Beer Recipes / Re: Kolsch or Cream Ale?
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:08:51 PM »
I like a Kolsch to have a subtle white wine flavor from the yeast. Cream Ales can have corn in them, but not necessary. Maybe have some others taste it as well and I think you’re on the right track with entering it on how it tastes.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Sours
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:53:30 AM »
Some people kettle sour beers that can be done relatively quickly. And some people take the longer approach that can take up to year or more to reach the desired flavor. I have done both and I prefer the longer method because the beer flavor tends to have multiple layers and nuances. The kettle sour beers tend to be more one dimensional. The price for the kits seem really high. The grain bill can be very simple or complex. You can start out with Pils and Wheat (1.050)and under 10 IBU’s. Use a mixed culture like WY 3763 Roeselare with lacto, Brett, and Pedio. I use separate equipment for fermenting and transferring my sour beers. I also have a keg dedicated to sours with its own picnic tap. I hope that helps a bit.

In my book, it takes a big person to admit that they’re wrong. This attitude makes this forum a better place.

Ingredients / Re: Dates

I used them in a Dark Sour. I pitted them and added them in the secondary. It added a nice,rich, fruity sweetness to this beer. So, I would add them after primary fermentation is complete. They will kick fermentation up again, but I think this way will retain the most flavor from the dates.

I went to Highland last summer with my kids (age 14) and it was very kid friendly with food trucks outside along with good live music.

Couldn’t be happier with how this turned out. Finished at 1.014. Needs a coulple more weeks to fully smooth out. Loving a bit more balance from higher bitterness.
That's great that it turned out nice. The one I made recently didn't last long which speaks to how much my wife and friends liked it. I'll be making this every spring from now on.

Ingredients / Re: LORAL Cryo Hops

I've used them quite a bit for APA/AIPA.  Might make for an interesting lager of some sort.
So, did you use other hops with them? I have a bunch of different American varieties(Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, Mosaic, Idaho 7, and Citra).

Ingredients / LORAL Cryo Hops
« on: May 03, 2018, 09:26:01 PM »
I just realized that my membership had expired when I got an email about renewing for a gift of 1 oz LORAL Cryo hops. So, I quickly renewed and was wondering what these hops would go good with style or other hops? They seem like they might be nice as a flavor/aroma addition for a Lager. Or would they be nice mixed with another American hop in a Pale Ale or IPA?

Very interesting information. I currently have been just using WY 1056 and WY 2124 over and over again. I guess I’ve been using two Lager strains or maybe 2124 is actually an Ale strain because I’ve fermented it at 60-62 and it was still clean.

I brewed Drew’s Patersbier: Father’s Reward Enkel today. https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/how-to-brew/patersbier-the-lawnmower-beer-of-trappist-monks/

It came in at 1.046 which gave me a 78% BH efficiency which is not bad for the first time recirculating and whirlpooling with the new Chugger pump.


Nice color and clarity! I brewed a German Pils today.

Thanks for the info guys. The most I’ve gone is 5-6 generations and I once got a contamination with some stored yeast. It ruined two beers with bad phenolic flavor, so I’m always leery about that happening again.

Well that sucks. Unfortunately there isn't really any way to save it this time but let's fix it for the next time!

The main problem I see is that you aged it for 6 months in a secondary. Secondaries are not a great option unless you can purge the secondary of oxygen first, otherwise you will oxidize the beer. And 6 months is crazy long aging for this style. 4-6 weeks is plenty. If you want to age it, bottle it and store it cold. This beer style does actually age well for up to about 1 year, but not much past that.
I agree with this and would add that bottle conditioning helps if aging for some time.

Don’t offer advice unless I’ve actually tried or done it before.
