Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / fermentation question on ipa
« on: October 30, 2013, 03:57:54 PM »
brewed up a ipa recipe that i came up with myself not a box recipe. grain... 4 lbs carapills, 4 lbs caramel 120, 3.3lbs dme pills malt, 3lbs pail dme, 1lb extra pail dme, 1lb begian candy syrup. hopps 2oz sazz pellet, 3oz cascade pellet, 1 oz citra whole cone, also plan on dry hopping in secondary. question i have is by using pellet hops do i need to rack to secondary sooner than normal to avoid the ''grassy'' taste? i have heard of people telling me this on certain ipas but usually calling for more hops. this is my first ipa ive done without havin a recipe to go off of so just lookin for some insight and what to do to take my beer to next level.

Kegging and Bottling / beer line formula???
« on: April 12, 2013, 01:26:36 PM »
have a english bitter on tap. force carbed for 3 days at 30psi then droped it to 8psi beer comes out a little to foamy if you are not carefull with the pour. tried dropping it all the way to 3psi and not much differance. took it back to 8psi currently, im thinking i either have to long of beer line or too short. this is a new system and id like to get it dialed in right from the start. if anyone can give me a place to go look up the formulas for beer line length and diameter verse pressure id appreciate it. (id beerline is 3/16 and 5 feet of line at 8psi with 3 1/2" shank running in a 36degree keezer if this helps)

thanks for the input. i was kind of leary about fruit in a lager since ive never seen it on commercial scale. thats why i love this site!

did a 5 gal rootbeer extract kit by simply adding sugar, water, and extract. put it in keg 5 days ago at 50psi and still taste flat. only dropped psi to 30 to serve. i know this is prob high but i was just checkin carb level. i have no leaks and its the only keg running in the keezer right now. does anyone have any clue what i could be doin wrong? i need to fix asap kids are on me every hour about it... by thee way i have never had a prob with beer carbing up in this setup.
