General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Collecting data at NHC?
« on: May 02, 2015, 03:36:57 AM »
Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I couldn't find a forum that seemed more appropriate.

I plan to bring at least one, potentially two, xBmt beers with me to NHC and I'd like to have conference goers participate.  As a first-time attendee, I'm not sure what the best approach to doing this would be and I'm curious if anybody might have any advice to offer? Worst case scenario, I invite interested folks up to my room. I guess I'm wondering if there might be some place and time where it's cool if I share some beer with people and have them fill out a survey. Nothing flashy.

Thanks!

I can't think of any way other than in your room.  We might have a chance to set up a forum meetup somewhere and you could probably do it there...if it happens.  But there's been no discussion of htat so far.

Awesome looking trip, Denny. That brewery sounds fantastic. And I found out one time that cachasa can sure put the hurt on ya  ;D   Enjoy.

They gave us each (me, Drew, Mike Tonsmiere, and Scott Bickham) a bottle of cachaca to bring home.  I think it will be more than a lifetime supply.

Nope, but the Vienna from Bierland may be the best Vienna I've ever tried.

Just in case anyone is interested, here are some pics from our first day in Brazil.  Started off going to an artisinal glass factory where they helped us blow our own crystal beer glasses.  It's a heavily German area, so lunch at a great German restaurant.  Then to Bierland brewery, one of the most respected in Brazil, for some incredible German beers.  Followed that with a trip to Brazil's first brewing school.  Only a year old and they have 1000 students.  Finished the day at a cachasa distillery in the middle of the jungle.

A part of the reason we did this is to take something that mkes you go "WTF" and make ot work...we hope.  If you're in SD for NHC you can find out for yourself.

Speaking of saison, I'm sitting inthe airport waiting to fly to LA to brew saison with Drew and John Palmer...clam chowder saison.....yes, it's true.  We'll be serving it at our talk at NHC.

Manhattan clam chowder?

Shhhh!  You'll insult Drew!  It's a New England clam chowder saison.....no tomatoes!

BTW, as I said on your website, I think the exbeeriment perfectly demonstrated why so few breweries ferment under pressure.

Hopefully we won't spread botulism throughout NHC!

Very good write up by Greg. Keep 'em coming Marshall!

Thanks, Amanda! I thought this was a really interesting topic that I haven't seen much about in terms of homebrewing. I'm most curious about how pressurized fermentation impacts lager fermentation, which means I'll likely be building a spunding valve fairly soon :)

Just so happens there are instructions for one on pg. 66 of Experimental Homebrewing!

whatwhatwhat??? Tell me there are no clams in the beer and something else driving the chowda designation.

Potato flakes, herbs and spices and clam juice.....God knows what else Drew has planned for it!

no worries about clam juice spoiling or otherwise shortening the shelf life?

Who the hell knows?  I don't think so, but it's uncharted territory.
