Enough been, and most any chick'll look good.  ;D

You've apparently never played in a rock n roll band.  I've seen that theory disproven a number of times.

Pretty close to what I do, although I usually like a bit of carahell in mine.

Glissade is being replaced by Ruthless Rye IPA.  While I am not a fan of Rye IPAs, I am a big SN fan, so I know I'll give it a whirl...

Got a chance to try some of a test batch of Ruthless Rye at Beer Camp.  Seemed kinda tame, not a lot of rye flavor.

I've used S-189 to make a maibock with pretty good results.  I prefer WY2206, but you won't make a bad beer with S-189.

Equipment and Software / Re: Whirlpool Problem with Pump!

Interesting to hear that.  I've been using a Bazooka T in one of my kettles.  I've found that if I skip Irish moss or Whirlfloc it works great, but either one of those causes so much coagulation that the screen clogs in a minute or 2.  Maybe the fact that I'm using a pump exacerbates things.

Years ago there was a discussion on HBD about the benefits of zinc and several people advocated using zinc supplements in the wort.  I tried it but always ended up with off flavors.  I attributed them to not being able to cut the tabs down enough and getting too much zinc.  I have no idea if that's what was really happening, though.  Has anyone tried zinc supplements?

All the best to you and your pup, buddy.  Glad to hear the winds didn't cause you much problem.

I think an hour boil would be sufficient.

I don't know what to say about the recipe friend went to Dressler and this is the recipe he got.

It's exactly the same as in years past...that was verified when I was at Beer Camp.  They had just released it and I drank a lot of it on tap.  Verified with several people there that it's the same recipe.  They said that SN will give you any recipe you ask for.  Here's the Cele recipe direct from the brewmaster via a friend who works in the R&D lab....note that the hops times are backwards from what we normally think of.  I.e., "0" is the first addition and "100" means after boiling for 100 min.

Pale 2-row: 89%
Caramel (60L): 11%
Mash at 157.5 F
Original Gravity: 16.0 Plato
Ending Gravity: 4.0 Plato
ABV: 6.8%
0 min: Chinook & Centennial
90 min: Cascade
100 min: 2/3 Cascade & 1/3 Centennial

100 min: Whirlpool
IBU: 65
Dry Hopped with 2/3 Cascade & 1/3 Centennial
Yeast: SNBCo Ale

Well, I'm brewing today, not this weekend.  2nd brew session of the week, making Nick Danger porter.  Starting tomorrow I work every day and most nights through the end of the year, so I figured I'd better brew when I can!

The BA's secret handshake involves stroking one another's facial hair.

I don't even wanna think about that.....

Have you been to NHC before?  Seems like 90+% of the men have facial hair.  I think it has to do with brewing in general.

Oh, and Denny, Eugene is right above Springfield on that list.

DOH!  Makes sense....
