General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Why no home brew TV shows?
« on: August 23, 2016, 04:55:14 AM »
The Brewing Network did a "Season" of a homebrew type show on some internet-only TV station out in California.  It was interesting to watch, but mostly because it had a bunch of people I've met personally.

They had sponsors and everything..."you just wrote your own deal Bro" :)

Dry hop at fermentation temp, so for ales around 67F.  I will do keg hopping as well when I feel the dry hop wasn't enough.

Most of the shops in NH and Maine that I've been too are dedicated homebrew shops.  But some also have wine and cheese making supplies as well.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Location of Grain Storage
« on: August 04, 2016, 07:11:15 AM »
I've never heard of storing the grain or even milling in a different location before.  I store mine in vittle vaults that fit under my brewing table (the big ones) and on a shelf (smaller tupperware cereal containers) in my basement...um...I mean brewhouse.

damn now what am I going to call my Citranox IIPA?  Citra366?

I'm thinking so.  :)   Maybe 'The Beer Formerly Known As Citranox' ?



Just called it "366 - The Sign of a Devil in Training"

Thanks all. Sounds like the wonder hop.

You just found it's new name :)

Good luck in the competition.  You may be surprised with your results.  We all tend to be our most critical judge.

Depending on the judges experience, you could get some great feedback and use that info to rebrew.

Anyone ever brew with just Equinox?  I just did one on Friday which is fermenting right now.  I was going to just dry hop it with more 366, but maybe I should add something else.

I guess I could always do a 2nd dry hop if it doesn't taste right after the first.

I considered doing a SMASH with it. Did you brew an IPA?

I did an IPA.  Warrior for bittering, 10 min - 1 oz. 366 addition and a 30 minute whirlpool with another 2 oz.  I'm planning to dry hop with another 2 oz.

Events / Re: Great American Beer Festival Denver---Presale Tickets

Of course you could always pay $300 plus for tickets already listed on Ebay.  I wish there was a way the AHA could find these people and revoke their membership.

This is on the FAQ page:

Do you sell a Designated Driver ticket?
Yes, Designated Driver tickets are available for all sessions for $25 each. Free, non-alcoholic sodas will be available and each Designated Driver receives a complimentary gift, available in the Designated Driver Lounge. Designated Drivers are welcome to attend the beer and food seminars, walk around the festival floor, or relax in the Designated Driver Lounge.

I'm glad they still do the DD ticket.  One of the things that bugs me about the VT Brewer's Festival is taking away the DD option.  They even used to allow kids on the Saturday day session, with games, soft drinks, face painting, etc.  Not any more though.

Beer Recipes / Re: marzen
« on: July 22, 2016, 05:09:37 AM »
FWIW, I just did one with 65% Vienna, 21% Munich 9L, 10% Pils, and 4% melanoidan IIRC.


Edit -  Also, this one's on the light end of the color range. I believe it's 7.7 SRM.

The one I just won a silver with was:

  Munich 10L       37.7%
  Pilsner             30.2%
  Vienna             22.6%
  Caramunich III    7.5%
  Melanoidan         1.9%

I think this year I'm lowering the Pils percentage and raising the Vienna and possibly the Munich.

A call back would have been nice, even just to say it would be a week before they could get there. 

Funny how these things always break at the worse times, huh?  All this stuff usually happens to me on a Sunday when nothing is open.  Like running out of CO2 in the kegerator...now I always have the spare on hand.
