I need to try to make a good Belgian dubbel. Had one for the first time a year ago, but never quite got around to making some last year.

Yeah, printing is not always an exact science. Things happen. Thankfully no lives are lost (aside from the trees) due to printing errors (usually). I'm sure they will be happy to send a replacement issue in the near future.

I like it. Reminds me of Turtle Blues.

I cut commercial hops entirely out of my brewing.  My home hop yard is now at the scale that I can be "hop independent"- harvested over 3 lbs. (dry) of the freshest hops I can have.  I have enough successful varieties to brew American, German, and English styles that I enjoy.  Sorry hop sellers!

I'm kind of in the same boat. I have so many hops now that I started enlisting friends and neighbors to help me pick them. Too many hops.... it's a good problem to have.

Since we're on the subject of myths.....

This book seems to dispel a lot of them about American beer also. I read it years ago. A lot of interesting info.

I tried it after primary was complete (OG came in around 1011), and it tastes exactly like a belgian blonde.  The yeast must've overpowered the hop characteristics because they're not coming through at all  >:( :'(.  I'm still planning on dry hopping with a bunch of centennial.  Not expecting much out of this one since I'm not a huge belgian fan.  At least I only have to drink 10 gallons of this stuff........

You need to dry hop the heck out of it. Lots of flavor from the dry hops too, not just aroma.

Wow. Very cool. I need to try the 2-day dry hop method on my next IPA!

Another upvote for NB from me. I used them for about 8 years before a local homebrew supply opened up in the area. Customer service was always top notch.

Ingredients / Re: Sugarcane
« on: September 26, 2015, 09:03:24 AM »
I had fresh sugarcane juice a few years ago in the Caribbean. There are guys on the street who take the stalks and put it into a grinder so that the juice comes out the bottom. It was good and sweet, but it didn't really have any strong distinctive flavor. It tasted only slightly different than a glass of water with table sugar added.
