Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP001 fermented at lager temps?
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:44:15 AM »
I haven't tried it with 001, but I've run 1056 at about 55.  with enough healthy yeast and a long fermentation, I had no diacetyl issues.

Be careful recommending spots to buy Denny. I don't know about Oregon, but many states forbid brewers from recommending specific places to purchase their beer. I think California requires recommending a minimum of five places. Three tier related.

Thanks for that warning!  I'll look into it before I make any more recommendations.  Although that recommendation was made as a customer, not as a brewery rep!  ;)

All Grain Brewing / Re: beating a herd of dead dry-hops
« on: April 24, 2015, 08:40:40 AM »
My procedure has evolved to racking to secondary before dry hopping.  Cold crashing before that is something I sometimes do, sometimes don't do.  Can't tell a lot of difference so far.

2 days in and my job titile has been changed from Brewery Ambassador to Field Educator.  I like that a lot better and it's much more descriptive of what I'll be doing.

I picked up a couple bombers to see what you're slinging. I'll report back later.

VT is a special situation for Oakshire since it's so far away.  Apparently a couple guys there wanted to bring it in so Oakshire told 'em sure, but we can't give you any marketing support.  Please let me know how the beer travelled!

I agree completely with which ever side is ultimately proven correct.

Smart man....

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Refractometers in Heat?
« on: April 22, 2015, 12:16:09 PM »
From my experience, ATC is useless when cold. I bring my refractometer inside these days and keep it in my pocket on brew day. Without this, my numbers were all over the place.

Yep, same here.

ATC adjusts for the temp of the refractometer, not the sample.  The sample size is so small that it will cool by itself.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: New recipe
« on: April 22, 2015, 11:13:15 AM »
all that flaked grain with no diastatic malt is going to lend a lot of unconverted starches and not much else. I'd add a lb of pale malt and do a teeny tiny minimash.
If you don't do the minimash, what happens to the unconverted starches?

They make your beer thick and cloudy and provide a food source for possible contamination.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Low OG, First brew
« on: April 22, 2015, 11:12:13 AM »
Your OG was 1.018?  That's almost impossible!  How big a batch was it and how grain did you use?  And not to be insulting, was the grain crushed?

I hope you get some large shoes. A brewery is no place for bare hobbit feet.

Fortunately, most of the time I spend in the brewery it won't be operating!

Events / Re: NHC Thursday night?

I heard Gary glass give an interview saying that the welcome reception will be outdoor with numerous breweries serving kinda festival style and club night will be the same style. Wish I was going.

Wish you were, too.  You'd love it.

Sounds like the best use of black IPA that I've heard yet.

What an awesome position.  And you're the perfect guy for it!  As I recall you were functioning informally in that position last Summer when my wife and I made it down to Eugene.  :)

You guys will have to come back down sometime once the tours start and ride the bus!
