I'm going to Kentucky this week, for the sole purpose of drinking.  Where should I go?

This was a very exciting election and congrats to the winners. We had a record nmber of candidates this year with a wealth of talent, knowledge and experience from all across the country. Hoping to see those that weren't as fortunate back again next year for another round. Thanks to all the candidates!  :)

I will! only two spots available though. that's gonna be a fun one.

Yeah, but one of them is mine.  It's gonna take about 4 people to fill that void!  ;)
Their age doesn't need to match yours Denny!
Or volume! ;)

Haven't seen much food pron lately. Figured I've salt the mine.

Home made pasta with peanut sauce and baby broccoli. A little home grown basil and chives on top

Nice!  :)

Looks good, Jonathan.  Did you put a little heat in the peanut sauce?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Belle Saison Stats?

The yeast contribution from Belle Saison is not as complex as that from 565 and 566 in my opinion.

It's quite possible.  Would you be able to post a picture?

I use CTZ most of the time.  When I'm not using that, it's usually Chinook.

This was a most delicious bitter from around the new year. Not a recent brew, but post worthy, I think. I miss that beer...

Hey Denny,  How do the shrooms hold up after the dry shrooming?  Are they useful as food afterward?  Just curious.

I should add, 99% of the homebrewers I meet are super cool and very appreciative of my beer. I get homebrewers coming in to bring me a new homebrew to try about once a week. Some of my best friends are homebrewers. But every now and then there's one guy who is going to criticize everything because "he could do it better" or "this isn't to style" or whatever. come on - you guys all have that guy in your homebrew club, right?

 They're trying to make delicious beer that people want to buy at a price that lets them make a living, and have succeeded.  Arguing about whether or not it hits the robust porter guidelines as a measure of the quality of the brewery is pointless.

+1.  Brewing for comps (and to style) is one thing - the expectation to hit styles is obviously the criteria.  But in a brewpub I could care less if the beer hits the guidelines to the letter. It should be recognizeable as what it's called on the menu, but I like to see a brewer's take on a given beer style more than crunching numbers for style.

I agree.  I don't give a crap about style unless it is for competition.  I like tasty beer, regardless of style or whatever. :)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Wit yeast recommendations

I prefer the flavors that WLP400 gives.  Nice and spicy, a little tart, not over attenuated.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Kolsch: Lager on or off yeast?
« on: April 02, 2014, 05:00:35 AM »
I usually cold crash on the yeast for a week or so then rack to corny with finings aand lager a another week or till it is clear. No need lagering this beer for more than a couple weeks.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lambic Primary Fermentation
« on: March 31, 2014, 12:27:08 PM »
I started them in plastic buckets.  I'm thinking it would be best to put them in glass at some point.  They've been in primary for a little over three weeks at this point. 

Yeast and Fermentation / Lambic Primary Fermentation
« on: March 31, 2014, 09:40:16 AM »
I made ten gallons of Lambic wort and pitched WLP655 in half and Wyeast Lambic blend in the other half.  My question is, how long should I leave them on the primary yeast before I transfer them to the secondary?
