The Pub / Re: Things that are not illegal
« on: September 30, 2012, 09:11:33 AM »
Yet it is illegal to brew your own beer in your own home in the state of Alabama.

I thought the law said that you could brew 100 gallons of beer per legal adult per household up to 200 gallons, but didn't specify exactly who had to do the brewing or how possession worked.

In other words, if you live with your dad, you buy barley, you own the barley, you make beer, you ... still own the beer.

This seems to indicate a situation where illegal possession can occur without anyone actually doing anything illegal.  Mind you illegal possession seems ridiculous and silly, and also it would be hilarious to see cops raiding places because YOU HAVE BEER (welcome to riotville).

It's not like they could ban home brewing ... I mean what would be the justification?  The 'children' (read:  young adults) of this country have been corrupted by the evil great satan Barack Obama who hath given his deceptive example by having brewed the great poison in the sacred White House?  Yeah no, President brews his own beer, can't say brewing your own beer is a bad thing.

The president did not brew the beer.  a chef in the White House kitchen did.

There is no connection between possessing barley and possessing the beer made from that barley and other ingredients.

I don't know what your point is, but if this goes in the direction I fear it will, this thread is gone.

Here's the presentation on bottle conditioning from Jennifer Helber at Boulevard...looks like maybe they use both T-58 and S-33.

When I went to Boulevard a few months ago and a brewer said they bottle conditioned with the same yeast used for fermentation.

Interesting.  I'll have to see if I can dig up the presentation I saw and double check what I recall.

The explanation was that T58 forms a very tight, compact sediment on the bottom if the bottle.  There's so little fermentation going on for carbonation that is really doesn't impart any flavors.

Don't come to the PNW.  You won't like it.

These are not the droids you're looking for.......

THAT is the beauty of living in a place surrounded by a 2,700 mile wide moat.    ;D

But for me, that's also the downside.  My sister lives on the big island, and previously on Kauai and Maui.  I love HI, it's absolutely gorgeous, but after about 5 days I start feeling claustrophobic and want to get back to where I don't feel so confined.  Yeah, I know it's crazy....

Ingredients / Re: Pellets or whole for dry hopping?
« on: September 28, 2012, 10:35:37 AM »
I use whichever smell better when I'm ready to dry hop.  1-3 oz. for a week or so, then usually another 1-3 oz. in the keg.
Denny, does the sure screen work well with pellet hops in the keg??

So far, so good!  Although I usually bag them.

Could not resist on that one!

Hey, it was with the cases of wine...I totally forgot about it!  It was a nice surprise to find it, though!

I went to a seminar with the person responsible for bottling there and she made the T58 reference.

Is this the same Kruger responsible for current US economic policy by which the stupid Keynesians got it in their heads that they can keep the economy running hot forever by continuing to tweak knobs on all the bubbles so they never pop?  (QE3 is an attempt to re-inflate the already busted housing bubble)

Ahem...getting close to political there.

IIRC, they bottle everything they make with T-58.
