General Homebrew Discussion / Re: I always liked Tallgrass Beer

I toured thier brewery. I recommend a designated driver if you ever do. They pass around pitcher after pitcher throughout the entire tour. And it is a free tour.

 The owner was a member of the Topeka home brew club before he decides to go into business.

But I like them even better now. They obviously support home brewers.

General Homebrew Discussion / Small Batch Question
« on: May 17, 2012, 09:41:13 AM »
Would a food grade 5 gallon bucket be too big to use for a 2 gallon batch? Or would the CO2 just take longer to fill the head space?

Now if they will just legalize home brewing.

I don't know how old they are. I don't know how I got them. Probably in a recipe kit I modified. I just found them in the freezer when I was getting my cascades and wondered about using them.

Thankyou for your responses. I went with the Cascades as originally intended. I don't know how I got these goldings. I am guessing from a recipe kit I modified some time ago. Any suggestions on what to do with them?

Beer Recipes / Aroma hop question

I have a Citra hopped IPA one week into fermentation. I am planning on dry hopping it. I was going to use Cascades for the dry hop but noticed I have 2 oz of Kent Goldings on hand. Any opinions on which of these would be better?

Get your black bottle caps here

I buy these in the American Flag design. I must say they are good sturdy caps made of thicker metal than most the caps I have had in the past. As a result my capper really puts a good tight seal on them.

I have always thought the regular Red Ale at 23rd St Brewery was the best I ever tasted.

Blind Tiger Happenings!

Collaboration Ale On Tap Now!

Full Kimono Imperial Red Ale

American Craft Beer Week celebrates the independent spirit, craftsmanship, and community fostered by the American craft brewer. In that spirit the brewers of Free State beer, Blind Tiger, and 23rd street offer up the Full Kimono, an Imperial Red Ale. Brewers Geoff Deman (Free State), John Dean (Blind Tiger), and Bryan "Bucky" Buckingham (23rd Street), designed the recipe together and collaboratively brewed the three batches of Full Kimono at each other's breweries on three successive days. At over 10% ABV and hopped to the hilt with more hops than any of the three breweries have previously employed in a single batch, the Full Kimono is something special indeed. Full of hop flavor but balanced by a full malt backbone, the Full Kimono lays bare the "magic" of the brewer's art for all to enjoy. Be sure to travel to each brewery and enjoy the subtle differences between each stellar brew.

* Come in Today and Enjoy one of our Award Winning Beers!

See you at The Blind Tiger Brewery & Restaurant

I actually like 23rd St Brewery better than Free State in Lawrence. They have the best Red Ale I have ever tried. it is called Crimson Fog.

I have some equipment on order that will adapt my camera to my telescope. Maybe I will have some pictures to post soon.
