So if I add something that tastes bitter to a solution, that solution will not taste bitter? I'm not sure I understand how that can happen. A hop pellet does not isomerize in my mouth, but it tastes very bitter

*not trying to by sarcastic, I'm just not sure understand the science at play here*

Hops taste bitter, whether they are isomerized or not. Eat a pellet and you'll know. So you may not add any IBU's doing FWH with no boil, but if you add hops you are adding bitterness

You won't need much for a Berliner anyway. Just off the top of my head, I'd add 1oz of a Magnum (or something neutral) to the FWH, should be good

Who cares if you're going to enter it in competition or not, that's why there's a Belgian speciality category.

I made a dark Saison with midnight wheat, carafa, chocolate rye & pale chocolate....it was awesome.....and still in the Saison realm

Wow!  That's a really big bottle of champagne!   ;)

Yeah, pliny the elder flavored champagne!

Have you ever had a "cham-pliny"? O'Briens pub in San Diego does a blend of champagne and Pliny the elder. Surprisingly really, really good....... Back to topic.

I made a Munich Helles this Morning, 95% Pils 5% munich. 7.5 gallons of 1.038 wort, wanted to get a 1.046 beer. I decided to boil" harder" to drive out DMS.....well, I boiled too hard and ended with a 1.052 beer :)

Ingredients / Re: Flavor/Aroma hops - adjust for AA% or no?
« on: May 07, 2012, 09:22:26 AM »
AA% doesn't factor in for flavor or aroma. Similar weight is a good way to start, and you'll have to adjust from there

I used a bunch in an IPA and enjoyed them very much. I see them as a mix of cascade & williamette, leaning more on the williamette side. I'm a big fan of williamette, so I dig these hops

Beer Recipes / Re: Is it CDA or BIPA?
« on: April 18, 2012, 05:28:35 PM »
As I see it, "American India" pale makes as much sense as black India pale ale. 

The acronym for India pale ale, IPA, has become it's own unique creature.

Thus I support Black IPA

So have I, my fiancée kinda hates me, but I've been in baseball heaven!

Events / Re: NHC - how much beer for clubs to bring?
« on: March 25, 2012, 10:57:23 PM »
Last year in San Diego, my club (SNAFU), brought 27 kegs. 10 were used (not all kicked, but used) on club night and the hospitality suite kicked 8 kegs. Our hospitality suite was right after club night however

Equipment and Software / Re: BetterBottle transport

The orange carboy caps fit the better bottles. I use them.

Their is a blue handle made for lifting better bottles, it works but the handle leans against the airlock and that is kinda obnoxious

I usually just pick them up and support the bottom to prevent sucking sani back through the airlock.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Re: AIPA...Aroma...BJCP
« on: March 15, 2012, 05:53:02 PM »
For the BJCP judges here, have you ever judged an AIPA that had too much, or too strong of a hop aroma?  Is it even possible for an AIPA to have too much hop aroma, as far as comps are concerned?

I could see an argument if the aroma didn't feature American hops or hops that can be considered/confused for American (like some New Zealand types)

Are you asking cause you were dinged for it, just curious?
