I wouldn't think there'd be a significant amount of alcohol that leaches from the barrel to impact the abv. What an interesting debate.

What can I say. Power of the ring!
Indeed, I am amused.By the way, has the sparkle in the dudes teeth in your avatar always been there? I JUST noticed it. I'm sure it does that in the good, the bad, and the ugly haha
Haha thanks for noticing. Incorporated that in a few weeks ago. Just a subtlety to keep things amusing.
It usually is a success for me if I have the water right. I did do a SMASH with Perle. It tasted like I was drinking potting soil. I never noticed Perle's "earthy-side" until it was used it at 60,20,10 and 5 in what constituted as an Amber ale. Used Briess 2-row. Cleared up after some conditioning or maybe I just got used to it...
So I guess my point is consider the entirety of a hop's character. Nearly poured that beer out until I realized (pointed out to me) that the hops were making the beer taste that way.
Plastic kegs? Try cutting the top out of one of those and lighting a 90,000 btu burner under it.....NO SIR, I DON"T LIKE IT!
Exactly! Don't be too surprised when, in the next ten years, most breweries will be going to plastic kegs. They have just recently worked out some mechanical issues with them and now more and more breweries are moving in that direction.
QuoteBy the time I get to brew again I will have forgotten how.
I resemble this remark.
Notice you haven't seen James Lorden around.
Going to make a smoked porter.
Well...it's been quite a while since my first date but if my memory serves me right, sex didn't happen on the first date... it was the second.And 9 months later.........whoopsie daisy!
That still makes me a beer lover. right?
