??? Ok, well.  When I go downtown on Wednesday. I'll let them know "juicy" is theirs.  ;)


No offense intended, Steve. Just being silly. I'm prone to that. ;D

None taken John, that's my natural state as well.
Guess I didn't know this was a thing.

"Juicy".....how the hell did this descriptor come about?  What does it mean?  I hear about a "juicy" aroma, which just seems like a total oxymoron.  I hear a beer described as "juicy"...what, it tastes like say, orange juice?  I think I know what people who use the term are getting at, but it seems so incredibly wrong.  Why is juicy used?  WTF does it mean?

I don't know, I think you're on the right track with the OJ analogy. I was pondering on what kind of aromatic or flavor I could use the term 'juicy' for and El Dorado hops came to mind for me. Big, fruity, "sweet" esters reminiscent of fruit juice could be described as juicy I would say.

It's no more offensive to me than "hoppy" without some context.

Now I'm wondering how an all Maris Otter beer would compare to what I have above...


Do it. I think it'll be what you're after.

Indeed, MO & some Goldings can make a fine SMASH beer.

Beer Recipes / Re: I want to brew an Altbier

This thread has inspired me to brew an alt this morning.  That, and the fact that a guy in the local club gave me a slurry of WY1007.   ;)

Sadly lacking in Spalter hops and Caramunich, this is what I came up with my current inventory

10 gallons, OG ~1.048

20 lbs. Avangard pils
1 lb. Avangard munich
1 lb. Weyermann Caramunich
5 oz. Weyerman chocolate wheat

Mash-in at 154°F for 60 min

2 oz. Halleratuer Mittelfrueh FWH
1 oz. Perle 60 min
0.5 oz. Northern Brewer 60 min
2 oz. Tettnanger 20 min.

Looks tasty to me. The NB is an interesting choice.

I was thinking of combining it with Amarillo, just to spite Jeff.
I think it might be excellent with a big dose of Amarillo. Please report back!
Well played, sir.  ;D

This thread reminds me that I should check in on the Helles I have lagering.

This thread makes me feel bad that I don't currently have a German lager fermenting.  ;)
It makes me happy that I have my very first German Lager approaching doness and already tasting good and looking pretty.

That, is something to be happy about. Congrats!

Ingredients / Re: suitable sub for wild hops

Steve-
Come on up here to Snoqualmie.  There's a farmer's field that straddles the Snoqualmie/North Bend border.  Back in the 1880's and 1890's it used to be one of the biggest hop growing farms in the US. 

Along the sides of the roads surrounding that farm in late August/early September, you can pick all the wild hops that your heart desires.  They literally grow like weeds along the side of the road.

Aside from using improper terminology (vines instead of bines), its a neat little article:

Here's a painting of it:

Very interesting read, thank you for sharing Steve! Seems like a great reason for a road trip.

Man, it sounds like y'all are throwing moderation out the window tonight. And helles can definitely be crushable, Jon. It's daaaaaaangerous!!!

How the hell else would you know its Friday? ;)

I think the great helles thread must've had half of us brewing one. ;D   I have one that is clearing out nicely now. It's tasty. Something about that style when it's good - it's freaking crushable.

same here. I could bounce back and forth between pils, helles and dort all day...the brother and sister (same fam) beers.
I like it when the crazy cousins from Cologne and Dusseldorf crash the party too!

Everything in moderation, including moderation.

That's how I roll.

I've been curious about this hop but haven't tried it yet. The 'blanc' makes me wonder if it will be similar at all to Nelson Sauvin, perhaps less intense. Will be curious to hear your impression.
It has a similar "white wine character" but none of the other stuff that comes with nelson (for better or worse) and no where close to the intensity.
Cool, sounds good! The Hallertau line, for me is really, really hard to beat for lagers.
