So it’s been about 30 hours since I first pitched and still no signs of activity. What confuses me most is when I woke up the day I brewed, my starter was alive and well with a big cap of foam. Alas!

I haven't tried a whole lot of hoppy beers aside from the one I was disappointed with so I'd rather hold my opinion on that for now because it could have been a programming error on my part. I'm going to try it again soon and will report back.

For really hoppy beers I increase hop amounts by 20%.  Seems to work for me.  I believe that will be dealt with in the new unit.

Don't have the handbook in front of me but there is a max they recommend for each bin. Do you just exceed that?

I assume you're using pellets?  You could probably get 3 oz. per bin easily.  Plus if you want to you can program a pause, pull out the step filter, and refill a cage.  If you use whole hops, the amount would be significantly less.


I believe picobrew recommends a max of 1.5oz per cage...I assume to allow for expansion once the pellets get wet.  You can do as Denny suggest  by using a pause step in the advanced editor.  If I am looking for a big 10min addition I often just program one for 11min and one for 10min and split the addition between 2 cages if I am not using all 4.

Yeah, I do realize you can pause and add more pellets. The potential for hops stands is also amazing. You could do a 24 hour (or longer) hop stand at 185 if you wanted.

So what you're saying is, you are creating a SEIPA, and the key character is from the 24hr hop steep. Hmmmm grassy

Awesome thx. I don't ferment much at 58d but I'm going to try to make a low ester blonde for summer, and I think 58f 3 days then 68f would work exceptionally on that, so my heffeweizen will have a buddy in the chest

The fermentation temp can also be played around with. Supposedly some breweries in Germany ferment much warmer.

The Brewers Publication book "German Wheat Beers" is actually an excellent resource.
