  1. Just finished this collaberation recipie today, and i have to say this is a good IPA! This is my secobd successful brew with mr beer and my fifth brew all together. Well last weeks finished brew was a mad scientist kinda thing and it turned out great and this collaberation recipie turned out great too. Cant wait to get my next recipie!
  2. It was at 5.7 abv when ibtested the fermented wort... this beer seems more like an 7 or 8 abv. mybfriends are buzzed after 1 and a half bottles
  3. I think if i would have conditioned it even longer if would have been even better... but i followed my hydromoeter and used weeks instead of months... but damn... i think i miscalculated abv
  4. Good news for those still following this thread! This beer finished yesterday and spent the night in the fridge. I just got it to abget together with friends and everyone loves it. Its not sour like my last few beers. Its a little dry but thats because of the apple juice. So if i take a little more care with this beer next time i make it it will be amazing! And i know i havent been on here but i havent given up just slowed down a lot. I have an ipa going still and the winter spiced ale. wish you guys could try it but it isnt fonna last long!
  5. I could drink the stuff lol... but i would rather brew it right and get a great tasting beeR instead of cringing everytime i take a sip just to get a buzz
  6. It was a puckery sour. Not like sour apple but id say more like vinegar. But lookingvat the liquid it seemed pretty clear... probably because i chilled it for a couple days before pouring. Next brew i gotta be more methodical with my cleaning. More consistent with ferment temps. All my brew tools were sanitized though i wash them and soak them in a pitcher of sanitizer.
  7. It actually seemed under carbonated. im starting to think more and more im not doing all i can to sanitize. So i just need to be better at that
  8. Ill start using my cooler and ill go buy a couple better stick ons.
  9. And it could be sanitation too rick...
  10. You know... me and the lady ade constantly fighting over the thermostat in this house... i tend to keep it where the stick o thermometers stay in the green.. but i know at night she turns it down. and i turn it back up. But the variance in temp has to be +-5°… theres another reason.. itll probably be better for me to brew in the spring when we dont really use the heater or ac. But those stick on seem to always be on the green.. so i dont know...
  11. And thats really where its been. So i guess pitching temp is my problem.
  12. But your right... in mu attempt to create a good pipeline i think im going too fast.
  13. It has to be part conditioning temp... thats really my only unknown variable other than i pitched to hi a temp. I think ill take a break until all is done. I love beer and i want to create good beers so i gotta figure this out
  14. Would it be in your good advice to try and condition it longer? Because if not im gonna dump it lol. I haye to do that but no one is gonna drink it this way
  15. Its frustrating... i probably did the same thing with the other three beers im doing.
  16. Temps in the fermenter were between 68-76°F
  17. Then thats probably it... maybe i didnt chill the wort enough. Damn...
  18. So this time was the oktoberfest hme. I did everything right i thought. Everything was cleaned and sanitized. It was in the fermenter at the correct temps for three weeks I have thermometers on the LBKs. I conditioned in the pantry for four weeks. Put in thr fridge for 2 days.. pull one out to try it and its sour as heck.... what am i doing wrong? Should i pull it out of the fridge and condition for another four weeks?
  19. It wasnt horse or rough tasting at all. Deffinitely didnt have a green or licorice taste. Im actually kinda optimistic. I bought that apple juice at a local grocer and i dont think they are allowed to sell unpasturized products. It jist said organic apple juice on the bottle. But hell thay was 3 weeks ago so i dont remember lol
  20. question.. how long should this condition after fermentation?
  21. Tasted it after testing it... woah... it tasted like wine. Was kinda dry but i read that apple juice will do that.
  22. So i took a gravity sample of this recipie if i followed the formula OG-FGx131.25=ABV then this should be about 5.8% ABV. 1.054-1.010x131.25=5.775%. I think i did that correctly.
