    Cubes. Definately cubes. More depth of flavor, less wood.

    Oak Aging

    Drinking a bomber of this right now and it is fantastic. Smooth vanilla oak, almost a hint of white wine oak flavor. I bottled at the beginning of october 11. Love this beer.

    Cold Crash and Dry Hop

    Was planning on a week of dry hop. If I don't get it bottled by Sunday though the family is coming to town and I will lose my chance for another two weekends to get it bottled.

    Cold Crash and Dry Hop

    Should I wait until my dry hop period is up before cold crashing? Or is it ok to overlap my cold crash and dry hop times by 2 days?

    Had a DIPA get stuck at

    Krausen has dropped and so I took a hydro sample. 0.99. Wow... I was just hoping to get to 1.01 or so. On the upside it did taste fantastic and the yeast profile is making its way through the hops. Can't wait to get this dry hopped and bottled to see what it is all about.

    Had a DIPA get stuck at

    IBU's were close to 200. Most were from the first wort hop and are really smooth bitterness. That being said the beer was too sweet for my taste. The bitterness lingered on the back end but were completely overwhelmed up front by the sweet malt flavor. I felt it would have been better dried...

    24 hours after adding Beta AE the brew is back at high krausen and chugging away. Pretty happy so far.

    Had a DIPA get stuck at

    I need to dry hop still. I am curious to see how much further attenuation I get. It was definitely active this morning. And yes I know airlock activity is not a sign of fermentation or lack thereof.

    Had a DIPA get stuck at

    Yeah. Over a week the SG did not drop any more. It was a consistent 1.023 in three measurements. It restarted last night. We'll see how it goes from here. Thanks for the tip on the dextrose. Depending on how it goes from here I may try it.

    Had a DIPA get stuck at

    1.023. Was experimenting with 3787 wyeast to see if any of the characteristics of the yeast would make it through a STUPIDLY hopped DIPA. OG was 1.073. Missed my mash temp due to a thermometer issue. End of the mash was at 160 rather than the 152 I was hoping for. Just added some amylase...
