General Homebrew Discussion / My latest disaster
« on: February 02, 2014, 09:58:10 AM »
I did a decoction for one of my lagers a while back. While I was heating it, I got distracted and scorched some of the grain on the bottom of the pot. There was a pretty good layer of burnt grain on there. Anyway, I figured what the heck, and dumped the unburned grain back into the mash. I tried some last night and it's got a distinct bitter, burned flavor to it.

This happen to anyone else? Will it fade over time or should I just ditch this batch? It's been about six weeks since I brewed this.

100-150 bucks doesn't seem too crazy for something like that if it's made by hand. I sure as heck wouldn't know how to make my own barrel.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Stoopid Polar Vortex!

When I read that we're in for potentially weeks of bitter cold weather in NY all I could think was..."man I can brew a lot of lagers now."

+10 I live in NE Wisconsin; polar vortex bring it on! I have 5 years of firewood and 2 years of propane. The
vortex is saving me money on heating fuel and homebrewing. I'm currently on my second pint and saving money
as I rattle the keyboard. On a side note, the Mrs and I toast the house up on some Saturdays and walk around
in our underwear in the winter. It's just one reason we love living in the woods. Life is grand!

How much firewood and propane is that, exactly?

That looks like it was a lot of fun. Very cool!

As long as it tastes good, that's all that matters.

Nice article. If I had unlimited funds I would try that Zymatic thing.

If it were me I would have pitched it to a small starter just for the hell of it.

Here is a man who knows how to take lemons and make lemonade. Or, um, weird-ass beer

Well, maybe I will start to sanitize the caps then.

Yeah, it's only been a week. Give it some time... let it carb.. then try it. But I'm guessing it may still be a bit malty no matter how long it ages.

Do you sanitize the caps before you cap your bottles? I don't, but I'm wondering if I should. No problems so far but I'm curious what you other bottlers do.
