The Pub / Tribute Brewing, Eagle River WI
« on: July 22, 2016, 10:01:26 AM »
We started the day at the Fitz in Eagle River MI. The wake up call was a big thunderstorm, with a loss of power.

Drove to my sister's house, and after some coffee and lunch, we then went over to Eagle River WI and visited Boulderbrewer's Tribute brewing. Had a good visit and look around the brewery with Mark. The Dortmunder and IPA were tasty. The taproom was busy for just after opening on a Wednesday, but it is Wisconsin!

Now I owe a visit to Keith, Leos, Sean (when he is open), and anyone else from the forum that has or will open a brewery.

Does anyone have experience with these. Mrs. R grabbed some from YVH the last day, they were not shipping any home.

Never been to Baltimore. Those that have, please give some Food recommendations for Balmer, including breakfast. Beer, Max's and of Love and Regret are on the radar. Others? Mrs. R is asking, as she will have some free time in encumbered with me.  ;)

Hadn't seen this before. The translation is a little rough. Nice pictures. Horizontal tanks.

Ingredients / Brewing Water From Deep Wells in Munich?
« on: April 27, 2016, 06:43:45 AM »
In the past two days I have run across two referrences for Breweries in the Munich area using deep bored wells to source their water. The water is said to be soft, but no detailed information. Martin may have more information, or might have interest.

The first was on a site about the Ayinger tour (someday we will do that one). Scroll down a little, and there is a picture of a display depicting the geology, and a water fountain built out of a rock, and a little text.

The other was this one from Paulaner. It states that the deep water is similar to the water in Pilsen. It also points out that Germany has banned fracking - which made me smile, as Germany has essentially zero petroleum resources.

For my own brewing, I have been diluting 1 gallon of my water with 9 gallons of RO for Dunkels. I might as well just use RO and add some minerals.

At least it was not ABInbev.

Edit - does this come as a surprise to any Tampa Bay folks? Mr. Gladish?

Events / 2016 Keynote
« on: March 05, 2016, 10:18:38 AM »
Sam Calagione has been announced as this years keynote.

In 2009, Ken Grossman was the keynote. I was setting with Jeff Renner near the front. Saw 3 guys come in the row behind us and set down. They were fascinated throughout the presentation, saying wow, can you believe that, and so on. Their first names were Vinnie, Tomme, and Sam. The other have given keynotes, and it is Sam's turn now.

The Pub / How Many States Have You Been To? A Bucket List Thing.
« on: March 01, 2016, 11:08:17 AM »
This was an idea from another thread. How many of the 50 states have you visited? I have no real criteria for a visit, other than not an airport. I have at least had my feet on the ground or sat down for a cup of coffee.muse your own score card.

Some were for work. A couple were as a kid on family vacation. Some were for outdoor adventures. Many were for beer tourism.

48/50 for me. Missing Rhode Island (small target) and Hawaii. We have some reasons to visit both, so someday I can then say all 50.

The Pub / AHA Tuesday Trivia - Hops

Hop Tuesday Trivia quiz on the main page. Got all of those right. Owlsey acids? Oh that one made me laugh.

All Grain Brewing / Low pH with Best Pils Malt?
« on: January 06, 2016, 08:02:25 AM »
Has anyone found the mash pH being low when using Best Pils? I was 0.3 low yesterday. Right now I am at a brewery, and the brewer said he was 0.3 low also,  using Best. He said it had tasted a little tart when he chewed it.

I was going to do a mini mash the night before but got lazy. That needs to be part of my procedure with new malts (new to me malts, that is).

Ingredients / Malt Best By Date
« on: December 15, 2015, 06:15:48 AM »
We toured Weyermann Malting last month while in Bamberg. The tour was worth it, first Maltings I have been in.

The guide pointed out the best by date on the sacks. It is 18 months from when the malt is packaged. That is the best by date, the malt could still be used.

Hope this helps when one asks or wonders how long their malt is good for.

I had a beer made with the Eagle River Yeast, it had a very nice Belgiany flavor.

The Pub / A Water Solution for a Commercial Brewery.

The water in Michigan is plentiful. This brewery is in the town of Dexter, and the drinking water treatment plant and waste treatment plant have capacity limits. Here is what they will be doing.
