« on: December 09, 2011, 03:52:44 PM »

Ingredients / Wild rice question
« on: November 16, 2011, 09:07:09 AM »
Does anyone know what type of sugars, and the amount, you get from wild rice?  This site says 1.1 gr. of sucrose per 160 gr. of rice, but it also seems to suggest a total of 4 gr. of sugar.  If that's the case, does anyone know what else is in there?

The Pub / Thank you veterans!
« on: November 11, 2011, 08:03:38 AM »
Please take a minute today to reflect on the veterans who have sacrificed so much for all of us.  Without these fine men and women our country might be far different today.  We owe them a debt far greater than we can ever pay.  Hoist a pint and say thanks.

And please, don't degrade this thanks by making this a political conversation.

General Homebrew Discussion / Beer Camping
« on: November 06, 2011, 03:16:32 PM »
I just returned from Sierra Nevada Beer Camp.  It was probably the single best, most fun beer experience I've ever had.  We spent the first day touring the plant and learning about how they do things there.  The second day we brewed 2 10 bbl. batches of our beer, "Alternate Ending" altbier, in the pilot brewhouse.  We used both American and German hops, including a new experimental variety called only #366.  I'll be writing more about it in the next few days, but here are some pics to get you started.

I was sent a sample of Columbia hops in an order I received recently.  I know nothing about them.  Can anybody fill me in?

Ingredients / Looking bad for barley...
« on: October 05, 2011, 05:11:13 PM »
From the American Malting Barley Assoc. production report..

Production is estimated at 155 million bushels, down 8 percent from the August forecast and 14 percent below 2010, and the lowest since 1936. Average yield per acre, at 69.2 bushels, is down 3.9 bushels from the previous year. Producers seeded 2.56 million acres in 2011, down 11 percent from last year. This is the lowest planted acreage on record. Harvested area, at 2.24 million acres, is down 9 percent from 2010, and the lowest level since 1881. Seeded area in North Dakota establishes a record low for the State, while harvested area is the lowest since 1901. In addition, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, South Dakota, and Utah producers set new record lows for seeded acreage, while producers in New York seeded a record-tying low. Record lows for harvested area were set in Michigan and Wisconsin. A record high yield was set in North Carolina, while producers in Arizona reported a record-tying yield.

A great resource has gotten even better with the release of the new Hopunion variety databook.  I haven't figured out how to d/l it yet, but maybe one of you geniuses here can.  It's online at .

The Pub / Goodbye R.E.M.
« on: September 22, 2011, 09:51:56 AM »
After 31 years, R.E.M. is calling it quits.  One of my all time favorite bands.  They changed the shape of the music biz, too.  A lot of what's going on today in the biz wouldn't be happening without their groundbreaking ideas.  Thanks,'s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine....

Ingredients / OH MY GAWD...disgusting...yuck yuck
« on: September 20, 2011, 12:08:03 PM »
So, I'm doing a Zymurgy article and I thought I'd do some research on making hop teas to compare hops.  I've done this before with poor results, but I wanted to quantify things a bit.  Holy s***!  That has got to be some of the most vile, disgusting stuff to ever pass my lips!  3 hours later I can't get the harshness out of my mouth.  Do people actually make this stuff and put it in their beers?  Man, I shudder just thinking about what it tasted like.
