That seems off to me.. Thinking about it this way:

16 oz of 7% abv = 1.12 oz of ethanol in the pint
1 oz of 40% abv = 0.4 oz of ethanol

So you now have 1.52 oz of ethanol in 17oz of fluid (assuming perfect mixing etc)

1.52 / 17 = 0.089 = 8.9%

Dropped in the Pinot Noir oak last night and I really think this beer is going to be a humdinger.

I'm pretty much a 90 minute man. Good boil reductio and break.

No but in true BN fashion last year a couple of guys wandered the halls in nutters. *shudder*

I think you'll find as with most things homebrewing - it is a relaxed crowd. Given the traditional online jokes I'm just happy no one does the whole "no pants" option.

The most people dress up for is the Banquet unless you're me. :)

Drew do you have a job?   ;)

Yup, but I only sleep 4-5 hours a night.

I can't brew this week! My kettles are being used for water baths!

But.. I do have to add the pinot noir oak to my ~2 year dark wild ale. Thinking maybe of getting some sour cherry juice for a portion of it. Anyone got a good source?

Also, gotta do the checkin for the Mayfaire competition. Haven't checked recently, but last I knew we were heading north of 250.

And then Falcons' Meeting - Spring Beers. - guess I should probably go buy a few.

God I hope it wasn't actually a new functioning item

8 days and 36 gallons. Isn't that cute!! I brewed 42 gallons of IPA on Friday.  :)

Ohh.. check out the big man with his big kettles. :)

Looking forward to breaking in all you "newbies" at our 5 hour long GC meeting in Minneapolis!

Froshman GC members have to bring the beer!

Also thanks everyone for voting - there was an absurdly kickass slate of candidates this year!

I'll give you one hint about the brewery - it's in a garage in Pasadena. :)

And there we go.. another 12 gallons down tonight.

So 8 days, 36 gallons and thank the maker. Can't brew until this ferments done because my HLT is now serving as a water bath.

No changing the description - so if you're rebrewing - keep it the same.

Regardless, even if you did get to change the description I would say its poor form to try and advance a drastically different recipe from your first round qualifier.

I'd really just like to combine the two!

I'm thinking I might fire up the kettles tomorrow and brew another beer. 36 gallons in 8 days is a pretty good speed. :)

I don't know how successful trying to smoke the wood would be. For all of its porosity, I just don't think it would hold onto any significant portion of smoke particulate other than a surface coating.

You do however tend to get smokey flavors from heavy toasted oak chips/cubes.

But as with all things, the answer is - give it a try - in small quantities would be best. :)
