Man, that is a sticky gooey head on that one! God bless hop oils.
Now this is sticky gooey meringue!

First pour of my "Double Whirlpool IPA". There is a large lamp about 5 feet directly behind the glass. Just a wee bit o' haze in this one.


"Double whirlpool" please do explain
Testing out some hypotheses proposed in the "Low Temp Whirlpool" thread. This beer has only two hop additions, one immediately after flameout for bitterness and flavor, and a second way down at 120F, with no dry hops. The 120F whirlpool is testing to see if you can retain more aroma than you might otherwise get from hot-side additions. Early results smell promising.

That's cool Eric. So you can pick up the added aroma?  Is it really smooth bitterness?

Is that your IPA ? Fantastic foam regardless. Hopefully the one I tap Friday has foam that good. If not, it won't be for the shortage of hop oils.   ;)

It's still a little green (young, not in color), and my keezer is set pretty cold to double-duty as a lagering chamber right now, so I'm not ready to pass judgement on flavor or bitterness yet. But I will say that there is a big aroma coming through that I can only attribute to the hops used in the lower temp whirlpool. It would be interesting to see how it compares to a dry hop of the same quantity, but it's certainly at an acceptable level for an IPA to me as-is.

What types of hopping rates are we talking here for your double-whirlpool? 1 oz / gallon on the flameout addition + 2 oz / gallon on the 120F? More, less?

Yeah, looks nice, Ken. Enjoying a cider of my own tonight. My wife is super thrilled with it.
Thanks. None of you old timers on this forum post pics.... Come on now celebrate your victories and post some pics!

Funny thing about pics.  I brewed a Belgian some years ago (10 or more) back when I first started culturing yeast.  It was gorgeous.  Brilliantly clear and golden.  Big rocky head that lasted forever.  I fermented it with yeast I had cultured from Orval and grown up in a starter.  I knew nothing about Brett at that time.  It tasted rank.  Weirdly non-hoppy bitter.  It was a dumper.  But it looked beautiful, even going down the drain.

Anyway, here's my latest dubbel.  Before and after.  This one's going to NHC.

Thanks.  I tweaked the recipe and it was all for the better.

Been brewing this one for around 12 years.

Looks great and the glass adds style points!

I don't see a beer anywhere on these pages I couldn't be friends with..... :)

Anyway, here's one of mine. Kölsch style...... Sorry about the flaky composition. I was looking for a set of grips for my wife's new revolver....
