    First NEIPA - Hops schedule

    I agree with you. That was my personal touch. I like my NEIPAs to have a nice balance between juicy hops and bitterness. Thanks for the advice. I'll proceed with this recipe shortly.

    First NEIPA - Hops schedule

    Thanks for the quick reply. As I said, this was taken from an existing recipe that used 3 and 7 days dry hopping. I usually only do a single dry hopping addition 3 days before kegging my regular IPAs. So based on your comments, the hop schedule should look like this ? 0.55 oz Centennial @ 60...

    First NEIPA - Hops schedule

    Hi guys, Living in Canada, hops are pretty expensive. I was able to get good prices of bulk Citra and Amarillo. I'd like to create a juicy NEIPA recipe out of it but would also like my stock to last me for a couple of brew sessions. Based on a recipe I found online, I ajusted my hops schedule...

    Cacao Nibs and Coffee Beans Addition

    Thanks guys. I added the cacao nibs directly to my primary and will do the same with my coffee beans.

    Cacao Nibs and Coffee Beans Addition

    Hey guys, I brewed a White Stout last week and the recipe calls for cacao nibs and whole coffee beans addition after fermentation. I'm trying to skip the secondary part and I'm wondering how I can achieve this. Option #1 Adding nibs and coffee beans directly into primary after fermentation...

    bottling bucket - swamp cooler question

    There is no problem for the fermentation time, but I wouldn't use the spigot once you're done. I leave my fermenter in a water bath for 3 weeks and when I'm done, the fermenter is all slimy. That would be bad for the beer if you'd use the spigot.

    Why am I the only one who can taste this off taste?

    I'm also tasting it everytime I brew a batch. I really think it's due to aging time. That must be why people are saying to taste a brew after 6 months to see the difference. I now try to brew darker beers like Porter or Stouts. The little "cidery taste" is more noticable on lighter beers.

    Adding Ice to cool - BeerSmith

    I usually do full boils. That's why I was asking about it.

    Adding Ice to cool - BeerSmith

    I've read about it. But is it safe if I boil the water, starsan my containers and freeze it the night before ? I know that freezing it for a couple of month is bad but for 1 night... ?

    Adding Ice to cool - BeerSmith

    Hi guys, I really have a tough time cooling my wort rapidly and I'll try to add about a gallon of ice to help the process. I was wondering how do I implement that change into BeerSmith so I do not end up with a diluted wort. Do I simply leave the Batch Size to 5.5G (my usual batch size)...

    How's this for a Cream Ale Recipe?

    The best Cream Ale recipe out there must be BierMuncher's one if you want to take a look. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f62/cream-three-crops-cream-ale-66503/

    Fruits in secondary...shake carboy ?

    I just left it at the bottom but finally got a nice fruits krausen after 24 hours. Now my next question, how do you guys filter the beer from the fruit puree when kegging/bottling ? Will the fruits krausen will fall back at the bottom like a regular yeast's krausen ? Thanks,

    Fruits in secondary...shake carboy ?

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I'll let it stand that way and see how it turns out ! Cheers ! :mug:

    Fruits in secondary...shake carboy ?

    Hi all, I've just racked my beer on 5 lbs of peaches puree. I thought that the puree would mix with the beer while transferring it from the primary but the puree stood at the bottom of the carboy. Do I have to leave it that way or should I shake my carboy to mix the puree completely with...

    Two 5 Gallon Pots

    Sorry, I would like to tell you but even I am shocked that I get that efficiency most of the time. I try to keep my temperature as accurate as possible during the mash. I crush my grains directly at the LHBS using their mill, maybe that has something to do with it but I'll never know...

    Two 5 Gallon Pots

    I do mash the grains needed for a 5.5 G batch (approx. 12 - 13 lbs) and then split the wort equally in two 5 G pots for boiling. All you need to do is split the hops equally. As for the efficiency, I'm hitting around 90% so I don't think that the split pot method is affecting it. Also, I find...

    Transfer to secondary question

    In my opinion, you should wait until the fermentation as stopped. I rack to secondary only for clearing purposes when needed. Otherwise, I leave it for about 3 weeks in the primary before bottling. Hope this'll help !

    Fruits effect on SG

    Hi all, I'm planning to brew Jamil's Magic Hat #9 clone on my next brew day. Since my LHBS doesn't carry Apricot extract, I'm planning to use canned fruits. I've read a couple of threads saying to be careful because the sugar in the fruits will affect the final ABV. How exactly can I...

    Infection ?

    Good thing to know, this is exactly what I've used. And I used 2 packs like it says on it since I was doing a cold fermentation. Did it settle at the bottom at some point or did you had it until the bottling/kegging ?
