    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    This one is finally good to go. I ended up dry hopping at the tail end of fermentation with 1 oz. of CTZ and 2 oz. of CTZ Lupomax. Then after a 48 hour soft crash dry hopping with 6 oz. Galaxy, 4 oz. Nelson, and 2 oz. Mosaic Cryo. At a little over 6%, this is one hoppy IPA. Super earthy, strong...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Has anyone used ALDC with success on the home brewing scale yet? I’m tired of getting diacetyl bombs even after passing forced VDK tests (or so I thought) so I’m willing to try it out to hopefully solve the issue. I didn’t have it when I pitched the yeast so I just added some with the first dry...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Going with @Noob_Brewer hopping schedule for today’s unscheduled brew day. I have a ton of Columbus and Columbus Lupomax and got a pound of Galaxy a couple months ago from the YVH hop sale. My homebrew shop was out of spelt (and Chit malt which would have been my sub) so I went with white wheat...

    I figured some of you might be interested to know that I ended up leaving the keg out at room temp for about a week and the diacetyl is gone as far as I can tell. I find myself searching for it now unfortunately and it might still have a hint but compared to what it was, this is MUCH better. Now...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I literally was about to order hops last week from them but figured I’d wait until this week to see what they were going to put on sale. Needless to say I’m stoked to get 2 times as much Galaxy for the same price I would have paid last week. Especially since I just used up all of my Galaxy from...

    I know it can when dry hopping at fermentation temps, but I dropped out the yeast and did a soft crash before dry hopping at 55. I’ve done the same on my last two batches and didn’t have this issue. Even after passing a forced test.

    Yes, I did two on this batch as the first test failed. And I brought the beer down to 50F for 24 hours after passing the test and before dry hopping at 55. Not sure how this happened unless I was just dead wrong on the second test.

    Thanks for the info. This is definitely diacetyl. I’ve had it happen a couple of times in the past so I started doing diacetyl tests and thought this one was good, but it has that very distinct butterscotch aroma (the flavor hasn’t been too badly effected yet) that I can’t stand. Good to know...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    So the pictured beer is my newest NEIPA which I mentioned earlier. It was one of my best batches as of 2 days ago, and even after testing it twice before kegging, it has developed diacetyl as of yesterday. Have any of you ever had success with Krausening? Does it effect aroma and flavor...

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    I like to transfer as little trub as possible into my fermzilla, then I throw it in the fermentation fridge for like an hour and then remove the remaining trub that collected in the collection jar at the bottom. That usually takes care of most of it. Then I just sanitize the jar, put in the...

    It is based on the Verdant recipe and Brew Father says it’s 4.3 SRM. I used Mosaic, Sabro, and Galaxy in the dry hop incase you were wondering as I know different hops can add more “haze” than others.

    I read through the blog, awesome job btw, and was curious what beer you liked best? I have been tempted to do something like #1 but have heard negative things about early dry hopping such as the beer not having stable haze and possibly creating more hop burn, but it looks like I’ll have to try...

    Any info for me guys? Do you dry hop after passing a forced diacetyl test? Do you have to do another forced diacetyl test after dry hopping too? Any help on this question would be greatly appreciated!

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    How are you guys dry hopping at the tail end of fermentation? Any time I have done that, I end up with a diacetyl bomb. I have just been soft crashing then dry hopping at about 55 for a couple of days with rousing and that has worked well enough, but I want to try doing a warmer dry hop on my...

    Done and delicious! I can’t wait to try the next hop combo!

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    My latest batch is cold crashing and carbing but I couldn’t help myself. This bag of Idaho 7 I got from YVH is crazy strong. Super musty pineapple. I have 6 oz. of Lupomax Citra, 1 oz. of Citra Cryo, and 1.35 oz. of t90 Citra in the dry hop, while only having 3 oz. of Idaho 7 in there and it’s...
