« on: September 19, 2016, 02:58:56 PM »
Fall is here and winter is coming I think its time to make some dark beers. I am wanting to make a nut brow ale. For the nuts I was thinking about using pistachios. I have never use nuts in any beer before and I am not sure how to go about using them. how would you guys recommend going about this?

I Have made a porter and the recipe says to keep at 65 degrees for the first week then put in a secondary fermenter and move to 35 degrees room for 6 more weeks before bottling. It has been in the secondary fermenter for 3 weeks at 35 degrees I am wondering if it is at the right FG and bottle it now what will be the difference be if I wait the full 6 weeks? Why do you move it to a cold room?

Im going to make a 5 gallon batch of Pumpkin ale and was going to use 4 Wyeast 1056 American Ale Yeast. The Original Gravity will be 1.079 and the final gravity will be 1.012. The ABV I am shooting for is 8.8%. Is this to much yeast to add? What are you thoughts and comments? And any other tips for a pumpkin ale would be great too.

I live in Montana I had a guy recently tell me I could come pick his hops. I asked what kind they were and he didnt know. All he could tell me is that they have been at the house since the prohibition days. Does anyone have any idea what kind of hops they could be? Or how you would find out?

Thanks for the help! I am going to keep the beer in the fermenter and see if its any good to drink still after exploding all over. Next time ill add less yeast and try doing the blowoff.
