General Homebrew Discussion / Re: how long would you lager a Trad Bock?
« on: January 14, 2014, 10:38:24 AM »
I'm lucky as a homebrewer there's no deadline or threat of losing money if I let it go another week or two so I typically lager for a month or two tasting until ready...or to be honest I try to forget things are lagering to let them go the right age (I get impatient) so...when I remember it's been in the fridge getting tasty.

My sister in law is demanding I have three types of wine  and at least four different beers ready for when she's done with labor...so I'm gonna go with whatever the woman who is pregnant says and not ask questions.

Very much like you I've come to a point where my "everything and kitchen sink" beer experiments are slowing down and I'm enjoying a good ESB or Pils. I always keep on tap an ESB, and Irish Red (for my good friend and boss), and an experimental beer of the week.

Don't skip the secondary fermentor if you are doing a secondary fermentation though.

Where's my quote book?! I need to write down this sage wisdom  ;D

If you were siphoning into a secondary and introduced some air I wouldn't worry too much :)

It's of course a good thing to minimize air into your beer, but I think the core flavor of your beer will remain, with minimal (if any) off flavors.

Cheers!

General Homebrew Discussion / Old Brewing Texts
« on: January 04, 2014, 12:59:36 PM »
Does anybody know of any old brewing texts that are available to the general public? I don't can't read the German language so preferably the texts are translated, but I wont let that stop me :)

Thanks!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What's Brewing this Weekend 1/4/2014?

Made an Irish Red and a white wime before we left on the Christmas break so I'll be transfering/bottling all weekend :)

I know these actually work, but I bought a propane burner shield with the intent of blocking the wind and keeping the flame going...but I bought it two weeks before we moved into our new house where I brew indoors. Yep years of training and experience as a disciplined leader/planner and I can't get over the excitement and compulsion to buy a new shiny toy.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: flavor contribution from dry hops
« on: December 23, 2013, 01:55:07 PM »
Since you aren't conducting any kind of boil to extract the hop oil my understanding is that yes, you are out for the hop aroma and not any hop bitterness. With that said I know a lot of your taste is closely related to smell.  So you may be "tasting" the hops due to the aroma.

Managed to sneak in a last minute Irish Red since we just "happened" to be in the area of my LHBS for some Christmas shopping  ;D

Ya...I failed to buy the supplies for one last brew...thanks for the salt in the wound  :'(

On the upside I have perfect plans for the upcoming year and a great brew schedule!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: First US Trappist Brewery!!!!
« on: December 17, 2013, 08:34:01 AM »
It doesn't necessary guarantee that they will make Belgian-style beers just because they are Trappist. They could just as easily make American styles or German styles or AALs...

Or Black IPA's. But wait, that's blasphemy!

That's funny!!  ;D

I actually didn't think about what they would brew at first. I just assumed they would brew Belgain like beers but since they aren't in Europe I wonder what's on the brew board?!

All Grain Brewing / Re: Single Infusion Mash Time
« on: December 17, 2013, 08:13:12 AM »
I mash for 60 minutes because that's what everybody else does  ???

I've never done Iodine tests or conversion tests...that may be the next project after I get my head around water quality.
