Ingredients / A beer by another name.
« on: April 08, 2014, 10:20:24 AM »
I was talking with someone about a beer he brewed, which is an established recipe. He told me that he changed the bittering and finishing hops in the beer. Now that's fine with me but the debate came when he is calling it the same name as the established recipe. Wouldn't changing the hop profile change the beer to something new?

Kegging and Bottling / Bottling my high alcohol beer.
« on: December 18, 2011, 03:28:30 PM »

     I have an APA, that because of a miscalculation in BeerSmith, I missed the gravity pretty bad. It came out to 1.090 OG and finished at 1.015 which means its at ABV of 9.8%. The last time I bottled a beer that the ABV was this high, the beer was overly carbonated. This might have been due to the honey and wine grapes in it though. My question is there anything I might need to do to make sure this beer is not over-carbonated and has enough carbonation?

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / All grain conversion
« on: December 15, 2010, 12:32:45 AM »
     I recently had to transfer with my job. I had to move from a pretty good sized house to a small two bedroom apartment. I started to brew all grain beers in the house. Now I have little room for space for my all grain equipment. I am going to continue to brew as I have some partial mash and all extract recipes. But my baby is an all grain recipe. I was wondering if there was a grain to extract conversion formula that would help me from having to start all over in developing the recipe.

Thanks guys! I start to think I had made a bad move. Jonesboro is a dry city and no beer sold. I did see a Mr. Beer kit in Kmart here so I thought for sure there would be more brewers here. I guess I just have to look a little harder.

Seriously? There are no brewers in the area?

     I am going to be moving to Jonesboro, AR very soon and was wondering if there were any homebrewers in the Jonesboro area.

  Thanks guys. I was going to ask about calibrating it but I seen a post by my friend "dhacker" about calibrating thermostats. Kind of funny we both are having troubles with thermostats.

    Thanks guys. I probably am going to experiment with the beer yeast. I figure what do I have to lose. I will probably make two loaves of bread, one with beer yeast and on with bread yeast. Then I can just pick the best one.
     I have made bread before using beer in place of water. However, I wanted to try and use the ingredients from my beer with actually using the beer. I decided this for two reasons, 1. I wanted to find some use for the spent grain, which can be used as an additive to the bread like whole wheat bread, and 2. I wanted to play mad scientist or baker in this case, and construct a beer and bread together.

General Homebrew Discussion / Thermometer Trouble...possible

      I had my brew day and everything went pretty well. I was cleaning up and had my brew pot soaking in brewer cleaner and parts soaking in the pot. Well the lady of the house tried to help straighten up and put my thermometer in the pot submerged in the water. Now the thermometer has some water in the dial part and I have no clue how to get it out without damaging the gauge. Does anyone know how to get the liquid out or if I leave it in will it cause problem?

General Homebrew Discussion / Bread and Beer

   I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using beer yeast to make bread? I am wanting to make some bread using the spent grain from my brew session. I want to make some bread that will accompany my beer, and what better way than to use the grain from the beer. I thought that since they both use yeast, I might be able to use the beer yeast in the bread, since the yeast imparts it own taste on the final product. It is an experiment that I plan on doing but wanted to see if anyone has experience with it.

Well no actual brewing this weekend. Going to bottle my Midas Touch clone I brewed a few days ago. Thought kegging but bottles just seemed right for this one, easier for me to ration out. Which hopefully I can take this to the TN Brewfest to pass out. (Well I guess I should have said hand out, better choice of words.)

Equipment and Software / Re: Propane Burners
« on: June 14, 2010, 10:20:29 AM »
I bought a Bayou Classic propane "cooker." It was a little more than what I had wanted to pay for a burner, but I think I got more than what I paid for out of the thing. When I first got it I opened it up all the way to see what it could do. Sounded like a jet engine. Needless to say it works and works great.

That is exactly what I thought.

  Good question? Though if you use only 10 of them as suggested in an earlier post that would leave 16 times $4 would be $64 in your pocket. That could buy some supplies.
