Keg Oktoberfest and brew Doppelbock.  Maybe bottle the Flander red that I didn't get to last weekend.
Just curious, how long did you stash-away your Flanders for souring and if you used Roeselare?

I am also chief bottle washer and I have been known to clean and unclog the toilette, too. :D

Poomaster? ::)
Now that was adolescent.

Ingredients / Re: IPA made with home grown hops
« on: September 12, 2012, 08:42:19 AM »
If these are first year hops, I would be careful.  First year hops are different than normal hops.

Can you  elaborate on why first year hops are different?

When do hops become "normal"?  More information please.

Of course, when I got home yesterday there was the email from AHA letting me know the IPA books would be shipping soon.

Probably so, I had not heard anything for some time so just wanted to check with AHA'ers that got in on the early order discount.

I just put mine on a couple old door screens between a pair of sawhorse out in the garage for 3-4 days.  Nice gentle drying.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Cleaning lines

Absolutely, take some of the money you saved on your score and invest in new lines and fresh gaskets all around.  Don't even bother with the old stuff.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: When to Start My Starter
« on: September 10, 2012, 10:03:34 AM »
Cold crashing your starter settles the yeast down so you can decant off the starter beer without losing a significant amount of yeast prior to pitching. Lots of folks don't want the starter beer to be pitched into their fresh wort.  I'm one of those folks.

While I'm not afraid of caustic, I've never used it for cleaning.
How about a simple how to?  What chemical, how much/strong, temps, how long?

Thanks

Five-Star, the makers of Star-San makes a caustic line & tank cleaner that should do the trick. I believe the recommended application is about an ounce per gallon, at "room" temperature for 5 minutes. Use long heavy "brewers" gloves and eye-protection, particularly if you plan on reaching into and scrubbing kegs with a caustic solution.  You do NOT want caustic solution to come into  contact with any part of your person.

  I usually grind my roasted malts for color in a coffee grinder if you have it available.  Otherwise, a grain mill will work just find.

Could you expand on this please?  Are you saying that you have a grain mill but you prefer to grind your color malts in a coffee grinder?  No astringency issues with this technique?
