Got it, thanks.

I can listen but not download it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: 1970's Homebrew Shops
« on: June 28, 2019, 06:38:49 PM »
Being from Canada, the wine shops in the early 70's sold dusty old extract kits. I remember seeing a baggie of Cascade whole hops in one of the bins for sale. Who knows how long they were there. I bought the John Bull kits and thought they were pretty good.

I recycled all my glass carboys and went to plastic.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: what lagering does
« on: March 13, 2019, 11:49:46 AM »
3 weeks minimum for me. My latest amber lager seemed to be too malty. I had a bitter on tap, so I waited. Just at the 3 week mark, it all came together. It is almost like clockwork, 3 weeks and I am good to go. Lagered in my keezer at 2 C.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Ale yeast for a lager

There are a few of them. WLP029 is a Kolsch yeast. 2565 from Wyeast is another Kolsch yeast. Wyeast 2112 Cal lager is another one. WLP810 also.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Fast lager method question?
« on: November 07, 2018, 11:44:53 AM »
I brewed a few lagers and just left them until fermentation was done. I got sulphur in one and cooked corn in the other. I quit for about 2 years until I tried the fast lager method. I haven't had sulphur or cooked corn since then. I am currently fermenting a lager and now in the ramp up stage - 66 F. The sulphur smell is strong in my fermentation fridge and I am confident it will all be gone when fermentation is done.

All Grain Brewing / Cologne Water Profile in Bru'n Water
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:11:11 PM »
I ran the latest Bru'n Water update and noticed Cologne in the water profiles section. Is this good for brewing a Kolsch or similar light ales?

Listened to this show while cooking supper. Excellent show guys.



General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How's your LHBS doing?
« on: April 23, 2018, 11:40:51 AM »
Our town has a population of 80,000 here in Ontario with no lhbs. I live 1 1/2 hrs from Toronto and their hb stores seem to be doing quite well. In the mid 90's you couldn't find any hb stores. They have quite a few now, finally. The biggest store where I order from is online only. No store front. They have absolutely everything to make beer.

Ingredients / Re: Bought 2-3 Year Old Hops

Maybe Spalt and NB hops just aren't that popular where I live. Maybe I will just stick to US " C " hops and Hallertauer, Saaz etc.

Ingredients / Bought 2-3 Year Old Hops
« on: March 20, 2018, 11:45:20 AM »
I ordered some Spalt and GR Northern Brewer hops and the lot no. said 2015 and 2016. What gives? Do homebrewers not rate newer hops or is it simply " first in and first out " LHBS practice. I would like 2017 hops please.

General Homebrew Discussion / German Perle Hops Review
« on: March 07, 2018, 02:51:47 PM »
I am thinking on buying some Perle hops in bulk. I will be brewing Pilsners only with them. How do they compare to other German hops? I can't find a lot of reviews on these hops. They certainly have been around for a long time.

My Helles tastes way better with Weyermann Pils malt than 2 row. I just found the taste had a more of a Pilsner taste than when I used 2 row. However, it is still good when I zip it up a bit with specialty malts.
