The Pub / Re: bridge collapse

Red I'm glad you brought up the report card.  Its staggering how poor our infrastructure as a whole is.  From my personal experience having worked as a civil engineering for 8 years and specifically on bridges for half of that time deficient bridges are all to common.  Good thing their were no fatalities.

I dont think their is going to be much color change. Just thinking assuming a quarter gallon of 17 SRM slurry into 5 gallons on fresh wort at 4.5 SRM yields a net 5.0 SRM beer. Maybe I'm thinking too simplistic  :-\

Brewing up an standard Bitter on Monday. Fermenting half with WLP002 and the other half with cultured dregs from a few bottles of Jolly Pumpkin ESBam.

I am also pretty sure the Maine Ale & Libation Tasters would host a style.

Funny and guilty.

My favorite was "Whoa that's hideously infected... unless it's a lambic in which case it's awesome!"

This sounds like a fun idea.  Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks Geoff! Worked perfectly once I figured out the magic eye test.

Even with all the registration issues, I like the online system.  I might be in the minority on this but I don't remember being able to see my scores before receiving the scoresheets (still no sheets from NYC).

I'm in the same boat as the OP (Recognized with 1 pt).  I tried to register with no luck.  Is it to late to volunteer?  I was hoping to steward at the very least.

Equipment and Software / Re: Monitoring Keg Levels

My fiance has been trying to kick a keg of APA for like two weeks now. He's been drinking about 3 glasses a night every other night and can't kick it.

The snarkiness in me is screaming Get a Bigger Glass  ;D At 3 pints a night, it should be gone after about 2 weeks. 

As for checking levels.  I do the lift and/or tip method too.

My club is brewing 60 gallons for a Flanders Red that is to go in our club oak barrel.

Not sure if your looking to stick with dry yeast but if you are, I like Nottingham by Danstar.

I agree with Major on the carapil and additions.  Since you have so many additions I would suggest a neutral yeast like US-05 and save the 068 for something where you really can enjoy the phenols it produces...
Just my 0.02.  Let us know how it turns out.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Using maple sap in beer
« on: March 22, 2013, 01:42:17 PM »
I've made a number of batches with both syrup and all sap brew liquor substitution.  I've never tested the pH or composition but then again I'm usually making a brown or porter and I have more to hid behind.

If I were going to make a pils with the sap the "water" profile would be more important for obvious reasons.

IMO I prefer the sap as it seems to be more woody and the syrup tends to make the batch sweeter and for lack of a better work syrupy... ::)
