Welcome to the best homebrewing forum out there!

BrewBama that's definitely an interesting point you make in that more ingredients does not necessarily equate to more sophisticated beers. I will keep this in mind as I switch from being completely reliant on kits to making my own recipes. This actually is my Brew years resolution, to stop buying kits and start brewing from ingredients I put together. ::) Maybe even start doing a partial mash! (prob getting ahead of myself  :P)
Go to YouTube and search "brewing on the ones"
There was a Zymurgy article of the same name.   Implementing the changes Drew suggested led to a huge improvement in my beer.

There's enough BTB in it to counter the copper IC?  I assumed I would have to add some at KO

This is funny: "But an Anheuser-Busch partnership may mean that it can create home-brewed versions of beers such as Budweiser and Corona"
Most home brewers aren't talented enough to replicate Bud at home.  Oops , I should have posted that in the unpopular opinions thread.

Yes thanks for the care package Bryan.  I'm waiting to use it until I get a mash cap and some BTB to counter my copper IC.  Thanks for the info ajk and Martin.  I will be making something similar.  Think my wife will mind me cutting up her yoga mat?

It's a Fat Tire clone.
No amount of advice will help that.

You can safely pitch a large amount of yeast trub without a starter with no negative effects, months after collecting it.

You can brew great beer with recipes you make up in your head on brew day.

You can make great beer using guestimation.

Simcoe hops are delicious and in no way taste or smell remotely like cat pee!
OK, this one I can't resist.  How do you know simcoe hops don't taste like cat pee?  :)

Blind triangle. :)

I love 1469 and never get diacetyl from it.  Maybe it is a malt thing.  How much cara/crystal did you use?

This thread got away from me. Someone was talking about DIY mash caps a few pages back. Long before I knew about lodo, I made one for my Denny-style mash tun with some foamboard and foil tape. I recently added a circle flow kit for recirculation. You can certainly build something much nicer than this (and many have), but I'm posting it to show how low the bar can be.

Will you please post a parts list for your set-up?  I also brew Denny-style but want to adapt it for LODO.

BTW the two separate low oxygen threads are a mess.
Yes but this is the AHA Forum not the LODO forum.  Also, the other thread was posted for a specific purpose that got off-track.  It should probably be closed.  Maybe those interested in LODO should join the German Brewing Forum too.  I should probably do this, or just PM Bryan.  Have a lot of time on your hands Bryan? ;)

I finally deleted Brew Guru today.  It still shows my membership as being expired.

It does appear there is krausen forming.  I guess it is peculiar to me because this is the first beer I haven't noticed any blow off of co2 on.  Is it worth it to pitch more yeast or let it ride?  OG is at 1.065 also

leave it alone. take a gravity measurement in a week or so. If there is krausen and you aren't seeing airlock activity, theres a good chance your fermenter isn't forming a tight seal. RDWHAHB.

Mmm, a great Belgian beer.

Technically it IS Belgian! I'm so proud of my country I could burst!!
I'm aware.  People across the state in St. Louis freaked out that Bud was no longer "American."  Whatever.
