    Lack of Bitterness?!

    Hey Everyone, My main mission on this last DIPA was to achieve hop flavor. I have been able to have very bitter beers, some being way to bitter, even for my taste. So I really wanted to achieve the hop flavor and thick mouth-feel from the resins in the hops. Below is my recipe to my last...

    Beer Glassware

    Hey Everyone, As a very generous present, I received a trip to pick out beer glassware. I already have a very nice Tulip glass that I use daily. The thing is, I use this for sours, stouts, IPA's and everything in between. I don't mind this, but with this present I have the opportunity to...

    Original Gravity Question

    Hey Everyone, I am a 1 gallon extract brewer for now (will move up to 5 gallons when I have my own space to brew), and I just brewed an IIPA yesterday. My measured original gravity should have been 1.085 and I missed the mark slightly but 1.083. But I ended up coming out with only about .8th...

    Adding water after boil, before primary fermentation

    I am new to home brewing and am having a blast. My third batch (IIPA) is happily fermenting away. I am using extract kits and only doing 1 gallon batches to begin, to make things less complicated to start. On my last batch I made a few days ago, I added a lot of hops. Due to the hops...

    How long to dry hop for?

    I brewed a single hop Citra last night, and want to dry hop it to get as much Citra flavor as possible. I know Citra has very high alpha acid %'s, but this wouldn't effect dry hopping correct? Any recommendations on how long to dry hop for before I bottle? Cheers!!

    What should beer taste like afte 2 weeks?

    Hey everyone, I am new to this whole brewing thing but I absolutely love it. I brewed an IPA 2 weeks ago and just bottled it. Of course I tried a taste to get an idea of what it would be like and I was surprised. I got a lot of bitterness (which I like) some malty flavors (also not bad)...
