Mark, I heard you are the keynote speaker and your topic is You Can't Make Beer Without a Stir Plate.

Shame it doesn't allow you to check both Steward and Judge. I am Provisional looking out to September for the Tasting exam.

Does checking judge also qualify you for steward? Hate to show and be turned away.
Im hoping to go next year and plan to volunteer to steward with hopes of being on the American Wild table.

Anyway, Matt I've not been to finals but have been to round one. I think you'll stand to learn just as much either way.

I'll give my next batch a higher mash temp. I guess I really don't know if a pale ale should be dry or not, and if it's really an issue either way with the low FG.

Go get a Sierra Nevada pale ale.  Use that as your guide.
Not Oakshire?

The high pressure gage will drop a bit when the tank is cold.

Your post is sending a mixed message.  Why don't you just come out say that you need more
National and above judges to sign up?  Anyone who is detail oriented can steward a contest.  One does not need to be a ranked judge to fill that role.
The takeaway I got was that they need certified and up, but then kind of a polite heads up that it will probably only be national and up sitting at BOS.

Its just the combo of the advertising. Yellow sky, the word signature... this add is saying that this is the go to beer for writing your name in the snow

America's newest craft brewer is....BUSCH!!!



I bought a sixer of it for $4.50 at the gas station yesterday.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Nice light malty flavor with smooth graininess, none of that awful lemony taste of regular Busch/Busch Light.  Reminded me of Leinenkugel Oktoberfest.
How long till Coors sues them for using mountains. And just out of curiosity, does the snow turn yellow when its the right temperature?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How much is too much yeast?
« on: May 21, 2015, 02:39:58 PM »
How much yeast is one of those questions in brewing that has a wide variety of possible answers. It depends on what results you desire. How much is needed to make alcohol and CO2? One healthy cell. Can you pitch so much that it won't make alcohol? Probably not, unless it's like two pounds of dry yeast into a pint of wort. It would just make a mess.

In reality, I pitch a little less than normal if it's a small beer or if I want more flavor expression. A little more than normal if it's a bigger beer or I want a cleaner lower level of flavor expression. Warmer gets less, colder gets more.

Personally I'd wait till you have reached final gravity then dry hop for about 7 days. That could be five days in... or 25 days in. Go by gravity rather that calendar. If you dry hop during active fermentation you are blowing off a lot of aroma with the escaping CO2.

Cold crash to me means getting the beer down to 30° and holding it there for a few days to a week.
