Wow, so you do brew beer?   ;D

I recently cold brewed some coffee with a french press and added it to the keg.  Still awaiting results.  Smelled really good when I was racking the oatmeal stout onto the coffee though.  Hope it doesn't turn south on me, I didn't sanitize the french press container before brewing it.

Man, you sent that PM and I responded almost right away saying I could hang out in there for a little bit, then you weren't there! 

I believe I will be brewing my None More Black IPA since I finally got the Blackprinz malt that I wanted and have some simcoe left.

That's just wrong.  I like bacon, but it's not THAT freakin' good...

Equipment and Software / Re: How's your Thermapen?

I like my Thermapen.  Really lets you know how different the temp is in your mash even just a few inches apart.

I meant for President.

Dude, I'm crazy but not THAT crazy!

But I bet the White House home brew would be better than the conoe stuff brewed there recently.
Ha, for true.

There is a brewery near me with a "tasting room" that is as nice as any brewpub I've been to.  Their food consists of pretzels, but you are welcome to bring your own food and there is a pizza place nearby that delivers to the brewery all of the time (and has theme pizzas to go with beers - they have a great relationship).  The brewery is always packed, and will give you plates/napkins/utensils if you need them.

Just like you don't want to serve crappy beer, don't serve crappy food.  If you can't do it right, save the money on the kitchen and just let people bring their own food.
I like this business model.  The brewpub I go to most often around here is like that.  They just have popcorn.  They also have guest beers every Thursday from Midwest breweries.  There's several places to get food from around there.  Kinda sucks that you can't just have someone bring it to you, like your waiting staff, but whatever.  They still draw a good crowd.

and may i add, you better have damn good food or they won't come back even if the beer is good.
I don't think that's true at all, not everyone goes out to eat AND drink.  Some people just want to stop somewhere after work for a couple beers and head home for dinner.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Bohemian Lager Yeast at Ale Temps?
« on: February 07, 2012, 02:17:36 PM »
I brewed a 1554 clone using that yeast at my normal ale temp, probably 62F or so.  It turned out pretty good, better than I expected.

Sleep-beer, awake-coffee. And I like turtles too. And bacon, which goes amazingly well with both coffee AND beer..
Bacon is overrated.  :o

All Grain Brewing / Re: How careful are you?

I don't usually get too involved in readings and stuff.  I do try to measure weight of hops and grains pretty much right on.  I take an OG reading before I pitch the yeast and one a day or two before I keg.

it was the Americans that were loud, fat, and demanding.

Hey...I resemble that remark...I mean resent  ;D

Of course, the problem is that in the touristy places, the waiters etc really ARE jerks, and in a lot of the shops near touristy areas the customer service is HORRIBLE. Ya just gotta go a little further out, is all.
Same here in the States, and not to just the foreign tourisrts, but Americans as well.
My girlfriend's sister was in town for xmas and she works in a restaurant in Times Square in NYC.  She was telling us how foreign people come in all the time and don't speak English and how they're rude if you don't understand THEM.  She was saying how when they do that, she just walks away.  She was b****ing about how French people smell and get all rude when you can't understand them.  I was thinking to myself, "Americans are the same, except we wear tons of nasty smelling perfume and think the world is made for us."  She was annoying the piss out of me, ruined my night, unfortunately.
I pretty much think a**holes are going to be anywhere you go.  Americans are a special kind of a**hole with the "come to our country, speak English or die, follow OUR traditions, blah blah blah" attitude.
