Ingredients / cider
« on: January 08, 2013, 03:05:52 PM »
I am brewing cider this week i would actually like to do 2 batches but dont have the room.  I can't see any reason why I cant freeze 5 gallons of soft cider to use later for hard cider.  I usually use White Labs cider yeast, so I'm not using any naturally occuring yeast already presant in the soft cider to ferment.  is my thinking correct on freezing?

So the other day I was sipping on an IPA eating a dried granola snack and it occurred to me that I could use it in a oatmeal stout.  I was eating maple nut granola, so no fruit.  There should be lots of fermentables in this stuff.  I was thinking of seeping it in 155*F water before the boil with the grain.  Maybe a pound should do it.  Has anyone tried this?

How do you measure Alpha Acidity in the hops you grow?  Do you just go with the average AA for  a specific variety?

General Homebrew Discussion / Fresh Hops

I have been growing my own hops this year and was interested in using them straight off the vine.  I am sure I'm not the only one who has thought about this.  Do you use more or less fresh hops than dried?
