Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Help Me Tweak This Recipe
« on: May 12, 2014, 07:02:18 AM »
The bitter finish might be from the 6 oz of hops at 1 min. and not the dry hops. You could try adding some hops at 20-15 min and less at 1 min. If the bitterness is more of a grassy/vegetal taste then it could be the dry hops. I personally would use about half that amount for dry hopping for 5-7 days. I know others use 4-6 oz of hops when dry hopping, but I think it's a waste.

I'm going to my 1st NHC and I would very much like to have a beer with all of the forum mates.

brewing up an IPA this weekend. I never really brew IPAs but in the last few months I've been having fun with it. I've got a whole sack of munich and most of a sack of 2 row so I'm scheming for sure. got some farmhouse ideas in the planning stages, which is good because I need to ramp up the sour program again.
I've just gotten into making sours this year. I have a Flanders Red and an Oud Briun aging. I plan on making a Berliner Weisse next weekend.

I brewed a Brown Porter(1.050) and used Wyeast 1728. I can't remember the last time I made a Porter under 1.060.

I'm curious to know why you chose to go lower.  Personally, I get tired of over the top OG/ABV/IBU etc etc etc. A well-made 1.050 beer could be most enjoyable, but it seems like you're bucking the trend.
Same reason here.

Brewing a BoPils tomorrow. First lager in almost 2 years - new lager fridge !  1.050 OG / 40 IBU.  Weyermann BoPils and plenty of Saaz. Go figure.
So when it's ready, the weather will be warmer...enjoy.

Out of curiosity, if it is glorious now why not just bottle it and start drinking it?  You can save some to see how it ages, and still enjoy it now.
This is why I bottle mine every year. Then, after 2-5 years I have vertical tasting usually around the New Year.

Amarillo and Columbus for me.  They blend nicely.
I agree 100%

and my American Barleywine

I changed it up a bit this year by using Citra, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Pacifica hops...I call it Tropic Bomb.

+1 to doing whatever the heck you think seems right.  Don't ever take any one person's word for anything, including mine.  :)
I like that! I have to find out for myself most of the time even if it is the hard way.

Equipment and Software / Re: very frustrated with my Barley Crusher
« on: March 17, 2014, 02:01:30 PM »
I've been having the same problem lately and mine is about 4-5 years old. The last couple of times I've taken it apart and it still only spins one roller half the time. I know when I got it, it had a rubber ring around the driven roller and it broke off shorty after. I was thinking about that I should try and find another rubber ring, but it would probably just break off after a few uses. I'm also at a loss ???

The Carafa II is not very roasty. Maybe use 1 lb CarafaII and 1 lb of Chocolate Malt with the Roasted Barley.
Just a thought.
