General Homebrew Discussion / Am I being too picky?
« on: April 28, 2013, 05:54:56 PM »
I brewed a 12 gallon batch of Kolsch today.  I'm not used to my new 20 gallon kettle, so I had more boil-off than expected.  My O.G. is 1.060 rather than the 1.050 I was shooting for.  Do I dilute the wort down with some water to get a lower gravity for what I want to be a session beer, or should I RDWHAHB?

Beer Recipes / APA w/Galaxy and ?
« on: April 05, 2013, 11:53:25 AM »
I usually brew my rye APA heavily late hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe.  I'm planning on a different twist with some lots of late Galaxy hops instead.  I wanted to mix the Galaxy with another hop.  I thought of doing Citra for a kind of "2 hemisphere" APA, but I'm worried about the Citra overpowering the Galaxy.  If I go with a 1:2 (or even a 1:3) ratio of Citra/Galaxy, do you think that balance would work.  I'm open to another hop besides Citra, too.

Equipment and Software / Dry hopping in a keg
« on: February 26, 2013, 04:44:15 PM »
Has anyone ever dry hoped in a keg?  I like the idea that I can keep the beer away from oxygen.  (I pressurized the keg to 10 psi)  The hops are in a bag weighted with aquarium glass that's tied on a string to the keg lid.  The only problem I see is that I a hard time getting 2 oz. of whole hops in the keg.  My pale ales and IPA's are at least 4 oz. dry hops.

Events / Keynote speaker for NHC?
« on: February 22, 2013, 03:47:04 PM »
I'm hoping the keynote speaker for this year's NHC is Dick Yuengling.  Yeah, they're not a craft brewery (the lager is good w/hot wings), but they're the oldest American brewery (since 1829) and (I think) the largest family owned family.  Yuengling is synonimous with PA.  He's an excellent speaker, to boot.  Just my two cents.

Homebrew Clubs / Club Membership Cards
« on: February 18, 2013, 04:17:11 AM »
Does anyone know of a source that would print a club membership card?  It doesn't have to be plastic, but something on the line of the AHA membership card that would have the members name and a date on it.  We're hoping to arrange discounts at several LHBS's and beer distributors where members could show their card to get the discount.

« on: July 02, 2012, 01:55:54 PM »
Has any word leaked about what hotel will be hosting the 2013 NHC?  Even though I can't make reservations for months, I'm dying to scout out ther area.

Questions about the forum? / An avatar
« on: August 17, 2010, 08:53:06 AM »
I looked up this topic and followed the instructions for an avatar.   Evidently, that was my first mistake.  We have the option of taking one from either photobucket, etc.. or uploading one ourselves, right.  I go to profile, then modify profile, then forum profile info.  I then clicked the box for upload my own and selected a file.  I hit the update at the bottom of the page and nothing happened.  Does file size matter?  This file is about 2.5 MB.  I can scale it back it need be.  Thanks in advance.
