General Homebrew Discussion / Wisconsin State Fair Competition
« on: June 06, 2010, 05:33:17 AM »
I was wondering if anyone else entered this competition and have received their score sheets.  I have yet to receive mine and in the rules it stated the score sheets would be mailed out shortly after the competition, which was 15 may.

Instead of washing the yeast I just make more in the starter and save the extra in the mason jar.  Works a lot better and less work involved for me.

+2 to the sanitized mason jar.  Just put the lid on very loose.

Ingredients / Carafa needed in an alt?
« on: December 28, 2009, 01:10:57 PM »
I have an alt recipe that calls for carafa.  I was planning on leaving it out of the recipe since it is unavailable at my lhbs.  It would put it out of the range of color for an alt (which I am not real concerned with) but I was wondering if there would be any other tastes it would also leave out.  The recipe is below and it is based on Denny's zoom alt recipe. 

5lbs Rahr Premium Pilsner
4lbs Durst Munich 10L
3lbs Vienna Malt
12 oz Caramunich I malt
Irish Moss

1 oz Northern Brewer at 60 min
.75 oz Tettnang 15 min
.75 oz Tettnang at 5 min

Wyeast German Ale 1007

Also, any thoughts on the Northern Brewer for Bittering or should I just use Tettnang?

You are going to need a big starter. One vial of White Labs won't cut it. See for more info.   ;)


General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Boiling Wort outdoors in winter

I would also recommend still using the wort chiller.  The snow bank method does not work too well.  I had to resort to it last year for a lager I was making as the garden hose froze up because I forgot to bring it in.  It took too long to chill and left me with a bad taste of dms....but my dad loved that brew.

Sorry, I should have checked out my referral to make sure they sold the Belgian style glasses before I added it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Where to get custom glassware?

My wife surprised me with some personalized glasses with a custom logo on it a few years ago.  You can try or  The nice thing is that once your custom logo is on file they can make more as they save the logo.  There is also a phone number if you want to talk to them directly (1-800-779-3344).

I am brewing Jamils Evil Twin.  I thought I would try this once and hopefully it is as good as I have heard.

Equipment and Software / Re: RO system Qs
« on: November 21, 2009, 09:30:21 PM »
We put one of these in at work (with a flush tank) and it's been working fine...

I saw that this system treats 700 gallons a day and is a tankless system.. I am assuming it is an on demand system but only treats a half gallon per minute according to the link.  Seems like a decent system.  How often do you use it at work?

I have yet to FWH and would think it would work fine in an ESB if you don't use it in place of your aroma hops.

I run star san through it every keg.  I have never taken the faucets apart and have kegged with these faucets 2+ years.
