The Pub / Re: Growler fills at Delaware liquor stores
« on: March 10, 2013, 01:04:22 AM »
i know of few liquor stores in Colorado that sell beer in growlers, but they don't fill growlers.

Grocery stores can't sell beer, because we have to protect liquor stores. Makes sense that liquor stores wouldn't be able to fill growlers, assuming we care about protecting breweries.
unless it's 3.2% or not "sold in the store" but in side entrance with no entrance into the main store.

i know of few liquor stores in Colorado that sell beer in growlers, but they don't fill growlers. As a liquor store employee i can only see added issues in terms of inconvenience for the store. I like the idea as customer but as someone who on a daily basis sees what non-responsible drinkers consume it seems like this would be a bad idea.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Icelandic lager
« on: March 08, 2013, 01:57:57 AM »
My boss just recently returned from a trip to Iceland. It was interesting to see that the local craft beer movement is just becoming mainstream there. He was nice enough to bring me back a local craft beer
Snorri Islenskt Ol nr 10 is what he brought back. From what i gather and what he was told it is light lager made from all Icelandic ingredients and has thyme in it.
the beer itself was very clean, crisp, and refreshing. the color was very pale similar to Coors, it reminded me a bit like ac golden/coors batch 19. it seemed to over carbonated though, but overall 3.5/5 stars

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: dry yeast for rye ipa
« on: February 28, 2013, 12:29:02 AM »
I'm trying to decide what yeast i want to use for rye ipa.
The standard of US-05, and S-04 are what i normally use and have produced what i'm looking for in my other beers. I have i was thinking that US-56 or T-58 could be interesting. would the t-58 and the rye be too much? I plan on doing an extract with NB rye extract malt, w/specialty grains.

What hops are you planning on using?

The Pub / Re: Why does Budweiser just not get it?
« on: February 23, 2013, 05:54:27 PM »
At the liquor store I work at their new black crown was flying of the shelves for a couple weeks and is already slowing down drastically. With most of the bud (non craft-like) drinkers they just want a light, clean, easy, & cheap beer to get drunk off.
Many off their craft like beers are good but their is no major hurry for bud to overhual their thinking as they (inbev) have a ~70% share of the beer market in the U.S.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: First Lager
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:25:24 PM »
thanks for the suggestions
one my first thoughts was a marzen/Oktoberfest but i didn't want wait for the traditional laggering time

i think i will try the Cali-common or schwarzbier

I not  a huge fan of the American style pale lagers minus actually batch 19 from Coors (and similar pre-prohibition pale lagers

after looking at the style guide for a schwarzbier, sounds like it's similar to New Belgium's 1554? If so that is one of my favorite beers from them.

« on: February 22, 2013, 02:51:11 AM »
So i have brewed a few ales now (10), and recently i received a kegarator but i want to try make some lagers before i start kegging my beer (cheaper than buying the kegs).
what would everyone suggest for a first lager? keeping in mind that i use extract and specialty grains.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brewing water in CO
« on: February 15, 2013, 01:27:55 AM »
There are many people that use the water from Eldorado Natural Springs, that being said i know there laws (especially during droughts that prevent from recycling your own water (showers, rain catcher tubs etc.) and as stated pretty much water in the state is "owned" by someone downstream.

However, according to Aravada Brewing owner, he never has to had any minerals to his water (city not sure about well), unless you are trying to match a specific water chemistry

General Homebrew Discussion / old ale vs winter warmer
« on: November 26, 2012, 07:57:35 PM »
Is there any major difference between these two styles. I'm looking into brewing one or both styles soon.
based on the commercial examples i'm not sure there is much difference
commercial styles old ale-Great Divide-Hibernation, winter warmer- Odell isolation, Anderson valley barney flats. are my basis for my ideas

Kegging and Bottling / Priming cider bottles?
« on: November 21, 2012, 02:29:19 AM »
my question i'm finally going to bottle my cider, i was wondering if priming with maple syrup/brown sugar would add any flavor?
Should I jut use normal priming sugar and CO2 tablets?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: These guys need to clean up their act
« on: November 10, 2012, 12:53:03 AM »
it sounds like bad advice from lawyers who profit from legal action....

I would hope Strange Brewing Company, Denver Colorado will always take the high road, and if they end up having to change their name, I will still visit (and will never be confused, nor will I ever shop at that other place).

For those of you who haven't visited, the brewery is off the beaten path (cheap rent), but so worth the visit for both the beer and the great people behind it.  They have nice food trucks that frequent the place as well.

i agree
