  1. I'm building another IPA recipe, will be posting soon, however, I do not know when to add the used leather shoe? During aroma or dry hop????
  2. Yeah!
  3. hehehehe
  4. ive slightly over filled my LBK past the recommended mark on the side so I could get a little more out of the volume and had over flowing issues from the vents and as well a very lively active fermentation in process
  5. I use a bear trap for my yeast traps, not as effective as long as you have lots of patience i'm still waiting and its been six months.
  6. he stole those words from that coach named hairball
  7. well i'm about to try out the Omega yeast packets, and recently got the Gigayeast DIPA packet in for a creative NEIPA experiment!!! Began another saison/brett this next weekend until some a$$hole stole my yeast packet off of my front porch about 30 minutes b4 I got home! but I didn't know it was shipping so soon. I just hope they enjoy the yeast slurry fermenting into their belly!!!! IDIOTS!!!!! LOL! So I just got back an hour ago from my LGBT, uh I mean my LHBS and decided with the White Labs American Farmhouse Ale blend to use in place of the stolen yeast.
  8. Are you talking about Rick? BBBBBWWWWWWAAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAAA!!!!
  9. will be transferring this Coopers Traditional Draught into the secondary fermenter Saturday, so I tried a small sample shot glass yesterday and really impressed how this is gonna turn out! almost a cross from an Australian ale and a mild English bitter. I used 2 ounces of whole williamette hops, along with some pellet hops as well and it sure shows in the taste. I used safbrew-33 for the heck of it, and satisfied how it turned out as well. The real test will be in about a month and a half when it'll be already bottled and ready to drink
  10. I had a yeast infection once
  11. if it tastes good don't dump it. I had a recent keg over carbed and ended up pouring it into a 2 gallon pitchr, let it settle down in the fridge and drank it. it was great tasting, just too much foam regardless what I attempted
  12. i'll give it a try thanx Bonsaii!
  13. since I have 8 ounce packets, I up the maltodextrin by another 4 ounces. I usually only add this combo only to a light Pilsen, wheat or lager with little body/ABV% from a recipe kit. and when I brew a higher ABV% beer I usually don't add either or may just kick it more with the dextrose for additional fermentable. So hotrod u will be fine with what u have, if for any reason that u may lose the mouthfeel of a beer go ahead and kick up the maltodextrin another 4 oz.
  14. Thanx Nick!
  15. ive got 5 cans of American Lager thinking of doing some crazy experiMENTAL recipe this weekend. brew it as a lager by either saflager 23, or the 34/70 version. it'll be a definite 5 gallon attempt, but any suggestions on the hops I could use would help!
