Don't they have some kind of package deal for buying tickets to all of the sessions at once this year?

Given there is no sense of taste without the sense of smell, is it even possible to add aroma without adding flavor?

I thought ESB stands for English Session Bitter. I thought those are always low gravity which is what makes them "session" beers. Am I wrong about that?

I get mine just before the boil. At around 208F or so.

That is called hot break. I control mine with a spray bottle of water.

Thanks to the advice earlier in this thread I bought a food grade RV hose. Before using it in my beer I let it run 5 minutes, drew a glass from it and another identicle glass from my tap. Tasted them side by side and detected absolutely no difference between the 2.

I tasted my first beer made with all water from my RV hose. I didn't pick up any garden hose taste whatsoever. And it sure did save me some time on brew day. Thankyou for all your input.

IBU/GU ratio is 0.53 I still don't understand this ratio yet. I would love to know where cloying ends, balanced begins, balanced ends, slightly hoppy begins etc. For now I just take Brewtarget's word for it. IBUs are 27.1

I don't have any pilsner malt. And brew target says it will be balanced with this amount.

Beer Recipes / Rough draft of a recipe
« on: July 06, 2012, 09:50:10 PM »
I am formulating a recipe for an altbier. How does this look so far?

5lbs Munich 10L
3 lbs 2 row
.5 lb Caramunich II
.5 lb aromatic malt
2 oz black patent
1 oz of hops around 7.5 percent for bittering

I am thinking about eliminating a half a pound of 2 row and replacing it with half a pound of white wheat.

Thankyou. I absolutely love altbiers but have never brewed one. This is the first time I have found a recipe for one.

Is there any way to access the recipe of last week? I thought I saved it but didn't. It was an altbier.

I was just wanting to know if I was buying a good brand. As it turns out the one I bought is quite upgradable which is nice. It has RCA jacks so I can add an amplifier. So if I ever did want to turn it into a nice sound system the potential is there. Now that I have been using it for a while I am considering upgrading the speakers. I love the endless variety of music I have now.

My other car, an 02 Firebird has the 500 watt Monsoon sound system with 10 speakers. All factory. It sounds incredible. After driving that car I get back in my Buick and feel like my ears are plugged from swimming or something.

I was never looking for good audio. Just more choice than a radio alone affords.
