When brewing IPA's with large pellet hop additions do you  use Socks?

Just curious?

Ingredients / Pecan Additions???
« on: October 19, 2013, 08:29:40 PM »
Looking to brew another version of a Pumpkin Ale with some Maple Syrup and Pecans.

Has anyone had luck with Pecan additions and if so when and how did you add them for the most flavor?

Ingredients / Honey in a Heffe?
« on: March 10, 2013, 02:57:29 PM »
Alright guys, next week I'm going to attempt a clone of a local DFW beer call Revolver Blood and Honey.  It is an American Wheat style beer with Blood Orange Zest, Local Honey and spices.  I've got the spice and Orange down but have never used Honey in a brew. 

I'm looking for a strong honey aroma with a nice recognizable honey finish.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

It will be a 5 gal batch. 


General Homebrew Discussion / Mailing Beers???

I would like to mail a few of my homebrews to a friend in Denver to get his feedback.  I think it's against better judgement to mail it via Postal Service.  What have you guys done in the past to ship your brews?

Thanks again for the advice!

Do any of you guys print beer labels for your brew?  If so what websites do you reccomend or other ideas that might work.

I was lucky enough to grab a bottle in Ft. Worth a few weeks ago and thinking about putting it in the Cellar?  My question is when will it mature?  How long have you guys cellered past vintages of The Abyss?

Why are they using these yeast below instead of a Saison Yeast?

Ingredients / Fresh Ginger or Dry Ginger??

My question is what are the main differences?  Which do you guys prefer to use?  Will one get more flavor than the other?

I'm looking to add some ginger and Corriander to a Saison I'm working on and want to develop some depth of flavor.
