From #3 “Traditional beers generate hop flavor and aroma through late hop additions because the volatile oils that provide these properties are driven off in the boil. Mash hopping is targeting the aromatic oils and not the bittering oils. Mash hopped beers have plenty of hop flavor and aroma, yet t...

Thanks for your discussion Joshua. I remember reading similar arguments about FWH, but I decided to try it nevertheless. I used to put all my hops with large additions into late hopping (hop bursting) and I loved the result, so I know what you are talking about. When I tried FWH, I thought the only ...

Thanks guys. Maybe the mash hop is what got you hooked on BIAB beer Bob. So far it's a no then. I suppose I could pull the grains after a 90 minute mash, then throw in the hops for an overnight fwh hop, and carry on with the boil in the morning? Maybe not much advantage, or time saving. Thanks for t...

Good points Bob, Thanks. I guess I would end up doing more of a mash hop, which is maybe not what I want. Do you know much about mash hopping? Have you ever tried mash hopping? Do the aroma oils have a high affinity for grains as you say? Do you think that not enough would stay in the wort? Thanks p...

There is a vessel that is filled with water ready to heat, and there is a vessel with a false bottom ready to mash, and there is a vessel ready for the boil. Now be careful, 99% of homebrewers get this wrong, how many vessels do you have? EDIT: You also have a vessel to ferment in... Tricky one :th...

Hi there, Has anyone added the 10, 5 and 0 min additions straight into the cube and then filled with the hot wort? Do you think it would make it to bitter or to much of a hop blast? The recipe I was looking at has 30g of cascade at each addition (so 90g in a hop sock and bang it into the cube) I am...

Quick update Mally, We had some people around this evening, proper beer people, and I poured them some of the Tribute by mistake (I have several lines with picnic taps on in that freezer/beer fridge thing and I haven’t been labelling them with masking tape/painters tape tags lately). Any way they th...

Thanks for the discussion Lylo, I realise all that stuff. That’s why I said real-ale “simulation” rather than “real-ale”. The way I do it seems to work to produce low carbonated beer, with less harsh carbonation. There is a good discussion on all the points you mentioned on the Real-Ale thread. Good...

Todd, here’s an update for you on your Styrian Goldings. I understood it was the late additions that were supposed to be moved to FWH, but it doesn’t really matter because I am putting all of my hops into the FWH. For 10 gallons, after pulling the bag, I bring the wort to 155F and throw in 1lb of ho...

Don't you guys worry about hot side aeration? Getting any of the wort oxidised when its over 80 degrees by splashing it around is risking taste problems...... Keelbolt, as I'm reltively a beginner, your question had occurred to me before, and I was ignoring it and putting my head in the sand, so I ...

:lol: Three vessels flips his lids and and walks out. One vessel flips his lid and walks out. They bump into each other outside with a clash and a bang. Then Nuff comes along, he’s drunk again. You can tell he’s drunk because he’s singing Irish songs, with a slurred voice and an Australian accent. T...

Great post Todd That’s a bold statement Yeasty! When I’m at my limit with life’s commitments and work and no peace or rest from the toil, and no rest from the responsibilities of my job, I often talk about just living in a shed at the bottom of someone’s garden with a “transistor radio” (one of the...

Hello DarrellD, fellow pot club member. How do you like your pot? I got a second one today. I ferment in the kettle and I was getting behind, what with my extended family and all, and their drinking habits. It’s the oddest thing but I couldn’t find one, the other place was out of stock. I was gettin...

Hi HbgBill, That sounds like a lot of fun and this: "Well, there is a hint of grapefruit.. but, the overwhelming thing the strikes me is FLORAL with the hint of citrus. Very mild spiciness," sounds definitely like the kind of tipple Guinges likes/makes. This Friday evening I've run out of my ususal ...

Can you come up with any BIAB jokes Joshua? Bit early in the morning here so my attempts are a bit pathetic: Empty vessels make the most noise, so three vessel brewers make more noise. Why did the BIAB brewer yelp? - someone else pulled his bag. What does EOBV-A mean?...F**k knows :) (just kidding PP)

Thanks very much Nik, nothing new under the sun eh! I love re-inventing the wheel, keeps me occupied any way. The ideal bag would be elastic, something like a large water balloon, or a condom. I wonder if there is such a thing in food grade? they have flavoured condoms so they can't be that toxic :)

For beers that don’t require ageing or high carbonation. Maybe a real-ale sort of beer… Wash out with soap to get the orange juice taste out. Rinse with water and then Starsan. Put the beer in before fermentation is complete. Intermittently check with a squeeze and release pressure by unscrewing the...

Mally, My wife is drinking it after only 3 days in the keg, but we ran out of my FWH only IPA which we are addicted too. She says she likes it and it's "malty, earthy (Marris Otter), soft, kind of like a cream ale, not overly hoppy." I’m reluctant to drink it, although it is improving. It just doesn...
