The Pub / Re: Epic Rant about 10 Barrel & AB/InBev
« on: December 16, 2014, 10:19:09 PM »
Wow, that article is indeed a rant, and while there is a small part of me that agrees with him, the reality is that in their place I would probably do the same thing. Of course, that quick infusion of cash would go right into another brewery.

This is going to seem petty, and maybe alittle off-topic, but my biggest problem with the whole situation is the name of the brewery.

10 Barrel Brewery? Seriously? To me, that's a total marketing and branding disaster. What happens when you upgrade to a 15 or 30 Barrel system? Can you imagine how many times this conversation takes place on a daily basis?

Customer: "Hey, how are you guys keeping up with capacity with a 10 Barrel brewhouse?"
Tour Guide: "Oh we have a 15 barrel brewhouse now"
Customer: "I thought you were 10 barrel brewery?"
Tour Guide: "we are but we upgraded"
Customer: "so now you're 15 barrel brewery?"
Tour Guide: "no we are still 10 barrel brewery, but we make 15 barrels"

/facepalm

Its like opening up a business named "1 oven bakery" or "3 table restaurant" or "2 truck delivery service"

I'll add that to me biscuit malt is kinda like the flavor of maris otter only intensified. Kinda like melenoidin malt is to Munich.
That's exactly how I think of it:
Biscuit and Victory = amped up MO
Melanoiden and Aromatic = amped up Munich

great, thanks Eric!

but it def tastes like a biscuit vs a cookie then?

I've never used biscuit malt and I was wondering which biscuit it tastes like. In the UK, biscuits are what we call cookies here in the US, but here, biscuits taste like, well, muffins sorta?

I'll assume that the malt originated in Europe, so does it have a cookie-like flavor or more of a KFC biscuit flavor?

Hey guys just joined this forum, I have recently started brewing at home using kits and I have the bug, I would like to find some good starter recipes that allow me to steep my own grain?

Any ideas what I should start with? And any other advice greatly received :-)


Welcome! Lots of great people here, don't be afraid to ask questions, and hide your wallet before you end up with a fermenter bigger than your car.

I have a lower end white one (not sure of the model number) but the bags will lose their seal from time to time.  I've started using mason jars and the jar accessory recently.  I have not had a seal come lose on a jar yet...some of the lids actually take some serious prying to get off.  The smaller pint jars hold about 8 oz of pellet hops.

With all the o2 taken out of the jar do you still need to refrigerate the hops? When I vacuum seal coffee beans I  store it in a cabinet and I've never had a problem with freshness, just curious.

Also, just as a reminder, its a good idea to measure the sugar by weight and not volume.

I really like the way you had them set it up. The only thing I would do different is barn doors. Not sure why, but I love me some barn doors.

I like barn doors too but it just didn't seem to fit with the design of the shed. They usually only put a single door on the front or centered on the side, but I had them put in 6ft double doors on the side so I knew I could move equipment in and out without a problem.

The only thing I don't like about the whole thing is the handle/lock on the door. I will eventually replace it with something more heavy duty and secure.

This is a crappy picture but here's what it looks like from the side:
