Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Cervesa Recipes?

that's right about goose island. big section in the sunday tribune here about them and some of the other local breweries.
and Tom, yes craptacular in general to many, but i like it,( not as much as vienna, bock, etc, but more than many styles) and if it isn't worthy maybe it should be pulled from the BJCP

AND FWIW I like Mexican beer and can be caught every October on the Gulf of Mexico drinking a corona with a lime. All ya'll can scoff all you want, I don't care.  :)

I have been pondering this thread for several days.  I like my light lager's too, and i am still a big fan of budweiser.  my big problem with them is that they are now not a good ol american company.  I love lots of different beers, some I cant' stand(guinness). I know wine snobs that don't seem to be as snobbish as some beer snobs lately.   So if it is the style people don't like, fine, but why bash it so badly.  If goose island, two brother's or great lakes made a beer similar to busch would it now be a good craft beer?

watch the temperature of your grain prior to dough in.  not that you need to measure it, but if you sometimes have the grain in the house over night and sometimes take it out of the refridgerator just before that can be a 20 plus degree difference and your strike water can lose heat a bit faster than you excpect

i was recovering from a torn acl (thanks to my 6-6 son who was our high school varsity 215 pounder) and started watching all the cooking shows when i was laying on the couch.  really enjoyed some of guy's stuff more so than most of them.

That will work as well as those magnetic bracelets you see on TV :)

Notice the two microscope pictures are identical, just using a different filter.  Good stuff ;D
but dr. could i please have a prescription for that new magnetic ring? i am sure it will help me lose weight, control my diabetes, lower my blood pressure, reduce my claudication and help my edectile dysfunction. (Dr. butcher could help that part)

Ingredients / Re: Melinoidan Malt vs Munich 10L

i dont't think i would worry about it and not put any melainoidan in it. and i wouldn't worry about the lack of decoction much either.

speaking of diamonds are forever, there is a scene in vegas where he is driving a red mach 1 through a parking lot.  he goes between two buildings with the driver side wheels in the air.  he comes out with the passenger wheels in the air. now that is bad ass.   also in thunderball (i think) there is an underwater fight scene.  he gets his blue goggles pulled from his face. he reaches down and grabs a black one off some dead floater.  it instantly turns blue again. 

okay so it was really a remake of thunderball
i agree george lazenby was very good but at that time no one wanted the "tortured soul" bond.  now it plays very well and i think craig has been very good.
oh and broccoli/ian fleming also gave us chitty chitty bang bang.  (of which i am a huge fan)

i still don't like the bond flick "never say never again"  it was like watching sean connory remaking his thunderball  movie.  nearly turned me off of all his other work.  though barbara carrera was easy on the eye

if you ever tapped a keg for a party and then tried to finish it the next night, that is the taste (not tapped with  co2 but with the old air hand pumps.  to me it is just a stale taste.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Is a refractometer worth the $$?
« on: March 30, 2011, 09:09:08 AM »

i ran your numbers through an app i have on my i phone and came up with similar numbers you ended up with on your calcs (1020, and 1019) respectively.  very simple to do.  i have not gone to a refractometer yet but now that i am down sized to small batches i may.  (though thinking of stepping back up to 2-2.5g).  the app i think was free, maybe 99cents. don't know but i am kind of cheap.

if as sean says the higher gravity the correlation is off by just a bit as you experiment (or i do if i am not lazy) we could probably just a secondary correction factor for gravity over 1090 or so..

i tend to do all my stuff by hand. i have been playing with some things that help with recipe design.   brew pal for my iphone. also have been playing with brewsmarts on line and iphone link.  i like the tastybrew web site and the web site. nothing gives me a good print out with everything i like so i will print something then mark it up withmy own notes.

i can tell you that risk factors are risk factors but genetics plays some role. even more than what people eat it is how much.  same with sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure issues. 80-90 percent of my patients would be off meds (and i would be even more broke) if their weight was appropriate

My brother calls this "drunk toe".  He calls me every now and then for a prescription. For rare cases i usually will prescribe indomethacin 50mg three times a day or colchicine 0.6mg every 6 hours for a few days.  if you get it often (read poor bastard) i use allopurinol 300mg daily.  there is also a new med out (gets advertised a lot) called uloric.  fortunately my brother was able to alter his diet and stop the attacks without stopping beer. ;D
