I read a news article from 2 years ago where commenters noted the similarities in the logos. It takes a pretty big lapse of judgement to think having a logo so similar, even if "legal," is a good idea.+1. I also feel that whoever mistakenly buys it thinking it is Magic Hat is probably getting a better beer.
The other advantage to storing at your parents is... wait for it...+1. You gotta really want it at that point.
the beer won't be readily available
At least in my house, a beer that is two hours away is far less likely to get popped before it's time than one that is in the closet in the hall.
That is SO going in my imaginary brew pub. thanks hopfen.+1. Awesome - never seen one before.
Since no one else has said anything yet - You can always just sprinkle it right in the wort...+1. I rehydrated it religiously for years, but I haven't seen much difference in attenuation after sprinkling in dry.
I have honestly never considered this issue with dry yeast. I've never had a problem with dry yeast fermenting just fine, either.+1
I suppose it sits for an hour or so after I rehydrate it. But I've never given it much thought at all.
All I know is I spent alot of years rocking carboys to aerate until they frothed and my beers have excellent head retention.I don't shake, I pour back and forth between buckets until the froth reaches the brim.
Am I mistaken if you froth it up during the aeration stage, those head forming proteins are no longer available when you carbonate and serve the beer?
I could swear I heard that somewhere. Most likely on the internet, so it must be true
Not from the Midwest are you? That does look good for brewing, as Martin says.No kidding. Definitely not Indiana water. I'm envious.
I've been thinking about trying out a short dry hop in the bottling bucket, but I think you need some steady circulation to max out your extraction in such a short time frame and I don't really have the means to do that. I have an ESB on deck, and I was on the fence on whether I wanted to dry hop. Maybe I'll try this out instead.+1. I agree - there has to be some steady circulation to pull that off. I've dry hopped alot of beers and usually feel I needed more dry hops or dry time. Hops are all about preference though.
