The Pub / Re: How important is spelling?
« on: February 23, 2012, 01:48:24 PM »
I get annoyed at things like using 'there' in place of 'their' or saying 'a email' instead of 'an email', but that's all grammar stuff and not so much to do with spelling.

So basically you are saying your point is mute  ;D
;D I see what you did their. ;D
Funny! Very amusing! 

Actually what bothers me more is the overuse of acronyms these days.  I've actually heard someone say, "For your FYI".  I just wanna scream.

My neighbor retired at 55 with a $1000 per month pension. He hustles though. Buys and sells stuff. Odd jobs. He is happy and still provides for his wife, daughters and grandkids.

Right now he has a lawnmower torn apart and is working on it. :)


Still provides for them? What is this, 1950?

Well if you start with RO, it's probably close enough...

Missed where he said he used RO water.
Mort said he started with RO water and adjusted from there.  That why I said what I said.

All Grain Brewing / Re: smaller batches

CDA's...CDA's...I do not know of these Cross Dressing Amateurs you speak of...

You're going to do 2.5 gallon batches in 3 gallon better bottles?  You might want a blow off tube.  I do 3-4 gallon batches in 5 gallon carboys, works like a charm.  Don't use blow off tubes at all.

Definitely lower the crystal malts.  Also notice you're adding 4oz of hops at 60 minutes?  That's going to be bitter!  Cut that in half, at least!  And add all the roasted malt before you sparge, stir it in real well.  That way you don't have to mess with mash pH as much and you get the color with a smoother roasted flavor.  I love black IPAs, especially mine!

Ingredients / Re: Coffee Addition into Secondary
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:21:55 AM »
I made an espresso porter once by adding a shot (1oz) of fresh espresso at bottling to each pint of beer. It turned out really nice, with a distinct coffee flavor, but it was not overpowering and nice.
That seems like A LOT of espresso, 40 shots!  Espresso isn't cheap to make either.  Of course that wouldn't all fit in there either, so you probably had some beer left over.
I did what P.J. did, but only filtered with the french press.  A little coffee sediment will go unnoticed in 4-5 gallons of beer.

EDIT: tapped my breakfast stout last night and it was deeeelicious.  Just what I was hoping for.

EDIT: The new format of the forum puts the page back at the top after you post...not liking that.

This is why I run the forum reverse sorted with newer messages at the top
Ah, I get it.  Did that.
