Beer Travel / Re: 6 Beers for your state...
« on: November 10, 2018, 08:21:18 PM »
Read Alworths article (below), and really liked the idea.

https://www.beervanablog.com/beervana/2018/11/8/six-beers-to-represent-your-state

If you made a 6 pack to epitomize (not sure if you can use this as a verb, but I'm on the internet) your state, what would you choose?

Illinois
Revolution Antihero-tasty, with various single hop variations. A nice IPA
Triptych Dank Meme-A great NEIPA, best in state that's widely available
Goose Island Matilda-I kind of feel you have to acknowledge GI to some degree, and I'd rather do it with Matilda or Sofia than one of eight BCS
Riggs American Lager- A great lager, made with corn and barley grown on the Riggs farm. They've been working with U of I to identify the best brewing corn/wheat/rye/barley varieties for Illinois.
Bearded Kram Vossøl-A beautiful Norwegian farmhouse ale.
Destihl Here Gose Nothing-A tasty sour, amazing on a summer day.

Triptych makes some great beers.  I just picked up Parker.  It’s a porter.  Delicious.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: NEIPA Failure Brew - Need Opinions

No need to add co2 to the fermenter. 

Buy a CO2 bottle.  Add CO2 to the bottle bucket.  Then add CO2 to each bottle before filling.  It will help.

Seems like that would be a tasty hoppy APA to me.  Go for it.

I just dry hopped mine.  I gave it one swirl after closing it back up.

I got one for my barley wine that did not carb up in the bottle.  Works great.

I just picked up a six pack last night.  $20.  I will not buy again.  But I said that last year too.  It's good but way over priced.

I like the ruination 2.0.  It's more bitter than the standard IPA   but flavor and aroma are really nice.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Low Oxygen Conclusions?

If I could brew LODO I would.  I would have to think better beers are brewed with lower oxygen.

I would think it would be carbed too.  Some thing went wrong.  My house is 70 to 75 right now.  I guess I can buy a carbonation cap if it doesn't carb in a month or so.  I wasn't planning on really drinking this until the holidays anyway.

Yes. I did rack the beer in top of the yeast and sugar solution.

So I bottled this up a month ago.  It sat in a secondary for a couple months before I bottled.  I added a half pack of hydrated us-05 and 3.2 oz of priming sugar.  I have no carbonation yet.  Just a very small hiss when opening.  They have been sitting in a 70 degree room.  Do you think they will carb with more time?

Maybe just utilize FWH?
