Equipment and Software / Re: Any hope for a dying chest freezer?
« on: August 25, 2017, 11:56:35 AM »
I think I'm going to be replacing mine soon. In the last couple of weeks it has started making a constant sound like small ocean waves lapping at the beach and can't hold temp below ~58°F. I got it off CL in 2005 , so I guess it's time.

Awakening this thread from the dead, since it will soon be apple harvest time in my neck of the woods. What was the outcome on your cider WOT?

I add honey after flameout and have had good results. Adding after primary fermentation has ended works, too.

Am I the only one who was thinking of the "Comet - it makes you vomit" song?

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Celis Grand Cru
« on: July 05, 2017, 12:57:05 PM »
Celis Grand Cru was one of my favorites back in the 2000's. My parents toured the original brewery in Austin and were impressed. Sadly, Miller bought them and put them out of business.  But there is good new on the horizon!

Ingredients / Re: cocoa nibs
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:54:15 AM »
I have recently been testing a product called Cholaca.  Pure organic cacao nibs emulsified with water  It's packagad sterile so you can add to taste after fermentation.  I found that it's not only delicious, it's way easier to use than nibs.
Denny, where are you getting yours? Their website says Whole Foods but I can't find it at my local WF.  How much in a 5 gal. batch do you reckon? I usually use 6oz./5 gal. of nibs for my Chocolate Milk Stout. I'd like to give this stuff a try.

The Pub / Re: Rebel Brewer Closing Retail and Warehouse
« on: March 21, 2017, 09:11:43 AM »
...For me, having Morebeer open a warehouse on the East Coast made it tough to order from anyone else. That was a savvy business move on their part, and I'm sure that set them apart from the other major online retailers for many homebrewers.
This. When I couldn't get it from my LHBS I used to use NB exclusively. Right before the Inbev deal, I tried Morebeer and have been using them ever since. I can order on a Wednesday and have it here in ATL by Friday. Just yesterday I got a NB catalog in the mail and for the first time ever, I tossed it in the recycling bin without even cracking it open. I try to use my favorite local, Operation Homebrew, as much as possible. But it's a traffic nightmare getting there from my house or from work. 22 miles from work and at least 45 mins. to get there.  >:(

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Want to start lagering
« on: February 10, 2017, 03:15:01 PM »
7-21 days later (when fermentation and any associated cleanup is complete by the yeast), drop the temperature to somewhere between 30-40F for a few weeks.  [/quote]
I like to do a diacetyl rest before I drop the temp. Just raise the fermentation temperature from lager temperatures to ~68-70oF for a couple of days near the end of the fermentation.
