    Wet Hop Recipe!!!

    I'm curious how this will turn out. I just brewed a batch on friday using a hopshot for bittering, hop pellets during the boil at around 20min , and then whirlpooled about 12 ounces of wet cascade hops straight from the vine. I didn't bag the wet hops, but was planning to rack this batch to a...

    Primary is done, rack to secondary or just dry hop in the primary?

    I appreciate all the feedback. Just for my own sanity would you all agree that this final gravity is 1.012? Or should I be reading the meniscus which looks to be maybe 1.014? When I checked the OG it was somewhere near 1.072 at it's peak, meniscus might be 1.074. I'm just not sure how to get the...

    Primary is done, rack to secondary or just dry hop in the primary?

    I doubt I'll do that, but it's good to keep as a game day decision if things are looking too murky.

    Primary is done, rack to secondary or just dry hop in the primary?

    That's a good idea. So basically dry hop in the primary but before racking to bottles transfer it to a secondary first.

    Primary is done, rack to secondary or just dry hop in the primary?

    Thanks, this is good to know. I'm working on a heady topper clone so I'm glad you had good results with the Double Sunshine. I doubt it's going to be like heady but it should still be tasty. I haven't tried Double Sunshine yet, but if you want to trade recipes I'm game.

    Primary is done, rack to secondary or just dry hop in the primary?

    I've gone both routes before and have had ok results both ways. I'm brewing an IPA that uses a total of 11 ounces of hops, so in this case I'm thinking that racking to a secondary may be beneficial to clear it up. Any thoughts? (I'd prefer to just throw the dry hop addition into the primary, but...

    Notty yeast advice

    BigFloyd, thanks a lot for the response. I'll take your advice and keep the temp where it's at. I don't believe it ever got about 70, most likely not above 68. I got a 70 reading 1 time but it was probably because I just opened a duct vent that was directly above the primary. I closed it and it...

    Notty yeast advice

    Just curious, if it gets warmer than 67 what should one expect in the long run? In my case, with my starting temp closer to 63, and slowly rising during active fermentation, should I expect poor results? Is there anything I should do about this now such as find a way to drop the temp from it's...

    Notty yeast advice

    I'm in a similar situation. I brewed an IPA this past sunday and closed the primary around midnight, using nottingham ale yeast. I didn't see activity for about 24 hours, but tuesday morning until around 3PM today my airlock was really active. I have a video of it at it's peak if you want to...

    Adding water after fermentation has started

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I think I'll just leave it alone. My main concern is that the taste will be off. I guess I was thinking if I were to add any water, do it now so that I'm maximizing the amount of time with the correct volume. I completely understand it tasting slightly watered...

    Adding water after fermentation has started

    Last night I started a new extract brew. Almost 24 hours later the airlock is showing activity, but I just noticed that my primary bucket is filled to the 5 gallon line, not the 5 1/4 gallon line like it should have been. It was a late night last night when I was adding water to my wort, and I...
