  1. that is a lot of beer. more than i would be able to drink for sure. what's the style you're shooting for?
  2. on topic, downloaded the 2019 report for kroger spring water i use and built profile in BS. will go with the suggested water additions for next IPA i'm finna brew this week maybe. will see if it's a big difference.
  3. @Big Sarge i just went to LHBS and picked up some hothead. have a recipe and ingredients for "Neptune IPA" from BYO website? will do a hot garage batch with it. gonna get that bitch up to 99 degrees or so next week!
  4. im not sure, but it gives off fruity esters at higher temps, plus, i mostly brew ipa's so it's a good fit i think. i'll bet a wheat beer would be nice too.
  5. hell yeah! lots of times. hothead is one of them, and the Voss Kveik. used them both. do a hot Texas garage batch IPA with it. no temp control needed. did an ipa last summer and temp got up to 100 deg in my garage. turned out so good! i think the brew finished in like 3 days. crazy.
  6. Think I’m gonna brew tomorrow. 4 gal batch of a citra hop bomb dipa. I have had the uncrushed grains for some time vacuum sealed. Gonna use mangrove jack west coast yeast. Indoor batch. High 90’s here tomorrow.
  7. stole yeast from 3 bell's oberon's tonight. started with a small starter on the stir plate. will prop it up one more time in 3 or 4 days. 1st time to try this. gonna brew an oberon clone in about 1 week or so.
  8. used K97 German Ale yeast. fermenting at 65 degrees in my ferm fridge. we'll see how the finished product turns out. i was going to follow the normal ale schedule: 2 weeks ferm and one week in the keg. perhaps i should consider letting it sit in the keg for awhile longer to condition. all i have to go by are @Cato's pix of his altbier. looks good!
  9. well the wort smelled great! dark and toasty just like i imagine it will taste.
  10. went with the Altbier. mainly b/c i've never brewed one before (or drank one to my knowledge). wort tastes dark and roasty. this is gonna be good.
  11. thinking about brewing in the morning. can't decide between a citra hop bomb dipa, or an Altbier that I got all the stuff for.......#homebrewindecision
  12. should work good. i just leave mine out on the counter until pitching. always seems to work fine. i'll bet it will take off when you pitch.
  13. You will be golden! All you have to do is make the starter and shake it up every now and then. Better than nothing!
  14. it's better than nothing. i've done some starters the day before brew day. i think it helps. my last brew had a 3 day starter and it took off like a sonofagun.
