All Grain Brewing / Re: Strong RIS Mash Schedule
« on: November 29, 2011, 09:20:00 AM »
only 4lbs were highly modified (1ea of Carafa III, Chocolate, Coffee and Roast Barley).

Color isn't an indicator of the degree of modification.

When using yeast nutrient, when do you add and how much?

I add a pinch (maybe 1/8 tsp.) to my starter wort.

I grabbed a lb. last year and it was barely enough!

Do you use them along with other hops or straight up?

Both...I don't waste 'em on bittering.  I ues 'em for FWH, flavor and aroma hops.  Sometimes with others, sometimes all FF.

I 'm told there will be 2 different Falconer's Flight blends available, although neither one will be exactly the same as last year's.
That's awesome Denny, any other details?  The original was definitely an "American" hop blend, will the new ones be two variations on that or will one be something else?  I'm just curious what they're going for.  And if they are taking pre-orders :)

2 different Am. blends...but damned if I can find the info now!

This is another fine mess you've gotten us into!  ;)

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: 5.2 stablizer and partial mash

It pretty much depends on what the bottled water is like and what your grist bill is.

Use light extract and get all your color and flavor from specialty grains.

The Pub / Re: Digitizing Vinyl Records

Well, I am a little fussy about the audio quality. I may be getting in a little over my head, but from conversations I have had, here goes: I would like the sample rate to be 96kHz done at 24bits. The other thing I was looking to do was place the recordings uncompressed on an external hard drive using jpeg 2000. Any thoughts as to how I would accomplish this with a usb drive turntable? I own a very old turntable, and I feel that to adapt it would cost as much as buying a new turntable. My old one is not that good so buying something new would be fine by me.

You won't hear any difference at 24/96.  That's a good choice for editing workstations in order to account for rounding errors, but it's really unnecessary as a listening standard.

Beer Recipes / Re: wheat wine
« on: November 27, 2011, 10:02:36 AM »
Maybe you've had a different experience, but every wheat wine I've had was much more like a BW than a wheat beer.  Based on that, are you sure you want to go in a spicy, phenolic direction?

Equipment and Software / Re: Anyone built a stirrer for decoctions?
« on: November 27, 2011, 10:00:31 AM »
The beers I made did not taste like they were decocted at all.
Just do not tell this to Denny.  :D

I hope you notice how I held my tongue!  I've always fekt somewhat vindicated in my belief about decoction after that tasting of Kai's beers we did.  Even he couldn't tell which was decocted and which wasn't!

Super dangerous idea to add boiling - or even hot - liquid to carboy. Ever! The last thing you want to happen is a carboy to shatter in your hands. There have been many people over the years who have had serious laceration from breaking carboys. Serious loss of blood! It's probably a good idea to start reminding people of the dangers of glass carboys again.

THIS^^^^....NEVER put hot liquid in a carboy or use hot water to clean it.  several of mine even have a warning stamped on the bottom.

Ingredients / Re: Diastatic Power of Munich
« on: November 24, 2011, 01:41:54 PM »
great western, 10L

That's one of the better ones in terms of diastatic power (plus I really like the flavor!).  Asking it to convert 50% more than its own weight is pushing it.  I think it would do it, but if you want to be safe you might consider adding a 1lb. or 2 of pale just to be sure.
