You sure are using a lot of American ingredients in your scotch ale.

The Pub / Something to keep in mind
« on: June 27, 2013, 07:39:40 AM »


A couple of weeks ago I was at Petsmart and saw a dog closed up in a truck. This was even more senseless and cruel because at Petsmart you can take your dogs in with you.

At an upscale restaurant that seems about right. Prices are what make the place upscale. That and food prepared by a true and talented chef.

Bicycling is a great alternative to running if you have knee problems.

That much cardio will also decrease your strength. But you are right, it is MUCH easier to maintain or gain strength when your heavier.

I used to cut weight while gaining strength for powerlifting competitions. I lifted in the 148# division. It was all about really understanding nutrition. Absolutely every calorie I ate was for the purpose of muscle building. I have no desire to exercise that much disipline ever again.

The Pub / Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa did another album
« on: June 17, 2013, 10:25:30 AM »
It is called See Saw. It was released a few weeks ago. It is really good. Some of the songs kind of remind me of 40s music. Is there no end to Bonamassa's versatility?

Mash Schedule: Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge
Total Grain Weight: 12 lbs

Yesterday I took the lid off to add the chips and bourbon (1 oz chips soaked in 8 oz bourbon for a week) While the lid was off I dropped the hydrometer in and got a 1.026 reading. Given I mashed at nearly 160F and used a low attenuating yeast I expect an FG of around 1.020 to 1.023. I took a taste while I had the lid off. This porter is spectacular. Adding the munich to bump the ABV was a good choice. After dumping the bourbon and chips in I took another taste. PERFECT! I am really looking forward to when this beer is ready.
