General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How about least favorite style of beer?
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:25:36 AM »
Not a fan of  the hefeweisen with the clove/banana thing.  Belgians are not my first choice of beers to drink, although I'm doing my best to learn to appreciate.

I'm bottling my Dusseldorf Alt, and brewing a Simcoe-Amarillo pale ale.

That's a tough question.  I'm gonna go with the American Pale Ale.

Starsan, PBW, and OxyClean.  Oxyclean is also awesome for removing bottle labels.

As I understand it, you make the corrections for the batch size you want at the end of the boil.  If I'm wrong, I've jacked up a whole bunch of beer in my life.  :o   I usually add all my additions as I'm heating the water, and stir as the temps rise to help it dissolve.

When I re-create someone else's recipe, I feel like Weird Al Yankovic.  Kinda like the original, but screwed up

I don't have that exact pump either, but I got one very similar to it from Northern Tool.  I use it in the summer to push ice water through my immersion chiller and it works like a champ.

+1 on Patience.  Walk yourself through the process a few times before you start.  Don't rush - better to go slow and get it right than hurry to beat infection/oxidation and screw it up.  The bottling is slow at first, but you get better at it pretty quickly.  Capping only takes a couple minutes.  I usually fill all the bottles, then do all the capping, but do what works for you.

Yeast and Fermentation / Can I use yeast nutrient without a starter?
« on: January 11, 2010, 07:06:36 PM »
Hi y'all.  I was wondering if it would be helpful to add yeast nutrient to my wort before fermenting.  I've been using US-05 lately, so I haven't had the need to make a starters.  I wonder if adding it would help the yeast, or just mess up the beer.

I have some extra Columbus lying around.  Would it work to use that as the bittering hop and put all the Simcoe/Amarillo as finishing hops?

Thanks for the feedback!  Sounds like I have some experimenting to do!

General Homebrew Discussion / Simcoe And Amarillo in a Pale Ale?
« on: January 09, 2010, 06:55:52 PM »
Has anyone tried combining Simcoe and Amarillo together in a pale ale?  I was thinking of make one, using simcoe for bittering, then simultaneous additions at 20 min, 5 min, and flameout.  I had to scale down the simcoe to try to keep the IBUs in range for pale ale.  Right now I've got 45 IBUs calculated.  Here's what I was going to try:

9.5 lbs 2-Row
.75 lbs Crystal 40L
.5 oz simcoe 60 min
.5 oz amarillo and .25 oz simcoe at 20 min
.5 oz amarillo and .25 oz simcoe at 5 min
1 oz of each at flameout

 If anyone has tried this combination and has suggestions or advice, I'd appreciate it.
