i will take balvenie (too many good ones to name) and jameson (reg , 12yr, 18yr, black barrel, gold) most anytime over anything.

Yeah, love the Balvenie ones.

Mmm hmmm, tasty stuff that Doublewood.

I try to use German pils for German, Belgian pils for Belgian, depending on what I have on hand. But having said that, those German and Belgian pils malts are all good to excellent and any would work in a pinch.

+1 - If I end up buying a sack of Pilsner I'd probably buy Best and be fine using it on all my brews. But I generally buy ingredients for just a couple of beers at a time, so it's Best or Weyermann for my German styles and Castle for my Belgian ones.
Same here

We need to all get together, rent a big-ass van. Start with Schmidlin's place in WA, his Sean's pub in CO, Ron's in whats-it (Jersery?) then head south to YH. Who am I forgetting? Oh, Thirtsy Monk's in WI. Maybe stop by and pick up Denny in OR.

I'm ready!

Well hell, if the bus is passing through Oregon put me down for a ticket!

Nice write-up and very cool brewery you've got there Keith! If my Ducks ever fly south again I'll have to make a side trip.  Cheers!

No brewing, it is time it drink the lagers brewed in winter.

German Pils, CAP, and a special lager with American hops (mt. hood, sterling, santium, crystal).

We will also have pretzels, radishes (spiral cut white ones), and obatzda for starters. Later we have an assortment of German wurst and potatoes.

Sounds like a lovely and delicious Sunday Jeff!

No brewing here either, but I do need to clean some kegs, keg some kolsch and assess the progress of a barley wine.

This is a great write up from Kal @ the electric brewery comparing US-05 & 1056.

This might help!

Unlike Kal, I can tell the difference.

I can too...and MUCH prefer what 1056 delivers.

+2.  I'll use S-05 occasionally for short notice brewing, but I can tell the difference.  To me S-05 is slightly more powdery/less flocculant and slightly fruitier than 1056. Not a lot but distinguishable.

EDIT - Having said all that, S-05 makes a perfectly good beer. I just prefer 1056.

+3, US-05 is my backup yeast

I use these:

They are on wheels, they're cheap, and they hold an entire 50# sack of malt.

These are what I use too and love them. Sealed, mobile and as mentioned hold an entire sack of grain.

I'd get a taster of the Sriracha Pilsner at a beer fest. Just sayin'...
I had a Sriracha stout a few months ago that was pretty good.

Equipment and Software / Re: Temp control: Johnson or Ranco?
« on: July 02, 2014, 10:29:36 AM »
Thanks, guys.  I think I'll start mid-high range and see what happens.  Just ordered the Ranco from Amazon.

I doubt you'll regret it Denny.  I have a dual-stage Ranco on my fermentation freezer and use a reptile warming bulb for the winter months when I need it warmer. Has worked great for a couple years now. Have fun!

Yeah, that just seems excessive. Can you double check with your supplier?

The Pub / Re: Tequila
« on: June 27, 2014, 08:50:38 AM »
Aside from bourbon I'm not much of a hard liquor fan. But I do sometimes like tequila. And the only mixed drink I like is margarita, but only with fresh squeezed limes. Not the fake stuff.

One thing I do every year is take some fresh jalapeños from my garden and soak them in a pint of tequila. wait about 72 hours and then make margaritas from that jalapeños soak tequila. Very nice.   

That there sounds damn good Major. We've got 19 varieties of peppers in the garden this year. Thanks for the idea!

I've heard some folks have seen their scores posted on the comp website. I have not. I'm wondering if I'm just still being too impatient or my entries never made it. has anyone else seen their scores posted?
I saw my scores at one point and then they were removed... I think the times they were posted were 'accidental'.
So, we should expect to see them posted at some point?
