There are thousands of $16-23k ten year old Harleys with under 20k miles on them in garages across the country. Talk about an expensive hobby... especially when you figure in financing

BJCP written exam on Saturday.Good luck!
And I owe it to you, buddy. Thanks!First try at propagation from a slant. Two days ago I pulled a little bit from a slant and inoculated 20ml. This morning I pitched those to 200ml. I think its actually working. What an amazing hobby!
Welcome to a fascinating hobby within a fascinating hobby! This event is the start of completely new brewing experience, one without limits placed on you by the major yeast propagators. Every culture in the world is available to brewers who can propagate from slant or a spec of lyophilized yeast shipped in a glass ampule.
I brewed a Saison using Gewürztraminer grape must and Nelson Sauvin hops. I used 3 quarts of must in secondary added to 3 gallons of beer. I ended up aging it about 6 months before it hit its prime. At that point the hops had dropped off and the wine character took over. I used 2 ounces of hops in the whirlpool.This was an awesome beer!
I know it's not exactly what you're looking for, but it's at least one data point you could reference. If I were brewing an IPA with wine added I'd guess about 2 bottles in a typical 5 gallon batch would be a good starting point. But if I was using wine I'd probably just mix it in the glass at serving time rather than adding it all in the beer.

I totally get it. Do what you're doing. My tip on dry hops is just fyi, in the event the aroma is low, you'll know the possible cause and fix.Fun stuff! Welcome to the hobby! If you have more hops you might feel free to dry hop with more than an ounce. I like one ounce per gallon in my IPAs and many consider that still too little.
Being my first batch, I feel safer sticking to the recipe so I can get the basics (I'm a little chicken at this stage) and see how it goes. It does have a lot of Hops in it already (I think anyway):
.5oz each of Cascade and Falconer's Flight in First Wort
.5oz Simcoe at 60min
1oz Falconer's Flight & .5oz Cascade at 15min
1oz Cascade at 5min
.5oz each of Falconer's flight and Simcoe at flame out.
The recipe says it comes in at 70.6 IBU. Guess we will know in a month or so.....
I think he means you are applying common senseA ton of this hobby is applying common sense...it seems like a ton of folks are not in touch with that...?
