Other Fermentables / Mead question on acid addition...
« on: June 27, 2011, 06:16:26 PM »
I am looking to make my first mead, and on studying some recipes, they call for an acid blend of citric, malic, and tartaric acids. Could I use just citric, or is using all 3 acids truly important? I know the use of the acid blend is optional. Just wondering if I can get a similar result with just citric? Thanks...

All 3 top clubs hail from California...  hmmm. A state with more people that 48 other states. Might as well say clubs from Cali should be disallowed from entering because Cali has a higher population, and more people to be in clubs, (hell, probably have more clubs period) than the other 48 states...NY, where are ya?

Good one, Denny, I fell for it, tried to flick the bug off my screen!

  It was late, been drinking a few...

I didn't want to be the first to say anything :D :D

we're you drinking? I was...... how many times did you try to flick the little s.o.b.?
Took 3 attempts before realizing why I couldn't hit the little bugger... and yes, alcohol may have been a factor... was drinking a 750ml bottle of La Trappe...

Alan "Mr. Fabulous' Rubin passed away on June 8.  RIP Mr. Fabulous.

I guess Jake came and told him they are getting the band back together...  Man, can you imagine the horn section he's playin' in now?

Time to watch Blues Brothers again. I didn't know they actually toured.
They actually toured rather extensively, I have several live albums of theirs

Congrats to the Bruins and their fans! Speaking on behalf of many Blackhawks fans, thank you for beating the Canucks.
+1   I'm an Avs fan, so yeah , it was nice to see them choke.  23 goals for Boston to 8 for Vancouver. How'd they even take it to 7 games?

Holy crap!  No way!  The music world is a much poorer place, without Mr. Fabulous.  I truly loved the Blues Brothers, and Alan made that group happen. Wow. Never will there be again a trumpet player of his quality.
I have a Blues Brothers tattoo, and his face is on it, along with all the others.  Truly, a sad day. RIP

All Grain Brewing / Re: Mash out questions
« on: June 13, 2011, 04:39:01 PM »
1.  Mash out basically stops the enzymatic activity, stops the conversion of starches in the grain to fermentable sugars.
2. Raising the temp of the mash to approx. 168* and holding for 10-15 mins.
3. Debatable, I have and I have forgotten, and noticed no difference.

So a longer sparge at a lower temperature makes the beer more fermentable?
No, rather a lower mash temp for longer

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Using two different yeasts
« on: June 11, 2011, 12:42:48 PM »
Quick update...  I pitched them both at the same time.  I really like the way this one came out.  Has a taste of pears, and a slight banana on the nose, slightly sweet, but man does it taste really good!  Might have to try it again...

A difference of .003 is negligible and I certainly wouldn't worry about it. 
+1  My beers are almost always close to the predicted numbers, but rarely ever spot on. My FG are almost always lower than predicted.

Beer Recipes / What would this be?
« on: June 07, 2011, 08:24:02 PM »
If I were to enter this in a competition, what would it be?
8# american 6 row
2# munich
1# biscuit
1# rolled oats

mash at 154* for 90 mins

1 oz cascade at 60 mins
1/2 oz williamette at 20 mins
1 oz williamette at 2 mins

I used 1056 american ale yeast on a starter.
Ferment at 67* for 10 days, or until done.

Thanks, entering my first comp with three beers, this is the only one I'm unsure of...
