Equipment and Software / Re: Tasting arm questions
« on: April 12, 2011, 08:45:58 AM »
For little stuff like that I usually use stpats.com - looks like they're $1.50-$4.00 depending on size.

Just be careful what you say or they'll accuse you of being a Taliban and ban you from buying from them!  ;)

All Grain Brewing / Re: 20 min mash
« on: April 12, 2011, 08:37:05 AM »
I understand that most domestic craft brewers do super-short mashes. Why don't we (homebrewers)? Anyone tried this? Any reason not to? Do you have to greatly adjust mash temp?

The also sparge and lauter for over an hour, all the while at mash temps.  To say they do a 20 min. mash isn't really accurate.

I've never heard of the stuff, but it would seem to be what you need.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Ringwood yeast
« on: April 11, 2011, 02:21:07 PM »
This yeast seems to be a love it or hate it thing.  I'm in the latter camp.  Just doesn't suit my tastes.

As someone who's had a heart attack, allow me to say that you're an idiot.

As someone who's never had a heart attack, allow me to say that I like turtles.

Made my day, Barry!

Yet!  But then 20 years ago he wasn't nearly so crotchety as I've heard he is now.  :)

Boy, he sure was 13 years ago when I started brewing!  Some classic "mill wars" between him and Dan Listermann on rec.crafts.brewing.

Denny, What did you think of the Falconer's flight?  I've been looking forward to giving them a whirl.

So far, I like them a lot.  Most of the beers I've used them on are still fermenting so I only have a couple beers that I've actually tasted them in, but I think they're gonna be a winner.

Tom - are you related to a jack schmidlin? i read a few articles by him on an old website.  just curious. also congrats on the election.
You're not he first to ask . . . as Denny pointed out, he's Schmidling with a G, but you never know what happened at Ellis Island. :)  Jack and I exchanged emails on that about 20 years ago, as far as we can tell we are unrelated, at least for the last few generations.  I can't remember if his family is from the same area of Switzerland as my grandfather was.

And you're not nearly as crochety....YET!   ;D

I was amused by the thought, though...

Yeah....what a concept!

The questions for Sean are now closed.  The answers will be posted in a week or so and we'll let you know when that is.  Our next expert will be Patrick Rue from the Bruery, who will take questions about homebrewers opening a commercial brewery.

Jack is "Schmidling" with a "g" on the end.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Best dry hoping method?
« on: April 11, 2011, 08:43:16 AM »
I am brewing Tasty's Janet's Brown to serve at NHC and was close to the end of diacetyl rest and wanted to see if anybody had some other ideas for dry hopping. Anyway I added the dry hops today and have about 2 or 3% apparent attenuation to go. If it's any good it will be one of my beers at club night/hospitably booth.

Matt

Let me know when you'll be serving.  I'd like to try it!

What hoses do you all use?  Perhaps post some links of what hose you bought/use and how well it works for you(?)

I use a generic RV hose....3 of them, in effect.
