General Homebrew Discussion / Re: BJCP category

About 12-13 years ago, a toasted coconut porter took the NHC.  I'll see if I can find out what category it was.  Maybe Gordon would know.

I have never sanitized the vanilla beans and I've never had a problem from not sanitizing.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Kitchen sink - is simple better

I guess I'm just saying that there's room for all kinds of recipes (and tastes), even a few complex ones.  Cheers, j

I agree completely.  Simpler isn't always better and complex isn't always better.  It's about doing whatever it takes to get the results you want.

If I'd remembered the "irish neighbour" story, I'd have remembered it was in there under that name but on some recipes, when you open them you can see who submitted it and on others you can't. 

I would like to see an inclusion of the submitters name in the recipe, not necessarily in the title.  It's not necessary but if you're looking at two recipes and ones by Denny and ones by me, you can probably be more confident that the Denny one will be good.

You may be giving me too much credit, Graham!  I try to include my name with the recipe, though.

Tom, in the title would be fine, but I do think it's important that the submitter's name is in there somewhere.

I looked there first Denny.  I didn't find anything with Tom's name on it which is why I asked.  I almost always check that first.  I do find a lot of recipes get talked about but far fewer end up in the wiki. 

Good on ya, Graham!  Hopefully, people who discuss recipes on this forum will post them on the wiki more often.  Makes things a lot easier to find in the future.

No pressure though, right D?  :)

I posted the recipe there, with flaked barley listed since that is what I normally use.

Pressure?  Me???

So all of the Cross Dressing Amateurs come from the Pacific Northwest, huh?  Didn't know that...

Nah, we're pros here....

Just a reminder..a great place to look for (or post) recipes is the AHA recipe wiki....

Cool!  Got some waiting in the fridge!

Beer Recipes / Re: Getting closer to pumpkin time....

Does pumpkin alone add anything in terms of flavour?

Not that I've been able to detect.

I th8ink carapils has its place.  But I also think adding it solely for foam isn't its place.

Beer Recipes / Re: Impy Stout - HELP?

I think that with a big grain bill for a high OG beer, no sparge becomes about your only option.  You use so much mash water that you get your full boil volume without needing much, if any, sparging.

Re: depends on what you want to enter it as.  If you use peppers, chocolate, etc. you likely won't be able to enter it as a straight RIS.

Brew a test batch without it and see what you think.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: First extract in years
« on: September 08, 2011, 10:21:27 AM »
I'll 3rd that sentiment!  I was also running around trying to figure out what to use for what.  I think the first extract batch I did after my hiatus took a couple hours longer than my AG average.
