General Homebrew Discussion / Re: On tap for the Super Bowl

Supposedly not "paid", but he is the owner of some distributor ships.  Still a violation to mention an alcoholic beverage by an "active" player, so maybe he will be curing that with a retirement announcement?

As to freebie:

All Grain Brewing / Re: Turbid Mashes

Most of the time it is the combination of the hops, maybe some wheat and likely a quick turn around to packaging that leads to a hazy product for the reasons stated above.  A local Brewer spoke at a club reach session Thursday and noted that by the end of his serving tank, even his wheat beers turned to kristalweizen - he was wondering out loud how he could keep some more haze for a longer period, because his customers think that craft beers should always be hazy....

Avengard Pils was 5.2 at 34C/93F - I was in a hurry, so it was a bit warm still after mashing at 151F for 10 minutes.

I was actually humming that when my wife asked "what song is that?"  Of course I sang the refrain - Beer, beer,beer,beer.  That got a big eye roll .

10 gallons of "It" Helles for a friend's party, plus assorted growlers of Schwarzbier, Irish Red ale and a sour for the adventurous.  Helles should not make it much past halftime.

That is very helpful to know!  Thanks.  I'm going to test my new sack of Avengard Pils tonight if I get a chance.

Roger was funny to listen to - I kept trying to catch up with him in terms of a beer buzz - downed about 6 beers in that interview - he was great and I look forward to trying his beers at some point...

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Ferment Beer 9 Times Faster
« on: February 03, 2016, 10:00:01 PM »
I hope it creates a breakthrough - but I think the Germans have worked the process to a pretty much nth degree....and I bet their new process is not producing "It".

Does it have "It" ?  I am looking for a Helles with that specific profile....

All Grain Brewing / Re: water profile for black lager
« on: February 03, 2016, 09:49:10 PM »
Brew what you like for yourself and guests - there are no rules and a nice roasty lager can be quite flavorful.  But if entering into competition, a significant roast flavor is usually dinged - the Schwarzbier should not be terribly roasty and definitely not acrid...so for me, I get that sweet spot by adding Carafa III at vorlauf.  YMMV.

I just note what I hear at comps while judging....

So 5.4 pH for Avengard - how does that translate to Lovibond for Brunwater?

Did anyone have an issue with Avengard, in terms of lower pH than expected?  I just bought a sack and I guess a mini ash is in order - I'll probably just grind the grains the night befor and add in a little extra to take for the test.  My wife will think I am totally nuts with this one....

In your case I would ask everyone to bear with you as you put business before pleasure and get the format of the club set from an operational perspective and set some goals for the first year and prioritize them.

But encourage fun!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: diacetyl in lagers
« on: January 29, 2016, 04:04:41 PM »
If you want practice tasting diacetyl in a lager, RedHook Pilsner is the biggest D-bomb I've ever had. I get it in most of their beers, but the Pilsner is the worst offender of them all.

How is the even acceptable in ANY commercial brewery?

It is common in Czech Pilsners - the Czech lager strains develop it even after an extended D-rest.  So, it is part of the expected flavor profile.  A few ale styles permit it under BJCP styleguidelines, but even then it is typically not desirable.
