    Brew Day!! Watcha' got, eh!? 2018

    I heard horrible things about the CTZ hops that is why I only buy Columbus hops for this brew. The crazy LHBS guy tried to give me some CTZ once, but me being no sucker quickly informed him to bring me Columbus or nothing! He heard me, because it only took him like 5 seconds to have a bag of columbus hops ready, I must of rattled him because he accidentally wrote CTZ on the package and scribbled it out. Hahah. What a maroon!

    What are these white dots?

    So right Mate. If it tastes right then just roll with it, but like you said, no one wants to see that in the morning!

    With the wooden spoon was there a whisk of infection?

    Unsure really. Have you tasted a sample yet? It gets ugly in there, sometimes I am glad I cannot see what is happening because of the opaqueness of my fermenter.

    Johnny! You saved my dignity with that post, see there is a difference, but I am picking up from actual use that they all are pretty similar, not a bad thing at all. I will be trying the US-05 on my next pale ale or if things work out I will splurge and get some wlp 001. I will also try to reclaim some slurry from this joystick yeast which is supposed to be a pacman clone or something. It has been aggressive so far but clean.

    I meant to write and a chinook dry hop with the cascade and centennial in the boil.

    That looked liked a nice brew with the cascade, centennial and chinook dry hop. Well done.

    Hahah no I have never used US-05, luckily for my battered ego! But I actually never knew that! I had heard that mangrove Jack's M44 yeast is also the same, I have used that one. I remember it being aggressive and I think starting in around 10 hours and finishing fast to, but my notes say I kept it in for 12 days, so who knows. On another subject has anyone used Tomahawk hops? I was going to use Columbus hops in a brew but ran out and tossed in the Tomahawk hops, did I ruin it? Hahahahah! Cheers Norris

    The white labs 001 California ale yeast is sometimes known as the chico strain because of it use in Sierra Nevada brews, is what I know about them.

    I think it will be awesome, probably even XPA tasty like a Balter. In my mind I see tropical fruit flavours jumping out the glass with a nice bitterness. But yeah we will see, he has to do the hard part now and ferment it!

    Nice recipe Captain.You weren't kidding about combinations, I count 4 hops, well 5 with bittering. They all would work well together, I like the nelson sauvin dry hop, good touch that will bring something extra to the table. I also really like mosaic and I pick up some dank from it. I think this is going to be a top notch brew. What do you think of the chico strain? I have heard it is clean and has great hop character. Ever used the San Diego strain? I heard it is similar but also allows the malt to come through and make the same beer seem more balanced. What do you pick up from the chico strain? Does it floc well? Cheers Norris
