Ingredients / Bravo as a substitue for Magnum?
« on: October 08, 2010, 12:32:31 PM »
Hi all,

I'm brewing up some BVIP for the holidays this weekend and my LHBS was out of Magnum.  They recommended Bravo as a substitute.  I'm not familiar with Bravo so I checked it out online and it looks like the cohumulone is a bit higher while its Beta Acids are lower.   I'm wondering if anyone has used Bravo in place of Magnum for bittering with good success or if they think it would work well with Denny's BVIP recipe?  Alternatively, should I could run out and get some Northern Brewer?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Re-yeasting when bottlng

But the only time I add bottling yeast is when the OG is over 100 and the beer has been in secondary for months.  Otherwise, I haven't found it necessary. 

Denny,  So you wouldn't bother on a barley wine with an 83 OG after 5 1/2 months?  I had been planning on hitting it with some Nottingham when I bottle it next month but this is my first time doing a "long" secondary on a relatively high OG beer.

Thanks for any guidance.
