I think I'll order a bag of the pils to check out.  It's a club bulk order so it'll take a couple months to get it and by that time it'll be too warm for me to brew lagers here.  I'll stash it til next winter, so it'll be a while before I know.

Denny, malt from Prostejov Malting is sold thru MCMS. They started to offer it in the fall for the first time. I have never tried it but they have been in business for some time. It is in Moravia region of Czech Republic.

You buy it and let me know. :)

I just may do that, Leos!

I have an opportunity to buy Czech pils and Munich from Prostejov Malting.  Anybody ever heard of them or used their malt?

A bubbling airlock doesn't necessarily mean continued fermentation.  It simply means that CO2 is coming out if solution.  Taking a gravity reading is never out of place.

Belated best wishes to you Denny. Hope you were able to "NOT" work for a change.

Thanks, Diane.  Fortunately, we've been in a work slump (although today is 14 hours!) so I had time for cooking and drinking.  Probably should have dome a bit less of both!

Could be a chance for eagle soup; not saying it is right but he isn't going anywhere either... (J/K)

The above statement is authorized because it is my B-Day and beer.

Rectum, damn near killed 'em!

Don't judge!!!!!

Happy Birthday!  Mine was yesterday.

I would also think this is an astringent issue - what is your sparging/vorlauf/run-off process like?

And more important...pH

Brewing Denny's BVIP.  Been a while since I've brewed this one.  Don't know why, everyone seems to like it a lot.  Where the heck is Drew, anyway?

I don't know why, either!  ;)  Drew's busy on a book.

No brewing this weekend, but I'll be doing a doppelbock sometime next week and a Rye IPA a few days later.  Just depends on when the yeast is ready.

General Homebrew Discussion / Refactometer

My difference was always exceptional - like 8 points off or so. And I use the onebeer.net conversion as well. Not sure why it never worked for me.

Lately my refractometer has been giving me screwy reading on pre fermentation readings as well so I just use my hydrometer now for everything.

Same here.  I have 2 refractometers and they read different from each other and both are different than my hydrometer.  I've gone back to hydrometer for everything.

this may sound dumb, but you aren't looking at it through your glasses are you?  I've compared at least 3-4 refractos to mine (at club brews and such) and they've always been close, usually off due to calibration.

Both with and without, makes no difference.

I have used the Weyermann Bohemian Pils and the Floor Malted Bohemian Pils, along with the standard Weyermann Pils. I think the malt variety is the big differrence, the floor malting adds a little more flavor, but not much.

Jeff, you bring up something I've always been curious about...what is it about floor malting that makes a difference?  Why would that add more flavor?  Any idea?
As I understand it, there is more variation in the kernels, leading to a broader flavor. Other than that I don't have any data to share.

Hey, that's a better guess than anything else I've heard!

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Dues for Home Brew Club
« on: February 14, 2013, 11:00:27 AM »
Our club is starting to grow and we are thinking about starting dues. I was wondering if anyone who is part of an established club would be willing to answer a few questions
Does your club have Dues?
How much are they?
Is it mandatory?
Do you have an option for those who don’t want to pay dues but want to participate occasionally in club events? Such as paying per meeting or activity.
What do you do if someone who was a paying member doesn’t pay after a few reminders?
What if they end up showing up at your meetings or events, are they asked to leave?
Thank you in advance

Our club dues are $20/person, $25/family.  We'll let people come and check out a meeting or 2, but after that they have to pay dues.  If they don't pay, they are dropped from the mailing list of club activities.
