All Things Food / Re: BBQ Style
« on: November 23, 2010, 12:10:55 AM »

Personally, I do not get bright beautiful beer unless I secondary, cold crash, and lager; or use a post-fermentation fining agent. And I find the flavor of too much suspended yeast to be unpleasant, especially in hoppy beers, which can be biting and needlessly bitter when I don't clear out the yeast. I also like to reuse my yeast several times, and so I don't like putting anything (dry hops or polyclar or gelatin) in my primary vessel. So I frequently do a secondary. When do I not do a secondary? When I am brewing a cloudy style like a witbier, or when I am brewing a low-gravity beer with an English yeast strain, or when I just don't have time.

I like this statement. In my experience residual yeast can carry off flavors as well. An unhappy beer sometimes benefits from clearing.

You could try the Alton Brown method. Season and wrap in foil. In a 250ish oven for about 2.5 hours. Then drain and reduce liquid.  Open foil and baste ribs with it. Pop in oven at 375 until carmelized.

They've had massive airplay over the years. At least in my neck of the woods. Good band.

Beautiful! Nice artistic craftsmanship. Expensive?

It good to have someone who supports your passion. Looks like she has it too...

Kegging and Bottling / Re: CO2 question.

This is not your problem, but is worth knowing . . . the CO2 tank valve is only sealed when the tank is all of the way closed or all of the way open.  If you are going to leave pressure on your kegs, make sure you open the tank all of the way until it stops, otherwise it will be leaking.  At least, this is what one welding gas supplier told me and another confirmed.

That is interesting. Leaking around the stem?

I've always called it a poolish. And IMO the approach lends itself to making great bread.

Bottle it. I'm trying to finish a keg of BW and it's hard slow work.

Questions about the forum? / Re: time

I had to change mine. Didn't really think that much of it except maybe it should have been automatically adjusted. But, surely there's a reason behind not having a daylight saving feature.

I wanted to see it but got distracted by Top Gear. Could have DVR'd it too. By the time I snapped was 3am and toooo late...  :(

It'll air again.

Hmmm. A Top Gear show with wooden American actors. Bump up the passion guys!

Not bad. Preconceptions aside the Lambo's are pretty awesome!

Regardless, looking back on it 158F is pretty high by convention. I'm surprised you've hit 1.018 at all. So probably you really weren't that high due to the imbalances in a direct fired mashing process. Convection and mixing etc...

Try batch sparging at a single infusion temp- say 153F...?
