    West Coast IPA recipe

    Hey thanks for replying. I feel more comfortable with my recipe yup I already had made my water adjustment and for sure adding some gypsum. in regards cold side oxidation, I will ferment in a close vessel and move the beer though CO2.

    @bransona the flavor is kind of yeasty and citursy. i am assuming that this is because of the orange pill and coriander i use for this wit beer. the flavor seems very unbalance and cannot say it tastes like a witbier.

    Connected my plate chiller to the shower

    Connected my plate chiller to the shower
