Beer Travel / Re: Chicago Half Day
« on: May 14, 2016, 09:29:27 AM »
While I know the OP meant Half Acre I thought I'd throw out the fact that there is a new Half Day Brewing Company that opened on Half Day Road (RTE 22) in Lincolnshire by Milwaukee Ave. Used to be Flatlanders. The beer and food are pretty darn good

Turned out way better than just using acidulated malt!

Awesome....how long did you let it sit?
3 days at 90oF, pH dropped to 4.0, nice and tart

I plan on brewing this in a couple weeks and will report back, if you give this a try I would love to hear your results, my first batch was a very good beer, I anticipate these changes and proper sour method to greatly improve this!

I know I'm two years late, but I was curious how this compared to using the acidulated malt? Was your lacto souring method more successful?

Beer Recipes / Re: Jack fruit ale

Never brewed with it, but tasted it, and was not really impressed.  And you're right, it's a bear to deal with.

Go with the light ale as you figured, but back off on the hops to let the fruit flavors come in better.  An American wheat would be the first thing to come to mind, but just about any low hopped blonde beer would work fine.
Will, after spending almost an hour extracting all the meat and pits from this  thing I decided that its not worth trying to put this in a beer. The overall flavor was not worth the effort.

The ladies are looking at cocktail recipes

Beer Recipes / Jack fruit ale
« on: May 04, 2016, 05:40:31 PM »
Anybody ever brew a beer with Jack Fruit from Asia?

Neighbor got one and while a huge PITA to get the meat it tastes like a blend of pineapple, mango and banana, not sweet and kind of dense.

Thinking a session ale with a secondary, with aroma flavor hops that emulate similar flavors for dry hop and late additions.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Foaming problems.

Could also be a bit of hop debris somewhere or dirty taps causing nucleation sites resulting in foamy pours

That's normal. Not sure why it needs to stay in secondary for months

What style of beer is it? Unless its some kind of specialty beer that needs extended time, package that sucker up!

All Grain Brewing / Re: 55% Efficiency after Batch Sparge

All great advice so far, the only add I have is to ensure your hydrometer or refractometer are properly calibrated as well

Justin, you might be better off speaking to actual hop farm growers, not breweries.

Hops grow 16-20' so vertical space limitations are something to consider. Weather conditions play a big role in hop productions so this is certainly intriguing, at least I think so:)

Best Bitter 3
3 gallons 1048 OG-1018 SG
94% Golden Promise
5% Medium Crystal
1% Pale Chocolate
25 IBU Willamette @ 60
7 IBU Willamette @ 10
Amber Balanced water
Mangrove Jacks Burton Union yeast



Very nice beer.  Really like the bitterness up front. Caramel with a very slight nuttiness. Not as dry as style description. But not really sweet either. I had a bad day mash temp wise. Came in pretty high. Stirred down to 155F and let it ride hence the low attenuation. But overall I am going to enjoy drinking this keg.
Not only looks but sounds like a nice bitter
