Beer Recipes / Re: Red Ale with Apple Pie extract recipe

I think it all depends on how malty you want it. Red x has worked well for me to get deep red tones but in my experience anything at 50% of the grist or more will contribute to a pretty uniquely malty beer. I think carared and a small amount of roasted malt may be the way to go.

Cider is fermenting away. I may just dose some glasses of the finished batch to see if it's something I want to experiment with next time. Thanks for the feedback. This is normally something I would have just done and possibly been very disappointed with like numerous experimental beers.

If you are looking for a dark cream ale I would go with Jon's suggested recipe and add enough dehusked carafa to get it dark which will also add some light roast character. I think a lot of the other ingredients are sending it in many different directions but that is not to say it would make a bad beer by any means.

I have only made a few ciders and have no experience with malic acid. I will look into it.

This cider will be fermented with a couple pounds of puréed mixed berries, 8 oz agave, and t58. Coriander and orange zest added at the end of fermentation. I will be wary of the salt and either dose some samples for testing or not worry about it.

Thanks for the thoughts. This will be for a cider I am getting ready to make. I do like my ciders pretty dry but do backsweeten a bit. I was kind of thinking of keeping the dryness level the same as I am accustomed to but just adding something that would make it a bit more tart. So something that would be more semi sweet and tart versus bone dry. Maybe I will just worry about the salt for now as there are a lot of other things going on in this batch and I don't want to worry about something like a sour mash or adding bugs.

I suppose zero and zero are not the advice you were looking for.

Sorry.  I get more blunt after I've been drinking a lot.

Extremely helpful. Thanks

Thinking about adding some salt and perhaps some lactic acid to a finished cider. Kind of going for a gose inspired cider. Any recommendations on amounts for a 4 gallon batch?

Were the hops dried before vacuum sealed?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Off flavors from stressed lager yeast

Sorry. I was referring to the OP

Edit- looks like my previous post didn't go through. Lemon is not the issue this time. I get that 34/70 sucks but i don't think my problem is related to using this yeast versus a different yeast.

The Pub / Re: Avery Brewing

Never been a fan of Avery but I am also not into really big beers like they are known for. Visited there and about 20 other breweries in North Boulder, Fort Collins, & Longmont a few weeks ago. Odell was my favorite of the trip.

Avery was definitely impressive however I was there late and it was packed beyond belief. Kind of skewed my experience. Food was good.
