General Homebrew Discussion / Re: GABF
« on: February 09, 2012, 09:56:43 AM »
Well, the KROC event is free (The World Brewers Fourm). There will be announcements as the GABF gets closer. I would not bother going to the convention hall on Friday or Saturday night (unless as a volunteer server) so that only leaves you with Thursday night and/or Saturday afternoon to attend (and buy tickets).

But do not worry about that. There are literally hundreds of beer events going on in Denver for those days (Thurs - Sun). With the opening of several new beer bars and breweries in Denver since the last GABF I am sure there will even be more this year.

It is definately a "must attend" event for and beer lover. How much you spend will be up to you. One piece of advice for a hotel (if you need one) I would give would be to stay north or south of Denver because the rates get cheaper the farther away from downtown you stay. As long as you are close to I-25 public transportation is very good.

I have gone from brewing to serving a Hefe in as little as 7 days and everyone loved it. It is SUPPOSED to be cloudy.  ;)

Belgian Stout yeast. Anyone used it yet? If so, what do you think?

Thanks, that did it (it is a strange thing to have to check).

Buffet tickets hell, more like a Led Zepplin reunion tour !

Hotel and Conference booked. Now, they just have to let me come home from Afghanistan in time to go. I missed last year's NHC because of this freakin' deployment !  >:(

I booked the hotel but no matter how I try the book the conference on the AHA webiste I get this error:

"There are one or more errors with your registration and it cannot be saved to the cart at this time. Please review your selections and then add the registration to the cart"

I have tried the full package and the social package options - same error.

Beer Recipes / Re: Its kind of like an alt?

I would add 1oz of carafa for color. It looks like you will be on the light side without it.

Ingredients / Re: does 6 row need a pritein rest?
« on: January 24, 2012, 10:36:31 AM »
It depends on what other fermentables you have in the mash. Most people don't use 6-row unless they are using some other fermentable that has low or no diastatic power, like corn or rice. Together these ingredients benefit from a protien rest.

Champagne corker

You will never have to buy another device for bottling - whether it be wine, champagne, belgian corks, or bottle caps.

Beer Recipes / Re: IIPA recipe / how's it look?

 I would drop the cara-pils as well, and increase the corn sugar to 10% of the fermentables and drop the pale malt accordingly.

I still would like to know about those rubber/hybrid corks.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: SN Ruthless Rye IPA

"Very nice beer.  Very fresh too.  I like how they rye and hop flavors combine and compliment each other.  I like the bitter finish.  Time to grab a couple of cases today.  This beer will go very nicely with my tradional Frogmore Stew on Superbowl Sunday!"

How the heck do you know what Frogmore Stew is living in Hawaii? I am from SC.

I have not. I have a friend who turned me on the website and she has made a meadowfoam and a baby's breath mead. They are both pretty young right now. When I get back I plan to order some pumpkin blossom honey.

Check out

They have pumpkin blossom honey and several other unique ones.

A Saison with a lot of Brett character belongs in Belgian Specialty. It will get dinged in the Saison category if the judges are good.

That is not it. It is under the "other fermentables" section and has a chart (similar to the decoction chart). I believe the first rest is at 95F or so.
