The Pub / Hop Sink

I mentioned in another thread that not only is my wife highly supportive of my brewing, when we decided to remodel our bathroom she had a custom fused glass sink made, with glass representaions of hop leaves and cones imbedded in it.  Here are some pics of it (not installed yet)....

The Pub / Monks in New Mexico Build Brewery
« on: November 12, 2010, 09:11:19 AM »
Monks at Monastery of Christ in the Desert in New Mexico have begun
construction of a building that will house a small brewery. The monks
currently have Monks' Ale and Monks' Wit made under contract at Sierra Blanca
Brewing. Sierra Blanca will continue to make those beers for wider
distribution. Although Brad Kraus, who also brews at Blue Corn Cafe & Brewery
in Santa Fe, will oversee brewing - both pilot batches and small runs for
draft distribution - several monks will work in the brewery. The monks are
also experimenting with growing hops on the property, starting with native
New Mexican varieties. Details:

Ingredients / Water help needed...RA=450
« on: October 08, 2010, 10:52:03 AM »
I'm about to brew a batch of BVIP and rather than randomly throwing a tsp. of CaCO3 in the mash like I've always done, I'm sitting here with Palmer's spreadsheet trying to calculate my additions.  My water..


The beer color comes out to 45 SRM and according to the spreadsheet 450 is the median RA to shoot for.  6.5 gal. of mash water.  If I add 5 gr. of CaCO3, 3 gr. of CaCl2 (to balance the sulfates), and 4 gr. of baking soda, it only gets me up to 160 and those amounts are enough to start me worrying.  What to do?  Do I call it close enough or go crazy and add more?

In the next week or so, we'll be launching "Ask the Experts" as a special AHA members only feature on the main website.  We'll have various brewing experts available to answer questions you submit.  There will be an email address for people to submit questions on a topic the expert has decided on, and a couple weeks later the questions and answers will be posted on the main AHA website.  You'll have to be an AHA member to access them.  John Palmer will be the first expert, and we've got a couple more lined up after that.  We'll have one per month.  But I'd like to hear from all of you with suggestions about who you'd like to have and what topics you'd like them to cover.  Please post your suggestions here and I'll do my best to  contact the people you mention and ask them to participate.  Keep in mind that the experts will be volunteers who aren't reimbursed for their time.

Zymurgy / 2010 Sept./Oct. - Batch Sparging
« on: August 25, 2010, 02:02:56 PM »
If anyone has any questions related to my article, post 'em here!

But first, a the final paragraph, the sentence that begins "The only downside..." should read...

"The only downside to batch sparging is that it may be too fast!  A friend who brews 3 10 gal. batches at a time tried it and said it worked great, but didn't leave him enough extra time to deal with them all!"

Anyone who knows me knows how ludicrous is it to think of me doing 3 10 gal. batches at a time!
