General Homebrew Discussion / Re: recirculate mash?

Interesting. I used to use a false bottom and would vorlauf until I got clear runnings. Now I use a bag without vorlauf as others have mentioned and have had zero noticeable difference in the finished beer. Thanks for the information. Glad it doesn't perceptibly affect my beer.

My pilsner is hopped late with HM then dryhopped with MB. It pairs really well and has a very noble quality to it with a slight hint of orange/citrus.

Is the Citra lupulin powder, cryo hops or something @ 25.2% aa? I was going to suggest a lot more hops but don’t have any experience with that stuff.

FWIW, both the powder and pellets are cryo.  The powder is no longer being produced due to difficulties in using it.  All cryo is now in pellet form.

Thanks. Any recommendations on usage amounts for an IPA? That feedback might help the OP.

Doesn’t he also make a dip tube fitting for the Speidel Jim?  I use 15g with the red screw top. Like a Speidel before they were around. I’m trying to figure out how to do what you are doing. That top w the dip tube would be the ticket.

Oh I agree. That to me would be ideal. I'm not seeing it though.

The only dip tubes I see are for the spigot which doesn't make sense to me. I transfer from the spigot. If I was to use one of these dip tubes, I would pick up a ton of yeast.
Unless you could rotate it up out of the yeast

Just thought of that. Usually the yeast settles right below the spigot for my 30L. I thought you guys were essentially talking about a racking cane built into the lid. Sorry to interrupt. Carry on.

Beer Recipes / Re: IPA Hop bill help using Chinook, Ekuanot, & Comet

My current ipa features equinox and comet primarily and I really like that hop combination. Good mix of pine, citrus, stone fruit, pineapple, and herbal.

I recommend getting the majority of your ibus from the bittering addition then pushing all of hops to late kettle and dry hop. Just my personal preference that simplifies as well.

I am not a big fan of lefthand and have steered clear of their ipas in the past. Might need to give them a second chance.

Jim, your return has been a breath of fresh air. I hope things get turned around. I don’t post much but am constantly on.

Anyone know what ever happened to Ken (don’t know his last name)? Wish he would come back.

You two and Jon (Hoosier) were always the most helpful contributors to things that applied to me.

I think you mean Wort H.O.G. (Ken)


That’s the Ken I’m thinking of. Thanks!

Thanks all. Seems pretty easy as long as I pitch enough yeast and keep my fermentation temps in check. Hoping for something in the 9% Abv range

Anyone have a good recipe they want to share?

Sounds like keeping it simple might be the way to go. Pilsner malt and sugar?

Yep, that's it.  Don't be tempted to make it more complicated.  I like WY1388 for the style.

How much and what kind of sugar are we talking about? Plain table sugar at 10-15%?
