Hey guys,

If a beer advanced to a mini Best Of Show round, WTF does that mean and when do you find out the results?!

Yeah I'm ok guys... Just super sad about my lost wort, cash, and time. (In that order)  Both of the ones that exploded were brand new.  This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me during the three years I've been homebrewing.  This incident has made me want to switch to stainless steel for sure!

General Homebrew Discussion / Carboy Disaster

I had a really sweet double batch brew day lined up yesterday; a coffee stout and IPA.  It was my first double batch on my Brew Magic so I was pretty pumped.  The morning was enjoyable after I resolved a stuck mash.  After hitting all my numbers and successfully finishing out the coffee stout I began the IPA.  I love IPAs and I love coffee so I was particularly excited about this batch.  It was one of the smoothest brews I've ever done.  What a great day!  I had just cooled and transferred over 12 gallons of a gigantic beer into two 6.5 gal. carboys.  I moved one carboy into my fermentation cellar (my closet)  ;) and picked up the other one to put it in its home as well.  I walked closer to my closet ready to pitch the yeast and clean up.  As I bent over to set the carboy down, I clipped the side of the one already on the ground.  This shattered the bottom of the one I was holding, spilling 6.5 precious gallons all over my carpet.  The one I grazed shattered too.  Blood and wort EVERYWHERE.  Have you ever seen 13 gallons of wort on carpet?!  I wish I could un-see it!!!  I just finished shampooing the carpet for the 5th time and I think I have another couple times on the horizon tomorrow...  Don't worry... the coffee stout survived and is happily fermenting  8) 

What's your worst brewing mishap?

I just made a pumpkin spice beer and had great success by adding spices at flame out and a smaller amount again at kegging.  Great aroma and mild flavor was the result of that.  Your recipe looks good.

The iO Saison from the Jolly Pumpkin DESTROYS.  I'll do unforgivable things to get my hands on that beer.

If you still want to use the grains, I'd mash in at a very low temp to get as many fermentable sugars in the wort as possible.

Nestle Pure life is very good commercial water if you want to use RO.

I am planning on doing my first all grain batch in the next week or so and wanted to do something that would be good for tailgating. The people I tailgate with range from beer lovers to Natty Light drinkers and I wanted to try to get something that would be good for as many as possible, and was thinking a lighlty hopped golden would be the ticket. Any body have any recipe's I could work from, or ideas of what is needed?

Hey man,

Here's a recipe I made.  It's pretty simple and it tastes great.  The weight in parentheses is for a 5.50 gal batch.

Mash temp: 150 degrees
90% Pilsnen Malt (8lbs 8.4 oz)
5% White Wheat Malt (8 oz)
5% Aromatic Malt (8 oz)

75 min boil
@ 65 1.00 oz Saaz
@ 20 .5 oz Saaz
@ 10 irish moss

OG: 1.048
Pitch WLP 029 (Kolsch Yeast) or a similar strain
FG: 1.010

Hey guys!

I recently had a logo designed by Jared Jacob of Sunday Lounge.  He was mentioned in Tom Hennessy's book, "Brewery Operations Manual" and came highly recommended.  Attached is the work he did for my brewery in planning.  He is very easy to work with and is an amazing designer.  After working with him, I would also highly recommend him for a professional logo.  Let me know what you guys think!
