All Grain Brewing / Re: Starch Convertion
« Last post by wobdee on Today at 06:25:49 AM »
I've been using Best Pils as my base and have heard from them the last crop has a higher than usual gelatinization temp and recommend a rest at 65c so I've been doing a 20/20/20/10 step mash at 62c, 65,72,76, gives me attenuation in low 80's.

I haven't tried it, but I'd be interested to know how it turns out for you.

All Grain Brewing / Re: What flavor should I expect
« Last post by HoosierBrew on Today at 05:48:39 AM »

I'm speaking of non-lodo brewing as I haven't used it in that format.
Here we go again... ;)



Yeah I know. :)  Sounds like there are definite differences though.

Hop Growing / Re: Selling hop rhizomes

If you can sell them locally, go for it. 

I always prefer to sell things I don't need anymore to folks that will use them instead just giving them away.  Often it seems like giving someone a thing makes it seem like "junk" and they appreciate it less.  Have them pay a few dollars for it and it becomes a prize they will use with pride. 

I have 2 kids in college (another one done and one who's still in HS) and appreciate any help in buying a text book or two that we can get.

Good luck!!

Personally, anywhere in France, I would stick to the wine, which is fantastic, rather than the beer, which isn't.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Hop Bag or no?

I like bagging mine.  Whole hop cones especially.  Pellets, don't need to so much unless using a lot.

It'll give you a toasty, somewhat deeper malt flavor as opposed to the pils alone,ie., a very nice beer.

Yes.

Ingredients / Re: Hibiscus beer

I brewed up a Hibiscus Wit a few years back. It worked very well. Just brew a super-concentrated liter and add it to the keg or at bottling. It gave my beer a pleasant pink color.

Yeast and Fermentation / Imperial Yeast A24 Dry Hop?
« Last post by golfgod04 on January 17, 2017, 08:13:26 PM »
Has anyone used Imperial Yeast A24 Dry Hop ? This is from their website "Dry Hop is a blend of A20 Citrus and A04 Barbarian.  When this blend goes to work on your hoppy beer, the hop aroma blows up.  The combination of these strains produces amazing aromas of citrus, peach and apricot that will accentuate your IPA, pale ale, and any other hop driven beer.

Temp: 64-74F, 18-23C // Flocculation: medium // Attenuation: 74-78%"

thinking of trying it with an ipa
