General Homebrew Discussion / Re: watery flavor to finished beer

I am noticing  a Watery flavor or weakness to my beer.
Can this be conected to the ph level .
I ask that since I have not been checking it and am trying to find a reason or a fix.

Really there's little reason to attempt a diagnosis without a recipe and brewing info. Is it an ongoing problem or just your latest batch?

But maybe Gordon gave you all the info you need... ???

Really!?  :D

Bluestar is downtown on S. Alamo. Short walking distance for a New Yorker- even cheaper in a cab. Honestly, never had it but it's supposed to be a decent brewpub. Will have to make it sometime. Very close to that is Liberty Bar. They say serious I say damn good. Again another but waay out on the North Side is Freetail Brewing Co.

Oh you meant more serious food downtown? Biga on the Banks.$$$ There's really a multitude of places good and bad- I like local establishments for inexpensive Vietnamese, Thai and Tex Mex.

It's a huge city. A car city like LA so if you're downtown as a conventionero it makes sense to stay there unless you know a local  ;) and have access to a car.  ;)

Welcome to San Antonio Gordon. Or Bienvenidos. It's lovely this time of year.

I've heard of it. But with the addition of oranges. It was fermented at hot temps while traveling in a van through Mexico so no wonder the author wasn't particularly complementary of it. I think at ale temps it ought to be pretty good.

Nice. Price is a bit steep, but then again it ain't your average beat up old corny keg.

I've gotten several "private" calls on my cellphone in the last couple days. Experience has taught me not to answer. Didn't occur to me that it would be a political call. Probably in Spanish anyway. ;)

I'm headed to the polls in a few hours.

Oh it's one thing or the other. Now it'll be Christmas ads bombarding us from every angle for the next seven weeks.

Poor family. Misguided father.

I remember thinking no way that kid will survive a crash landing. It was something to see. I'm glad it was all a hoax.

I drank a lot of PBR but never anything pre 1978. I laud your courageous email to the company. May they see your wisdom and profit by it!

They are derived from Perle which I found to be very earthy. Interesting they get tropical as a late addition.

I read somewhere- don't have anything to cite- that EKG's are rapidly vanishing due their acreage being diminished in England.

Used to mix Fuggs and EKG. What a  combination!

I like the unfiltered sake the best. Maybe it's the homebrewer in me.

How about Toddy? Palm wine

Yup legal stuff is nasty. Especially when lots of money is involved. Here's a raise of the goblet to you and your friend. Hope you're enjoying the Chimay. I'm opening a "White" in honor of your departed boss. ;D

Oh my word... it's excellent! Cheers!

...and the $100K+ price tag for multi-county search and rescue efforts...

When it was all unfolding- I sat riveted watching the tv- one of the experts said they don't charge for search and rescue because if they did it might discourage people from reporting real emergencies. True? I don't know but if they're being charged for it I guess it's warranted in this case!

My understanding is that you can create the ginger plant yourself by soaking shredded ginger in a bowl for several days and letting it ferment on it's own. Or something like that.

As far as Kefir goes I've had two small portions- about half a cup the last two mornings. The results today were "interesting" to say the least. Or I hope it is the Kefir...

I have one from Northern Brewer on my aluminum kettle. Two years so far and no issues.   I did purchase a replacement O-ring the last time I was in St Paul, however, just in case the O-ring eventually degrades with the heat.

I bought a step drill and made the hole myself, and I would do it again in a heart beat!

I can say putting the spigot on the kettle made transfering a ton easier!  I would not have a kettle without one now that I know how easy it was to install and how well it works.

My experience also.

Mine's not two years but works fantastic with out a drop leaked. I added a o-ring to the inside because I was getting bi-metallic corrosion. The step drill was expensive but worked like a charm.

Wish I hadn't waited so long. :)

They will. But you'll find reason to use them. ;)
