Ingredients / Re: Extract vs juice vs flavoring
« on: August 16, 2017, 02:53:36 PM »
There are some good extracts out there (more than before), but IMO they're best used in tandem with real fruit. I don't see the Belgians forgoing real fruit in their best examples.

But, what's wrong with extract?!  ;)

In small doses along with fruit, nothing IMO. ;D.

What that really says Dave is that you don't know where to source good extracts.  There's plenty of good stuff out there.

Ahem.... okay.....

I do stand corrected.  Sure, there are likely good extracts out there.  It pays to be selective in your ingredients, and this goes for everything.

Helles @ 5 weeks. It's pretty clear, but it's humid today and the condensation is persistent. Regardless - 56 Pils/40 Pale Ale/4 Carahell, 18 IBU HM, 2206. Pretty damn good.   :)

Shows the variability in hop retailers and harvest, I guess. I use different retailers and have gotten onion/garlic easily 75% of the time from it, sometimes strong. I've seen a couple people post similarly about Mosaic and I've had nothing but good luck with it. Lots of variables to getting good hops evidently.

I've heard the same. In that case, a whole lot of Summit must get harvested late.  ;D  Rarely used it without the onion/garlic.

Thanks for posting, Bryan. That's pretty similar to the dunkels I brewed a few months back, exept I need to work more dark Munich into the mix.

Thanks for dispelling that internet nonsense, Martin. The net can be a great thing but unfortunately is also a source of bogus (even dangerous) info.
