I have frozen wet hops and used them in later brews just fine.  I would use them as is, no worries.

Oh, I forgot my goals, I need to make some different beers and expand my wings a little.  I make about 6 beers all the time and need to play with some other yeasts and styles.
And I need to continue working on my Hoptober clone recipe again.

Only up to the 100 gallon limit, of course. ;)

Begs the question, is it worth getting hitched to bump that limit up to 200 gallons :)

Thats where a blow up doll in bed and a womans coat from a rummage sale hanging on the hook are helpful when the beer police show up..

All Grain Brewing / Re: Flaked maize percentage for CAP
« on: January 06, 2010, 10:28:34 PM »
I use raw #2 field corn for my CAP and usually am in the 25% range.  Cereal mash it and add it to the main mash to come up to sacc temp.  I don't get a corny taste either.  I actually don't want one! :D

Marc, as you know I too have one rolling in this fashion, I have been using my irish red, and have oak chips and dregs from La Roja rolling along in it.  I started it in May 09, and bottled some in Nov. 09, about a gallon and a half.  Added a few more boiled chips and more red into it then.  It is a glass carboy, the only one I have.

The beer is beautiful that I bottled, I just wish I would have remembered to add a little fresh yeast when I bottled...   Its not carbed up properly yet in 2 months..??? :'(

I'm a member and if you go to Midwest Supplies or Northern Brewer, they honor 10% off your bill.  It has paid for itself in my mind many times over with that benefit alone!

I will be brewing an Irish Red on Saturday or Sunday.  I do have bonjour's Amarrilo Pale Ale on deck heving picked up the ingredients yesterday.

Might do a Hoptober clone if I can corral the proper yeast.  And make a starter of course..

Good for you Dimik, you owe me samples young grasshopper. ;) :P

Speaking of samples.  I needs me some.  Nom NOm NOM!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Why the preference for Ball Lock?
« on: November 08, 2009, 08:09:42 PM »
I like pin locks, but I wish they had a pressure relief on the lid like the ball lock units.  So much easier than using a spare gas in on the empty kegs all the time.

The main reason I stated earlier about the commercial breweries is that they cannot remove the lid and the condensation drips back into their kettle.  I understand they may have a fan pulling on the kettle but they don't have a way to remove the lid as we do, and their beers aren't butter bombs.

all the commercial kettles have 10% or less on the vent, so I am not sure that we as homebrewers aren't a little extreme on the lid usage.
