American IPA with 8oz of Hops

Chinook x2
Centennial x3
Cascade x3

Right on I use the Free Hop method with a hop catch myself. 

Interesting to see some of the different ideas though.

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

Just curious?

Thanks.. I'm going to roast them, chop them and then add them to the mash.  I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

There were some really nice brews at the GABF and some of the brewers had different opinons.  I was just hoping someone had some luck on a homebrew level.

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?

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.

The Ginger I got at the Brew shop was not ground but it was in small dried chunks.  It's the cool thing about this hobby.  Experimentation!!  LOVE IT!

So I decided to use .5oz of Dried Ginger Root I bought at my local homebrew shop for my 5 gal batch of Saison.  I added it at 15min and left it in the Primary for 2 weeks before racking to the secondary.  WOW the Ginger flavor is HUGE!  It's way more than I was looking for.  What could I have done different?

I was looking for subtle tones of Ginger not IN YOUR FACE GINGER!

Also, it completely took away the amazing notes the WYEAST 3711 gives to the nose of the brew.

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!


I'm brewing my 3rd batch of the Saison I'm working on.  I'm adding 2 new additions:  Corriander Seed and Belgian Candy Sugar.

Kegging and Bottling / Beer Labels?

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?
