    Dry hopping a wheat ale

    I brewed a very simple wheat ale and added 1 oz of orange zest to the boil. I have some citra hops available and I was wondering if I should throw some in there to dry hop. Since its a wheat I'm not sure if this is wise. Anyone have experience dry hopping a wheat? Thanks

    Beers in England/France

    I'm traveling to Paris and London in a few weeks for vacation and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on beers I need to try. I'm not too hopeful about the Paris selection but I'm sure there are some English beers I need to try or even some bottles to bring back. Anyone have suggestions??

    I need help with Ipa

    I am brewing an ipa this weekend highlighting citra. It's a 3 gallon batch with .25 oz citra at 15, 10, 5, and flameout. I want to use simcoe as well but not over power the citra flavor/ aroma. Any ideas on when to add it? Thanks

    Active fermentation but no airlick activity

    So I brewed 2.5 gallons on Friday and I know fermentation is occurring bc I can see it but there has been no airlock activity. It's in a bucket and the lid is tight and secure so I'm pretty sure there is no leak. Could it be that it's 2.5 gallons in a 5 gallon bucket? Any thoughts? Thanks

    Pale ale or ipa using citra

    Anyone have a really good extract APA or IPA recipe using citra, simcoe, and/or Amarillo. I have plenty of simcoe but only a couple of ounces of the other two. I really want to use the citra since I have never brewed with it so I want to use it in combo with one or both of the other two. Ideas?

    I'm brewing an Amarillo pale ale extract kit tomorrow that came with Muntons dry yeast. I know nothing about it and there is little info on the packet. I was wondering if I should be safe and use something I'm more familiar with like safale 04 or 05? Any suggestions? Thanks
