Wake Up - The Roots

Interesting. I have only gone to New Year's Eve parties. Didn't know New Year's day parties was a thing...

I would brew something lighter in color but bump up the ABV to 'holiday' levels. Blonde, Pilsner, Wheat, Kolsch, etc.

Personally I wouldn't use any crystal malt in a DIPA and in fact I would be adding sugar to dry it out a bit.


I do both.  Crystal for flavor, but balance with sugar for fermentability.

Makes sense. I do 70/30 pilsner/munich with sugar. I just don't use crystal malt very much...

You may get advice to leave out the rye at that small of a percentage. I have heard that if you want the rye to really come through you need to use at least 15%.

You can still make strong ales pretty hoppy as long as it doesn't overpower the malt character and head into IPA range. The ones I like are like strong amber ales and are sufficiently hopped. If it were me, I would use more munich malt but I love munich malt.
Thanks for the advice, it's much appreciated.

I think im gonna go the DIPA route.
I have 2oz of Mosaic pellets and 8oz of whole cone Citra.
Im going to go all late additions, bitter to 50ibu with Warrior and use Tasty's hoppy water profile.

When would you add the whole leaf hops, 10min or Flame out?

What do you think about using the crystal 120 in that recipe? I only have 8oz.

As far as hops, I would go with a big bittering charge and add half of your late hops at flameout and the other half dry. If you only have 10 oz of hops, I would go for something closer to an IPA unless you are doing a smaller batch size. For a good DIPA, you need a ton of hops so I rarely brew that style so take my advice with a grain of salt. Just my approach...

Beer Recipes / Re: When to add orange peel
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:36:18 PM »
I was just about to start a thread on orange peel.  I wasn't sure when to add, either.  This is great!  One question I'd like to add to the mix is: fresh or dried orange peels?  What if I go to the store and just buy some oranges and use those peels?  Would it be better to dry them out over a couple days?  Thanks!

I personally prefer to use fresh orange zest whether it is going into the end of the boil or fermenter. Lately I have really be liking the character from adding it to the fermenter like a dry hop addition.

Thanks for the input.

I am pretty set on this but am thinking about altering the hops.

Should I:
1.) replace the nugget bittering hops with chinook
2.) leave the nugget but use equal amounts of chinook, centennial, & simcoe as my late hops (instead of centennial & simcoe only)
3.) do nothing

I have little experience with Chinook outside of bittering a couple of times. Looking for some pine and citrus and thought this might play well with the centennial and simcoe.

I think you are going to need more hops  :P

Think so? Not going for an ipa or even apa level really
