General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Worst oversight you've ever done!

I opened a keg of carbonated beer to add dry hops without bleeding off the pressure.  Beer volcano ensued.

Back to the original topic, one of the other homebrew clubs at a festival had a ginger wheat, that was definitely one of my favorites there.  So semantics aside, it sounds like it could be a tasty brew.

Besides, I think the Koelsch convention only applies if you use umlauts. :D

There was a fascinating Science Friday discussion w/ Pollan on food sustainability.  Podcast linky:

best show on radio, IMO

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Why the preference for Ball Lock?

I had a couple balls, but took them back to the LHBS, and swapped them for pins.

Not sure where to go w/ that.   ;D

If I were trying to up production, I'd go with a bigger wort-production system, but then split up the ferment.  Different yeast, ferm. temps, dry hopppng, dry herbing, oaking, etc.  You'll get different beers (and probably some fascinating comparisons), without stressing on brew day.

My (admittedly one) experience w/ FWHing, tasted yummy, but the boil seemed like it really wanted to boil over, much more than when I just add bittering hops.  Anyone else notice this, or am I all wet?
