Denny, in a Blonde or another style?  I've dry-hopped many a BoPils with Saaz with excellent results.

A pseudo pils made with WY1007.

I brewed a honey blonde ale in Febrewary using 1# of honey post boil, .5 ounce hallertau fwh, 1 ounce tettnang at 30 minutes and .5 ounce hallertau at 10 minutes. OG was 1.060 and FG was 1.006. I used wlp060 and fermented at 60f. After 14 weeks of lagering I finally tapped it and it tasted good, but not great. Clean beer, nice honey character, but missing something. Well I had just opened a pound of saaz and thought why not dry hop? So 3 ounces in 5 gallons and 5 days later, it tastes terrible! It has an overpowering floral/medicinal flavor. Has anyone else experienced this dry-hopping with saaz? Any suggestions to fix it? Dump it?

Yep.  Years ago, I was warned not to dry hop with Saaz.  I did it anyway with the same results as you.

Yeast and Fermentation / Over Attenuation?
« on: May 22, 2013, 06:34:58 PM »
So a buddy and I were having a conversation about final gravity. I have several recipes that have finished below 1.010. Around 1.005-1.008 to be exact. He mentioned getting that low usually means wild yeast was introduced somewhere. I've only been brewing for a year and typically US-05 is my go-to yeast. What do you think of this hypothesis?

I think it's completely off the mark unless the beers taste like they're infected.

Ingredients / 4 hour Dry Hopping?

I have taken a sample of a beer that has been dry hopped less than 24 hours.  I wasn't impressed.

Yeast and Fermentation / Color pickup from dark beer yeast slurry
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:56:56 PM »
Are you gonna wash it? That should get a lot of the dark color out.

I'm.  I took some pf the slurry and put it in a starter on a stir plate.  I'll decant when it's done.

I've often wondered if this concept would ever be realized in my lifetime. :)

Depends on how long ya live, Ron!

I can't answer that one Denny. I imagine it will be past my prime anyway.
We should have all got jet packs by now.  They promised.

Where's my jetpack!?

Maybe a bit.  I'm about to do something similar, so I'll know soon.

Doesn't Rogue use malt from house-grown barley? Not sure if they use it in all of their beers.

If so, substituting a highly-modified base malt could make a big difference.

They use it in some of the beers.  Some are 100%, some are only a bit.  Most beers at Rogue are made from Great Western malt.

Hooray!  8) Do I get a sticker or something? But seriously, on a homebrew level I just don't see the point of pure O2.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: When is a Wit not a Wit?
« on: May 21, 2013, 09:54:16 AM »
re you trying to make a beer that tastes like a wit?  Have you considered making another Belgian style that might be more appropriate for the yeast?

They're not back for me, I only see Amanda's.  I refreshed a bunch of times.  Oh well.

Did you try clearing your cache and shutting down your browser?
No, but I just forced a refresh without using cached content (ctrl-f5) and everyone except hubie has an avatar now.

That's what it looks like for me.

Frank, it might help to do what I do...I take an 8-12 oz. hydrometer sample.  After I get the gravity, I pour the sample into a 20 oz. PET bottle, put a carbonator cap on it and hit it with about 30 psi.  Put it in the freezer for maybe 30-45 min. and you have a cold, carbonated sample.

sheer genius!

Around here we call it "pragmatism"!  :)
