So Whats Brewing?

I'm missing Saltheart in more ways than one He always kept the homebrew conversation going here....soooooo...whats brewing? Anyone?

Currently have a"tropical" IPA in the fermenter , been on the IPA hiatus so Im excited to have one up and coming. Just brewed a 10 gallon batch of light lager on christmas day in hopes of having the timing right for early spring yard work

I miss him a lot too. He taught me a lot about home brewing through pmís and emails.
What hops did you use for your tropical ipa? I canít get enough of galaxy and mosaic hops.

Haven't been brewing as much the last few months so I tried using up what I had in the freezer instead of buying more! I used Cascade, Citra & of course Mosaic with more citra & Mosaic for dry hop. Hoping to keg today if its ready.

Robust Porter with some coffee and chocolate added. Still conditioning in the bottles for while longer. Not too shabby right now, but likely much better in a couple of months.

NEIPA likely up next for spring time. Been doing my "research"....Julius, Green, Doppelganger, Doubleganger, Grimms, Singlecuts....

Yum, those sound good. I'm not a home brewer but love what you guys are putting down. For you RI guys and ones that get Proclamation. The last batch of Derivative Galaxy was so good. Perfect ABV@6% and huge flavor. Our Xmas eve party had every one bringing the big guns like TH, Trilly, HF, Foam etc and the Proclamation held right up. Cheers!

I love the idea...but we would have to be careful on the rules of the event/location/etc. as far as "bringing it". I didnt chat with him extensively on his styles or preference so input on what he would brew would make it special! Ill be unemployed in a few weeks soo....I should have time!

"interstate transportation of alcoholic beverages"?

We could do some research on style.

my research turned up this psot by Saltheart

You get three things from hops...Bitterness , flavor and aroma. I love all the hop flavor and aroma I can get but I am not big on bitterness that is out of balance. Its the bitterness that people associate with highly hopped beers like IPA's which is too bad. Sam Adams Boston Lager has a lot of hop aroma but not the high bitterness.

When I make beer I use noble hops like Hallertauer Mittlefruehs and East Kent Goldings. The Mittlkefruehs are nearly perfect for my preferences because they have huge aroma , good taste but low alpha acid content so the bitterness is easy to control. The East Kent Goldings have a great (but different than Mittlefrueh) aroma profile and also lots of flavor. Their Alpha acid content is 2 or more times that of the Mittlefruehs so more care is needed to get the flavor without over bittering. Czech Saaz hops are another good choice to get flavor and aroma with easy to control

Haven't tried that as of yet, don't see it up around here.

I hear ya about the Dime, but some of the higher end beers now, like singlecut, are running $25 a 4 pack, and I can get a 750 of Buffalo Trace for $20
