Equipment and Software / Re: Welding Information.
« on: May 29, 2010, 07:06:24 AM »
Thanks for all of the information.  I've been considering buying a welder and trying my hand at building a brewing sculpture.  Before I read this thread, I figured I'd get a welder at Harbor Freight Tools, but now I feel that they're probably not of a good enough quality. 

Would any of the 115 Vac MIG welders at the following link do the job for building a stainless rig?

My wife and I have made spent grain cookies.  If you're interested, I can post the recipe(s).

Brewing a Roggenbier, bottling a cilantro stout, and moving my SA triple bock clone to lager in the kegerator.  It's shaping up to be a great weekend!

What did you make?  My recommendation would be to buy a commercial example of the same or similar style and compare. 

And I have a question about the difference between a hoppy flavor and a malty flavor.

Hops provide bitterness and aroma while a malty flavor is sweet.  Again, I'd pick up a commercial example of an IPA, which is a hop-forward beer, and maybe a bock, which would be an example of a malty tasting beer.

Heavy on the soy sauce and molasses, please!  ;)

Is that your review of the SA Triple Bock?  I've never had it, but I saw the recipe in Microbrewed Adventures and found it intriguing.

I didn't really get a chance to find all of your suggestions due to traveling with a group of co-workers.  I did try Shiner bock and Black Beauty stout, though.  Not sure which brewery makes the Black Beauty...  I didn't really care for the Shiner bock.  Black Beauty was pretty good.  Maybe next time I'll get a chance to seek out all of your suggestions.  Thanks again!

I'll be traveling to Carrollton, TX and was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for local brews/breweries to try.  I'm from CT, so I'd be interested in anything unique to TX even.


General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brewing less than 5 gallon batches

Thanks for all of the responses.  The main reason I'd like to make smaller batches is to vary ingredients without taking as much time to consume the results between batches.

Has anyone ever brewed in quantities less than 5 gallons?  If so, any preferred equipment/methods?
