Beer Travel / Louisville, Kentucky
« on: October 11, 2011, 07:06:41 PM »
I'll be in Louisville Kentucky in three weeks and would appreciate some local knowledge.  Any thoughts on breweries/brewpubs/taprooms that would be worth visiting?  Also, any restaurant recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  I'll be in town for three days so I can visit multiple sites.


Ingredients / Blackberries
« on: September 09, 2011, 04:08:43 PM »
I picked 8 pounds of blackberries last weekend and plan on brewing with them this weekend.  I would appreciate any info/experiences that  y’all might have as it relates to styles that would marry well with blackberries.

 I was thinking of a Northern English Brown.  Also, I was intrigued by the Golden Strong with raspberries that was discussed on the last Sunday Session.

 I imagine big-ass hoppy beers are out of the question.  Also, it’s for the holidays, so beers that need to age over 2 months are out.

Thanks for your input!


All Grain Brewing / 10 Gallon All-Grain Batch on a 5 Gallon System
« on: February 09, 2011, 04:07:41 AM »
So my buddy and I had an idea (keep in mind, we had been drinking); we want to do a 10 gallon batch of a low gravity beer on our 5 gallon system.

We figured that we could double the grain bill for a low gravity beer and it will fit in our mash tun, but we only have the capacity to boil 7 gallons.

So if we simply double a low-gravity recipe, process it like a high-gravity 5 gallon batch, then add water prior to fermentation to equal 10 gallons would we end up with two five gallon batches of a low-gravity beer that would taste similar to the original 5 gallon recipe?

Is our logic flawed?  If not, are there any pitfalls to be aware of?

Thanks in advance and good health,

Curt and Ken
