Congrats on the success!  In addition to the question about what your next beer is...the other big question is what's going to be your next toy for the brew system?
I think I'm gonna build a brew bench, or buy a conical fermenter, haven't decided yet.

ok, but if you haven't had it, try their Abt 12....awesome beer.
+1   I truly love the ABT 12, definitely one of my all time faves.

That's great, congratulations :)
Thanks, Tom, and congratulations to you on being elected to the governing commitee! I also liked your contribution to the gadgets edition of Zymurgy...
Thanks and thanks ;D

But now the question is, what are you doing for your next batch?
I'm going to try an abbey, or maybe the biere de garde featured on the home page here.

Cool! Great style choice on first all-grain.
Thanks, I really love a good belgian.  Been drinking them for years, it's what truly started me in homebrewing. I'm super stoked my first came out so well!

Do you have a stir plate?

There was a recent article I think in BYO about apartment all-grain brewing. I'll look it up and get back to you.
I kind of rather enjoy the bottling process. Turn on some good tunes (loud as you can), pour a glass or three of your favorite brew, and just think of how good it's all gonna taste afterwards! For me, it's a labor of love.

I ust sampled my first all grain brew, a belgian style tripel, and holy crap, was it good!  A little weak on carbonation, (only been bottled for a week, I used corn sugar) but damn, I think I nailed it on the first try!  Sorry, I just had to boast a little!  Thanks to all who gave me advise on the recipe and mash, I don't think it would have been as good without you guys! ;D

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Orval - disappointed

Belgian beers are my absolute favorites, but the taste from one to another can vary greatly. I like Chimay, love Koenigshoven, don't like Orval, really love Malhuer.  Its all relative to your own taste. Try different ones, you'll find something you like...

All Things Food / Re: A new Sushi place
« on: April 03, 2011, 02:58:31 PM »
There's two places in my town that are great; Tomo Sushi, and Fujiyama.  Fujiyama is expensive, but really good. Tomo is somewhat cheaper, and have a good selection.

All Grain Brewing / Re: 2.5 hour mash ?

Wouldn't a conversion test with iodine tell you whether it's done in the mash or not?

At least you're able to own up to it. Kudos to you for that.

La Jolla just north of SD has some good beaches, and when I was there in april, lotsof seals to watch

1.5 gallons loss in boil seems a little high. I could be wrong.  But I do a 60-90 minute boil (depending on what I'm brewing) and usually only lose 1/2 to 3/4 gallon.
