Yeah, used to buy a fair amount of their Dort Gold. They've expanded at the expense of delivering quality IMO.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Black IPA, Citra and Mosaic?
« on: November 16, 2017, 05:14:41 AM »
If the dark moss hides the tropical taste, then perhaps tropical is not the way to go. I am planning a black IPA next week and have chosen hops to stay away from tropical or citrus flavors, and am going for earthy, piney and dank flavors instead because I think they will work better with the dark roasted flavors. I love Citra but am going with Columbus, Simcoe and Chinook on this one.

I did a black IPA last year, and went for earthy/piney/dank (Chinook, Galena, and Cascade)--it definitely played better with the dark malts. I fear that the super fruity/citrusy hops (such as Citra or Mosaic) would just clash with the rest of the beer.


I like the piney dank hops in a black IPA best as well.

Not a fan of hoppy beers on nitro. Nitro is all about texture and mouthfeel. The thick foam chokes off the aroma.


Agreed.

That's what I'm running now and have been pretty happy with it.

It’s remarkable how food can invoke such strong memories. The places visited, childhood, relationships, etc.

No doubt. Edible nostalgia.

I'm a big fan of Old Chub, too, but really like DB as well. Traquair is still my fave and IIRC still year round as Denny said. Could be wrong.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Soy sauce stout
« on: November 07, 2017, 10:26:07 AM »
Soy Sauce flavor could be Autolysis.  Just because your house stays at those temps doesn't mean it's fermenting at those temps.  Fermentation creates heat.  Your dry yeast could have been a little on the old side too.

  But at 13 days from pitch to rack?  Seems a bit quick to be autolysis... any number of issues may be combining here...


I don't disagree, under normal circumstances with healthy yeast. I've just always associated a meaty, soy character to autolysis. Obviously it doesn't normally show up this fast - just thought if the yeast were old/in subpar shape, combined with trying to ferment a big beer with a warm ferment could have thrown yeast related off flavors, even autolysis if the yeast were old enough. Other factors may well have contributed.

Will keep you posted.

Just had to fermenter prime my Big Old Ale as I missed the spund completely. 1.103 OG down to 1.030 in under 3 days!  WTF!

Hoping to catch the BDSA in better fashion.

Whoa, damn. That is quick for a beer that big. Speaks to your yeast (and overall) process. I'd have thought maybe spund at 5 days on that beer. Wow.

Got a Belgian Dark Strong coming up on Friday. Working with Hoosier's tip on a WY 3787 and 1762 blend.

Curious to see what you think, Rob. They're complementary.

To be clear, the reason I sink the bag now is to keep it away from the Clear Beer float which draws from the top.
