On Midwest's site.  It's out of stock, and when you click on it, it says "discontinued".  Balls!

Ah.  It's the Briess version of the Belgian debittered black malt.  Good to see there are other options.  It's often hard to find the Carafa special in all the grades.

Thanks.

I remember first seeing Steven Wright in Desperately Seeking Susan.  Hilarious deadpan cameo.
Says it's discontinued now.  Damn it!

Midwest is where I stumbled across BlackPrinz also.  It's a nice malt.  I used a whole pound in my India Black Ale.  But this thread is about black ale recipes, not the hoppy dark beer style (see thread title).

Total Recall?  Really??  Pffff...That movie rocked, why remake it?

Why not remake something like Fahrenheit 451 or something?  Although, I'm not sure about that one either.

They should remake Beerwars and take that stupid chick from Moonshot out of there...

EDIT: 6 new replies while I was typing my post...jesus.  The Tim Burton Batman series was crap?  WTF are you talking about?  I seriously question your taste and judgment in movies...

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Blow-Off Top Cropping
« on: March 29, 2011, 01:42:55 PM »
He says in there, I think, that the yeast isn't very thick, so I'd say you'd want a starter with it.  Seems like a pretty good method to get healthy yeast.  I'd like to try it as well.

It's like saying to a wolf, "look, a steak."

"Werewolf"
"Werewolf !"
"There"
"What ?"
"There wolf... there castle"
"Suit yourself.  I'm easy!"

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Oxyclean...I'm doing something wrong...
« on: March 29, 2011, 12:35:12 PM »
Is this pretty necessary?  I never do this.  Usually after a keg kicks, I rinse it out with water really well and run some through the lines.  Every few times I'll run Oxyclean through and let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse with water.  Should I be doing this with PBW instead?  Or BLC?

Nope, it's not.  After talking to one of the 5 Star guys at NHC about how PBW was better for organic residue, though, I decided to try a test.  I cleaned some buckets with Oxiclean.  Then when they were really clean, I cleaned them again with PBW.  The PBW seemed to darken like it was removing stuff that the Oxi hadn't gotten.  I decided that PBW probably did a better job than Oxi, but not enough better to justify the expense of using it every time.  I still think Oxi does a great job.
So it's safe to say that I could clean all my equipment and my beer lines with Oxyclean and shouldn't have a problem.
That's encouraging to know.  The brewing cleaning stuff isn't cheap.

Thought you were ditching that gig, Denny?

Oh that's a good idea.  I have a one gallon pitcher that would work well for something like that also.

I believe the guy from 5 Star said on Brew Strong that PBW has a chelator, where Oxyclean does not.  So there is less chance of hard water scale build up or something like that.

You're correct.  I use Oxiclean most of the time and about every 3 cleanings I use PBW to remove the tough organic stuff.
