Calories in calories out works great for me. I also do resistance training to stay in shape.

Yeah thats what I was gonna say, its probably not the BEST way to exercise out there, but its better than nothing. If you accepted the 5k challenge go for it, never go looking for excuses not to. However, if you want to lose weight, the most important thing its your diet.

Good luck!

Yeast and Fermentation / Starter
« on: March 28, 2012, 11:45:36 AM »
I'm making a Hefeweizen this saturday, aiming for somewhere around 1.050. I have WLP300, should I make a starter? I've never made one before, I've always used dry yeast, but I guess there's a first time for everything. What should be the volume and gravity of the starter?

If you want "just enough bitterness to be called an American Pale Ale" I'd go for less IBU's.

Beer Recipes / Re: Munich malt question
« on: March 14, 2012, 06:11:23 PM »
Thankyou for the replies. How does this sound? Using odds and ends around the house, 9 lbs Munich, 1/2 pound caramunich, thick mash at around 154. For hops on hand I have mt hood, and chinook. I am thinking chinook? For yeast I have 04 or Nottingham. I am thinking the nottingham will attenuate too much, so S 04?

That sounds good, I'd say forget about styles. If you wanna get a good feel for it just make an all-munich beer and use a clean ale yeast. I'd use mt hood instead of chinook though, chinook has a stronger flavor.

All Grain Brewing / Re: multi-batch, combined fermentation question

I believe its called Drauflassen, and its a common practice in some breweries.

Was it an 11 gallon batch? I never brew batches that big, but 1.5 gallons of water lost in a 75 minutes boil doesn't seem like a lot for a batch that big, maybe you did need a more vigorous boil. That being said, 1.067 isn't that bad, so yeah, RDWHAHB  ;)

Wood/Casks / Re: White oak tequila barrel

Thanks a lot!. No, it hasn't been used. They sell those to people that buy tequila in bulk, in a plastic container so they can store it and age it in there, but it's the same material as the barrels they use in the distillery and it has the same kind of toast. BTW do you know a good Arrogant Bastard clone? I love that beer, but everything about it in their website is CLASSIFIED. :o

I think it is lightly toasted but i'm not quite sure, I'll ask him. Yeah I can probably get Drew a used one, but he'll have to come down to Mazatlan for it ;D

Wood/Casks / White oak tequila barrel
« on: March 02, 2012, 05:37:26 PM »
So I got a 5 gallon white oak barrel from a friend who's family owns a tequila distillery. Any ideas on what I can do with it? ::) It hasn't been used.

Yeah I thought it had something to do with the fermentation. Would dry-hopping in the keg for a week or so hide some of it ? :-\

I pitched when the wort was at about 70 degrees, and fermented it between 65-70. The yeast was US-05.

General Homebrew Discussion / Too much alcohol taste...
« on: February 29, 2012, 05:15:02 PM »
I made an APA about 3 weeks ago, which I was expecting to be at 1.058, but my efficiency was way higher than expected and it came out at 1.068. The final gravity was 1.014 so the ABV is about 7.2%. I kegged it a week ago and tasted it today and it had a very strong alcohol flavor :o. Do you think there was any issue with the fermentation or just too much alcohol for the style?
