General Homebrew Discussion / Lagunitas Imperial Red on hold
« on: March 17, 2010, 05:44:50 PM »
My brother emailed Lagunitas to see whan their Imperial Red will be distriubuted this year since it was not listed on their web site. The response he got was quite disturbing.

Apparently they are not brewing this for 2010 due to lack of demand. Personally, this is a top 5 beer of mine and am shocked to hear this. I could never get enough. Apparently, their "Little Sumpin' Sumpin' sold so well that they do not plan to brew this for 2010. A Little Sumpin' Extra I could MAYBE see, but I am still crushed. I understand that this is a business decision, but I am very suprised that it did not make the cut.

I plan to email Lagunitas to BEG them to produce this nectar this year. If anyone else feels the same way, please join me...please.


Yeast and Fermentation / Re-pitch?
« on: January 31, 2010, 09:14:18 AM »
I'm sure this has been done to death, but after 20+ brews, I am way off my target FG. I made a PM version of Denny's Waldo Lake Amber with Denny's yeast. The OG was 1.062 and fermented at about 68 degrees for 14 days. The target FG was 1.014 (according to Beer Smith) but the gravity yesterday was 1.023. I've never been this far off and didn't know if I should pitch some US-05, let sit for another week, or just rack to secondary and have a slightly sweeter beer than expected.

Any advice suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Ingredients / Adding a big malt flavor to beer
« on: January 24, 2010, 03:40:58 PM »
This may be a bit broad, but what grain would I add to a recipe to add a bigger malt flavor to a beer? I am currently doing partial mash brews and have about 20 brews under my belt. I have made many recipes which I enjoyed the result, but would have liked to have had a bigger malt flavor to some of them; mostly my Ambers and Red's. Any advice would be appreciated.
