Ingredients / Re: Aramis Hops
« Last post by snax on February 21, 2018, 06:47:31 AM »
Aramis is great as a late addition/dry hop, delicate citrus notes, but I'm not sure how well it would come across as a bittering hop. I've only used whole cone to dry hop.
Strikes me as a bit "fragile" despite its AAC content, has a low oil content. Full technical features via the Alsatian source https://www.hops-comptoir.com/6-hop-aramis-alsace

Love to hear how it works for you!

Ingredients / Re: Eureka - the best new hop since Mosaic

Great to hear -- I received about 10 1 oz samples this past weekend, and Eureka was one that I was intrigued by, along with a few experimentals from Hopsteiner. Now I know to keep and not give away in our club's "trash or treasure" monthly raffle!

Equipment and Software / Re: Improved Refractometer Correction calculator

This is crazy.  We're all getting different answers.  Novotny and Old Cubic are most accurate for mine all the way across.
I'm almost ready to propose a surprisingly commonsense solution.  We need no correction beyond our well-known factor for our own instrument for wort.  Simplify brew day by using refracto.  Ignore mid fermentation.  Use a hydro for FG, but wait until time tells you you're probably there.  You can surely afford one hydro size sample even on a small batch.  I have a vague recollection this is how we homebrewers first got interested in refractometers.

I modified my sheet to calculate attenuation and alcohol for each correlation and entered in stats from 12 sessions. Novotny Linear and Cubic and Old Cubic WAY undershot every batch and returned unrealistic attenuation and ABV Numbers.

And I get the opposite, from 5 data points though, not 12.  Maybe I'll change my tune after 12.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: "Shaken, not Stirred" Summary
« Last post by Philbrew on February 21, 2018, 04:02:43 AM »
I'm lucky to have a yeast factory in the neighborhood. They don't sell to individuals, but I can get less than 7 day old packs every Tuesday at my LHBS. I shoot him an email with a will call list, and add Kellers to my wife's shopping list. Rarely use yeast over a month old
I may have to try that.  Kellers is cool.

DIPA.  Mmm.  Best of the bunch.  Just a delicious, balanced ale.  Is there a chance of the base recipe being available outside of the X hop project? Hope so.
