Ingredients / Re: Hop Suggestions for an Over-the-Top, Citrusy IPA

I will throw Equinox/Ekuanot into the mix. Not a citrus bomb but adds some nice elements.

Thanks guys. This guy was a 50/50 split of pilsner and red x for the base. I think I will continue to drop the percentage of red x in successive batches until I am fully satisfied. Red x is probably the most interesting malt I have used.

I didnt want to use citra since i used that already in another ipa.   What about bittering with apollo and then using Amarillo, Mosaic and Simcoe?

I think that would be good but remember you want little if any bittering hops in a NEIPA as mentioned already.

I had never heard of the Colorado one until my brother moved to Glenwood Springs about a year ago. Apparently this place is open like one Saturday out of the month...

This is a 50/50 blend of my latest Helles and Irish Red. I like it better than the 2 beers by themselves. I especially like this lower level of roasted barley. It adds a nice character malt taste without overpowering.



Cool! Did you go with a lager or ale yeast?

My buddy and I brewed a similar beer where we made a hybrid of each of our best beers; a kolsch and a brown ale. It was easily as good or better than the parent beers.
One was S-189 and one was Irish Ale yeast. The blend is quite clean.

I added a edit to my post. I misunderstood and thought you combined the two beers as one hybrid batch. After rereading it clicked...

EDIT- oops I misunderstood. you actually blended the two finished beers...

In my honest opinion, just ignore the "recommended temp ranges" on the yeast packages.
If you are unsure of a good fermentation temp you want for your beer, just look around the forums and see what folks have been recommending for the yeast/style you are brewing.

Good point!

In my opinion US05 has an optimum range of about 58F-75F. People report "peach" and other flavor differences depending on temp but I have never detected that...

I find the peach so objectionable that I've dumped batches of beer made with 05 and will not use it any longer.

That's cool. Glad that hasn't happened to me. Maybe I don't know what peach tastes like...

All Grain Brewing / Re: Hoppy Pils Water

My current hoppy lager used the same water profile as my APA which contains over 200 ppm SO4. In this beer, I feel it has increased the perception of crispness and makes it more identifiable as a lager.

“With modern technology, water is water. Anything in the water you don’t want, it is easy to get that out and put in what you do want,” Coors said.

Pretty sure there is no untreated Rocky Mountain Spring Water involved in Coors as I look out my window at the brewery. I suppose it starts in the mountains though....

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Dry Hop in Keg
« on: March 07, 2017, 12:23:02 PM »
My pale ale gets 3 oz of hops in the keg. I normally get a pungent hop character with hop debris for the first week or so. At two weeks the aroma and overall hop character is right where I like it.

I am not sure why you would not get any results from 2.5 oz...

Ingredients / Re: How many ounces of hops in your American IPA?
« on: March 06, 2017, 10:35:09 AM »
Enough bittering hops to get to 60-70 IBUs
4 oz @ flameout
4 oz DH

I am on my second cider as well; both have included fruit. I simply added the pureed fruit with the juice at the beginning then let them ferment together. I backsweeten with one can of concentrated juice.

Beer Recipes / Re: CAP recipe
« on: March 02, 2017, 09:25:13 AM »
Any thoughts? Really having a hard time deciding on what to brew next and have been throwing around the idea of a CAP for some time...

41% schill pilsner
36% american two row
23% flaked corn

21g Sterling 60 min
14g Sterling 15 min
14g Sterling 2 min
14g Crystal 2 min

Yeast?
Probably go with something I have on had which would be 34/70 or S-189. I assume neither of those would be preferred?

1.055
~33 IBU

Did you brew this? What was the yeast? I've been considering the S-189 in a Bock.

I am brewing tomorrow and have gone back and forth between this and a malty brown lager. I think the brown is going to win out before the weather warms up. I will be using S-189 in that.
