I whipped up this over the weekend ....thoughts ?   Only 31 days until pitchers and catchers report  ;D

Big Phoppy IPA

5 gallon batch
8oz Caravienne
8oz Gambrinus Honey
8oz Carahelle
25 mins @ 155 deg

6lbs Pilsen LME
1 lb Light DME
1 lb rice syrup solids

1oz  Citra 60 mins
1oz  Citra 45 mins
1oz  Ahtanum 28 mins
1oz Cascade 15 mins
1oz Cascade 5 mins

Just worked this out on paper and haven't run it through Brewsmith so I don't have any estimates only concern is the hops I don't know if I have enough to hit IPA IBU levels. I have used Citra, Cascade and Amarillo in the past with very good results I really like their flavor profile , just couldn't get any Amarillo so I subbed the Ahtanum.  

Equipment and Software / Better Bottle Failure
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:43:25 PM »
I just bottled my Sam Smith Taddy Porter clone and when I was rinsing my better bottle ( secondary ) and noticed a crack in the bottom of the bottle. Yes I know about the tennis ball trick BUT this was my secondary all I did was rack to it and hook up my brew hauler and carry it to the basement where it sat for a few weeks. Luckily the crack wasn't enough to jepordize the integrity of the beer. But I have the bottle out in the recycle bin because I can't use it again. I have one more better bottle and one glass carboy that I can still use for secondaries.

Anyone else have these issues with the Better Bottles. ??? ???

I justed wanted to say hello and say that I am new to the forum and have been brewing for @ 1 year and 6 mos. now. Started with Mr. Beer and have moved into extract and partial mash , no all grain yet and have three 5 gallon fermentors and secondaries. I have six , five gallon batches under my belt with the majority of last year using the Mr.B kits.

Anyway hope to use this as a resource to improve and grow my brewing skills.

Yeast and Fermentation / Servomyces Yeast Nutrient
« on: June 07, 2011, 08:23:38 PM »
I just used this on Sunday night for the first time , I put the whole capsule in with 10 mins left in the boil but it didn't seem to want to dissolve. So I took it out tossed it and put a new one in splitting the capsule open and dumping the ingredients in. This is gonna sound stupid but what is the right way to add this supplment?
