Ingredients / Re: Flaked Oats

If you want to be absolutely spot on with the correct way to handle things, yes you need to mash the oats with a little pale malt to ensure they'll convert.

Basically think of it as a controlled steep at 15-something Fahrenheit (aka 155F) with some crushed 2-row and a few quarts of water.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast choice for wheat beers

Depends upon what you're wanting out of the yeast.

It will make beer, but it won't make a Hefeweizen for instance - to get those clovey, banana, bubblegum things you'd expect from a German wheat beer, you'll need a Hefe yeast.

But if you're wanting to make a neutral-esque British smelling wheat ale, sure thing

Ya know, 35 years ago I was HOT!  :)

That's just cause you kept catching your hair on fire. :)

And just cause it's funny and I laugh that my "friends" would post such a picture.

If I bring the ukulele to NHC this summer, I'd say our GC meeting is in danger!

Is it too late to drop out of the election?  ;D

On that note... don't forget to vote for your Governing Committee!

In the days when I was playing in bands, I once cleared an entire bar full of drunks by singing one verse of "Mustang Sally"!  Yes, I'm that bad....

Useful to know if we ever have too rowdy a crowd at club night or pro brewer's night.

What's the beeps, peeps?

They already have beer that won't get you drunk. It's called Miller 64.

What about Bud Select 55 - after all 55 is the new 64. (At least in the sign in my local bodega tells me so)

I use the Acid 5 Rinse for about 10 minutes of soaking time and beerstone peels right off with no work.

Love it!

Hmm, not sure how I feel about the campden addition. Doesn't really seem necessary (of course, I'm also asthmatic so I tend to try and keep sulfites away.

Otherwise, It's possible your white is wax that's survived into the bottle. Of course the other possiblity is a wild yeast or worse an acetobactor (which wouldn't produce any co2). Watch how the taste goes.
