  1. I will use a hopsack if using one of my buckets. Commando if in a carboy.
  2. After 3-4 months mine has pretty much no flavor at all....just bitterness. I think I'm officially done with HME. Tried the API IPA last night and experienced the same thing. No flavor.
  3. This is why I don't use LBKs anymore.
  4. I've read that you only need to be concerned with DMS in pilsen malts when not boiling.
  5. "SlickRick07" post=371509 said:@m3n00b, with your Nut Brown Ale, how did you boil the extra 2 oz. of Fuggles? All for 60 min. or did you break them out? Did the extra Malt really thicken this one up? Wow...I'm glad you brought this up! I just tried one the other day and it wasn't very good. Very thick. I wouldn't add the extra malt again. Way too much. Also, my boil kettle was only 3 gallons at the time. Learned a lot since and I know I must have scorched the malt with 9.25lbs in there. I boiled the hops: 1oz for 60 minutes, 1 oz for 20, 1 oz for 5. We'll see how it conditions but it's not looking good now. All of the subsequent 5 gal batches taste awesome though.
  6. Thanks guys. I'm going to buy a 5gal glass carboy for a secondary. I'm brewing next weekend but beersmith says it should be around 1.137. how long should I secondary for with the cubes? I was planning on starting to drink at 9 months and keeping it around for years. This is my first huge beer. I brewed a 1.090 honey ipa early this year and it's finally tasting great.

How long are you going to ferment this one?? A high OG like that , 1.200 is going to take a very long time. What yeast are you going to use?? Thanks guys! I messed up my OG....I just checked and it should be around 1.137. I'm going to ferment it until it's done: SG hasn't changed for a week. I'm pitching on a WLP002 yeast cake from my brown ale. I'll finish with windsor yeast if I need to. I'm using these: RED FINISHING This blend uses characters to emphasize ripe fruit with hints of coffee, chocolate, and spice, adding great complexity to wine. http://oaksolutionsgroup.com/pages/products_newcart/enocubes.html
  8. I'm going to be brewing a 1.137 barleywine this weekend. I have 2.5 oz of enocube oak red finishing cubes. I want a moderate oak flavor. When should I add these? How long should they stay? How many should I add?

  11. Looking for any of these: Lost Abbey The Angels Share (Bourbon Barrel) AleSmith Barrel Aged Old Numbskull Victory Old Horizontal Three Floyds Bourbon Behemoth Avery Hog Heaven Anyone have a recipe? I'm going to pitch on my Newcastle clone's WLP002 yeast cake in 2 weeks. I would prefer it to be 10-12%. I will age it for a year. Edit: I found a ton of Barleywines in my CloneBrews book. None of these though. I'll probably add some oak to Rogue's Crustacean.
  12. I made up an imperial brown ale about 2 months ago. Tasted like garbage for the first 6 weeks. Finally it's starting to become drinkable. I figure in another 2-3 months it'll be even better. So glad I didn't dump it after a month.

My next Deffibrilator Dopplebock will be in bottles for longer than 8 weeks. I still have a few bottles from this batch and I will try to keep it for 2 months more. I have 2 other stouts and they are still n ot ready. In the meantime I enjoy beer made by large breweries. :popbeer: I still have 90% of this batch. I've been drinking my lower ABV 5 gal batches to tide me over. This might be the best doppelbock I've ever tasted. I'm not usually a fan.
  14. Well...about 9 weeks after bottling and it's starting to taste amazingly good!
  15. I bottled a week ago and it tastes pretty good already!
