    Traveling to Buffalo

    Hi everyone! I'll be visiting Buffalo in a couple weeks. Is there any brewerys that are a must visit? I like all beer styles but I'm definitely a hop head whether they're fruity and juicy or dank and piney. Any feedback would be much appreciated. 🍻

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    You should get a longer hose and run the used water into your washing machine if you have one. :mug:

    Cloning Troegs Brewing Blizzard of Hops

    Will you be posting you nugget nectar video in a thread? If so let me know! My next brew will be your north of the wall IPA but I'll be doing all grain. I'll let you know how it goes but I might be a couple weeks till I brew again.

    Cloning Troegs Brewing Blizzard of Hops

    Thank you so much for the quick response! I saw you couldn't get galaxy so you used Ella, did you use only 1 oz? I thought it would have more hops in it but I'll try it. I cant get galaxy either so I was thinking maybe citra or Amarillo. I tried to clone nugget nectar once but it wasn't that...

    First BIAB brew - a few questions

    +1 on double grinding at the lhbs as I did this for a while and it helped. Also it's not high tech but if you wrap a old thick comforter or blanket around your pot it'll help with your mash temps. Even in the dead of winter I only lose 3-5 degrees which is good enough for me since majority of...

    Washing yeast?

    I don't brew meads or wines but I do beer with some liquid yeast. I buy hops and grain in bulk and then make an oversized starter and harvest off of that for many generations I'm looking at $15-20 a normal batch and $30 for a hoppy NE IPA. Can't beat that price for someone who has more time...

    Treehouse Style IPA's

    I see everyone talking about flaked wheat and oats but in mine I use flaked barley, oats and malted wheat. Any reason not to do this and what difference would I be getting? Thanks in advance!

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Yes you need some base malt to convert the oats. If your that worried about a stuck mash, you could always do a partial mash on your stove with a paint strainer bag.

    Optimum Wyeast 1318 London Ale III Fermentation Temp for NEIPA?

    I think that would be a great comparison especially with summer around the corner. I'm fermenting my third batch now with 1318 and I'm trying mid to low 60s for 3 days then letting it rise to 67ish. Keep us updated if you do the split batch!!

    No they're the oldest brewery in America and yes they are craft. They make their pale lager that is a great beer and it's only $17 a case, you can't beat it. They have also started trying different beer such as they're summer wheat and Indian pale lager. They probably don't want to deal with...

    American Pale Ale Summer Citra Cerveza

    Well I tried my first couple a week and a half after bottling and while the Amarillo version is good the citra was better. Grant it it wasn't quite fully carbed up and was young but the Amarillo gave it a fruity dankness that was good but a hoppy citrus is what I prefer. I'll probably make...
