Today, (right now in fact) I'm brewing Rocket Rod's Positively Porter.  Tomorrow, it is a great weissen bock that I love.

While I agree that ferm temps are important, being a little on the high side shouldn't be a problem... I recently toured the Great Divide brewery, and was quite surprised to learn that they ferment ALL of their ales between 72-75*. And they make some of my absolute faves...

I've been brewing less than a year, and when I started, I checked several sites.  I settled on this one, and never looked back. All you guys are awesome! I've gotten tons of great advice and info here.  (Love at first sight?) I may not post often, but I'm here every day... 8)

All Grain Brewing / Re: So, how long to do a 5 gallon all-grain batch?

The first time I did an all grain brew, it took me over 8 hours. I have since refined my methods, and can do it in 5-6 hours.  Time well spent, if you ask me.

I just tried Samuel Smith's Nut Brown ale...  Yuck.  I like Sam Smith, but not this one. Couldn't even finish it.  One of my buddies brewed an elderberry beer recently... Again, yuck.  I did finish that one, only to be polite

It looks like a dog treat is being dangled in front of her... definitely not framed to give her the best look possible...

Be careful, it doesn't take much to turn this into an obsession... just ask my wife!

One of my faves... I toured the brewery a couple of weeks ago, and this beer is awesome on tap... they have an awesome taproom, great food, and even better beer.  I do truly like the Salvation.  And I'm VERY picky on the Belgian styles... This beer is on my regular purchase list... (along with La Fin Du Monde, by Unibroue... but thats for another thread!)

One of their best; they seem to knock out a lot of really great, big brews.  The oak aged is worth the extra few bucks in my opinion.  I've got a bottle of the chocolate Yeti in the fridge to try later.  If you're ever in Denver, go to their brewery next to Coors Field, its a great, informal place with a small tap room, free samples and fun tour.
I did tour their brewery a couple of weeks ago, and was quite surprised to learn that ALL their beers are fermented at 72-75*.  And the Collette farmhouse ale is phenomenal out of the tap...

Commercial Beer Reviews / Great Divide's "Yeti" imperial stout
« on: July 29, 2011, 04:55:12 PM »
I am a big fan of Great Divide Brewing, and last night tried their Yeti IS for the first time.  It looked like used motor oil pouring into my glass. Dark!  Great malt flavor at first, a little sweet, but then the hops kick in for an awesome flavor.  75 IBU's.  I'm not a big stout fan, but this one truly blew me away.  Has anyone else tried this? What were your thoughts on it?

Gmac... I think I'm gonna try this recipe, sounds pretty good.
Dmtaylor...  What hops would you use for the flavor/aroma?
