General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Cryo Hops, more varieties?

Denny, I listened to the YCH guy interview. The cyro makes sense but I must have missed what the use was for debit-leaf. Sarcasm would make me guess you'd use that to add a vegetal flavor, but I bet that's not it at all.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: First time lagering

Or pitch an active starter to wort with plenty of O2 in it. Easy peasy

By the way, forgive any nit pickery tone here... lager is a yeast strain, lagerING is cold storage conditioning.

Seems like I heard some guy, randy something... say that combos are good when hunting real chocolate flavor. Like nibs and cholaca and etc.

Just had one tonight. This is a good vintage.

So, does this qualify as a Red IPA or just plain American IPA according to BJCP?

Good either way. Just something I think about.

A classic example of American IPA.
Thanks Denny! Now I can name an IPA that I can enjoy more than one of.

So unsweetened then? And do a small sample to taste then scale up?

Anyone have experience they'd like to Share? I assume the unsweetened stuff is what we want, and guessing about 4 oz per gallon, added to last 5 min of boil. If I try it it will be in an imperial stout and I would want it at the noticeable level, somewhere between hint and dominated,  lol.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Brett bottling
« on: November 10, 2017, 05:34:42 AM »
Brett "can" go to 1.000 but I've had it finish at 1.010 before. The problem is that it's slow, and "can" stall and restart. Age won't hurt it fortunately,  so just make sure you take two separate final gravity samples about 6 weeks apart that end up being identical before you bottle. And I believe in heavy Belgian glass rather than worrying about thin glass exploding in my hand...

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Secondary Fermentation
« on: November 05, 2017, 10:26:26 PM »
Opinion:

When it's done it's done. Merely moving it to another vessel doesn't start more fermentation.

Reasons to transfer to a second vessel are

To add a second fermentable

To remove the finished beer from the yeast cake, and then add something unfermentable such as dry hops, wood, etc

To remove the finished beer from the primary yeast and then add another type of "yeast" like Brett, or bugs

To remove the finished beer from the yeast cake in order to let it "age" away from all that spent yeast before it autolyses.

I would not use a secondary on a typical imperial stout

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Canned Starter Wort
« on: November 05, 2017, 05:59:31 PM »
Shelf life ought to be years... the way you know they are still good is that the lid will still be sealed. Sucked down on jar, not popped up. Just push down on the lid, if it flexes it's bad.

What if an AHA member just wanted to show up for club night?

Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

I don't recall if you can just buy club night or if you have to do the whole social package.

I don't think they've done alacarte events for a few years now. It's all social package or go home.
That's what I was thinking. It's all going to depend on what's available when the vacation schedule comes around. The nice part about it being in Portland is that you don't have to waste money on a room. Just crawl in any of the thousands of tents on the sidewalks. If you bring beer it shouldn't be a problem.

Hey Jim! Glad to hear all is well.
Life is great, Phil. Good to be back though. The cold weather has my pilot light lit for brewing again. Actually snowed here today.

Good to hear from you Jim.

I bought my salmon stamp for the second year in a row an just can't get out to the lake.

Maybe a good thing as the fishermen in the lagoon found a couple duffle bags full of someone last week. Glad that wasn't me. In the bag or finding it.
I'm soooo glad I don't live there, lol
