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?

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.  :)

Yes.  Mine said, "If you are in Afghanistan, keep your head down and get your ass back here to us in one piece."

All else is irrelevant.

 ;) I have been doing that. Thanks. 3 weeks to go !

My wife sent me an e-mail saying that she just did not want to miss it. As my comm access is spotty I wanted to make sure.

Thanks for the input. Tom, I think she will do ok. It is only 3 bottles that she has to pack and mail.

What is the difference between my Belgian Golden Strong and Tripel? The BGS has more hops and the Tripel has a bit of aromatic malt. Otherwise the grain bills between the two are the same - pils and sugar.

Has anyone received their instruction packet for the final round?

For a Hefe I do a rest at 112 for 10 minutes and another at 131 for 10 minutes. If you are interested in the whole mash regiment I can give it. I also do a decoction step.
