Ingredients / Re: I need a new hop(s)

I have been very happy with my IPA schedule that I think I got here from @fmader: blend of amarillo,cents, Simcoe and Citra at fwh, 2oz Columbus @60, then the same blend from fwh at 20, 5, and dry. 1/2 Oz each in blend for fwh and 1oz each for the other additions. Turns into 16 Oz total for 5/5.5 gallons. All this is what I remember 2 bock and 2 double wood Balvenie' into the night. Fruity,dank, plenty of underlying bitterness. Works for me and yet I'm changing it up this weekend to experiment. YMMV

Not sure of total length, but I know she is running up 1 floor and not directly above IIRC from her There's always a project at the Redbird brewery thread in pimp my system. I think she has a pretty unique system that fits her needs and requires special consideration.  I don't have the answers she needs but do "think" I remember those facts from that thread

So good!  Been getting into old school punk/hardcore/ska, etc the last 10 years or so. Really love all of it I can find

Sorry for the high jack,  but if limiting to about 5% or less in an IPA, whats the appropriate (?) % for a darker maltier beer such as a big American Brown ale?
Edit for poor typing skills

I have subscribed to craft beer and brewing since nearly their beginning (missed the first issue) and I like it alot. I am definitely at the point where I need to drop it or BYO, think between them I probably have 10-12 unread issues: life is more important than reading about beer, right? I'll just save them and read them all on the beach when I retire in 20-30 years

Just got another text from him. He spent $100 @ Hill Farmstead on 5 growlers of goodness for next Monday or Tuesday night. Can't wait! Next morning may be a late day into work, maybe we will get lucky with another no snow snow day! Local school district out here in the hills cancelled school Monday and Tuesday due to cold weather and roads too poorly cleared for the busses to operate and a 2 hour delay this morning. Don't think we ever had snow days with no snow when I was in school; and what the @$!# is a 2 hour delay? Getting soft or I am just getting older and less tolerant?

I have seen the 3 layers before, but only after 1 day of harvesting, and not nearly as distinct, and did not last for more than a day or so. Not a regular harvester though, so not much experience

I tried a 6 as well, nothing impressive here. I think they were drinkable, and not rough to my tastes, but also really nothing IPA like. I would drink again if handed to  me, but will not buy again. I do love the cascading effect though, though as stated, it is wasted on this beer

Ska-mania? Big fans of 90's Ska music? Might Mighty Bosstones, Fishbone, Operation Ivy, etc?  ;D

Beer Travel / Re: Beer Trip in February

We checked out Belching Beaver while we were in the area 1.5 years ago and enjoyed their brews. we were driving though, and also hit Port/Lost Abbey and Mother Earth. I believe before our trip, Lattitude and Booze brothers were both recommended but we did not make it there. i could not tell you how close the others were to each other, or if the walk would be safe though, no info on that front

And as a crazy Stone fan boy, I bottle 90% of my homebrew in still painted Stone bottles. Not trying to pass off my home brew as theirs, I just love the bottles. Just another point of view
