General Homebrew Discussion / How many Military Home Brewers on here?
« on: November 13, 2011, 01:18:14 PM »
It may have been covered in another thread so here it is again.  How many Military Home Brewers are here?  Me,  Air Force stationed in England.  It never hurts to ask so the local community over here can be built up.

North Coast get everything right.  I had the Rasputin for the first time during my visit to the parents in Texas a few weeks ago.  I was put on to it by an English friend who loves it.  It is such a nice slow, stout to drink and I was able to reward him with a bottle brought back to England.

Avery New World Porter is one of a few dryhopped porters that comes to mind - should be good, though 1oz/1gal is pretty aggressive.

I was thinking of going with 1/2 an ounce to give it some kick without it being too much.

  :) Kick it in the name of science. 

I have not dryhopped with Willamette, but I use a couple ounces real late in my porter. 

IMO, I think the "earthy" thing goes well with porter.   Let us know how it works out.  Science has to be shared.  ;)

Oh I shall report back in December with the first taste, err I mean test...

So i am racking my porter to a secondary fermenter tonight. I am putting 4gallons in one fermenter and a separate 1 gallon batch in another.  I am going to dry hop the 1 gallon batch in the name of science.  I plan on using Willamette and no more than an ounce.  The IBUs right now are 25.5 and the projected ABV is 6.3.

Has anyone done this and if so, any comments or thoughts are much appreciated.  If I lose the gallon I am not to unhappy as I will still have 4 gallons in the other container.

This is an issue?  Seriously, this is an issue?  You may need to find a new hobby.

I have the opposite problem.  I have a handful of people who drink almost all of the beer I brew.  I usually get a few of them but I am definitely on the supplier side of things.  I guess the best thing is they ask for seconds so that is good.

I say drink them.  The brewer would hate to find out he has beer out there just going to ****.  Plus, this rings of my past fascination with baseball cards so I would end up looking for a plastic sleeve that would fit a bottle just like people do with signed baseball cards.

The sit-down version of Ms. Pac Man.  You can sit your beer down on it while you play.

And here I was trying not to hijack this thing.  So we were talking blackberries? 

I was thinking of using these for a porter.  With out overpowering the beer, how much would be recommended for a 5 gallon batch?

This can be one of the most consitently good pints in this country as long as it has had time to sit on the stillage.  If it is served to soon it has separate flavours. Time is one to be savoured with this one.

Kegging and Bottling / Does anyone use Growlers to bottle with?

I am looking to use larger vessels for bottling and was wondering if anyone uses growlers?

Not to hijack the thread but will a secondary fermentation make for a clearer beer in the end by removing the heavier sediment?  Just trying to figure a few things out.
