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!

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.

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.

The only time my beer has ever tasted salty is when I've used that useless pH stabilizer powder.  Otherwise, I'm not sure what could be causing it.  Do you make a lot of mineral additions to your water?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Active fermentation.....
« on: August 29, 2011, 12:07:43 PM »
Do you normally pitch that warm?  Or was the power out?

It took me a long time to get it down that far. The water coming out of the tap just isn't cool enough..... Didn't want to wait any longer. See my "Chilling the Wort" thread in equipment.
You can leave them bunged and in the freezer without the yeast overnight and let it pull them temp down to pitching temps.  I do it all of the time.
Having just gotten a chest freezer and temp controller this is what I plan to do.  Don't have a good enough chiller to get it down to lager ferm temps.  76F is pretty high...might be fuselly. 

The Pub / Re: Why am I still here?

I haven't brewed a batch in over a year. At least. My stockpile is all but gone.  :'(
Naw man, you're just on a break.  I haven't trained kung fu in almost a year, but that doesn't I quit doing it.  I plan to go back and I still talk to my brothers and Sifu at the school.  Can't force yourself to do it if you don't have the spirit, you have to have the itch.
Sorry to hear about the divorce though, that sounds s***ty.
