Beer Recipes / Re: "Realfort" 6, 8, and 10 (Rochefort Recipe Discussion)

Have you brewed any of these yourself yet?  I could try the 6 or the 8 soon (maybe next month).

It's been years since I read BLAM, do we have any info regarding their mash process?  I'd probably start with my typical hochkurz.

Cool post, thanks for organizing all that information.

Cool; I'll look forward to hearing how the next batch goes.

I haven't used S-04 for a while, but 64% AA seems pretty low, right?

I've got a Tripel finishing up fermentation now in a 10 gallon corny keg with spunding valve attached. It seems to be generating about 4 psi every 12 hours (when it gets to 5, I manually bleed it back to 1).

Which comp are you entering?

The benefit of fermenting under pressure that I always hear about (and maybe read about in Yeast?) is that it suppresses esters, allowing you to ferment at a warmer temperature and finish more quickly than you would otherwise. 

Is that what you're after or are there other benefits?

Belgian Blond

It might have a bit more clearing up to do, but I think it looks pretty good for being fermented with WY 3864.

Have you considered entering it in multiple categories: 26D (Belgian Dark Strong Ale) and also 30A (spice, herb or vegetable beer) and/or 34C (experimental beer)?

Might be fun to see how/if the scores differ among them

Commercial Beer Reviews / Sierra Nevada Brut IPA

I didn't know this existed, but I saw it at Trader Joe's yesterday and had to pick some up.  I've only ever tried one other example of the style before so I don't have much to compare it to, but I really like it.

According to the website, the specs are:

OG: 12.5° P
FG: 0.5° P
ABV: 6.2%
IBU: 25

It's just Pils malt with an experimental bittering hop and Comet and Crystal for finishing hops.  Now I kind of want to try brewing one myself.

This was more of an opportunity....Drew and I were asked to beta test.  What could I say?

That's awesome, and I look forward to hearing your impressions.

Brut Bitter - 50/50 Maris Otter/Golden Promise, 1.032ish, maybe 15 IBUs from EKG, dry hopped with EKG, English yeast, enzymes added to fermenter. End up with a more flavorful "light beer."

I think that would be really interesting and worth trying.

Classifieds / Intertap Stainless Flow Control Faucet
« on: January 12, 2019, 07:57:55 PM »
I have an Intertap stainless, flow control faucet that I would like to sell.  It's been used exactly twice and is basically in new condition.

New on Amazon, they go for $58.99.

I'd like to get $40 for it, which includes shipping.

Classifieds / Milwaukee MW 101 pH Meter

I have a Milwaukee MW 101 pH meter I am looking to sell.  New on Amazon, they are $90.83 and come with a probe.  Mine does not have a probe; I believe they run around $35.

I'd like $30 for it, which includes shipping.

It varies, but from what I can tell from the pictures you posted, you shouldn't need a second o-ring or washer (my new regulator is the same configuration as yours).
