Other Fermentables / Re: Preparing to bottle my wine
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:11:35 PM »
I would just drop it in the current fermenter and gently stir. Wait at least 24 hours before bottling. I usually wait longer than that for things to settle out a bit.

I have a question. I got my score sheets back from Indy and it states that my American Barleywine got second place, but on the winner's online page it has me down as third place. So, which one is it or do I have to wait for the ribbon

I would trust the winners page since the results get verified by the AHA. Error are more frequent in the cover sheet. But, I'd recommend emailing John Moorhead and asking about the discrepancy. Either way, congrats on advancing!
Thanks for directing me to email John. As it turns out, the winner's page was wrong (now corrected) and I actually got a 2nd place. I guess I'm not the only one who likes my HiDO Barleywine.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: First IPA Fermentation Question

The only way to really know if it's done is to check a gravity reading for a couple of consecutive days to see if it changes. I would just let it ride for another 4-5 days, cold crash for a few days, then keg. No need to secondary. Are you going to dry hop?

I haven't seen those around, but the German IPA sounds interesting and tasty.

Scores from Seattle not bad, but nothing going thru.  :(

American Porter 30/29
English Barleywine 34/35
Barrel Aged Barleywine 40/42
Wheatwine 36/36
Bière de Garde 43/44

The Porter was brewed big to go into a whiskey barrel (still in the barrel). This was bottled from what wouldn't fit. I'm still optimistic about barrel version. Maybe next year.  ;)
Those scores are great. I'm sure you were very close.

Yay, I made it with a 3rd place for my American Barleywine.

Congrats...and with 31 entries in the category.  Impressive!  Good luck in the finals.
Thanks, just happy to make it. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten my score sheets back with the mini-BOS marked and no place awarded.

I'm going in a few weeks to visit my brother. I want to check out Wicked Weed and Sierra Nevada for sure.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: First Infection in 5 Years
« on: March 19, 2017, 02:41:28 PM »
I had two batches go bad this last fall. They were from the same yeast cake from an earlier batch. They had a bad, phenolic taste and they must have gotten contaminated. This was the first time I had this happen in 10 years. So, I broke down and cleaned my equipment really good.  Hopefully, you find the culprit.

The Pub / Re: Songs you never want to hear again.

If you want good long-haired country music from that era, a far better choice is "The Gilded Palace of Sin" by the Flying Burrito Brothers. Heck, "Workingman's Dead" or "American Beauty" are better country than the Eagles.

Yeah, Gram Parsons was pretty cool, and I love the Dead. 

There's a pretty good live album of the Flying Burrito Brothers at the Avalon Ballroom in 1969 when they opened for the Dead.
Oh yes, I love me some Flying Burrito Brothers.

I played in a band called "Surrounded by Jeds" in the early nineties. People shortened it to "The Jeds" and the three of us went by the names of Danny Jed, Tommy Jed, and Johnny Jed.
