Ingredients / Brewing a CAP
« on: January 29, 2015, 12:41:08 PM »
And my recipe calls for 2 pounds of cooked rice. How much is that before cooking? 1 pound? If not , what is the correct ratio of uncooked vs cooked?

Thanks

The AHA e-mailed me my code twice - once last week and again this morning. I was able to purchase 2 tickets to the members only session, which is better than I was able to do last year, so I am satisfied.  :) The site was too busy for me to print my tickets but I will try that again later.

What are your thoughts about it? Does it have Brett (B)?

I brewed my "Harvest Saison" - with 3 lbs malted oats, 3 lbs malted rye, 3 lbs malted wheat, and 3 lbs malted spelt. I was also shooting for a local angle with the rest of the grain bill being Colorado 2-row and adding 2 lbs of Colorado honey to bump up the OG to 1.066 and help dry it out.

Cleaned and sanitized 5 kegs on Saturday and got the brewery ready for brewing. On Sunday I brewed 10 gallons of Oktoberfest (actually 5 will become Vienna Lager), cleaned out the lagering fridge and kegged my latest IIPA and Double Bastard clone.

I did get around to cleaning the lines in the kegerator or bottling 2 beers that need it (McChouffe clone and Belgian Double Bastard).  :(

I am a convert from propane to electric. Here is my system: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=18605.0

20 gallon vessels for 10 gallon batches.

If you have the space for it a dedicated room is great. My system is always set up and ready to go. NOt like brewing in the garage where I have to move the vehicles, clean the garage, get everything out and set up, then do it all in reverse after brewing.

As for the stand, I went with chrome wire shelving and am quite happy with that. Comes in a flat box and sets up in 10 minutes. However, after considering the costs It probably would have be caper just to buy a used stainless steele restaraunt prep table. They are on the restaraunt auctions around here all the time.

Yes, I was thinking 2 lbs per gallon as well. Maybe have it ready for Valentine's Day.

That has been my plan for a while now. I just have to get the prickly pears when they are in season. It requires a lot of them to get much flavor.

ESB for me. About time to get back to a "normal" style. :o 10 gallons, OG 1.058, 58 IBU's, SRM 10

It can be done easily with the right equipment - namely, a champagne corker like this one:

I have one but my LHBS rents theirs out for $10 a day.

Also, those bottles will take the Euro 29mm bottle caps but you need the larger bell for yor bottle capper, about $10.
