    Keg Dry hopping warm under pressure ?

    Just brewed an IPA yesterday. 3# of flakes oats and 15# of 2row 1oz mosaic hops at 5min and then a massive pound of hops (mix of enigma, mosaic, and motueka) Question is. With that kind of hop-load, any reason to dry hop? Also... dry hopping tends to make my beer burn Thoughts?

    Corny keg charger

    Hey everyone - wanted to see if anyone had used a corny keg charger. How good are they and on a 5 gallon keg how much should I expect to get on 1 cartridge? I’m taking with my 10lb co2 tank every time and while it’s effective, it’s also cumbersome Thanks!

    Citra hops- Whats the Deal

    brew peeps, Has anyone else had varying results from citra hops? I’ve brewed many times with it and more so than none I get very grapefruit (bite/tangy) characters. Once I was able to get the more “stanky” character I wanted out of it. I guess more so honeydew? Any ideas? Looking...

    It seems everyday I read something crazy another brewery is doing. I bring this up as I’m getting ready to do my first pumpkin recipe. So I ask? What’s to say we could “purée” a pumpkin pie and just put it in the mash? Wonder if this has ever been tried..
