Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bulk lagering and bottle lagering
« on: January 29, 2016, 06:20:50 PM »
In short and IME having lagered in keg, bulk and bottles I personally have noticed any discernable difference. The only thing is if you elect to bottle you will need to begin lagering after they fully carbonate.

Also, for a comp, you would want the beer to be nice and clear, if your beers aren't poured well and sediment in the bottle clouds up the pour you might lose points-maybe an actual judge could chime in on that?

Its not so bad if it happens when you start to pull a pint but really sucks when the pint is close to full and then you get that big blast, screws up the pour AND gives you a bath!

Awesome looking beer and the perspective seems to make you an exceptionally tall individual!

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Does Gelatin Clearing work without adding CO2
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:37:43 PM »
I crash in keg to avoid suck back nowadays , then add gelatin. I don't have any trouble with sediment or floaties. I lose most of the first pint to the sediment, but it's crystal clear and floatie-free after.
+1, works really well

Equipment and Software / Re: Thermowells and temp probes
« on: January 26, 2016, 11:56:19 AM »
I put the sensor underneath an old sponge that I duct tape to the side of my bucket, so that the probe is sandwiched between the sponge and the side of the bucket.

Yep! That's what I do. Took a chunk of foam, cut a groove big enough to fit the probe, and taped it to my conical. I just insert the probe when its time to ferment. I used the aluminum tape and the foam stays put, even when cleaning.
+1, exactly the same set up with an STC-1000, works great. I don't use tape though, I just use a bungee cord wrapped around bucket to hold the foam block in place

Never used 23 and thought I'd give it a try, using it on the hoppy lager half of the batch, we'll see....

Tightened up the crush today and hit ~70% efficiency, crystal clear wort-preboil sample:)

Well its not the weekend but its finally above freezing! 10 gallon batch of Pilsner that will be split. Half with S-23 and half with S-34/70. One half will be my house pilsner and the other will become a dry hopped version.

I'm really enjoying the larger batch size to be able to essentially brew two different beers in one session:)

Yp, it seems like what you are looking for is the over the top hop aroma and flavor typical of most american style pales and ipas which come from the late additions and dry hopping. The bitterness would come from the early boil additions between 60 and 30 minute additions.

I keep planning on brewing up 10 gallons of pilsner and Mother Nature keeps putting me in the deep freeze! Just can't bring myself to deal with the cold right now....getting old

If you are looking for a simply cheap and easy way to label I use the Avery dots, I think 3/4" round and print the info on them. They fit right on the cap

My SN Celebration clone, crystal clear, no gelatin and really tasty!

Edit: took the pic vertically, not sure why the app spotted it sideways...defies all gravity:)
