A toast to the brave men who assaulted the beaches at Normandy 67 years ago today.

Anyway, I'll introduce myself at your "pragmatic" discussion.........   

I'm looking forward to meeting you.  Don't expect too much at the talk...we won't be re-inventing the wheel!

Touche.  I wanted to go over enzymes and conversion temps a bit, but I could just incorporate that into explaining how they make the extract. 

Maybe enzymes, but personally I wouldn't muddy the waters with conversion temps.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: dry hop an Alt to add life to it??

I believe in this case it's "secret".  I'm told that the sticke is never announced in advance...it just shows up.

A fairly dry, malty-yet-hoppy beer would probably take a modest amount of a citrusy dry hop pretty well and make for a nice American amber.

Do Germans do much dry-hopping?

There is a form of alt called "sticke" that's stronger than a regular alt and is often dry hopped.

None of mine this year, but I'll be sure to stop by and try yours, Mic!

I agree with Paul.  Keep it simple, on point, and just cover the basics.  People are gonna be confused enough with extract brewing that you don't need to go into Ag now.  Save that for a later class and concentrate on the basics to get people making beer.

I don't treat my water - but again, I've never, ever had any 'chloriney' taste in any of my beers before - ever.  And it's pretty prominent in this beer - to the point where I would have easily been able to smell chlorine in the water as I was preparing to brew - and I definitely did not smell any at all.



Just because you haven't had it before doesn't mean that they couldn't have done a temporary increase in chlorine levels.  I've seen it happen before.

Are you sure it's legal to swap homebrew?  Just asking....

Almost slightly chloriney.

I can't imagine how that kind of flavor could be attributed to StarSan.

All I know is that they'll air 3 shows from Eugene sometime between Jan. and June next year.  I won't be on the air.  The big deal was a guy who brought a Norman Rockwell painting they valued at $500K!

I really don't like trying to "fix" beer once it's in the fermenter.

I agree.  Usually when I've tried to fix a beer it ends up worse than it probably would have been if I'd just left it.

Equipment and Software / Re: Extending the life of Star-San
« on: June 05, 2011, 11:24:55 AM »
Is the cloudiness really a problem, or is StarSan really still good to go as long as the pH is below 3.4 regardless of cloudiness?

I believe it's 3, not 3.4.
