Realizing how interesting it is to taste and observe these beers side by side in the sampler glasses. The mineral aspects of the dort really pop and stand out in comparison after taking sip of the Pils . I also realize how pale yellow the Pils really is.

I struck out also. The competition is tough because all four of my entries were solid. Congrats to all who advanced.

I'm really liking them and they go well with the other hops. I used the Equinox at a higher proportion and it has a nice fruity flavor and aroma.

I love Equinox and I love Citra, but I didn't like them together that well. They kinda clashed to me. As the beer got older, it started getting better.

That amber pictured above was hopped with equal parts of Equinox, Simcoe, Columbus, and Centennial... It's a resinous dankity-dank bomb.... Seems like Equinox and Columbus would compliment each other greatly.
I like Citra, but I have learned from my own personal tastes that I like it in smaller proportions with other hops. Your combo sounds good.

My IPA with Equinox, Citra, Nugget, and Columbus.

I brewed a Munich Dunkel today. The gravity was a little high at 1.060.

Got my NHC entries beer gunned and ready to turn in today. Gotta like being able to hand carry to your LHBS, where I was going anyway.
That must be nice. I'm assuming that your drop-off is Indy. I sent mine there on Monday and they arrived on Tuesday. I like the fact that they're judging next weekend, so my beers won't be sitting around for awhile.

I really enjoy Sours and make one every couple of months. I could never just limit myself to "all sour" though because my BADD (Beer Attention Deficit Disorder) would not allow it.

If you plan on doing 5 gal batches, I'd opt for the 40 L cooler.

It is very good! Great aroma and flavor to match.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast fresh vs yeast repitch
« on: February 26, 2016, 03:22:23 PM »
A fellow homebrew friend offered many different samples of the same Pale Ale recipe with different generation yeast at a club meeting. The yeast used was US-05 from 1st pitch up to 10th generation repitch. I could not tell a difference among them. We did not do a triangle test and there were 5 different samples, but I couldn't tell a difference at all. Maybe a different yeast strain with less of a neutral profile would be more suitable for an experiment.

I like the fact that these experiments are leaving more questions to be answered.

You should try a cider with a packet of US05 before you give up. No esters obviously and makes a really nice, tart cider.
I've made them before with wine yeast and back sweetened. Those were much better. I was trying the beer yeast so I wouldn't have to back sweeten. Maybe, next time I will try US 05 for a cleaner profile. Failure is an opportunity.

I just dumped a hard cider that never came around.
That's funny, I nearly dumped a hard cider that DID come around a few days back because I never relabeled the keg from "Star San" to "Cider". I thought I had dumped it last summer. It was a happy surprise, except now I need to scrounge up another keg for my American Lager...
I used an English yeast and it just wasn't very drinkable. I decided to ice it (5 gal down to 2.5 gal) and all it did was intensify the nasty flavor and make it more undrinkable. I think I just have to accept the fact that I'm really not a cider guy.
