Ingredients / Re: Flavor/Aroma hops - adjust for AA% or no?

 I don't adjust for AA since you get little to no IBU from them.

Is the Rye IPA going to be at the banquet or is it the bottle they give to the attendees?

It's one of the commemorative beers you get when you register.  Rogue is also bringing some kegs for various events.  We didn't have time to get 1450 cultured up for it so we're using Pacman.

8 AM and we just mashed in for 15 bbl. of Rye IPA for the conference.  We're brewing at Rogue's Buckman Brewhouse in PDX.  My friend Tom came along to help...he's the guy in the picture...

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Too much water in priming solution

Not a problem.  But you can use as little water as you can get away with for boiling your priming sugar.  I usually try to keep it under a cup.

Malteries Franco Belge also makes a Special Aromatic, which is closer to a Vienna.  It can be used as a base malt, while aromatic shouldn't be.

Going Pro / Another view about commercial Nano brewing.

Ironically, I have been looking at these numbers quite closely as our tasting room where we planned to sell 4, 8, and 16oz samples of the beer has come under quite a bit of attack by local residents.

In our market, with my overhead (rent, utilities, etc.), using the standard sixtel pricing in our area, I would need to wholesale 500 barrels per year to break even. That is a lot of brewing on any system less than 10 barrels. That is self-distributed of course, if I had to use a distributor, it would be more.

Not to mention that's just breaking even.  I can't imagine you wouldn't want a return on your investment and effort.

Very clever!

Keep in  mind that at the moment this only applies to commercial beers, not homebrew.  There's a long way to go and it's a slow process, but things are looking up.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Bru'n Water weirdness

Martin, you rock!  Thanks so much for your work.

IIRC, you can make and pitch a started in as little as 18 hours, according to "Yeast" by White and Zainasheff.  "Most starters ... reach their maximum cell density within 12 to 18 hours.Low iunnoculation rates and low temps can extend that time out to 36 hours or more, but the bulk of the growth will be complete within 24 hours."  Make it now, pitch in 24 hours.

That doesn't give you time to decant the spent wort, though.
