Yeah pretty bummed and I don't even have anything in the fermenter as I had just kegged a hoppy lager that i didn't even get to touch. My wife is awesome though. She said I should brew tomorrow and Tuesday. My brother in law said we can do a double batch at his house so I should be back up pretty quick. I have a sack of pilsner so may go with a pils or smash so I don't have to go to the lhbs if I do brew tomorrow.

I did get the newer bigger fridge converted over and all my faucets and lines cleaned so that's good. It had been way too long.

Woke up to 4 batches of beer on the garage floor. The magnetic tap list white board fell down perfectly and opened all 4 faucets. At least I have an excuse to convert my other fridge and get rid of the current old one...

Most entertaining and strange threads I have seen since being on here. So weird that I don't know how it could be a joke.

Also, random:

I just went up to UPS to check my PO box, and I ordered a bunch of seeds for different plants a little over a month ago, but I totally forgot that I had ordered Hops seeds. So I have some Hops seeds. I have seeds for a ton of other plants, but I have Hops seeds now too.

Are you starting a farm too?

This is honestly the strangest thread I have ever seen. Monk's idea of compiling a bunch of information on a document or on google drive is a pretty good one. No disrespect meant.

Equipment and Software / Re: Pressurized transfers are amazing
« on: June 28, 2017, 05:16:50 PM »
I have been wanting to move in this direction. I have tried a non pressurized transfer to a purged keg with lid on  but liquid ends up leaking out of the keg disconnect due to lack of pressure to seal the connection.

I wonder if this method would work for Speidels and other similar plastic fermenters. Anyone have any experience with that? I assume at a low pressure it would be fine. Don't mean to go off topic...
You mean a closed transfer?

Sure. I like the sound of that.

Ingredients / Re: Pear Saison
« on: June 26, 2017, 07:46:16 AM »
So you pureed the pears yourself before adding them? Three 16 oz cans is more than I expected.

Yes pureed them myself in a blender then added the contents directly to the fermenter. 3 cans in 5 gallons is just what I used as a reference point however it was not a saison. I don't think pear is a very assertive flavor and to me it gave it move of a cider type character. When using fruit I shoot for it as a subtle flavor component without creating what I consider to be a 'fruit beer'.

I have added pureed pears directly to the fermenter after activity slows. The flavor didn't carry through much to the end of the beer but it did give it a cidery (perry) type character. I think for a 5 gallon batch I used three 16 oz cans of pears in juice.

Homebrew Competitions / Re: To enter or not to enter...
« on: June 16, 2017, 12:56:10 PM »
Thanks all.

I think I will go for it in the German Pils category as it truly fits nowhere else. It has a substantial noble hop quality with the citrus component in the back. This is a fresh beer that was packaged a few days ago. I think a month in the fridge will get me closer to the category. I won't have high expectations...

The second beer I am entering fits squarely into amber international lager and has done well there before so not worried about that one.

Brewing a Hoppy Lager/IPL in a couple of hours. Still going back and forth on hops which is agonizing. Either going with Equinox, Centennial, & Comet or something like Equinox, Sterling, & Cascade.

Equinox is going in no matter what so I just need to decide on the others....
