Beer Recipes / Re: Midnight Wheat

Thanks for the info guys!  They had a decent looking recipe for a black IPA using Midnight Wheat on the Briess website so I may give that a try.  I have 2#'s so I can probably use it in a couple recipes.  The red wheat sounds like a good idea.

What are some good recipe suggestions for the specialty grain Midnight Wheat?  Anyone know what it imparts into a beer other than color?


I am master of my domain.  ;)

Our club is doing a couple of exhibition brews and also a home brew contest to coincide.

Do a SMaSH beer each session.

I like that idea!  I was thinking of doing some "teas" of steeped specialty grains to see what flavors they would add.

Hey all I'm looking for some ideas for topics for education for my home brew club.  We are about 30 strong and have a fair mix of all grain and extract brewers.  I have done some talks in past about efficiency and have done some tastings with tainted beers to emulate off flavors. 

Looking for some suggestions for a 10 minute presentation.

I haven't taken the online test yet but I did take the course to get you ready to take the test a little over a year ago and had the same problem with trying to find a testing close to me.  The closest one, 2 hours away, was filled a year in advance.  :'(

So the "summer of Paul" is over? (Also a Costanza reference)  :)

I like to share mine at club meetings and with certain of my friends.  Most of my beers are pretty hop centric and don't appeal to many of the BMC drinkers, especially my family.  They all think my beer is too "strong".

Woo Hoo more women who brew!  Great to see the hobby expanding!  Is it just me or are women who brew sexy?  8)

I am a shaker as well.  ;)  I think the best advise is to let the yeast tell you when it is done.  Read the specs on the yeast you are using and figure out what final gravity you are looking at, but just because it reaches final gravity does not mean it is done.  Most yeasts will need some extra time to "clean up"....

I'm just happy to know that I am not the only one that can't stand The Brewing Network.  I tried to listen to one episode a while back and couldn't get past the belches and immature humor. 

I guess I am just too old...  Now get off my lawn!  ;D

Pretty funny commercial, but what's truly hilarious is the nutritional content of a 12 piece order of "traditional" BWW wings:

Calories: 1,340
Fat: 110 grams (44 grams of which is saturated fat)
Cholesterol: 310 miligrams
Sodium: 2,860 miligrams

2,860 mg sodium. Built to make you buy more beer.  Wonder what the sodium content of bratwurst beer would be?  ???

I had one slip out of my hands and break on the driveway.  Scared the crap out of me and I haven't used one since.

Equipment and Software / Re: Best wort chiller for the money?
« on: August 30, 2012, 02:46:35 PM »
i am in the process of building a cross flow heat exchanger. i have a 2 gallon bucket with an inlet in the lid and outlet near the bottom. this i circulate ice water through via a submersible pump.  inside the bucket is about 20 feet of copper tubing that protrudes (both ends) through the sides. this i can pump the wort through. it will be getting a final test this weekend and if it works will add pictures.

A friend of mine in our club built one of these and it works quite well.

I use my RIMS to recirculate ice water through my submersion chiller and whirlpool and I can cool 10 gallons down in about 15 minutes.
