  1. Cool thanks, i'll give that a try and cut out the honey malt from the above recipe
  2. hmm cool thanks for the input, how much honey did you put in the LBK? I'm thinking of ditching the honey malt all together as the color seems to be a bit dark for a wheat beer.
  3. My first brew day in over a year went off without a hitch. My OG came in a little under expectations, about .09 lower than in the recipe. but i'm pretty sure that's because i didn't have my mash efficiency variable set correctly in Qbrew.
  4. Hey everyone, So i'm building a Honey Wheat recipe, to have something nice to sip during the hot summer days, and i'd like to use some real honey in this one. From what i've read, i can add it to flame out and it will be effective enough to get some of that honey taste in there. What are your thoughts about using it along side some honey malt? Or should i just scratch the malt, and use a full pound of honey. Recipe is below. Thanks for any input. EDIT: Also i should note that when i add .5lb of honey into the "grains" section, it puts my OG right over the recommended max of 1.055 to 1.056. I figure with my lower mash efficiency will compensate for that, as i've only once hit my OG, it's usually always under Drunken Spaniel's Sunshine Wheat -------------------------------- Brewer: Nick Nikitkin Style: American Wheat or Rye Beer Batch: 2.25 galAll Grain Characteristics --------------- Recipe Gravity: 1.050 OG Recipe Bitterness: 21 IBU Recipe Color: 10° SRM Estimated FG: 1.013 Alcohol by Volume: 4.8% Alcohol by Weight: 3.8% Ingredients ----------- Honey Malt (Canadian) 0.75 lb, Grain, Mashed Two-row (US) 1.00 lb, Grain, Mashed Wheat (US) 3.00 lb, Grain, Mashed Mt.

  5. Will do haha. I've always wanted to do a high IBU IPA, and i think with this combo of hops, it should turn out wonderful
  6. I got all the hops i needed, and as a bonus they had Citra hops in stock! I've been searching for this one for some time and they've always been sold out. So i modified my recipe a bit, and this should be a pretty hoppy beer runken Spaniel's Spring Hop ---------------------------- Brewer: Neadric Style: American IPA Batch: 2.25 galAll Grain Characteristics --------------- Recipe Gravity: 1.079 OG Recipe Bitterness: 136 IBU Recipe Color: 12° SRM Estimated FG: 1.020 Alcohol by Volume: 7.7% Alcohol by Weight: 6.0% Ingredients ----------- CaraPils - [body, Head] 0.25 lb, Grain, Mashed Crystal 20L - [body, Caramel, Head, Sweet]0.25 lb, Grain, Mashed Crystal 40L - [body, Caramel, Head, Sweet]0.50 lb, Grain, Mashed Two-row (US) 5.50 lb, Grain, Mashed Amarillo - Floral, tropical, and citrus.

  7. Yea knowing my homebrew store though they wont have one or the other hop in stock, so i'll wind up replacing one or two most likely. Going to work on a Wheat one for summer time next me thinks
  8. So after a long absence, and a break from brewing. I got the itch to visit these forums and brew a batch again. So i took the grain bill from my Falconers Flight IPA, and the hops bill from the Collaboration IPA i made as my first IPA. This is what i am making this saturday.

  9. the entire case was gone within several days >.> i opened it on my birthday hehe. i might have a picture or two, i'll see what i can dig up
  10. so resurrecting a zombie. So i popped this one open about mid October, so about 7 months conitioned. It was darker than the usual tripel than im used to, but the taste was out of this world. Very happy how this turned out, and in fact i think it turned out to be a tripel and a half, it was bordering on a quad in terms of the fullness of the beer.
  11. Hey Guys, haven't posted in a bit as i've been busy with with work and finishing up with this semester at school. An update on the FlyHigh IPA... this turned out great! my best brew to date i think. The entire case was gone in about a week as after my friends have tried it they always seemed to come back the next day for some more Will be making this again for sure
  12. Didn't make a starter, i did catch a bit of citrus when i tasted it, but honestly it was like 8am so i wasn't quite awake yet. I'll post another update on the taste and such after i get to drink a bottle
  13. Success! my first true AG success, the FG came in at 1.010 which is great. The sample at bottling tasted great, and thanks to the dry hopping there was a nice strong hoppy aroma to it. Can't wait until May to pop one open
  14. good idea, i'll incorporate the process to this brew, i will want to make it again granted it turns out well enough
