Wow, that would make me cry.

I've used them before with Cascade and they have a citrusy, sweet orange aroma and taste. Some herbal, earthy notes in the background. I think they would go good with most American varieties like Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, and so on.

If you're raising the temperature at the end for a d-rest, I think 60 would be fine. No need to bring it up to 70.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Quick ferement to FG, wait to crash?

Most of the time I'd say check the gravity a few days in a row and see if there is any change, but with that low OG you are probably done. So, go ahead and crash-n-keg.

Thanks guys. I do like sours and I'll have to check out Cascade. I've had some of the bottles of Cascade before and thought it a bit spendy, but probably better from the source. I'll try to check out some of the others that you mentioned.

I would say it depends on the citrus character. If it has a strong citrus flavor, I think it could get dinged. If the citrus flavor fades or is more in the background, then go for it.

I'm going to be in and around the Portland area from the 19th through 24th. I haven't been there since 2009 and was wondering what breweries are a must see? I was planning on checking out the Commons, but I need some guidance since there are so many to choose from.

I used the BrewTan B in the first experiment and most people couldn't tell a difference. I think there was a difference and probably more after some time in the bottle, however when I used it in my German Pilsner it gave the beer a weird grape flavor. I was planning on entering the beer in the NHC. The beer just tasted off, so I didn't enter it. I'm not sure why it was off, but the only change was the BrewTan B. This result leaves me on the fence, but I'd be willing to give it another shot.

What was your dosage?
It was the recommended dosage for the experiment. I'm not sure off the top of my head, but it was added to the mash, sparge, and boil.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Suggestions?

Another thing to keep in mind is that your FG will probably be pretty high considering all of the speciality grains that you used. It should be a chewy Imperial Stout.

I think US 05 will work fine as long as you use enough yeast for such a big beer. I've made an English Mild with the second runnings of an Imperial Stout which was ready to drink in short time.

Ingredients / Re: Flavor threshold for Caramel Malt?
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:43:08 AM »
Man I would think you are going to need more than 4 oz to meet your flavor and color goals. I don't think 4 oz in this beer will give much caramel perception but I could be way off. I personally would start with a pound if you aren't getting caramel flavor components from anything else like vanilla. I will let the more experienced take it from here.
I agree with goschman. You're not going to get much flavor unless you use at least a half to a full pound.

I voted for HM. I just used it in a German Pils...it's the only time I make a SMaSH beer.
