Beer Recipes / Re: Clear the cupboard IPA

I guess I should have consulted with you guys before I made it, but it is already plugging away in the fermenters.  I guess I will know in a few weeks.

You can add sulfate later.  Even in the glass.

Sounds like an experiment to me.  It is fermenting in two separate vessels, could I add sulfate to one and not the other, say after primary fermentation?

Dry hopping with last 2 oz of Mosaic and maybe more Amarillo but I doubt it. I would have to buy more and the point of this beer was to get rid of some ingredients. As far as CaCl, I was following Gordon Strongs water profile for his Avant Garde PA in his book.

I've been playing around with it a bit today.  I agree, looks to be quite helpful during the event.

I add mine a week before packaging.  This should allow the spices to sink to the bottom.

Completed.  One question is a bit wonky, the what types of beer have you brewed Ale, Lager, Stout, Pilsner.  Stout is an ale, Pilsner is a lager they are subsets of styles.

All Things Food / Bacon blu cheese burgers
« on: September 20, 2013, 10:33:35 AM »
I made some bacon blu cheese burgers a couple nights ago. I took some disposable pot pie pans and added a layer of chopped bacon and then added a layer of blu cheese and then topped with the ground beef. I grilled over the hot part of the grill till the bacon was crispy and then flipped the burgers out of the pans and finished grilling the other side.

Ha!  Initially saw this thread and thought someone was thinking it was good idea to make a beer with yeast harvested from their feet.   :o

I watched my Arkansas Razorbacks and had a couple of my home brewed Razorback Red Amber Ales.

This is why I always keep all my credit cards completely maxed.  Just let some crook try and use on of mine and they will experience the same shame I experience every day when the clerk says "I'm sorry sir, it says declined."    :o

Thanks for all the info!  Since I didn't have and campden tablets I just went with my usual routine, but I plan on picking up some tablets from the LHBS and giving them a try.

General Homebrew Discussion / How long to boil to rid chlorine?
« on: August 31, 2013, 01:25:41 PM »
With the long weekend I thought I would try using my city water to brew, I usually use RO and add salts, but our city water is pretty good for brewing except for the chlorine. So how long should I boil the water the day before to rid the water of the chorine?
