re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
Not a bad idea, but I would have to account for the sugar in the OCP added at flameout. Might make for a bigger beer than predicted. Definitely going to have to taste it after primary fermentation to make sure I don't add too much sweetness from the secondary OCPs. They're a guilty pleasure of mine ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
I haven't tried it yet, but that sounds like the ideal way to me. It's concentrated so it doesn't add a ton of volume. The cold brew method is less bitter and acidic. Cold brew also has the benefit of making mediocre coffee taste like good coffee. That might save you a few dollars on your brewing co...

re: Frozen glass bottles of Amberbock, will they now break at room temperature? - puffulufogous
water expands when its frozen, not when its thawed. If it hasn't burst by now its not going to when you thaw it. The taste, carbonation, and body on the other hand may not be very good. ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
Wow that does sound complicated. Maybe consider cold brew coffee concentrate instead of beans. The cold brew really cuts bitterness and acidity in my experience. ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
interesting. I honestly wasn't that worried about abv after fruiting. I noted the pre fruit gravity only to make sure my process was yielding a product close to what beersmith predicted. I.e. no wild yeast, good mash efficiency, adequate pitch rate....

[quote]Did you steep the zest in a neutral spirit to help extract flavor & sanitize the zest? Is that even necessary?[/quote] No, I chucked it in the boil for the last ten minutes to sanitize it.

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
I didn't do an American wheat, but my blood orange version if bugs hefe was not too far off stylistically or flavor wise. I used blood orange peel in the boil and the flesh is the primary fermenter after a few days. 4lbs of blood orange that I zested, peeled, segmented, cubed and froze was good for ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
Been reading a lot about those recently for my apa that I am trying to brew. Either will work for the ipa, but the us05 will attenuate a little bit more and have fewer esters so probably better for a west coast ipa. Both are pretty flocculant so I don't think either are great for neipa, but you coul...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
alright I think I am figuring it out. So I am trying to make a APA that showcases the sabro and some citra. I want aroma and hop character to come through with moderate bitterness, but still be balanced by some malt character. So far I am at 8lbs 2row 2lbs white wheat 1lb 20L caramel 8oz acid m...
