General Homebrew Discussion / Re: dry hopping, a question.....
« on: June 15, 2010, 03:38:17 PM »
I saw the note about drinking the IPA very soon after brewing to preserve all of that good hoppiness.  I find a 3 month wait improves my IPA's. In fact the a history of IPA says it was thought not to be as good as the brittish ales it was inspired by. After the long trek to India the unusaully large for the style hops, (used to preserve it for the travel) mellowed and gave it its unique flavor. I have IPA's that are 5 months old and they are better than ever. So hopefully you will have awesome beer for the party. My standard IPA is over 85 IBU's, with a Ruination clone in at 136. By the way the sales operations manager for Alaska Brewing Company (John Blakley) tells me the human palate is good up to about 105 IBU's after that it is overkill. I am not sure but I do like hops!!!!!

I have been trying to get the right water ie. consistent water for a few brews now. I have settled on bottled Kona water from the ocean depths. It is loaded with minerals and I add a little gypsum to it. Anyone else try this. It is not cheap. I can get 50 ounces of it for 1.30. That takes about 13 bottles for  a 5 gallon batch.

I was not planning to drink all 12 at once. I thought 1 at the appropriate time  and a few other regular beers!

Has anyone tried to disolve viagra prior to bottling in the primer? I am thinking about 600mg in the primer to 140 ounces of beer. Prime then bottle a 12 pack of my Pup Tent Pale Ale. (patent Applied for) Of course this is my prescription so I woould have to consume all of the beer to keep it legal.
