Looks tasty. Might have a heavier body than desired for a summer/session ale. Especially mashing at 156 and using S04, which is less attenuation than say US05. Definitely looks like it'll taste good though.

Ingredients / Re: All Zythos
« on: August 20, 2013, 08:30:15 AM »

I know Zythos has been touch on a bit here but not for awhile. I have had a pound in the freezer for some time now, and I can't ever fit it into a recipe. I know it's a hop blend. Has anybody ever brewed an all Zythos IPA? I was thinking maybe going crazy and using the whole pound in an IPA.

A buddy did an all Zythos all Munich IPA that turned out awesome.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Slow Fermentation

Just curious, why did you decide to start reusing yeast?

You don't run a commercial operation and not reuse the yeast.

Yes, but at a nano level I was curious what his incentive was.  I would assume on a larger scale it would be beneficial to reuse yeast to decrease the cost per ounce, but on a small scale, not so much.  Unless of course he is planning on upgrading in the near future and wants to start getting acquainted with reusing yeast.  I'll wait for his response.

Every time I hear "crop report" I think of the movie "Trading Places."

Lol

I agree with most everything said. I will say a big +1 to using a thinner mash (I use 1.8 qts/lb and saw a big jump in efficiency after previously using about 1.25-1.4 qts/lb).  Also a big +1 to using 185* sparge water. Don't sweat it over a few points though. Make sure all your volumes were measured correctly. You probably got better than average efficiency after all.

Gee, I hope my LHBS starts carrying beaver anal glands...

It's a special request. You gotta ask them for it. ;)

Who cares about any of that? I like beer, with or without animal parts or genetically modified whatevers. :)

Kegging and Bottling / Am I being impatient?
« on: August 16, 2013, 03:43:57 AM »
That's a great resource but raised another question. I have read many people keep the Co2 tank in the kegerator but this guide states that should not be done with no reason listed as to why? So why is this not recommended? Mine is inside, does it really matter?

Because you can fit more kegs in the kegerator if you don't store the co2 bottle in it ;). At least that's my reason!

Ingredients / Hop Presence vs. Expediency
« on: August 14, 2013, 04:18:23 PM »
I'm trying to dial in the time it takes from grain to glass for some of my IPAs.  I've hear many pro brewers talk about their ability to go from grain to glass in 10 days or so.  I'm trying to figure out if this is attainable at the homebrew scale, while maintaining hop freshness and aroma.  I tend to get a oniony/garlic/BO flavor from these IPAs (regardless of the hops used) within the first day or so after the beer has carbonated.  Note: I quick carb using a diffusion stone set to serving pressure or a little higher for 48 hrs.  This onion/garlic/BO flavor usually subsides after a few days.  Anyone else have this issue or some advice on how to fix it?
