The AHA rally winers will brew with Rip Tide Brewing as the other brewery in the collaboration. Never heard of Rip Tide, but do know of one of the founders, a guy named Paul Sangster, Ninkasi winner 2011.

Rip Current.
Thanks, just heard about them today, and with my old man memory...

Yes the pressure you need changes with temperature.

There is a table in the Daught Beer Quality Manual, page 68. Search and do a download.

Anyone have an idea of the brewery of origin?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Old yeast as yeast nutrient?

One of my books (Dave Line?) says Fullers would pitch a bucket of yeast into the boil. They have something around 300 barrels for their system today, which is newer than the book I have. The bucket size was not specified either.

Are you fly sparging? Comments are for fly sparging.

You can taste the wort you are draining. If it tastes thin and leaves a sandpaper sensation on your palate, you have gone too far. You can measure the gravity, keep it over 1.010. You can measure the pH, keep it under 6. Tasting is quick and easy.

One thing you can do is reduce the sparge water to a lower pH, 5.5 to 6.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Oops...Session IPA
« on: March 25, 2013, 02:38:25 PM »
Along the same lines as Major, here's the hopping schedule for my last 10 gallon batch of IPA.  Not IIPA, just a 1.060 IPA.

28g Cascade (5.2%) FWH
50g Amarillo (6.2%) 30 min
85g Cascade (5.2%) 30 min
62g Amarillo (6.2%) 10 min
70g Cascade (5.2%) 10 min
60g Amarillo (6.2%) 0 min
62g Cascade (5.2%) 0 min
30g Simcoe (13.0%) 0 min
30g Amarillo (6.2%) Dry Hop (each carboy)
30g Simcoe (13.0%) Dry Hop (each carboy)
30g Simcoe (13.0%) Dry Hop (each keg)

I don't think this is hoppy enough either.

Grams???? I have no idea how much hops that really is. :P
Tom is what we call a scientist.

30g is about 1 oz+
60 is 2 Oz. +
85g is a boatload.

Beer Recipes / Re: British Summer Ale
« on: March 25, 2013, 09:07:45 AM »
Made a similar  beer in the fall. Used a little light Carastan (~17L) and torrefied wheat.

Had some light summer ales last time in England. Had a couple with American hops, and saw a pump clip for one with Galaxy.

Edit - don't be afraid to get the sulfate level up for these.

I'm 2 batches into trying to find the perfect Session IPA recipe. Call me a sinner, I guess!  ;D

FYI - kelsey mcnair's west coast bitter has gotten rave reviews - its in my soon-to-brew folder.

Have been looking at that one.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Had to Dump Beer
« on: March 24, 2013, 03:13:59 PM »
There is nothing worse to me than having to dump beer, especially a lager that has been lagering since Febraury 8th, especially when it was a 10G batch which means I had to dump two kegs!   :'(

What I can't seem to figure out is what went wrong.  I'm guessing a bacteria, probably aceto.  But what would make a beer lose it's head?  It was carbonated but no head at all.  Never had that before.

Dave

Something in the mash? Fusels from a fermentation that got too high in temp.?

The Pub / Re: Cats are not Hop Heads.
« on: March 24, 2013, 02:59:43 PM »
Random thing I found out brewing last night, my cat's hat hops.

Decided after a couple home brews to see what my pets thought of hop pellets. One sniff of a pellet and they would turn and run. I thought it was awfully funny.

Does anyone else know any random facts about pets and brewing?
I have to ask - was it Simcoe?  ;)

Grain to water and efficiency is around 80%. No problem.
