Just wanted to say thanks to those involved in the organising of this comp. Got a text today for my address and had yeast in my hands 2.5 hours later. Seriously impressive.

Does dry hopping at 35C change anything compared to a lower temp for dry hopping?

I've read online and noticed myself that dry hopping at high 20s+ doesn't extract as nice a flavour from the hops. Personally I'd skip bio transformation hop and just dry hop at a more normal temperature after fermentation has completed.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Oatmeal Stout
« Last post by Qs on July 15, 2019, 05:18:25 PM »
Yes I do recall the discussion about your Lovely Stout and I am delighted it was delicious, but that doesn't mean I want to make your stout. One of the main reasons for me all grain brewing is to perfect my own recipes otherwise I might as well buy All Grain kits or just buy beer from Tesco. And the reason for me being part of this forum is to be able to acquire knowledge from those more experienced and hopefully not condescending.

You can still look at other peoples recipes and see what they're doing. See what they say about it and then apply them to your own. Most people don't just brew a recipe off the top of their heads. I certainly don't, I love making my own recipes but I look at others for inspiration. I want to see over all how much roast they've used, was it chocolate or roast barley, how dark was it, what maltster, how much oats do most people use, any crystal, etc
