I like the brewery schematics on the front. Did you have to send it somewhere to get that done?

I new this batch of beer would be a little more technically challengeing because of how I wanted to do it - 10 gallon IPA with 7% flaked oats split into 2 vessles for the boil so I could hop each one differently. However, what I did not count on was the false bottom in my mash tun coming off at the bottom of 27 lbs of mashed grain !  >:(

I tried just going with it but it became clear that the little trickle of wort I could get going was going to take me all afternoon to sparge. So I decided to take all of the hot, wet, sticky mash out of my mash tun, put into by boil kettle, re-attach the disconnected false bottom, then put the mash back in the mashtun, re-circ, then sparge again.  :P

I just got done with that and now the sparge is going beautifully. That was awfully thirsty work though so now I am having beer.  ;D

I get to Seattle on the 20th. Thanks Phill, I may have a ride with another forum member. I went to Karl Strauss Brewpub last night.

I am in San Diego now. Do one of you San Diego residents want a free dinner?

Any idea what the brewer's new place will be? Drydock is my favorite small Denver brewery. I use to work not too far from there, so I'd get my brewing supplies and a pint or two there. Their Hefe was solid. Maybe the best commercial Hefe I've had. I don't think GABF medals mean a whole lot, but I can see why that one got a gold.

Bill's new brewery is indeed called Prost Brewing. It is located near the Highlands area of Denver near Lodo / Coors field, but on the west side of I-25 just up the street from Amato's Ale House.

Look for it to be open sometime this summer. I will be there when it does.

I don't think Unibroue bottle conditions with brett. I would be amazed if that were true. Still, I am with Deny. Juts buy it from Wyeast.

I say use the Golden Promise but cut back on specialty malts such as caramunich or crystal.

Do I have your attention yet? What is the catch?

Basically, I need a ride. So, in exchange for round trip transportation between downtown San Diego and Stone I will buy you dinner there.

I will be returning from my deployment to Afghanistan and will be out-processing through San Diego. I will be there for a few days around June 12 - 14 or so and I would really like to get up to Stone while I am there. I won't have transportation - hence the request for a ride.

If anyone is interested please send me a message on the forum with your contact info. I will be traveling the next few days so it may take a while to get back with you.

The cold steep will give a much mellower roasted / burnt / coffee flavor.

Nope - his wife's. Apparently no one in Denver wants it  :o

Silver - I don't know why I was thinking gold. As for Sam Adams O-fest, it is my favorite widely distributed US-brewed O-fest (my top being mine - no distribution, except my garage, 2nd being Dry Dock's - but the brewer is now opening his own place so that may change).

I like to use some chocolate rye in my Rye Wine - just enough to give a red color and some depth of flavor. If you want to keep it simple this looks good to me.

I would use a "cold-steeping" method for the carafa. Let it soak overnight in cold water, strain, then boil the liquid for 15 minutes of so while you are brewing. The resulting liquor can be added anytime to achieve the color/taste you want. You can even can it and store refridgerated for several months.

Do something to sanitize the vanilla bean (like soaking in vodka) if you put it in the secondary. They have lots of bacteria.
