General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brew ruined??? Vodka drip in wort....

Just remember, it was less than an ounce of vodka.  An ounce of 40% ABV vodka diluted in 5 gallons of liquid will increase the alcohol of the liquid by about 0.06%.

And finally, Tom shows up with the math I was too lazy to do. Thanks Tom!  ;D

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: No lager activity
« on: January 21, 2013, 02:54:06 PM »
Wow.....!.....It's fermenting.  It's not mold.  Now there is a fine layer of krausen...."Never give in" were the words of Winston Churchill during the German air invasion of England.....I must say I'm really suprised.  I had given up......Would you guys drop the temperature back closer to 50, or just leave it where it's at and do a diacetyl rest at the end?  It's around 53 now as I raised it to get the yeast going

If it's starting to ferment, leave it be!  Enough messing with this beer!   :D

The Pub / Re: The OFFICIAL AHA 4M's NFL BULL SH$%^&TER'S THREAD!

As a season ticket holder for the Seahawks, I know that we don't pump in noise. 3/4 of the noise is just straight up loud and disciplined fans. The other 1/4 is the fact that the stadium design focuses fan noise down on the field (to make up for the lack of a roof). We are LOUD. That is the reason the Seahawks have the best Home Field advantage in the NFL.

I think 3rd edition is also "New" but I don't have the book near to confirm.

IIRC, Charlie talks about that in NCJOHB.

That Acronym took me a while, Denny.

Love google.  :)

NCJOHB - New Complete Joy of Home Brewing

I was going to let everyone else figure it out on their own. :D

There is absolutely nothing about the 12th Man that is cheating, unless you consider it cheating that we love our team more than you guys.

iirc, I think the people with banquet tickets had a small Fork and Knife in the corner of their nametag. Don't quote me on it though.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Temp Change After Initial Fermintation
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:49:05 PM »
The most important time for temp control is the first 72-96 hours. However, I would not move the fermenter to a place that gets much colder than 60 (for ales) until the beer is completely finished. If it gets too cool, the yeast may drop out early and not finish fermenting/clean up.

Overall though, RDWHAHB.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Peach Wheat
« on: January 20, 2013, 10:42:55 PM »
+1 to the above.

I would recommend using apricot, or doing that amount of peaches in 2 gallons.

The only peach beers I have had that I really tasted the peaches were sours.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Added yeast at bottling/Now Diacetyl present
« on: January 20, 2013, 04:03:27 PM »
Diacetyl should age out in the bottles. I would give it a week or 2 more and then try it again. I have had a bit of diacetyl in some of my beers, and it always ages out. RDWHAHB.

The reason many people use vodka in their airlocks (including me) is because vodka is basically flavorless, and the alcohol will kill bacteria or wild yeast if they fall in. Once the vodka has been diluted (3/4 oz in 5 gal) that far, there isn't enough alcohol to kill the yeast. RDWHAHB. If there is some problem with your yeast not starting, it won't be because of the vodka.

I am aware this won't surprise many of you who frequent the room, but I am in a hotel again, drinking 10 Barrel's ISA, and eating pizza. I am also chatting.
