    You also have the option of adding in some lactose. That will give you a lot of mouthfeel without being very sweet, and it won't have the potential to referment. Another option would be to make a...

    I'm not sure that I buy this. I whirlpool my beer, as I believe most breweries do. That's quite vigorous, not to mention the roughing-up the beer gets going through the plates of the heat exchanger....

    Well Eric, Thanks sincerely for all the help. I honestly didn't know about the fact that d.-strain yeast makes an enzyme that continues fermentation. On my end, it wouldn't affect packaging too much,...

    Their crystal is good. And they are cheap. I prefer Briess, but I'm not really sure there is much of a difference.

    Brut IPA: To Clarify or not to clarify?

    I am just finishing up my first attempt at a Brut IPA. I just did the second dry hop today, and the gravity has fermented down to an insane 0.098. I'm very, very happy with the beer thus far.

    But...

    Are you doing something to change the environment in the fermeter like agressive dry hopping, or raising the temperature drastically/quickly for a diacetyl rest?

    I'm working with a similar setup to yours. I dry hop when the beer is at 75%-80% of F.G. That's also the same time I begin the diacetyl rest.
