As long as he doesn't start babbling about wet hops. ;D

No, no, you're doing fine on your own.... :D

BTW, I don't have to pay for backup when I'm right.... ;)

Sadly, it's not like front row seats at a Gallagher show, just a whole bunch of split watermelons.

Having had to clean up after Gallagher shows, I think we should all be thankful for that!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yet another Rookie question...Pitching
« on: May 19, 2011, 03:12:09 PM »
Also, while I absolutely loved "The complete joy of homebrewing" (it was the book that really taught me to brew "back in the day") I'd recommend picking up John Palmer's "How to Brew" to get a more up-to-date book on brewing.

Same here on both counts.  And buy the 3rd edition.  The online 1st ed. is handy, but John changed and updated a lot of info for the 3rd.  In addition, his writing style is a little looser and the 3rd. is more fun to read.

Beautiful spring weather today after typical cold and rainy spring weather yesterday.  Low 70s and sunny through the weekend...so they say!  ;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yet another Rookie question...Pitching

Your strainer won't strain out the yeast, but what you want to do is pitch the yeast into the wort in the fermenter once it's cooled down to your intended fermentation temp.  In your case, that means after you add the cooled wort to the water in your fermenter.

Beer Recipes / Re: How to classify a Black IPA for AHA competition?
« on: May 19, 2011, 02:24:16 PM »
I'd personally like to see a sub-category for Specialty IPA, which covers Black, Rye and Belgian-American style AIPA/DIPA, as well as possibly "Imperial Amber" and "Imperial Brown" ales.

That's a good idea, Thomas.

Well, the brewer at our local Rogue drove over to the brewery in Newport to pick up some Mt. Hood, so it looks like I'll be brewing a batch of Rye IPA at the Rogue here.  If you're in the Eugene area, it should be on tap in a few weeks.

I really need to find time to sit down and spend some time getting acquainted with Beersmith.  I've looked at it quickly a few times, but I get frustrated and end up just going back to Promash.

Yeah, it's a great song.  I love that it's in the context of 2 guys talking in the office.

Sounds like good choices....no advice from me, then!

All Grain Brewing / Re: Dunkelweizen and Devilled Eggs...Infection?
« on: May 19, 2011, 01:28:56 PM »
I've also gotten somewhat more clove and banana from a second pitch of the yeast, seems like the first pitch can be a little more subdued.

Very interesting...that's the opposite of what I've heard a lot of people say.  The common advice is to only use the yeast once because the esters and phenols (supposedly) diminish on subsequent pitches.

Paul, what type of hops did you use before and what are you thinking of using for the FWH version?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: A Call to Action - Speed Brewing
« on: May 19, 2011, 01:25:45 PM »
If the beer says "I'm done, drink me!", cool.  But if the beer is saying "hold on, bub, I need more time" and you go ahead and drink it anyway you may be doing yourself a disservice.  Believe me, I've been on both sides of that fence.

Is that where you found the mushrooms that make the beer talk?   ;D

Those were in the woods behind the house, man...

Are you bringing the uke to SD? ;D

Nope, can't figure out a good way to get it there.  Next year, though, our club intends to have a booth for club night and there's discussion of putting a band together for it!  LOOK OUT!   ;D

Mustang Sally.  ;D

I SWEAR TO GOD I won't sing!   ;D
