General Homebrew Discussion / Scotch Style Partigyle
« on: November 21, 2009, 06:09:08 PM »
WOW!  What a brew day.  40 lbs. of grains, 27 gallons of water, 4 oz. hops for a 1/3 - 2/3 Partigyle that gave 5 gallons in the fermenter from the first runnings & 10 gallons from the second.  I also tried misting the grains with water about 15 minutes before milling.  I don't know if that had anything to do with overshooting the OG or not but it was the most beautiful crush I've ever had.  The husks remained almost completely intact yet the endosperm was completely exposed and mostly detached.  

The styles were a Scotch Strong Ale and a Scottish Heavy 70/-.  The Strong Scotch Ale OG/SG was 1.142  :o and the 70/- was 1.042.  Measured the grains Friday night and started the strike water at 7:00AM Saturday.  Wrapped up everything at 6:00PM.  I’m pooped!  8)

Finally received the score sheets from the Nebraska State Fair.  Out of 5 entries, one 1st, three 2nd's and one 3rd. 5 for 5!  Ironic part was I was enjoying a 23-Rye IPA when I opened the envelope. It was the 1st Place. 2nd's were a 13B-Sweet Stout, 14A-Classic English IPA and 14C-Imperial Pale.  3rd was a 10C-American Brown.  Floatin’ on cloud nine right now!!! ;D

Kegging and Bottling / Firestone Keg & Plastic Dip Tube

Anyone ever drill out the Gas-In post of a Firestone Keg that had a plastic dip tube and replace it with a stainless steel dip tube?  How did you do it and did it seal okay afterwards?  Thanks!!!
