Yeast and Fermentation / Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale
« on: May 29, 2011, 07:19:18 AM »
I just picked some of this up and I was going to use it for a Scottish 70 and possibly for a IPA or IIPA.  I have never used this strain before and I was wondering if anyone could give me some idea of what to expect.  Any comments would be appreciated.

Beer Recipes / Bert Grant's Perfect Porter
« on: May 05, 2011, 02:43:17 PM »
Does anybody remember Bert Grant's Perfect Porter.  I loved this beer and I was wondering if anyone has a clone recipe for this?  Also, when did this brewery close?  Any details?

Kegging and Bottling / Astringent taste a few days after tapping
« on: April 30, 2011, 07:39:54 PM »
I kegged an IPA and the first two days it tasted great.  Then, it started tasting astringent I think.  I can describe it as a lingering bitter aftertaste and almost dry.  I know IPA's are suppose to be bitter, but this is just different.  What really has me stumped is that it tasted great the first two days and now it's not good.  I dry hopped with Columbus and the aroma is considerably down than before.  Any suggestions as to what happened? :-\

Ingredients / Blackprinz malt

I just bought some of this because my LHBS didn't have any Carafa left.  Is this a good substitution?  What is the flavor like because I plan on making an India Black Ale?

Ingredients / Vanilla Beans

I plan on making my regular porter next week, but I want to add a couple of vanilla beans.  My question is when should I add the beans?  I thought that I read somewhere on here that they should be added to fermenter, but I can't remember if you should wait until most of the fementation has been completed.  One more, should I split the beans open as well?

The Pub / Spinal Tap

I really like the Spinal Tap references from Denny :D  When my brothers and I get together and drink a few brews we start reciting lines from the movie back and forth.  This of course makes our wives  ::)

Ingredients / Rye Malt

I just tasted my first Denny Rye IPA and I love the wonderful spiciness of the rye malt combined with the Columbus hops. I was just wondering if anybody has used rye malt in other beer styles besides IPA?   ;D
