Sure, I'd try it.  My expectations would not be high. Curious.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brewing with Bourbons
« on: August 14, 2012, 07:33:50 AM »
I like to go for an integrated taste, not something that shouts "BOURBON!" at me.

I really think this is the best advice. I had a bourbon porter at NHC this year that shouted "BOURBON!!!!!" at me from 4 feet away. Not a bad bourbon, but not a good bourbon porter. Balance is key.
Ha! I wonder if it was mine? 
Bourbon!  :)

You paid $11.75 for 5 month old yeast?  ???

I know, I know.  It was one of those situations where I have to step it up a couple times and if I didn't get it that day, my schedule would be pushed back.  Trust me, it's not something I do on a regular basis.

No judgement here, we've all been there.  I was just wondering if a supply shop shipped it to you that old.

Great to live near Wyeast, huh?  I often get packs dated justv a day or 2 before I buy them.

Very fortunate indeed, I can often get yeast less than a week "old".  I usually go in with a few in mind and go with what is most fresh.

The Pub / Re: Best Portland neighborhood for breweries/restaurants?
« on: August 13, 2012, 09:49:31 AM »
wait, we are talking about portland OR right?

Once someone chimed in with the SE & NW, I figured it was OR.  I wish people would be specific.

FYI - in Portland, ME - Old Port is the place to be!!  ;)

 ??? I think my response was as specific as the question posed.  Portland is not a big city.  The Willamette river essentially splits downtown into eastside/westside.  Not to be overly general, but you do indeed get different vibes in the NW, NE, SW, SE parts of town if you use Burnside as your North/South division.
Like I mentioned before, if you stay close in (near the river) you can hardly go wrong.  We have more than 40 craft breweries in town.  Personally I don't really have a favorite because I enjoy trying different places. If I had to pick on the spot, I'd say go SE. Check out Hopworks (a bit farther out), The Green Dragon taproom for local and regional variety on tap and Cascade Barrel House if you like sour beers.

Granted it's been a few years since I was there but I remember it ALL being intolerably hipster.

Only as much as EVERYONE in northern California is a herb-growing hippie. ;)

so you are saying that everyone in portland IS a hipster then.  ;D
Touche sir.

I have joined the cult of the blue cooler.
You made the right choice.  Sometimes it's just not worth the effort to try and repair some things.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: First timer here

If you have another fermenter (that isn't you're bottling bucket), get another batch going ASAP. You'll be amazed at how fast that first batch goes.  Congrats!

If you want intolerably hipster, go close in SE.  If you want urban renewal, go NW.  If you have the time, take a couple nights (and a couple cabs) to a few neighborhoods near the river and downtown. Welcome, cheers and have a great time!

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: New Belgium "Shift" (pic)

Great hop flavor/aroma, but nice sessionable strength. Goes down crisp and clean.

+1, this was my impression as well.
