I use starsan as well.  I'm a little paranoid and have dedicated tubing, siphon and airlocks for sours.

Judging at War of the Worts on Saturday and maybe a belgian braggot on Sunday.

« on: February 22, 2013, 06:44:59 AM »
The only time I use a blow off tube is when I use wyeast 3068 or 3787.

What kind of barrel was it and how was it cared for before you filled it with beer?  To me this looks like the beginning of a brett pellicle.

Magpie is the correct entity...

A black-billed magpie to be specific.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Looking for a good AG recipe book
« on: February 07, 2013, 08:03:27 AM »
I often use recipes out of BCS as a starting point.  DGB has a lot of great information, but is a bit dated. For belgians, sours or wheat beers I like the Farmhouse Ales, Brew Like a Monk, Wild Brews and Brewing ith Wheat.

Ingredients / Re: El Dorado Hops

I'm just finishing up a keg of el dorado pale ale.  The hops have a nice fruitiness, almost like cherry lifesave.

Do the full thing.

Read the first time attendee guide.

Get prepared for lots of beer, and lots of fun.

You won't regret it.
You might regret it if you book an early flight for Sunday. ;)

I made that mistake last year...that was a rough morning.  Luckily this year I can sleep in.

I would try and keep the beer below 70.  Make sure you've got a blow off tube on it, this yeast really rocks!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Yeast nutrient

I don't know that I've made a beer without yeast nutrients.  I use Wyeast Nutrient blend, a pinch in my starters and 1/2 tsp with 10 min left in the boil.

I personally can't justify the cost of a 4-5 L flask, so I use 1 gal glass jugs. $40 buys a lot of ingredients.

All of my glass jugs have a concave bottom and I couldn't get the stir bar to stay on.

People pay for beer glasses?

It looks like I am paying $255 for a glass this year, know what I mean?  :)

Think of all the free refills you'll get.

I will let you buy me a beer on club night. Hope you have yours there.

Deal
