The Pub / Re: Bin Laden's dead

It's just funny that the timing coincides with Obama having a deadline in a day or two to announce his re-election campaign."

Just so you know, that was the line.  And now it's over.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Snap, crackle, BURP!

It should work, but be sure to check how much sodium is in it.  At one of the Iron Brewer contests I run for our club, the secret ingredient was breakfast cereal.  One team got cocoa puffs, one got Lucky Charms, one got fruit loops, and one got cinnamon nut Cheerios.  I barely escaped with my life that day!

I've always heard that no poisonous snakes live in western OR.  In my nearly 40 years here, I've never seen one.

Easy....5 gal. at 60 gravity gives you 300 gravity units (5*60+300).  If you have 6 gal., it becomes 300/6=50.  So the gravity would be 1.050.

I celebrate along with everyone else, but please, everybody be very careful how far you take your comments.  Please don't make us lock this thread.  Bob, my friend, you came real close.

Beer Recipes / Re: Red Witbier?

I don't think using a "pinch" of either (1-2 oz.) will have much, if any, impact on flavor.  My comment was based on the fact that I find Sinamar easier to control than guessing at the right amount of a dark malt.

If all you want is color, Sinamar would be easier.  You can just add a bit at a time til yo get the color you want.

The Pub / Re: Gone shooting

I thought about that, too, Jeff.  If you're just shooting for practice or fun, why does it have to be the outline of a person you're shooting at?  If you were an LEO or military, i could see it....maybe.

3.91 average here

Mine's lagering in the back of the serving fridge, behind the kegs on tap.  I'm gonna dig it out in the next couple days.

Years ago, when I was in Boy Scouts, I was into target shooting with both rifles and bow and arrow.  Did some skeet shooting, too, but I never had any urge to hunt.  I liked developing the skills but I didn't want to kill anything.  I once accidentally hit a mourning dove with an arrow and cried for hours.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP001 vs Wyeast
« on: May 01, 2011, 08:19:58 AM »
I'm not gonna mention the Wyeast # because I don't want this to turn into another Rush discussion but are WLP001 and Wyeast California lager the same yeast?  I brewed the other day with WLP001 and right now things look very very similar in terms of how the yeast is acting.  Given that White Labs call theirs a California Ale and not a lager, I was thinking I'd see more aggressive fermentation and more krausen but right now, not much. 

Anyway, just wondering if there is any appreciable difference between the two.

They are completely different yeasts.  Comparing krausen really doesn't tell you anything.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast for an IPA

If you brew American IPA, what yeast do you use?

WY1450, WY1272, WY1056, US-05 for me.

I was looking through the generic recipes in Stephen Snyder's The Brewmaster's Bible (copyright 1997). For India Pale Ales he recommended Wyeast's 2565 or 1007. Wyeast lists these as Kölsch and  German Ale respectively.

I've been using Safale 05, American Ale. Am I using the wrong yeast?

No, you're reading the wrong book IMO.
