warm Conditioning A Lager

    Thanks for the suggestions. I might have to find another fridge, but I am not sure if it will be possible. I am already rocking two mini-fridges in the garage and I don't think wifey would be too fond of a third. I may just need to move to a keezer at some point so I have room for a few other...
