Zymurgy / Zymurgy Best Beers Survey (and free swag)
« on: February 17, 2018, 01:28:48 PM »
Zymurgy's 16th annual Best Beers in America survey is now live. AHA members can log in and vote here:

http://HomebrewersAssociation.org/zym-best-beers

You can name—in no particular order—as few as 1 or as many as 5 commercially brewed beers that you think deserve recognition. We'll obtain or develop clone recipes for those that readers particularly enjoy. Voting ends March 20, and all who cast votes are entered to win free AHA merch!

Thanks for all you do to make Zymurgy a valuable resource for homebrewers!

Pimp My System / Re: Gadgets - Custom Blowoff and Sparge

Read with interest the gadgets article in the January /February Zymurgy magazine.
I was wondering if there was a parts list for item 10 in the article - Custom Blowoff and Sparge?

The author of the article is responding to inquiries in a separate thread:

I don't have a parts list, but I'll alert the submitter to this thread. Hopefully he can chime in with some info!

Zymurgy / Re: Harvesting Hops in Bavaria's Hallertau?
« on: October 13, 2017, 01:22:36 PM »
I'm finally reading my September/October 2017 print issue of Zymurgy and was excited to read the story on the cover called "Harvesting Hops in Bavaria's Hallertau."  I looked all through the issue and couldn't find the article.  So I decided to look at the online version and the cover online has replaced it with "Homebrewing in Hawaii." Just checking to see if or when that article on Hallertau is coming out. I always love to read about German beers and brewing.

Hi Brian, thanks for pointing this out. Zymurgy actually has two covers: one for issues that mail directly to readers and another for newsstands, homebrew shops, etc. There's space on the former for the mailing label, while the latter has a bar code.

I had originally slated the Hallertau piece for Sept/Oct, but I had to push it to Nov/Dec due to space constraints (Sept/Oct is the biggest issue of the year with the NHC recipes and the AHA member shops listing). Unfortunately, it looks like only one of the covers got updated with that change. My apologies for the error.

You will find the Hallertau article in the Nov/Dec issue, which will mail near the end of October.

Thanks for reading Zymurgy and supporting the AHA!
Cheers,
Dave

Zymurgy / Re: NHC Gold Medal Recipes

Hey, Steve, thanks for the great suggestion! I will keep that in mind. Logistically, it might be challenging to obtain and print all the scoresheets (probably online), and we would probably need to obtain permission from the winners to do so (that's not my area of expertise).

I'll mention it in our next AHA staff meeting and see what those more knowledgeable than I have to say. :)



I've just been looking at the winners' recipes,in the latest edition of Zymurgy.  I found myself wishing I could see a judges scoresheet to get a better idea of what made the beer great, and what specific flavors they found.  I don't know if that is worth the effort it would take, but FWIW I think it would be helpful.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Dealing with Protein/Chill Haze

OP, are you hitting your OG and FG numbers as expected? I had an issue with haze several years ago that turned out to be a thermometer that was out of calibration. Gave me low numbers and a good deal of haze.

Hey Phil, thanks for your comments. Just to add to what has already been said, I'll emphasize that I'm always open to pitches for Zymurgy. If you or someone you know has an idea for an article, send it my way (zymurgy@brewersassociation.org)! All levels of technical detail are welcome.

Dave, is the glass bowl on the cover filled with liquid malt extract?

Yep, it's good ol' pale LME.

What kind of glass is that on the cover?
(can't do a screen capture, sorry)

I'll double check with our art director, but I believe it's this one from Crate & Barrel:
