Probably won't have a chance to brew til next week, but it'll be a comparison....10 lb. Loughran Family ale malt + 1 lb. of Sacchra 50 vs. 10 lb. of Rahr pale malt + 1 lb. Sacchra 50.

Have you tried the Sacchra 50 yet?  I have a few ounces from HBC I am interested in using at some point. 

I'm planning on an APA Sunday night.

Something like:

11 lbs. 2-row
6 oz Carahell
4 oz English medium crystal

Bitter with Columbus and Centennial; finish with Vic Secret; dry hop with Vic Secret and Eureka

Wyeast 1318

Tonight I hope to tap a keg of Belgian Pale, install new rollers on my mill, and test my new pump (if all goes well this APA will be my first brew with it).

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lager Yeast Starter Failure
« on: June 29, 2016, 07:44:07 PM »
After waiting a few days for the yeast to settle at the bottom of the flask, on brewing day I would then siphon off the spent wort, add a pint or so of boiled and cooled to 48° water and pitch the slurry into the roughly 5 gallons of boiled and cooled (to the 48° pitching temperature) wort.

If your plan is to ferment the starter to completion, chill, decant, and pitch the slurry, there isn't any need to add boiled and cooled water.  When you decant, just leave enough liquid behind to suspend the yeast and make it easy to pour out.

We got one recently, and I haven't really been thrilled with it.  Everything I have tried to make has a certain "crock pot" flavor to it.

Any advice or recipes to share?  I'd like to use it more often if possible.

I made a cider late last year with 3522.  When the gravity was around 1.020, I racked it into a keg with some oak cubes and pitched a WL vial of brett.  That was in January; I haven't checked on it since.

Maybe I'll have a chance to sample it this weekend.

Wow! Do others get that much out of a tank?

I get about 8 months out a of 10 lb. tank.

What type of molasses are you considering?  My personal experience is that even a few ounces of the dark stuff is unpleasant.

We were down in Ft. Lauderdale on the beach for a family vacation.

Nice, I hope you made it to The Elbow Room.  I grew up about half a mile up the road.

I'm the guy who picked a bad time to get another beer and missed the picture.

It was really great meeting all of you though.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: North Coast Brother Thelonious

A little spendy at 8$ for a .5L bottle, but cork finished, bottle conditioned Belgian not bad.

With prices out here, I consider $8 a bottle to be a pretty good value.

I also think it's a great beer - one of the few commercial brews I purchase.
