Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Massive haul from trip to CO

For you folks that don't like Funkwerks standard Saison - the GABF judges do not a agree with you. It won Gold last year.

With a beer this big you would be much better off brewing a regular gravity beer (1.050 or so) and harvesting the yeast for this batch.

The grain bill looks fine to me.

+1 on 16E. Definately not 23.

Beer Recipes / Re: Which BJCP#? 16E or 20A

I would ask myself "Is it mango first, then beer, or is it Belgian Beer first, then mango" and enter it accordingly. I.E. - Mango first would be in "fruit beer" and Belgian first would be in "Belgian Specialty".

Or you could enter it in both  ;)

Definately not a Pils. Pretty much a hoppy, American Brown Ale.

Let us know how it turns out. I am planning to use 1/2 oz in a German-style Hefe - bittering hop only.

Oktoberfest in June? Who ever heard of such a thing? That is like the commercial stores putting out Christmas stuff before Haloween - oh, wait, they do that now.  :o

As for harvesting the yeast, +1 on not after you fined it.

Tom and I almost decided to drive but considering I will just be getting home from 1 1/2 years away 6 days before the NHC I could not see adding 2 - 4 more days to my trip by driving. I am amazed my wife is letting me go at all.

Come on, which one would YOU choose?

From those I would pick American Farmhouse or Saison II but that is just how I roll.  ;D

I think a much more practicle solution would be a small glycol chiller, whether it be homemade or bought. Look online for deals. I recently had an opportunity to buy one for $200.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Storing Yeast Starters?
« on: May 23, 2012, 03:12:53 AM »
Are you talking yeast starters with just unfermented wort? If so, can them and they will last a long time in the fridge. With the "canning method" I have kept starters for 6 months or longer before use.

Thanks for the info Janis. I wasn't trying to be pushy. With me in Afghanistan and my wife busy chasing around our 2 children at home I just want to make sure we did not miss it.

See you in Seattle.

That's it! No need for me to post the rest of my mash schedule. We must have read the same book.  :)
