    You and @Cato are making dust clones. If you think their beer is good, you should try their food. Some of the best ive ever had
  2. Had to search for this tonight. So much good information on here, all you have to do is search.

    Hops

    I guess I forget that what i can get, others cant.
  4. @Enzo i knew these guys would respond for ya. I dont really bottle anymore but i used to batch prime which is better in my opinion, but also takes an extra vessel. If you use the drops from Mr Beer, I found that what they recommended for a 12 oz bottle was what i would use for a 16 oz bottle and it was still a little over carbed.

    Hops

    I forgot all about that beer. I thought it was so good and then it became a one and done beer. It would affect how i tasted things all night long. Delicious beer though
  6. What are you planning to carb your beer with?

      Right, I was wondering the same thing -- cold steeped roasted grains, oak, etc.  This sounds like a lot of fun!

    First batch

    There is no magic time line. Only way to really tell is a gravity reading. However, if you tasted it and its not sweet, then id say its done. I usually keg mine around 2 weeks. 3 weeks has always seemed really long to me but I guess its better to error on the side of caution. Nothing worse than bottle bombs
  10. Im always hoping i can make such an event but im probably more 50/50 right now. I think OH is a good area cuz theres a few people right in state that may decide whether or not they come. Last year we went to IN where no one lives and it was just you, me and josh for the bulk of the trip. I have been speaking to the wife about dropping her off in Chicago by her BFF and me continuing on to Three Floyds. This time it would be more of a bootleg operation
  11. That would absolutely be fine. I’m sure people would recommend cold crashing for a day or two. really though, day 23 would be fine too. You could cold crash on your day 19, then bottle day 23. Which would also be perfectly acceptable what temp have you been fermenting at? If it was 60, then you may have problems. If it was at 65 you should be fine. Before you bottle your first batch, make sure you read up on how to prime your bottles. Don’t go off the mr beer recommendations otherwise you’ll have over carbed beer.
  12. So only two people voted???

    pH strips are kind of garbage. I bought a pack, used them once and have never used them since. Garbage

    SMASH IPA

    Lol, i dont mean a literal ounce, i just mean the measure of an oz. and not at all those times. One addition at 60, one at flameout and one at dry hop. But really were saying the same thing, im just complicating it. If i say go oz for oz with the same AA hop, and youre saying go ibu for ibu, isnt that really the same end result? Im just trying to drive home the fact that bittering with columbus vs citra (off the top of my head those ones i believe are both around 14%?) youll get completely different results. Sorry for complicating this easy experiment

    SMASH IPA

    I agree with you fully. But one of the most important lessons I learned is how different hops bitter even though they are the same AA. Bitter with an oz of warrior vs cascade. You know what i mean? Then after you understand that hops can have similar stats but completely different results, then maybe go ibu for ibu. Thats my thinking at least
