We lose power so many times during most winters that it's become SOP for me to fill a few kegs with water. We have a well, so no power=no water.
One of the most important things is the mop and bucket.
I was given 4 oz of 2011 NZ Rakau hops last week. Does it play well with C hops? What is the best use for it?
It's in the same vein as Cascade, but I got some weird savory notes when I brewed a single-hop IPA with it (the malt bill may have contributed to that though). I think it would work with any of the usual suspects for IPA's, such as C hops, Citra, Simcoe, etc.
Out of curiousity what would be the effect of pitching at too high but dropping the temp over time? I know this is bad practice. I don't as much control over my beers as I would like right now due to a different location and brewing partner...long story...
Why is using the dishwasher a better idea that Starsan? Seems much faster to just submerge in a bucket for a couple of minutes.Got it, so people are using dishwashers to sanitize in place of a product like Star San.
Bingo. Like it was mentioned before, just make sure your dishwasher has a true "Sanitize" setting. Hot water isn't hot enough to kill any bugs.
