All Grain Brewing / Re: more efficiency questions...

I would say it is probably the crush that would make that big of difference.  How did the grain look after crushing compared to other place?

My go to yeast for Belgian IPA is WY3522.  To me, the tartness of the yeast complements the hops.
I've never used that one.  What temp do you ferment at?

Thanks for the suggestions Dave.  I like the Westmalle strain better also.

Yeast and Fermentation / Favorite yeast for a Belgian IPA?
« on: January 20, 2013, 08:34:36 AM »
I was thinking about making a Belgian IPA for my next brew and was wondering what Belgian yeasts work well for this style.  I really liked the Lagunitas example (can't remember the name).  Also, what american hops are a good choice that wouldn't clash with Belgian yeast character.  I have Apollo, Columbus, Citra, Cascade, Simcoe, and Amarillo to choose from.  Thanks, Dan.

That sounds very tasty.  I think I might need to make a hoppy Belgian soon.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Soapy off flavor

This thread is very interesting to me because I had a lb of Cascade hops that I swore gave my beer a "soapy" flavor, then I just attributed it to myself being overly critical.

I have to agree with the others - Best is wonderful.  The last Dubbel I made with it was the best one yet.

Imperial IPA.  This time I'm using less Crystal and Citra hops for flavor.

Good to hear you're back in the game...A buddy of mine makes a great Coffee Stout by using a french press and cold steeping overnight, then adds it to the keg.

I think keeping them at cellar temps after carbonation would be fine as well.

I'm brewing an APA with Apollo and Citra hops.

The Pub / Re: Your favorite Christmas beers?
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:51:25 PM »
This year for the first time, I made a Great Lakes Christmas Ale clone.  It came out very close to the original and my wife and friends all like it.  I don't use spices (ginger and cinnamon) very much at all, so this beer has been a nice surprise and I plan on making it every year around this time.

Hey Porter, Hey Porter...

All kidding aside, it would have to be the Barley Wine that I made 2 years ago.  It won a 1st place and came in second in Best of Show.  I still have one bomber left that I plan on enjoying over the holidays.

I can't decide because of my beer ADD condition...
