    I forgot to take my OG

    That worked pretty good, thanks for the tip. I came up with 1.060 - 1.055, so I am somewhere in the 4.5 to 5% range.

    Cigar City Jai Alai White Oak Aged IPA

    It's a top 5 beer for me. An outstanding beer, the oakey flavors at so subtle and really balance with the hops.

    Best Brewers Festival for Vacation?

    I would think the Great American Beer Festival in Denver would be the one to attend.

    I actually never liked beer!

    Fermenting at 75+ degrees?

    This describes my situation precisely. Brewnow> that is what I did. Should be ready to drink in two weeks and it smelled amazing when I bottled it. I want to brew a Octoberfest style with ale yeast but I feel like the temp should be lower on that.

    Fermenting at 75+ degrees?

    I live in FL and it simply cannot get cool enough in the summer to ferment my beers below 75 degrees. My beer tastes good, but I can't help to wonder if they would taste better if they fermented at a cooler temperature. What are some of your experiences with fermentation temperature?

    Brewer's Best Oktober Fest

    It says the kit can be brewed like an ale. Anyone have any experience with this particular kit? It was a gift, so I think I'm going to try is anyway but I wanted some of your thoughts. Thanks. :mug:

    What is your favorite Hops?

    Well both beers are very good. The Sorichi(sp) hops definitely have a citrus aroma and flavor. It's fun to take both beers side by side and get the taste difference.

    What is your favorite Hops?

    I am just about ready to drink my PA that I made with sorichi (sp) hops. I used the same recipe for grain, yeast, and whatnot but I switched up the hops to see what the difference will be. I'm looking forward to drinking both types of PA side by side to taste the difference. What are some of...
