My mom gave me one of those last year. It's the thought that counts, I guess.

I have an un-opened 500 g brick of Maruibrew 514, best before says June 2014. I plan on doing some higher gravity one gallon brews after Christmas. Kind of nervous about using it, I got it for free though. I am thinking on using double the amount I would normally use for a 1.080 triple. Should I rehydrate it first?I would rehydrate and do a test batch. If the test batch works then the whole brick likely has the same viability.
In my experience Honey never adds more than a slight flowery taste and that may be my imagination. I added 1% honey malt to give the beer a fighting chance of having honey flavor.Mashing now...
1% Honey malt
15% Clover Honey at Flameout
22 IBU Magnum @ 60 min
0.25 oz Magnum at Flameout (3G batch)
American Lager yeast
I'm calling at American Craft Lager, for lack of a better name.
That sounds pretty interesting. Do you think the actual honey addition will come through with the use of the lager yeast?
At the time, I figured what the heck our grandfather's generation brewed in buckets under the bed...Seriously. I couldn't get the old school siphon to work either. I usually don't use a fermenter that needs siphoning at all. My other fermenter has a spigot. Overtime I guess I lost the tubing which was long enough to siphon. It was a cluster and I just gave up.
All's well that ends well though. The beer is great.
I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Overtime I guess I lost the tubing which was long enough to siphon. It was a cluster and I just gave up.I don't recommend this, but, on the last batch I kegged my autosiphon broke. I ended up picking up the fermenter and pouring it into the keg.Seriously? lol you poured the beer into the keg??? Wow... I'd have rigged up an old school siphon with just a hose (had to do that before when auto siphon stopped working).
No oxidation problems yet. The batch won't last long.
I did purge the keg with CO2 first and quite a bit of yeast went in the keg with the beer.
No. I used the Ekuanot in an American Wheat; 1 oz hop stand and 1 oz dry. Great beer.Did you end up brewing this recipe? I have it planned for next week since I received the free hops. They left 0.5oz of ekuanot out, not sure why. I'm thinking of adding it to the dry hop for a total of 1.0 oz ekuanot and 1.5oz simcoe. Shouldn't make that much of a difference no?Sorry for the confusion. The hops I have are actually labelled equinox but I just knew that the name was recently changed.Has anyone checked out this recipe:
Ekuanot HBC 366 American Pale Ale
AHA had a deal last month with membership renewal you got 4oz Simcoe, 2 oz Ekuanot, and 1 oz Warrior from YCH. The amounts are tied to the recipe linked above.
Based on this thread I may use the 2oz Ekuanot stand alone in a 2.5G batch. Not sure.

Would Ekuanot be good standalone in an American Wheat?
