My stomach is my secondary. My bladder is my tertiary.

If you use the Alton Brown receipe and cannot get White Lily flour where you live, I strongly suggest using a 50/50 mix of cake flour and AP flour.

Keep this thread updated, as this sounds like something similar to what I'd like to build!

Four years ago I used minute rice in a cream ale and it was nice.  It was 2 lbs of flaked corn, 1 lb of the rice and 3/4 lb. of orange blossom honey with some 2-row and Pils malt.  Mashed at 152oF and used WLP029 at 66oF.  It was very hot that summer and this was perfect for the hot weather.  If I used WLP007, I'd ferment as cool as I could - around 62oF-63oF.

I love this yeast, too.  I've done a TTL clone a couple of times now and the last 10 gal. batch I did I split b/w 1469 and Thames Valley 1275 and preferred the 1469.  It gave the beer what I called a "juicier" hop flavor, like the citrusy little explosion you get with a fresh stick of Juicy Fruit gum.   Loved it.

I have seen the hop bags float! ...
I weigh them for the same reason.  Plus, I want to get that aroma infused into my beer as soon as possible.  Since the beer at the bottom gets pulled from a keg first, that's where I want those hops to be! ;)

Haven't watched it, but listened to the podcast on the way to work this AM and really enjoyed it.  Great job Danny & Gordon!  The BeerSmith podcasts are really well done, IMO.

... I drew up a pretty darn close clone a few years back if anyone is interested. ...
One of my favorites, too.  It might have been one of the very first milk stouts I ever tried.  Yes, I'd be interested in your recipe!  ;D

I've been liking the the passion fruit/Citra hops a lot lately myself.  But variety is the spice hops of life.

... they did release a dunkelweizen this fall IIRC - one of the Beer Lover's Choice - sure they didn't just mix that up there?...
No, this was on tap and I saw the O'fest tap handle the bartender poured it from.  If it was their DW, it was pretty lackluster.

I look forward to trying the SAOF each year.   Three weeks ago or so I stopped at BWW and ordered some wings to go for the family.  I had some time to kill while they whipped up the order, so off to the bar I went.  They had just put a keg of SAOF on tap that day, so I order one.  The keg lines must've needed a cleaning because when the glass arrived it was murky and tasted like a not very good dunkelweizen.  Damn!  I sent it back.  So far, I haven't tried the 2011 version. :(

I know this adds nothing to the conversation.  Just thought I'd share. ;D
