Session IPA = Pale Ale?

I'm unsure of that.  "IPA" generally means lots of hops, lots of bitter.  "Session" generally means low alchohol.

I've "tried" to brew a session IPA.  Came out at 5.5%ABV.  But for me, that IS a session.

OK, the "specialist review" was supposed to be due today, and checking the TTB website, nothing has happened.  I guess this is our first real "delay."

Call, permits on line, I did and it turned out that our file was assigned to some one out on maternity leave! The very helpful person got us a new specialist, got an email by the end of that day from a new specialist! SO CALL TOMORROW! ASAP!

Well, we are now in contact with our specialist, and we had to file a variance request, as our brewery will be on residential property.  Doesn't seem to be a big deal though.  She did indicate that it will be at least a couple weeks yet before she can really dig into our application.

Going Pro / Seattle Brewery is Hiring a Brewer

http://www.washingtonbeerblog.com/help-wanted-seattle-brewery-hiring-brewer/

So, you want to be a brewer? Today we share an opportunity for a home brewer to go pro. In March we reported that Bluebird Microcreamery, a local producer of outstanding ice cream, was adding a brewery to one of its three Seattle locations. Read our original report. The brewery has now been successfully built, test batches have been brewed, and the company is ready to start making beer. Just one problem: they need to hire a brewer.

I liked that one of the "May We Recommend" links to other products at the bottom of the page is:

Quite the range of homebrew equipment, huh?  LOL

All Grain Brewing / Efficiency
« on: June 26, 2012, 08:15:53 AM »
Many folks around all these threads will mention what their efficiency is.  I once remember hearing on a Brewstron episode that to truly measure your efficiency, you had to really know all your grains, and precicely measure your strike and sparge water volumes and such.  I don't remember the exact process. 

Are folks really doing all that when they quote their efficency? 

According to Beersmith, I usually het about 75%.  But I don't think it really all that accurate.

Comments?

Am curious to what peoples' experiences have been using peppers in brewing.  I'm thinking of doing something with chipotles and with Thai chills and would love to hear what people have tried.

For my jalapeno IPA, I add 2 pounds fresh, slices, frozen jalapeno's to the boil with 5 minutes left. 

And by my empty keg at club night last Friday, I would say folks enjoyed it.

Beer Recipes / Re: Avery Maharja Clone questions
« on: June 15, 2012, 09:16:26 AM »
I am looking at brewing a Maharaja clone.  I've seen some recipes with up to 18 lbs 2 row (for +/- five gallons) and some with more like 14-16 lbs 2 row and some DME or corn sugar to add alcohol.  Anyone have some experience on which way they have gone and how it's worked?

Thanks Colin, I know you can brew a good version........

I've served my homebrew (for free) at two local Relay for Life fundraisers, and another one for local scholarships.  They are closed events.  I have no clue as to the legality, but we've never had a problem, and the folks rent a building at the local county fairgrounds.......

I guess not very many people are using this yet.  Maybe after NHC, where I'm sure they will be pusinging it........

Also, hope Blichmann brews a batch with his tower of power.  I missed that last year.

Hundreds of gallons of beer that were set to be poured this weekend at the sixth annual St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival will have to find a new home after the city's excise commissioner ruled Monday that serving it at the festival would be illegal.
