Ingredients / Re: Natural Spring water vs Distilled water

Reading those numbers, I would go with the cheapest water. 11ppm isn't going to make much difference. I would also add a tsp or so of gypsum to the beginning of the boil.


Beer Recipes / Re: Is this a Blond or Saison?

I agree with all of the above.

I think also that brewers friend my have labeled this a saison because of the very low final gravity. AFAIK, blondes usually finish in the 1.010-1.014 range.

Ours are $20/$30. They go to setting up for competitions, paying for food at meetings, and occasionally paying for beer (either as a commercial calibration, or to support the brewery we meet at). If you join after June, we only charge $10. it's pretty simple, and kept it only homebrewers who show up.

your legislative body should have a website where you can search for your local rep.

I'm always "that guy" regardless. I have a reputation to uphold.

The last night of NHC last year was fun. But I had to drive, so I stayed sober.

All Grain Brewing / Re: 100% munich

Never tried all Munich in an APA, but my APA recipe now is usually 80% 2 row, 20% Munich, with a bit of wheat for head retention (honestly, its pretty much superstition). I like how the maltiness works at that level, without the sweetness provided by crystal. 

Events / Re: NHC 2013 Hotel?

yeah, already sold out. When are we going to get the overflow hotel announcement?

You would think the guy would have some coveralls and a classier hat.

I don't think it gets as cold down there, doesn't need the ear flaps  8)

Do the full thing.

Read the first time attendee guide.

Get prepared for lots of beer, and lots of fun.

You won't regret it.

The site says 1pm MST for the conference. 9am EST for the hotel.

In Seattle, brewing in the rain is just called brewing...

I was thinking the same thing.

It made it through the Senate tourism committee as well, so it is on the floor in both houses.

Per Raise Your Pints, the Homebrew Legalization bill has passed the house ways and means committee, and is going to the floor for a vote soon. Good Luck MS, join the rest of the Homebrewing world. We are all rooting for you.

Leos, I need to visit your taproom soon. Need to discuss lager brewing!

Me too. But that is just to drink your beer.

Me too! For both! :)

Give yourself a day or two more and stop by Tribute and a trip to Oso, Redeye and
Bull Falls.

My rough plan is to hit up both Lazy Monk and Tribute when I go out to MN to visit my wife's family.
