I would think so. And as far as I can tell, when I loose any aroma, I pull the bag and add more to the keg.

Yeah, same here. Especially when the keg is carbed, I assume the heavier CO2 drives any O2 up toward the lid.

Also, if you are dry hopping keg, how much if any oxidation is occurring?

In theory, there is a little as the hops come apart. To me,definitely less than occurs from dry hopping and then transferring to keg.

Ok . Curious how much before you get a sour twang.

Me too. He says at that dose rate he didn't detect it. I wouldn't want to go over.

what exactly is the point of c in your beer? stopping oxidation and or spoilage?

That's what I want to evaluate. As especially prone to oxidation as hop aromas are, I want to see if, as Dan says, the ascorbic will help APA/IPA aromas last longer.

I've noticed that. Not all created equal. So to speak.

1 tsp per 5 gallons.

Thanks, Dan.

First off, welcome !  Secondly, this looks like an all extract kit, meaning that the fermentable sugars and OG (original gravity) are basically a done deal per given volume of the recipe. If your volume came in under the target amount, you could've just topped off with water to hit your target. Do you have a hydrometer ?  I hope so. You need to check gravity - once a day over three successive days - until you have reached a steady reading. This will mean fermentation is over and it's safe to bottle the beer without having bottle bombs.

heh funny.  Someone randomly came up to me and showed me that at the homebrew club meeting last night.  I had no idea. ;-)

FYI it's Fick  ;D
And Ruch. People trying to pronounce my last name often add an s, among other letters.
I think you can imagine what the other popular misspelling of my name is.  I'll give you a hint... it's what it actually means in German lol.

Funny stuff !

how much?

This^^^.  I'm gonna try it with a split batch and then do a blind triangle.

No kidding.  It'd be easy to add some to the bottom of a keg and rack on top. Gonna try it when I keg my next hoppy beer.

Great looking pictures, Keith. And I like IPAs best that look like that, too. But that kolsch pic is just crazy -  I want a large quantity of that.

i like the looks of the recipe. i'd like to give it a shot with wlp007 and finish up 1.010ish range and see how that comes off.
Yeah, I'm gonna brew it again soon. I want to use the Dry English yeast and see if it is much different. 001 finished this beer at 1.008.

IBU around 68 on this?
Honestly, I'm not sure. I can't find my original notes I made when I listened to the podcast to get the recipe. And my palate isn't the most discerning, I've had my nose broken and reset quite a few times.

couldn't see that first addition time..was it 60 minutes?

EDIT - Simple recipe.

That's the recipe from BN's CYBI.  Pretty good.  I used WY1098.

that makes sense. what style category does this fall into..i cant seem to find american strong ale

American Strong Ale, which is kind of a loose term.

you think the avangard pale ale malt would be good for the base?

I've only used their pils, but I'm sure it'd be good. The special B and Chinook take center stage.
