I forgot to add isinglass to my last NB order, can I use gelatin in the same manner?

Are these posts out of order?  See the link in the second post  ;)

I was also going to mention the upside down keg thing that Tom brought up.  I haven't tried it but it seems like a great idea.

Got four adults, in this household.  8)

Sorry Weaze, not gonna fly...

(b) The production of beer per household, without payment of tax, for personal or family use may not exceed:
(1) 200 gallons per calendar year if there are two or more adults residing in the household, or
(2) 100 gallons per calendar year if there is only one adult residing in the household.

You got a brewcart that you can wheel around the neighborhood?  8)

I did an ESB that was served in exactly 12 days.  It was a clone of a brewpub beer that was open fermented with ringwood and crash cooled after 7 days.  Came out great!

Narvin, I haven't done a step infusion like this before, but Beersmith says it is possible. I wind up with all the water in the mash tun with a 4 qt/lb water to grain ratio and no sparge, but it can be done.


Good luck ;-)  I've never hit a mash out with a step infusion mash no matter what the calculators say.  Kudos to you if you can!

Neither help nor money will give YOU more time to allocate to brewdays.  I think you just need to tell them that you aren't able to brew enough to supply the whole neighborhood with beer.  Nothing personal to any of them, just the truth.

The only thing I can say is that I doubt you'll be able to do 3 infusions with water and hit your temperatures.  Have you done a step infusion like this before?  In my experience it takes significantly more boiling water to raise temp than the calculators say, after heat losses to the air, stirring, and god knows what.

It sounds like they're all generous people... I would just explain that you're going to run out of beer!  Limits benefit everyone.

Filling growlers without asking is over the line.  Period.  If you have extra, you'll offer; otherwise, no take out beer!

My natural weapon is my biting, sarcastic wit. That, and actual biting.

Hahaha.... hilarious.

What's up with you today, dude?

I was actually not being sarcastic.  Should have perhaps inserted a smiley?

You just seemed cranky. By the way, I'll be staggering around Fell's pt. sometime around memorial day weekend. Let me know if you want to grab a beer.

Yeah, I must need a beer  ;D

I'm always up for a beer as long as I'll be around at the time.  PM me when you get in.

It has the ring of a Jack Handey Deep Thought, too.

I always liked the bumper sticker:

My SUV Can Beat Up Your Hybrid

That's pretty funny.  "I buy lots of gas from terrorist states and have a small *****" just doesn't have the same laugh factor.

Equipment and Software / Re: My pump hates me. What to do?
« on: May 11, 2011, 09:23:54 PM »

I think it does not leak when pumping water or CIP but it leaks with wort of 20 brix (while mashing).

What is your mash tun like?  You don't want to restrict a centrifugal pump on the input side... are you getting enough flow?

Or maybe it's just a piece of crap.

Don't need them, unless you're brewing a girlie beer.

You have strange ideas about "girlie beer".  My wife, a tiny thing, won't touch anything with fruits or spices.  Unless it's got at least 70 IBU, she's not interested.  Be careful when you stereotype.

No sugar means no Belgian beers or a lot of British beers.

I would bet that the majority of fruit beers are consumed by women or guys that act that way. :)

What do guys who act like real guys drink?  Miller Lite?
