General Homebrew Discussion / Re: One heck of a brew day.
« on: June 19, 2012, 02:22:11 PM »
When something like this happens and brewing becomes stressful, it's time to change something in my process for the better or take a break.  Last time this happened I decided to decrease my stress by getting the grains measured out and milled the night before I brew, as well as the water I need for mash and sparge.  It's greatly reduced the amount of stress I have on brew day.
The brew day is much more pleasant if I can set up and prep the night before. With everything in place, all I need to do is strike a match, start the coffee and ease into a great day making great beer. The extra time not only reduces stress and likelyhood of error but it also give more time to really think about your recipe and perhaps make last minute tweaks or corrections.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 2112 fermentation plan

What i guess I wonder is....well....
what if it does NOT hold lager characteristics? Does it then morph to ale characteristics?
And if so, will it still make Beer?
I think you're going to have to be our test pilot regarding this question. Seems like the yeast should produce lager character at ale temps according to what has been discussed.  Regardless, my money says you'll end up with beer. Probably a dern good beer at that. Please do report back with your results.
And congrats on the 2K ;)

The beer I made with 2112 came out pretty darn good.  Fermented at 60 df, I would say produced strong lager characteristics.  It was not like any ale I had brewed before.  I just kegged a Kolsch that was fermented at similar temps and it came out fantastic. Between the two I prefer the kolsch.

Taken from the "Attire" section of the NHC Newbie guide...
Can I wear a kilt?
No, kilts may not be worn. People don’t wear kilts, kilts wear people. If your kilt would like to wear you to the conference, great. There will be many kilts wearing people there, probably a kaftan and a moo-moo, too.

Is this good news or bad news for The Weaze?

Yeast and Fermentation / 007- Seven Day IPA
« on: June 18, 2012, 03:23:26 AM »
I'm wrapping up the Sunday evening before NHC with a glass of my first attempt at an "Express Beer" brewed last Sunday. I made an "Sessionish" IPA with Maris Otter, 2-row pale, CaraPils and Honey Malt. Bittered with Simcoe, Citra and Amarillo for the flavor and aroma charges. Pitched starters of 007 and 1098 to the split 10 gallon batch.
Wow, it's really good. Not crystal clear, but you can tell it will be very soon (no finings).  I kegged the 007 batch today with 2 oz of dryhops; 1 Simcoe, .5 Citra, .5 Amarillo)  and will be bringing it to NHC for club night. Even without the dryhops it has a balanced bitterness and a light bite and the aroma is good. I can't wait to test sample the dryhopped version on Wednesday and share with folks at NHC next weekend.
This will be my first NHC and I'm pretty excited. I'll be pouring for the Oregon Brew Crew from 8:45-9:30 on club night so please do stop by if you can. I'm really looking forward to putting faces to some these avatars I've come to know so well.
Anyway, if you've been holding off on trying the express approach to brewing or you've got an event creeping up faster than you thought you were prepared for. Go forth I say! Drew's article from the Nov/Dec Zymurgy will tell you all you need to know.
