The Pub / Re: Sam Adams Cans
« on: May 03, 2013, 02:18:30 PM »
If a beer I really want is only offered in a can, I'll drink it - after first pouring it into a glass.  But I try to avoid cans only because of the BPA lining issue. (And I still have my beer can collection from the 1970s!)  I know BPA-free beer cans will come sooner or later.

Beer Recipes / Re: Strawberry Hefeweizen Recipe- Input Please

Looks good to me.  Everything I've ever been told or read regarding the addition of strawberries advised to use a LOT of them.

Resurrecting a really old thread here, but I'm wondering if anyone who said they were going to do a side by side test of one bottle conditioned and another force carbed beer actually did it.  If so, what were your observations?  I'm grappling with this myself right now.

Brewed on the two different systems?

I was just listening to a podcast that mentioned that Bud uses ~30% rice.  Maybe that and 6-row?

It has really begun to take off in the last year here in Georgia.

Holy cannoli, that looks like it WOULD be fun!

Doing a Learn to Homebrew Day event at Summits Wayside Tavern in Woodstock, GA and will be brewing a Smoked Porter (the website states an ordinary bitter, but I changed my mind). I'll get started around noon.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sweetwater Motor Boat Ale

Since moving to the Atlanta area one year ago, I've found 420 to be my go-to in most places that have nothing but "BMC, BMC lite... oh... and 420". Exodus is a great Porter and I look forward to Happy Ending Imp Stout in a few weeks.  But I've always passed up the Motor Boat for some unknown reason.  I'll not pass it up next time!

If you get a chance, try the newly released LowRYEder IPA.  I picked up a sixer this weekend and loved it. 25% rye malt and Mt. Hood & Centennial hops.  Lovely.

It won't fly.  In the 1990s Lion Nathan brewery in Australia produced a Duff beer and Fox took them to court there.  The product was ordered to be pulled from store shelves and destroyed.  And Lion did not use the Simpsons Duff Beer logo. The cans became big collector's items.  Same thing happened in New Zealand.

Ingredients / Re: Columbus hop / funk
« on: August 21, 2012, 07:30:31 AM »
Being a commodity hop, I find that it varies widely from supplier to supplier. And Columbus is especially prone to powdery mildew. I have heard a couple of pro brewerers state that they believe (their words, not mine) that we may see CTZ go away in the next decade because of it's susceptibility.

I have never brewed one, but had a very tasty one where the hombrewer added one habanero in a secondary fermenter for about a week.  He removed the seeds and most of the "ribs".

All Grain Brewing / Re: Skimming foam
« on: July 24, 2012, 07:54:33 AM »
I used to skim when I first moved to all grain brewing.  Then, after the first six batches or so, I just stopped for no particular reason.  I couldn't tell any difference either way.  As was metioned earlier, I keep a spray bottle nearby, just in case a boil over breaks out.
