Thanks for the replies. Looks like the secondary is the time to throw in the pepper!

I wrote a "Habanero Cookbook" book a while back and everyone I know now expects a habanero beer. hehe

Ingredients / Hot peppers in an IPA

I plan on making a 3 gallon batch of Habanero IPA.

When would you add hot peppers?

Ingredients / Coffee and Stout
« on: August 01, 2012, 07:38:55 PM »
I read a few posts on other sites, but felt asking here would give me the answer I would prefer.

At what point do you add the coffee? 

Do you just brew coffee or just use ground coffee?

Is Chocolate similar timing? Use those "nibs"?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Using Ice to cool wort?

i fell your pain bro (original poster).  i took the temp of the water coming out of my hose solidly for over 5 minutes and it "got down" to 102.

HAHA exactly. I think it would be almost pointless to get an Immersion Chiller.....

thanks for the replies. I figured it was ok if I was a gambling man with contamination. I get my ice from the Publix grocery store ice freezer. I never felt it tasted chlorinated, but I never taste tested it for off flavors. :)

I do put it in water with some ice, but I would not call it an ice bath. My water is not very cold being in south FL. With the 10lb bag of ice, I get go from 200s to the 60s in about 5-10 minutes. I spray the unopened bag with StarSan and use a lid for the pot. I was just making sure there is not a weird chemical reaction from being too fast.

Simple question.

Besides contamination..... is there any other negative reason of adding a 10lb of ice to the 3gallon boiling wort to get it to pitching temps in under 5 minutes?

Beer Recipes / PHAT ???? Ale
« on: July 31, 2012, 03:39:23 PM »
I brewed this beer last night. I thought it would be fun to make beer names using the first letter of the hops/additions used. This one is PHAT. My question is.... what beer type this would fall into?

Pale? Blonde? Golden?

Not sure what it technically would be. It was not as light colored as I had hoped. So, I would assume Pale Ale.

I just re-read the message I quoted and I did read it wrong, but I swear I have seen recipes with daily hops as the recipe.

I'd go with a big flameout addition and at least an ounce of each for dry hops.

What is the difference in doing say 7x1oz daily additions do over one large 7oz addition at the start?

Thanks for all the input guys. I did end up brewing it this weekend. I replaced the Caramel 60L with 8oz of table sugar(~5%). I do think the points about using light extracts and steeping grains for color(and flavors?) makes a TON of sense and will be doing that from now on I think. Its more interactive too :) I think I understand correctly now. Basically, the darker LME/DME basically already have the steeping part done for you.

Yeast and Fermentation / Two yeasts for one split 5gallon batch?
« on: July 20, 2012, 09:27:16 PM »
Simple question.

If I make a 5 gallon 1.060 batch, split to 2.5 x2, and money is not an concern, would using a full "smack pack" be too much yeast in each?

Now, I bet you are sorry you asked. ;)

HAHA! Not at all! This was exactly what I was hoping someone would say. What you said makes total sense. I think am going to save those 2 ingredients for lighter hoppy brew I am thinking of.

        I purchased all this stuff and am planning on making the beer tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone sees any blaring issue that would make this suck. :)
