Sorachi Ace Dryhopped berliner

Rhubarb berliner
plain berliner.
How much rhubarb did you use? I've found more than 1/2lb/gal overwhelming. It gives the beer a savory quality.

Noticed I was missing my temps by just a few degrees. I had boil-calibrated the dials before, but did it the dumb way and steamed the shit out of my fingers. Then I had this idea while in my shop:



Notice the boil over scorches from the starter. Makes my wife so happy.

Then I decided to check my Brewer's Digital Controller II



Digital is 7F shy of 212. Anyone expierece this? I have 2 other controllers to check but is there anyway to adjust it other than simply add 7F to the setting?

A few items from my birthday yesterday. First off, amazing homebrew proper glassware haul:



Second, did 10 gallons of a lambic-inspired brew, which will appropriately be titled "Lombic," as I live in Lombard, IL. 60% pilsner and 40% wheat, 5oz of aged hops. Mashed at 158 F and boiled for 90 minutes. Left 5 gallons out in in an old dog cage (to prevent raccoons and other critters from investigating) with a tarp on top (was supposed to rain) underneath a tree in bloom (unfortunately haven't planted fruit trees at our new place yet):



I'm going to let one ferment completely spontaneously, though the other I'm also going to add the dregs from the entire Armand'4 series, as I don't want to end up with 10 gallons of unpalatable liquid if my attempts totally fail.

This is my pale ale exclusively hopped with galaxy. As you can see it's slightly undercarb'd but still has enough carbonation to deliver a nice bite. I like to give all my beers names so this one is called Hitch Hikers Guide

What are your impressions so far on the beer with only Galaxy?

I really liked it! It may be a little scalding, but the citrus flavor is outrageous. My hop additions were as follow:

60: 1 oz
10: 1 oz
05: 1 oz
FO: 1 oz

Dry hopped 7 days: 2 oz
