Commercial Beer Reviews / Alternate Ending release 2/22 in Eugene
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:15:47 AM »
If anyone out there happens to be in Eugene this Wed., 2/22, please drop by the Bier Stein (345 East 11th Avenue) and try the Beer I got to help brew at Beer Camp.  The tapping is at 4 PM and it's a fundraiser for our local food bank, FOOD for Lane County.  If we sell all 3 kegs, we'll provide 5400 meals!

Local homebrewer Denny Conn is turning his camp experience into a benefit for FOOD For Lane County.   One of a select few to attend Sierra Nevada Brewing’s “Beer Camp” last November, Conn was able to participate in the brewing of a 20 barrel batch of beer.  The result is an Americanized version of the German alt bier style.  Camp participants are able to share in the results of their brewing experiences and Conn chose one of his favorite charities to benefit.

“Alternate Ending” will be on tap at The Bier Stein beginning February 22nd until all three of Conn’s kegs are sold. Because of Conn’s and The Bier Stein’s generosity, all proceeds from the special brew will be donated to FFLC. The specialty beer will be $5.00 per pint, which means each pint sold will provide the equivalent of 15 meals! 

During the kick-off event there will also be drawings for Sierra Nevada Brewing merchandise, along with FFLC barrels to collect food donations.

My lovely wife gave me an iPad for my birthday.  I've found lots of timewasters for it, but I'd like some that relate to beer and/or homebrewing.  Anybody have suggestions for me?

General Homebrew Discussion / A new way of thinking of the BU:GU ratio
« on: January 15, 2012, 11:15:09 AM »
I was recently sent an email from Ryan Shwayder, who has kinda reconceptualized the way he thinks of the BU:GU ratio.  He calls his concept the "Relative Bitterness Ratio".  Basically, the big change it to take the attenuation of the beer into consideration.  His way of thinking is that the higher the attenuation of the beer, the more the blance will veer towards bitterness, so he's come up with a formula to account for that.  I'm hoping. that we can start a discussion about the concept and its applicability.  Part of the email I received from him reads...

"The short version is that I feel like BU:GU (Bitterness Ratio) doesn't consider something that is easily quantifiable; attenuation.  I did a lot of work coming up with a good formula to adjust BU:GU based on your beer's apparent attenuation relative to all other beers (in the BCJP style guidelines), and finally came up with something worth sharing.  You can find all the pertinent information linked here:"

I've sent him a link to this discussion so he can join in, too.  So, what do you guys think?  I'm gonna withhold some of my own comments until we get a discussion going.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Atomium Grand Cru
« on: January 07, 2012, 09:25:35 AM »
Recently ran across a beer I'd never seen before, Atomium Premier Grand Cru .  I loved it.  The yeast character reminded me a bit of Ardennes yeast, but not quite as tart.  It's made with Barley, spelt, maize, wheat, buckwheat and rye as well as Curacao orange zest and coriander.  Spalt and Saaz hops.  I highly recommend giving it a try if you run across it.
