    Irish Stout Ode To Arthur, Irish Stout (Guinness Clone)

    How long did you leave it on the 30psi before it was ready? and did you leave it set there to pour?

    Heady Topper- Can you clone it?

    What type of procedure are people using for the dry hop on this? I typically start in a glass carboy, and move to corny keg, and dry hop there, then rack again to another keg after dry hop is done for serving. Wondering at what points to rack between kegs. Should I be looking at racking once...

    Stone 15th Anniversary Escondidian Imperial Black IPA clone

    I had the exact same on my batch, so the suggestions on lower efficiency seem accurate. Ended up pretty much exactly the same, 1.090 and about 4 gal. Still was a great beer.

    Irish Stout Ode To Arthur, Irish Stout (Guinness Clone)

    Brewed this yesterday, but have been having issues somewhere and ended up about 0.010 short on both brews I did that day, so have a SG of 1.036. Would it be a good idea to add a bit of sugar to up the alcohol levels a bit? or should I just leave it at 3.5% ?

    Trim back hops now?

    I am in southwestern ontario. Last few years I was harvesting sometime in September, so that still gives them a good 4 months to grow. Leaning towards just cutting them all back to the ground again.

    Trim back hops now?

    I have neglected my 3rd year hop plants dealing with family/myself going through flu and colds the past few weeks. Now they are growing fairly well, but are a big tangled mess, as I didn't have them trained to posts yet. I did my best to trim a bit and get them climbing posts, but am...

    Help with UK Guinness tap

    I recently purchased a used guinness faucet from a UK ebay vendor. It has a plastic connector which from my research would seem to be a 'john guest' type connector. I am thinking I need something like this: Does anybody have any...

    Pro Mash

    A trick several of us who brew together use, is to keep the promash folder as a shared dropbox folder. That way, we can all access the same data. Dropbox also keeps revision backups for us too.

    Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

    They have been doing a lot of tweaking to this recipe, so it would not surprise me if the IBU is somewhat higher now. I would email the brewery and ask them. The owner is very friendly and may even help you put together the clone recipe.

    2009 Hop garden picture thread.

    After my last post wondering if I was seeing the start of some cones, it looks like the replies were correct, as here they are: I planted 6 cascade this year, but the cones seem to be mainly coming from a single plant that did very well.

    2009 Hop garden picture thread.

    Here are some pictures of my first year cascade plants. I am in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, and these plants came from Richters. I planted 6 plants in this corner, and they all seem to be doing well, with one doing better then the others and climbing to 10 feet or so (though the stakes I have in...
