Here's my ESB that I posted in another thread yesterday, no gelatin, just some Irish moss and cold crashed

Ingredients / Re: Pellets vs whole hops
« on: March 10, 2015, 05:36:03 AM »
The only whole hops I use are my home grown Centennial and Cascade. The majority of which I use in a few wet hopped beers at harvest. The rest are mainly used for dry hopping. Otherwise I only use pellets for the reasons stated above.

Sounds tasty although in the picture it looks like you used way too much gelatin.
No gelatin was used but it was cold crashed for almost week and then kegged, sat on gas then for another 10 days before the first pour. It is really clear.

Did you end up using torrified wheat? How much? I just ordered some for my next ESB.
I did not, thread #11 shows the recipe I went with. There is a nice bitterness to the beer with a well balanced malt backbone. It has a very tasty bready, bisquity flavor profile. I'm very happy with it and I'm hoping the judges like it this weekend as I entered it in a comp along with a few other beers.

Just wanted to pop in and thank everyone for the input, I simplified the original recipe and made the suggested adjustments, the ESB turned out fantastic!

Another consideration is how to cool the tower. If the lines in the tower stay warmer than the keg your first pours will always be quite foamy sue to the temp gradient. This is more easily managed on the collar. Either way I suggest a fan to circular the cold air but IME its easier done without the tower

IMO, if you plan on using the Hibiscus, dry hopping would offer competition to the floral aroma and might not compliment. I'd opt for one or the other, not both

Never used ginger but I use Hibiscus in a Saison and a Gose, the flowers go in at flame out and steep like a hop stand. The results are great, nice floral notes and color contribution. The floral aroma will fade a bit. I used the bag from Jamaica as well, about 2/3rds IIRC.

Did you use the whole bag, Gary? I'd thought of doing that, too, but wasn't sure how much flavor it would bring.

Hey Jon,
No, I used 45 grams which if I remember was a bit less than the entire bag. They steeped for about 30 minutes before I began chilling. This is reminding me to order some more so I can get my Gose on for the warmer weather which I hope is coming soon!

Time your beer so its at its best come comp judging.

Sample well and be sure the final product fits in the style you intended. If not adjust the style category to be entered.

Try to enter the beers in more than one comp to get a good average of feedback.

As mentioned, don't take things too seriously, its for fun and feedback.

Drop off your beer if you can, shipping can sometimes mess with your beer.

Good luck!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Dryhop DIPA with Perle?
« on: March 05, 2015, 07:16:08 AM »
I Haven't dry hopped them but have used a couple ounces at flameout all by themselves. I think it makes an excellent APA. This first one of my home brews that I sat back, patted myself on the back, and said "this is a damn good beer" I was drinking my pale ale single hopped with all Perle.
Funny, I did something similar on a APA but bittered with Perle and then it was all Saaz including 3oz of dry hop, the beer turned out great.

I've been getting tired of all the fruity, citrus-y pales and have been doing more with Noble hops and have been really pleased

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast seems to have stopped
« on: March 05, 2015, 06:45:10 AM »
Sounds like an extract batch with steeping grains. You probably had a bad mix of top off water and wort which is pretty typical, hence the low starting gravity, not to worry, the OG should be what the recipe states assuming your volumes are correct.

Finishing at 1.011 is a good place to be, as mentioned it was most likely done, good job! Now get started on another batch, the first one won't last long:)

Congrats! What yeast?
I'm sure you know the recipe but the yeast is a house strain.  And no I won't ship vials!
Very well played, LMAO!
