All Grain Brewing / Re: first AG questions
« on: January 02, 2013, 07:18:55 AM »
This is the grain bill from the 6 gallon Can you Brew it? version.  Does their grain bill look similar to this, when you adjust it down for 3 gallons? 

11 lbs 1 2.5 oz  Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)  86.9 %
1 lbs 5.8 oz      Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) 10.1 %
6.1 oz             Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)  2.8 %
0.4 oz             Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM) 0.2 %

As far as my mash tun, I do the same as above...dump and rinse.  Maybe I'll take it apart once a year and give it a thorough cleaning ( 72 coleman xtreme rectangular cooler - blue of course  ;) )

Happy New Year!!!

My resolution is to take my work more seriuosly and not spend a lot of time on the brewing forums during working hours...

DAMN!!  Oh well, maybe next year!  8)

I'm brewing a German Pilsner on New Year's Day, using the yeast that is working on my Munich Helles right now.

That is if it stops doing this crap:

We got some earthenware steins from my sister in law.  Got a barley crusher (tm) for my birthday (today).
Happy Birthday!  The BC is an awesome gift...

My wife got me "Beer Lovers New England" by Norman Miller.  Looks like it's going to be a great reference for brewery-hopping this spring and Summer.

She also got me a document box, with hanging files and folders.  I know, not really a brewing present, but she constantly hears me complaining about all the paper in the brewhouse ( i.e. basement ).  Between recipes, water reports, certificates, other misc notes, etc., it's a mess.  Probably going to be one of the more useful "brewing" gifts I got.

Nah...I have a six tap chest freezer kegerator.  I just thought it was funny it is on sale at Home Depot.

You need to add an end square bracket to the image "]"

I copy the link to view it...nice cold break layer.  I do this with lagers and cannot believe how much cold break there is the next day I transfer.  Sometime I have a hard time getting 5.5 gallons transferred even when I've filled my better bottle to almost the top from the kettle.

Can y'all do that to the 49ers next weekend?


No problem.  I'll send Bill and Tom a text right now.  ;D

If they could get the laws fixed, Austin wouldn't be a bad place.  I heard the barbeque and music are good there.

Yeah, I hear they have both kinds...Country and Western  ;D

Grand Rapids beat out several cities for the event, including Austin, Texas, which was knocked out by strict liquor-control laws that prevented further consideration.

Looks like the Texans have some work to do.

I saw this a couple months ago.  The venue actually had it listed on their events page.  I didn't want to be the one to let that cat out... ;D

Looking forward to this one too!

Brewing with Chris White at the White Labs 5,000 Vial Redemption Extravaganza in Norfolk, VA!

I'm only 4985 vials away from this  ;D ( not a lot of place in the Northeast sell WL yeast )

I'm brewing a Munich Helles on Sunday starting at 6am so I can fit it in around other events ( mostly kid related, cub scouts, etc ).

Thankfully the Pats are playing Monday night this week.
