General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Switching to Whole Hops!

Looks like two shipments? Freshops and some Puterbaugh Pounds? ;D

Pardon a quick thread drift, those of you who know Dave @ freshops, what is the best way to get a hold of him?
Telephone?  Thanks

I love whole hops BTW.  The packed freezer is a sickness at my house.

I might be coerced into the Summit for bittering, not so much for flavor.  I would say the amarillo are playing the late role there.
Thanks for the post, I did look at the recipe wiki last night.  Nice resource.

The link to a complete set of CYBI is great, thanks.  Not sure which one is the Belgianish AIPA, but will research.

Its the weekend;  Cheers.

Thanks for the tips fellas.

Will try the rye, a little wheat...some sugar?
Ferment the 3711 cool...lower to mid 60's to bring some spice but not as much phenol.

Thanks for the ideas.  Different strokes is what makes the beer craft interesting.  8)

55 minutes of pure crap followed by 5 minutes of frantic comeback.

Well, they are TOBOWING around the country.  The kid is a lightning rod!
You may want to reconsider the black lava porter whatnot. :D

I want to make one, and am looking for some tips or a recipe. 
True, I have not done a lot of research, but thinking about something like a triple with lots of hops?
A hoppy saison?

I will be using wyeast 3711. 

How about it?

Numbers shumbers.  Folks in the NFL study up.  Like they are not preparing for a Tebow skill set game plan?

Sorry, I should be stoked, I know.  We are on a win streak with the lowly Lions  :-\  coming to town.

That's not going to work long term.

My thoughts exactly.

I saw this picture recently and thought of you.  heh.

Beer Recipes / Re: Amber Ale: To Dry Hop or Not to Dryhop?

I recently had my local's Imperial Red ("TBC Red Dragon") which got the creative juices flowing...

I see you are going to have a nice red color there.  Cool.  Seems to me some nice dank aroma would be good.

I guess you could split the batch and dry hop one and not the other? 
And then just give the non dry hopped one to your friends... ;)

The Pub / Re: Watcha planting this fall?
« on: October 27, 2011, 08:32:06 AM »
Wow, folks with mild winters have it nice! Most of my "fall" planting occurs in late August.
I have some peas that are flowering right now, time will tell if I was too late.

That said, I did haul a ton of homemade compost in this weekend before the storm:

Made a new garlic patch.  Little late on that but they are in now.

Anybody here plant garlicos?  That is what I call them anyway.  They are the bulbuils that form at the top of the garlic scape if you let them go....I let a few go each year and plant the fat ones.  Here they are in the flower, next year they will be about the size of a quarter and a single onion shaped bulb.  I love some good hardneck.

And a final fall garden shot for years Centennial and a butternut background.  Cheers.

Any comments welcome, but am mainly looking for: is it missing the dryhop??

As I am sitting here sucking on of of B-Hoppy's Cascade candy...yum
I am thinking why not dryhop? 
Maybe it is inappropriate in an Amber?

I am not really a fan of the Amber, and don't brew it.  So don't listen to me much, but I love the results of a fat dryhop. 

When do you move into the new brewery?   ;D

I see you added baltic porter in there, that was going to be my guess...a session strength baltic porter? 

Not sure on the cherries; couple pounds of special B and a warm ferment?:D

I looked for it yesterday but it was not in at my store. Soon I guess.

She told me that 2011 Celebration would be in this week!
The only reason that I mentioning that for Tom...because SN (wadda they know) is calling it a Fresh Hop Ale. ;D

I guess you can drink that one. :D

Spitting wet globs of snow this morning. Should get a hard freeze tonight.

I'm thinking about heading home early;
burn me some wood and toast a few punkin seeds. 8)

+1 on the citra; and the Nelson Sauvin have some weird tropical fruity flavour to me. 

Not sure what was said on the brewing network RE Simcoe,
but I love it combined with equal parts Amarillo.  Have fun.

About 90 minutes later:

Ain't America grand?  Man are we spoiled, and we don't even know it.
