    Double IPA Stone Enjoy By IPA

    I plan on it. I really want to do a Scotch Ale and some sort of chocolate coconut stout and then probably the Enjoy By clone. I just brewed for the first time in over a year and now I just want to brew everything.

    Barking Dog Scottish Ale by Jeff Niggemeyer

    Well, I was really hoping to see a picture of the poured beer.

    Double IPA Stone Enjoy By IPA

    Right on. I think I'll try this next. I love "Enjoy By." It's one of my favorites.

    Ingredients not in BeerSmith

    So, BeerSmith does not have the extract that I purchased from my LHBS yesterday. I wanted to add it in but it asks for the Potential SG and/or the Yield%. I have no idea how to find this information. The extract is Breiss Golden Light LME and I checked the specs on their Web site but can't find...

    Deep Six Brewing System - v2.0

    I love this. Everything I do is DIY and I'm pretty handy but I just don't have the brewing experience to even understand what's going on here, as I haven't even gotten past extract brewing yet. Maybe one day. Awesome work.

    Double IPA Stone Enjoy By IPA

    Any thoughts on whether or not it would be worth it to do an extract version of this?

    First Time Cider

    Now, I'm interested in backsweetening and I'm also interested in having a sparkling cider in about a week from now. Haha. Actually, that's impossible. But anyways, how do I go about adding the concentrate? Do I just rack onto it in my bottling bucket? Or am I supposed to kill the yeast, rack...

    First Time Cider

    The bad smell has settle out quite a bit. It was in primary for two weeks. I just racked it yesterday and it was at 1.000 at room temp. I wanted to rack it onto some cinnamon sticks but I didn't have any laying around. I picked some up today but I'm not how many to use in a one gallon carboy...

    First Time Cider

    What kind of yeast do you normally use?

    First Time Cider

    Been fermenting for about five days so far. It's been smelling like freshly pounded butthole but I've read that's normal. The bad smell is starting to subside and the cider smell is starting to come out. It's bubbling about once every ten seconds. When should I transfer it to secondary? Does...

    First Time Cider

    You're saying that the yeasty taste MIGHT come if I DON'T do a secondary?

    First Time Cider

    Okay, so I've brewed plenty of beer but this will be my first crack at cider. I'm a a little short on cash so I can't spring for anything fancy. I recently took a trip to an apple orchard and my family picked some apples as well as purchased a gallon jug of "flash pasteurized" apple cider. I'm...

    Double IPA Hop Juice Imperial IPA

    Bottling this tonight. As you may have read, I changed some of the hops. This beer smells incredible but I'm not crazy about the taste. If you can pick out the grapefruit taste found in some hops then imagine that taste x1000. This beer is tasting exactly like a bite of bitter grapefruit. Very...

    Double IPA Hop Juice Imperial IPA

    Transferred to secondary last week. When I opened the bucket I realized that my friend who had topped it off had put way too much water in it. It was sitting at about the 6.5 gallon mark. This was concerning because I was worried it would taste watered down. This was not the case. It was...

    Double IPA Hop Juice Imperial IPA

    Checked this one today. I'm having a difficult time keeping the temperature down. It sits right at 72. There are no fruity aromas so I think it should be alright. The fermentation is really active. The krausen busted the lid off the airlock and it was foaming out the top. Smells incredible. I...

    Double IPA Hop Juice Imperial IPA

    I know I changed the recipe a little bit but I just took the first gravity reading. It read 1.037. That seems really low compared to the 1.078 that was quoted in the original recipe. What do you guys think?

    Double IPA Hop Juice Imperial IPA

    Brewing this one tomorrow. I didn't have a chance to stop by my LHBS before today so I don't have enough time for a starter so I'll just pitch it as is. Since dry extract is more expensive I picked up 10 pounds of light LME. My LHBS was out of Warrior so I substituted Nugget. Also, since I enjoy...

    Brewing the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA clone today

    Normally, when brewing a beer you will add hops to the boil at the beginning, middle and end. With the DFH 90 minute, you are adding hops every few minutes. Hops added at the beginning of the boil will add to the bitterness of the beer. Hops in the middle work toward the flavor and hops added...

    90 Minute IPA Fermenation Problem?

    The metallic taste dropped out. It actually tastes pretty good. The beer is quite a bit darker than the actual 90 min and it's a lot more cloudy. I didn't use any Irish moss or anything like that so that's probably why. It smells pretty piney which is a little different than the original but the...
