Ingredients / Most Floral Hops
« on: February 23, 2011, 07:17:09 PM »
I am putting together a recipe for the weekend and I'd like to replicate a beer I had at a club meeting.  The guy made a fantastic pale ale with an extremely floral nose to it.  So much so I could not take my nose out of the  beer.  I have not seen the guy since.

What is your guess at to what variety(s) he may have used?

Beer Recipes / Timing of fruit additions
« on: December 10, 2010, 03:28:41 PM »
I am not a big fan of fruit in my beer but my wife did make a request.  I thought since the last 100 beers were for me I can concede this one time. 

The idea is using a pale ale as a base and adding fresh pineapple.  My question is when do I add it?  I was thinking 75% during the last 15min of the boil then the rest post fementation for 5 days. 

Yeast and Fermentation / Temperature and yeasts

I usually have a nice window this time of year to brew with the temps falling in Philly.  The problem is my basement is not cooperating this year.  It has been constantly at 76 degrees.  I have plans to do a Strong ale and an Amber, similar to Red Seal.  Do I   1. Put my fementer outside after the sun goes down and bring it in during the day? or 2. Is there a yeast that works better at hight temps?
