General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Got a brewday disaster story?
« on: February 23, 2017, 05:52:58 PM »
A few summers ago, I was brewing an all-grain Summer Ale. My system is all gravity. My sparge water is in a cooler on a tall ladder. My mash tun is on another ladder and my collection bucket is on the ground. My boil kettle is on the burner near by. So, I was done running my sparge water. At this time, I collected about 3 gallons and I needed about 3 more gallons of wort. I asked my self why I wasn't collecting my runnings directly into the kettle. I decided to move my mash tun in order to do that. I picked up my mash tun and then dropped it. (When it fell, time slowed down). I had grain and wort all over my garage floor. I decided to head to my LHBS and pick up some DME to make up the difference. When I got there, he was closed, so I left. Fortunately, the owner saw me and texted me. So he did sell me some DME and I finished with a descent beer.

Hi Kyle,
I would recommend that you figure out who your regulars will be and what their brewing level is. Are they beginners who have done a few kits? If so, focus on the basics. Are they advanced? If so, maybe talk about water chemistry. Then go from there.
Or, found out from people attending what they want to learn more about.
Hope this helps and welcome!

All Grain Brewing / Re: How long does it take you to brew a beer?
« on: February 10, 2017, 06:23:22 PM »
5 gallons, all-grain, fly sparge about 5 hours from start to done cleaning. When I do lagers, with 75' mash and 75'-90' boil, it extends to 5.5-6 hours .

I have 5 entries. Last year, my saison made it to the Finals. It's funny, I had couple of other beers score higher but did not advance. Good luck to all!!!!

IPAs are incredibly overrated.

Amen.

I don't know if mine is unpopular or not. But, I don't like to drink while I'm brewing. It's a matter of safety and paying attention to detail.

Yeast and Fermentation / Expiration Date Dry Yeast
« on: December 17, 2016, 09:43:48 AM »
I have about a dozen Lallemand Windsor and Munich dry yeast. The expiration date on the packages are either 12/2013 (3 years past) or 01/2015 (about 2 years past). Are these yeast still usable? For your information, I did not plan to use them in the near future. Thank you in advance for your input.
