There's a Hofbrauhaus in Cleveland?  Dang.

Yes there is, and Columbus. Been to the one in Pittsburg.

There are also Export strength Helles, but those are only a little stronger, say 1.056 OG vs 1.048.
And its a far more enjoyable style in my opinion

I believe Munich Helles exists for two reasons. 1. Mandatory liter while visiting Munich.  2. As a challenge for brewers, a style to hone your skills on.

3. THE Pilsner malt showcase.

I'll be in Munich in 2 months, any particular place to visit?

Did you drink any kellerbier or Zwickelbier? One of my fav styles!

Hopefully Jeff will chime in, he's spent a lot of time in Germany.

I just visited for my first time last fall, if you're a first timer I would say you should definitely stop by the Hofbrauhaus in the city center. Very historic and awe inspiring, at least I found it to be. The beer aint bad either. Pick up a copy of the Beer Drinker's Guide to Munich.

Obviously you are unable to grasp my long term plan, so let me spell it out for you:
1. Dither endlessly about recipes.
2. Brew beers in 6 days.
3. Achieve world dominance.

I knew it! ;)

No, it's Drew's technique. Either it works our it doesn't. If it works I'll be a hero and if doesn't we'll laugh at those stupid Americans.


That or you could start brewing beers more than a week out .   ;)

The road is long, Grasshopper.

I'm considering switching to nat. gas as we have it at the house but haven't thought to use it for brewing.

I've heard it's way cheaper (not sure what it would cost to get a plumber to hook up a QD). Perhaps I can do this myself.

Anyone made the switch? Any noticeable difference in getting your water up to temp?

Do it! Have a plumber install a (lockable, so curious kids don't blow your house up) shut off valve and a QD for you. Water boils just as fast and it's wonderful to not have to worry/gamble with partially full propane tanks.

Out of curiosity what type of line do you run from your valve to the burner? In my case, I think it would be at least a 10' run from the nearest possible valve to where I set my burner up.

I apologize, I don't know the technical term for the type of hose I have. But, it is ~15',flexible, 3/4", insulated, reinforced NG line for outdoor grills.  Check with a high end gas grill dealer and they should be able to point you toward the right product and folks that can get the plumbing set up safely for you.

Should have said my 3/4" line supplies NG to three wok burners. I can easily run two at a time.

I always started the siphon by filling the line with water and draining it.  A total PITA.

Those were the days! Man I hated that.

Though I need to revise my thinking on lagers and bitter at least partially with the nobles.
