Kegging and Bottling / Re: Options for corked bottles
« on: December 22, 2011, 03:37:15 PM »
Okay I bought wire ties and some plastic\real crok hybrid things. We will see how it works. It seemed to have tight fit when I brought the bottle to the store. I will try just a couple with this batch and see how it goes.

I think a big part of it is a regional taste difference. To me Glacial Trail is pretty weak as far as the hop profile and aroma. In Seattle we like our hops present and starring.

A friend gave me a bunch of chimay style bottles that were corked origionally. I do not want buy a corker. Guy at my brew store has some plastic champagne stoppers and wire cages he said might work. What do you all think. Can I use these?

So I have been reading a bunch of posts from another forum about not ever racking to a second fermentor. They claim to get the best beer when they leave it in primary for a month and then bottle. They are talking about flavor and clarity. I was going to rack to a Carboy in a few days but not sure. They had some good arguments. Thoughts?

New Glarus is in Wisconsin. They are an okay brewery. I think most of their brews are overly sweet and unbalanced. They do not have a good IPA that I have found yet. Wisconsin people in general seem to be adverse to any hop flavor.

Been to few of those, but of course, I feel like they miss a few from the country's second largest city!

East Coast bias was there.  Nothing from SD or Seattle?
Naked City from Seattle was there.  It's a really good place.  I would certainly put it on a list of the best beer bars in Seattle, but I'm not sure it would be my #1.  I hope Don isn't reading this. :)

Don is a great guy but I think he would probably have a hard time not putting Uber up there.

The best beer bar on the planet is a tiny little place in Seattle WA. Uber Tav. Sells nothing but beer. I have had multiple beers that were the only keg of that beer in america. Most ecclectic and unique and educated and everchanging taps you will ever find. Great bartenders and cool people. I would travel from anywhere in the world just to drink at Uber for a week.

Uber is only a few blocks from Naked City and far superior. I lived in the neighborhood when Naked City opened. Actually that neighborhood has about 8 tremendous bars. The best beer neighborhood I have ever been in. It was hard to move.
