haha, that's hilarious.  There's a beer brewed by Estes Park brewery called Staggering Elk, this story reminded me of that.

Yessir.  Just put in the fridge for a couple days like tygo said and add new wort to it a few days before you want to use it.

I think when he asked if he should "pitch it" he meant "throw it away" not pitch pitch it. 
I think he should save it, too.
I agree.  Pitch it, not pitch it!

I've never heard winter referred to as a "she".  It's always been Old Man Winter to me.  So I think "he" is more appropriate in this case.  Winter can be like a bitter old man, but I sure like it.  Snow, gets dark early, cold; it's so tranquil.  Come home from work, get warm and cozy and have a beer or three.  Hibernate.  Hmmm, good name for a beer, Hibernation Ale.  But Great Divide already took the name!  Boo!  Well, they don't distribute to Iowa, so sorry for them.  I'm using it for a homebrew!
Anyway, on topic, I really wish I had a fire'd make winter even more amazing than it already is.

I like my Cross Dressing Amateurs with some roast in them.

Ingredients / Re: Galaxy hops

There's a brewery in Iowa that distributes to my area that has a Galaxy IPA and it's delicious.  I thought grapefruit and citrus when I had it, not sure what passion fruit is.  But this hop will hit it big here in not too long, I'm thinking.  Certainly could be an Amarillo sub I think.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Pumpkin spice Ale!
« on: September 01, 2011, 12:21:02 PM »
Looks good.  I might suggest not putting the pumpkin in the mash though, it would make the run off problematic, I think.  Put it in at the end of the boil, say 15 minutes from the end.  And the spices can be put in at flameout, that will impart plenty of flavor and aroma.  Good luck!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Leaks suck!

Vacuum leaks suck.  Pressure leaks blow.

Reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw:
"Mean people suck.  Nice people swallow "   :o

Wait a minute, that's not right.

Neat, thanks for sharing!

Awesome.  I should try harder to embrace my Czech heritage by brewing some bohemian pilsners and whatnot.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Salty beer?

If that's the case, Leos, I wouldn't worry about it.  It's one negative comment out of multitudes of positive comments.  Take it with a grain of salt.............Ho Ho Hoooooo!!!

Salty. Probably the guy didn't know how to articulate "bitter" or any other number of flavors. But I know about the negative comment bugging ya. One can have 99 people tell them what a badass job they're doing and then latch onto the single poor response. :-\
I feel this same way about playing music live.  I have super high expectations for myself, so when I screw up, I can't help but think that every musician in the crowd notices.  And it's only them that notice too, usually.  Played a show on Saturday, crowd was way into it, but I played shaky in the first song, only a couple people maybe noticed at all, but still I can't get over it...fixated on the small, negatives...

Man, you and your internet acronyms.  What is this? I am not a liar?

Well, that, too, but...

That's pretty much saying the same thing, haha.

The Pub / Re: Aren't some of you guys drummers?
« on: August 29, 2011, 02:19:33 PM »
I'm a huge Rush fan, so most drummers don't impress me, but I'm surprised no one mentioned Bill Bruford from Yes, definitely one of the best out there and also a Hall of Fame member.

Well, that's a shame.  Neil Peart is good, but there are countless other amazing drummers out there as well.  If you think there's no one better than Neil, you are surely not looking very far for other great drummers.
