The Pub / Best bar in Fort Collins
« on: February 27, 2012, 06:30:04 PM »
So I'm not sure if anybody has been to Fort Collins, Co lately but they have opened a great new pub. It's called The Mayor of Old town, they have 100 bars on tap (constantly changing) and like 20-30 different bottled beers. they have CO, USA, and international beers. Plus the food is awesome and cheap. I highly recommended visiting here when in town (fyi it's about 1hr away from Denver)

Dang, that's killer.  $3.15 a gallon?  Nice.

I'd have to drive a few hours to get over on the western slope for any wineries.  I've not heard of anything like that before, but it may very well be worth looking into.

There are two wineries in Estes Park, that grow some of their own  wine and also ship in form CA or the western slope.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / extract rye ipa
« on: February 21, 2012, 06:46:28 PM »
So I was thinking when i have the time my next beer will be an rye ipa. my question is with an extract batch can use rye grains with light LME or DME? I have seen the new northern brewer rye extract, but i can drive to the LBHS for cheaper than shipping the extract to my house. also with a rye ipa do i need to add more hops?

So i have still not seen a answer that makes sense for what the boxes and colors mean that are located under your nickname and above your profile pic. anybody know what they mean?

So i thought give an update on the yeast situation in my beer. I just pitched one vial (LHBS recommendation) w/o a starter at about 70F. the ambient room is temp is low 60's. it took a couple days but the yeast  was going crazy strong, it has since began to slow down. It looks like it will do the job and make some hopefully good tasting beer.
once again thanks for all the help, advice, and suggestions

Where do you guys source grape juice?
Wine kits at the lhbs?
online somewhere?
I've found 5 gal frozen pails for around $115 -- that seems pricey, maybe not though?

Thanks

There numerous clubs that you can buy-in with and the get fresh grapes from California and the western slope of CO, i would try and find one these clubs. also both Beer at Home (Lakewood and Westminster) and the Brew Hut (near cherry creek reservoir in Aurora)  sell some kits and other ingredients

I looked it up and sandlot brewery (inside Coors Field) makes it. I have been the CF dozen of times and have not been to the sandlot brewery yet. I need to go, i here they make some good beer, but there are so many good breweries in the state (140ish at last count) it's hard to visit all them :)

most snow in February in Colorado on the front range since they have kept records

 ;)

good call, this season seems to be favoring the front range vs the mountains. little strange and annoying but welcomed

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Milk stout recipe
« on: February 17, 2012, 01:20:16 PM »
My tasted pretty darn good, little bitter, but sweet, some coffee and chocolate notes should be better once it's carbonated. however, i was letting my 5yr old cousin help me brew and he added the yeast before i took a OG reading, so i guess i will be using the estimated OG.

The article is so true. but speaking of Coors = piss water, Since i live a mere 15min from the Coors plant i have been "a few" times (followed by Golden City great microbrewery). However, on of the tours there some visitors from the the mid-west and they asked the tour guide if she know any place in town that had good food and served bud light, she quickly stated that the waste water in-front of the building would be a good substitute, everybody laughed. While Coors is no better than bud light, they have a small off shoot craft brewery that makes some damn good beer (winter fest, Colorado native (only sold in CO)
