Wow. Those are very cool! Is plating expensive?

Wow. I'm at 30 gallons so far. I need to drink more.

I have used a food dehydrator. It works great and is fast. Last year I made a large screen, put the hops on and left it in the van for a week. A hot car is bad of dogs and kids, but works great for hops. Smelled real good in there for a few days.

I have tried them all and I keep going back to 1028 for my British style beers.

Also, sometimes the best way to rescue a batch is dump it and start over.

I've only had to dump two batches in 7 yrs. Last one was a lager. I pulled it out of the fridge for a diacetyl  rest. Let it sit on the counter for a week while I forgot about it and then we had a 3 day heat wave at the end of may. By the time I got to it, it tasted pretty bad.

This thread has made me realize that I'm far too old, weak, and lazy to be a pro brewer.

People always say,"good beer! You should open a brewery!"

Yeah, I've gotten that a few times. My response is something like "thanks, but I don't want to borrow 50-100k from anyone to open a brewery."

I have a 5 gal batch in the fridge fermenting. I also have a bunch of commercial beer bottles in there. If I turn the temp down to 38, why did I find a chunk of ice floating in my 5 gal batch, but the bottles in there did not freeze first. I am confused.

Similar thing happened to me once. Brewed an ale in July. Put it in the fridge I use to ferment. It was at about 65 or so. Went on vacation for a week. While I was gone a storm hit, knocked the power out for a day or so. The beer sat at probably 80-85 for that time. There was beer all over the fridge, I guess the yeast went nuts the first few hours as it got warmer and warmer. I bottled what was left. Far from perfect, but still drinkable.

A little extra time may help get it back to tasting semi-normal

Plenty more breweries would remain to take it's place  ;D
