I know we had a discussion going about WP temperature and aroma. I Used to do FO like you mentioned but know do it as a WP a 180-170 for 10 or so. Now I think stopping the cooling for even longer in NEIPA is not really a problem because I don't think you care about the protiens dropping out anyway. On a clear beer I like to get to cold break quickly
Man you know it's gettin' serious when "I could tell you my beer recipe but then I'd have to kill ya..."
I was of the same mindset @brew_cat regarding the fast coldbreak but I've been doing a 170ish WP with all my IPAs for a while now and haven't noticed any change in clarity of finished beers.
You can't blame a guy for protecting the commercial goodies! R&D baby, it's all good!
It is for my short time at the brewery. Did learn. Got to brew. What the quest like. Not what i want. Even at my house. Brew beers. What other people have a taste for
Contractual intellectual property stuff.
@wilcolandzaat you are correct. In the commercial world it isn’t about you...
Yes I know...it was joke..
Many many breweries give out there recipes it's a sign of flattery. Also it's free advertising. A friend buys some 2hearted and says. "I respect your opinion about beer and if your trying to brew it it must be a good beer I'll buy some"
Although true often they are not the total recipe or 100% accurate. They usually only list the malts and hops, which I did.
Yes and also it's hard to scale down a recipe so adjustments need to be made. Sam Adams has always given their recipe hasn't hurt their sales. Heck Bells gives their recipe and encourages people to harvest their yeast from their bottles. Just don't use their name in your advertisement which apparently is what NB did. Common courtesy really
There aren't many common store bought brews I'd want to clone.
I don't think of them as clones. But if I see a recipe that looks good I'll give it a go. The few I've done have always come out better than the original. Could have something to do with freshness. They are always popular on my taps especially with those who aren't into some of my other concoctions sours and stuff. Have to brew some for the masses
