    NEIPA Hops?

    To brew a killer NEIPA, one needs big, juicy hop aromas and flavors. I have heard a few brewers describe what they call "base" or "dominant" or "banger" hops that form the structure and big flavor that the other hops can layer upon. Examples: Citra Mosaic Simcoe Galaxy Strata Nelson Sauvin...

    Hey everyone, I'm brand new to homebrewing and decided to purchase the Northern Brewers Homebrew Starter Kit which came with a Chinook IPA kit.

    Diacetyl from bottling

    Hey guys, This is now the second batch that I have noticed this, so I’m just curious if I’m starting to go crazy or not. I’ve brewed two batches a little while ago, both are partial mash. First one being an ipa and second being a neipa style with fruit additions. Both were amazing in the keg...

    SRM mystery

    I've been working on a single-hop citra IPA recipe, and something really strange happened with my latest iteration. I'm aiming for a lovely pale straw color, and my brewing software said that the SRM for this last batch should be 2. Somehow, it has come out much, much darker; between 8 and 9. My...

    Best Cheap Hop Combos

    I've been intrigued about hop combos and their biotransformations ever since I heard Stan Hieronymus speak about them. Using nugget and chinook in the whirl pool and/or dry hop produce something much fruitier/tropical than either on their own. I've tried it and it seems to be true. Has anyone...

    Fun, consistent cider recipies from kits

    I've been experimenting with using kits to make tasty and fun ciders with consistent results (as the concentrates are rather consistent in flavour). I've mainly been using Mangrove Jacks Craft Series Apple Cider and Mangrove Jacks Craft Series Pear Cider. As far as I can see, these can be bought...

    Am i maximizing the potential of these hops?

    I brewed a NE (or double) IPA that came out really good. This one was done with partial mash and extract and was the 4th beer i brewed. This was also the first beer i brewed with my own hop bill. I'd like to try this one again with my own all grain bill and using the lessons i learnt but because...
