In the past few weeks I have been having fun brewing a pumpkin and a holiday porter but I need an IPA back in my life. Looking to do…

1oz CTZ 90min
1oz Warrior 60min
1oz Amarillo 10min
1oz Simcoe 5 min
1oz Citra 0min

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Has anyone ever brewed with Ras el Hanout?  I was thinking of using a Tsb or two to round out the flavors and make others more pronounced in my pumpkin beer.

Woke up at 4 this morning and the wind was blowing hard, came back home, moped around a bit went to the farmers market and now I am knee deep in a strawberry IPA.

I am guessing that you are referring to the Black and Red.  That is pretty much what did it for us too.

Thanks for the responses.  The powers that be/ brewing partner/wife have vetoed the whole mint idea.  Going back through our tasting notes the few beers that we have had with mint tasted horrible, so it’s back to the drawing board.

    I know we are barely into June but I am planning my Christmas beer.  Last year I did a brown ale with ginger, clove, all spice, molasses, and nutmeg.  This year I am looking to do a porter with cocoa nibs, mint and maybe a vanilla bean or two.  I have never brewed with cocoa nibs, mint or vanilla before.  My questions are when to add them to extract the right flavors and the right aromas, going for a chocolate chip mint ice cream feel.  I was thinking of adding 5 oz of nibs at knock out (5 gallon batch), half a bunch of mint, and one vanilla bean cut and scrapped.  In the secondary 3 oz of nibs and half a bunch of mint. Am I on the right path here?

Seems like 3 gallon batches are very popular for small space brewing.  Looks like its time to invest in some new carboys and put the old ones in storage.

Moving into a condo and my biggest fear is that I will not be able to brew like I used to. Currently I brew on a gas range, and I can achieve boil with 6 gallons no problem. My new place only has an electric range and no open flame on balcony.  I know about a heat stick but I do not know how keen I am on that any suggestions?
