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.

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.

Make sure it doesn't have any "stuff" in it that you wouldn't want in your beer.

Nobody givin' FWH any love?  I'd use an oz. of the Centennial as FWH.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Can you get rid of fusels?
« on: April 29, 2011, 10:29:58 AM »
Just guessing, but I think if the fusels are reduced enough to affect aroma and flavor that the headache effect would be reduced also.

I've often thought about popcorn, but I haven't gotten to it yet.
