Beer Recipes / Re: Recommendations for a saison
« on: November 26, 2013, 12:27:02 PM »
Thanks for the tips! I'll definitely brew something tomorrow. I was thinking of using some rye malt, I've never brewed a rye saison before. How much would it be okay to use?

Beer Recipes / Recommendations for a saison
« on: November 25, 2013, 09:03:31 PM »
I'll be leaving town for a week in a couple days, and I have a one week old WY3711 starter in the fridge that I want to use before I go. Unfortunately, I just checked and I only have 2 lbs of 2-Row and no pilsner malt. And There's no LHBS here so I'd need to order by mail. :-[

I do have some other grains I can use, I have some Munich and Vienna (from Weyermann), some wheat and rye malts, flaked wheat, oats and corn, and some 6-row. I also have lots of specialty malts and A LOT of different hops. Any recommendations? Wait until I get back and buy some pilsner malt? :-\

This is for a 5 gallon batch.

I dunno, if I search for "beaver anus" I don't find anything about raspberries...

I really though it was a joke.  :-\

I'd go with the winning the lottery and opening a brewery option.

I did this with Carared and some Caramunich 3. Not exactly red, sunlight helped a lot in this picture.

Beer Travel / Re: Chicago in October?

The HopLeaf was my favorite, the food is great and the beer selection is amazing.

Local Option has a really good beer selection that's always changing, but most of them are above 9% ABV, and its kind of a Rock/Metal atmosphere. They also make their own beer.

The food at Goose Island's brewpub is ok, but their beers are really good, they have some beers in there that you can't find anywhere else.

Monk's pub has a nice belgian beer selection, and the floor is covered with peanut shells, if you have peanuts you have to throw the shells in the floor too.

MapRoom, Hopleaf, Local Option, Haymarket, Revolution Brewing, Monk's Pub, Goosle Island, Bangers & Lace. The craft beer scene is pretty awesome there, those are the best ones I remember.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Does this look like a pellicle?
« on: June 13, 2013, 10:17:21 PM »
Thanks. I usually ferment in buckets so I can't see the krausen, but I had a phenolic infection from a scratched bucket last month and I've been a little paranoid since then. I guess I freaked out because of those big kinda-white bubbles. Good to know it looks normal.

Looks kinda weird to me, but I'm not sure. Its the 5th day of fermentation.

I think that, much like a shark riding on an elephant's back, it is something to watch out for but not necessarily anything to worry about.
Yeah, but what if it was a shark with frickin' lasers?
Then simply watching out may not be enough.  You'd best wear your mirrored clothes to reflect the laser back into the elephant's eye so it goes stampeding off in the wrong direction and tramples the lion with the wolverine on its back.  Then you'll finally be safe.

Thanks for the advice!  :)

Always good info in here  :D

I really like Northern Brewer in my porters. Never made an Imperial though.

Beer Recipes / Re: Good Ale for BMC Drinkers
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:14:21 PM »
I've brewed american wheat beers with tropical hops, like citra, summit or something from NZ, and my BMC friends, or PMC in this case (Pacifico, Modelo, Corona), really liked them. Also wit biers and Hefe Weizens are pretty popular. Some of them actually liked my brown porters and APA's but most of them said they were too bitter.

Here in the Mid-West (USA) the BMC drinkers often consider Pacifico, Modelo and Corona to be too exotic.  Your friends are a few steps closer to real beer than your average Bud-light drinker.   ::)

Hahaha I don't think there's much difference, maybe only in Corona, I think its terrible, I would rather have any BMC than Corona.

Going Pro / Re: Can filler and seamer
« on: May 29, 2013, 06:47:17 PM »
but most people seem to end up with Ball's two-head filler.

Don't you mean Cask?

Economically, a semi-automated canning setup is actually less expensive than bottling, in both capital and per-unit costs. The two Ball units, gently used, sell for about half a minivan.

The only issue with canning is the amount of cans you have to buy.
