Can you attach a ball valve directly to the outlet port threads or should it be a minimum distance from the valve?

This reply is pure speculation, but I wonder if it has to do with how much protein is being dropped out & turned into the break.Good speculation. IIRC he did say something about it causing excessive hot break.
A thinner, less proteinaceous (sp?) beer will likely have less head retention...No?
Regarding the thinner/less proteinaceous beer having less retention, I'm not so sure. The classic head retention example frequently cited is Duvel...tons and tons of head that lasts. It has lots of alcohol and a low FG and I assume it's made mostly with continental pils and lots of sugar; which I wouldn't expect to render a high protein beer.
This one was never one of my favorites. Despite the blending, it seems to lack the complexity of a simpler Trappist dubbed. I also don't think it ages very well... the year prominently displayed on the labeling seems to encourage vertical tastings that always disappoint.
The brewery is fun to visit, however.
Silly liquid yeast? Does it have a yeast strain number? (just kidding)
Isn't the date stamped on the liquid brewing yeast package the packaging date?
Bread yeast has an expiration date on the package. The 2# package of Red Star Bakers Yeast's expiration date is usually two years after the packaging date.
When my Siebel class visited the Monastery, we got several cases for the drive back to Munich. Good times on that bus... Orval is one of the true world classics to me, and I've never had a beer in its "style" that matched it. Pretty much got the whole recipe and process from Jean Marie Roc (sp?) when I was at the brewery so I'm going to attempt a clone sometime in the future. They definitely have some quirky processes that go into it. Definitely one of the most fascinating beers in the world.Brew Like a Monk has a lot of details about how Orval is brewed. Anything additional you'd like to add would be very welcome, of course.
Really nice. Love the clean look, everything where it needs to be. I'm gonna burn out my 18V cordless soon if I don't do something similar. Just curious, what was the total bill for everything?
What did you use for the bracket to mount the motor?
