  1. Warmest I ever pitched 05 was 70 and my beer came out just fine. Any warmer the active fermentation temps could hit almost 80. I'd give it more time and ice packs.
  2. Update on the Simcoe IPA. It is delicious. I really like the flaked oats addition. Gives it more body and mouthfeel. I it's definitely going in all my pale ale and IPA.
  3. Saturday I brewed a 5 gallon batch with the same grain bill, adding 8 ounce of flaked oats with all Simcoe Hops. I'm hoping the addition of flaked oats will give more body. If it turns out how I expect this will be my base pale ale grain bill.
  4. Both of my batches came out great.
  5. I brewed another batch with the base grain bill and yeast but substituted Azacca for the hops. So far, the samples I have handed out, I'm getting great feedback. Everyone likes it.
  6. Another phenomenal brew from me. Well balanced, great aroma, flavor, color and clarity. Out of two cases I have a six pack left after handing out samples to friends and family. This one is definitely in the rotation with no tweaks.
  7. I cracked a bottle after conditioning for over a month and a half and all I can say is WOW!!! All the flavors have blended well. It's a nice balanced ale with great color, clarity and a subtle mint flavor from the hops. My wife and her bestie have laid claim to the batch. This might go into the rotation with no tweaks.
  8. Everyone I let try this beer loves it. Might be one that goes into my rotation.
  9. The yeast I got in a trade and the hop was leftover from a brew my cousin and I made a few months ago.
  10. Bottled this batch yesterday and thought, hey, why not put 16.9oz in to a flip top bottle and not carbonate. Refrigerated over night and poured it today and WOW!!! Nice color, balanced malt and bitterness with a huge minty flavor. Let my cousin and his girlfriend try it and they love it.
  11. The farmhouse ale is coming along nicely. Cold crashing later this week then bottling on Saturday.
  12. Yesterday I did a 30 minute hop stand with my Smash Ale and all the hot break smutz settled to the bottom of the boil kettle. I was able to keep about 90% of it in the kettle when I racked to the fermenter.
  13. Even with shipping I'm still paying less than I would at my local homebrew store. Last time I bought Citra there it was over $4 an ounce.
  14. Yes, $23 for a pound of hops is a little pricey but when it's the only place I can find Citra I'll pay it.
