Re: Brut ipa

When I was in the Navy and a kid just out of boot camp would report for duty I'd ask if I could give his cologne a try, claiming that it was new to me. When the newbie would hand it over I'd take a swig, smile, and tell him it was pretty good.

Re: Brut ipa

The White Labs product is for during the mash. There are others that are designed for the fermenter. Each has it's own place. Which brings up the question, "can it be done without enzymes?" I recently did a brown ale with nottingham yeast that went from 1.050 to 1.007. I wonder how close to "brut F...

Re: Dry yeast reuse

FWIW I read a post claiming that once you ferment a batch with dry yeast you can reuse it just like liquid yeast.

Re: 16g co2 bulbs

I use a 6L Tap-a-draft bottle that I prime to carbonate and it goes through two 16g cartridges.

I bottled this on Monday: yummy 😋.
And on Tuesday I brewed a batch of IBUless hazy session IPA that I'll be serving at a brewfest downtown on the fifth of July. This will be the first year that homebrewers will be included.

I recently got the go ahead from the editor of Zymurgy to do a Last Drop piece on no-boil brewing for the Nov/Dec issue.

Re: Guiness clone (aka Dirty Badger)

I recently did a no-boil extract stout that came out very Guinness like. I cold steeped 8 ounces of roast barley, 4 ounces of caraffa II, and 4 ounces of blackprinz overnight. But stupidly left the cold steep out of the fridge at room temperature inadvertently doing a mini sour mash. It's actually p...

Like all UK hops, Admiral is quite muted compared to nearly all the US, Australian or New Zealand hops.
I like admiral, sometimes muted is the way to go.

Re: Oooooooops!!!!!

It will fade. I did a piece for Zymurgy last year about recreating British beers from 200 years ago. One that I did was a 188 IBU ipa. It was pretty much undrinkable at first. I bottled it after bulk aging it for nine months and it was pretty good.

Re: No boil brewing.

If you use extracts you can do no-boil easily and make good beer.

Re: No boil?

We celebrated my wife's birthday on Monday and she is doing way better.
I also bottled the batch of stout April 26.
