Beer Recipes / Re: Scaling up a stout to an imperial stout

I prefer WLP007 in big beers like this, as well as my Irish Stout and Irish Red.  I like the recipe, btw.

I put a carbon, metal cutoff blade in my Dewalt chop saw. Worked like a charm and only cost about 9 bucks as I recall.
Okay, cool.  That would have been my guess, but better to know for sure rather than guess.  Thanks!

Looks really nice!  On question I have is what did you use to cut the tubing? (Maybe I missed reading it in the thread.) :-\

Ingredients / Re: Punching down dry hops
« on: May 16, 2012, 07:08:38 AM »
Dry hopping is all about the aroma and my personal preference is whole leaf.  I once split a ten gallon batch and dry hopped one carboy with 2 oz. of whole leaf Amarillo and the other with 2 oz. Amarillo pellets (b/c it was all I could get) and thought the whole leaf had better aroma.  Those leaf hops will soak up the wort given time in the carboy.

These days I dry hop in the keg, which makes things really easy.  Put the hops is a large paint strainer bag, weigh it down with glass marbles or S/S washers, everything sanitized, of course, and tied off with dental floss.  I tie the other end of the floss to the keg post.  That way, I can pull them out once the aroma is "enough".  ;)

If you use the Alton Brown receipe and cannot get White Lily flour where you live, I strongly suggest using a 50/50 mix of cake flour and AP flour.

Keep this thread updated, as this sounds like something similar to what I'd like to build!

Beer Recipes / Re: Light Ale Recipe
« on: April 25, 2012, 11:09:34 AM »
Four years ago I used minute rice in a cream ale and it was nice.  It was 2 lbs of flaked corn, 1 lb of the rice and 3/4 lb. of orange blossom honey with some 2-row and Pils malt.  Mashed at 152oF and used WLP029 at 66oF.  It was very hot that summer and this was perfect for the hot weather.  If I used WLP007, I'd ferment as cool as I could - around 62oF-63oF.

I love this yeast, too.  I've done a TTL clone a couple of times now and the last 10 gal. batch I did I split b/w 1469 and Thames Valley 1275 and preferred the 1469.  It gave the beer what I called a "juicier" hop flavor, like the citrusy little explosion you get with a fresh stick of Juicy Fruit gum.   Loved it.

I have seen the hop bags float! ...
I weigh them for the same reason.  Plus, I want to get that aroma infused into my beer as soon as possible.  Since the beer at the bottom gets pulled from a keg first, that's where I want those hops to be! ;)
