Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Rinsing Lager Yeast
« on: May 04, 2011, 08:32:11 AM »
It may have something to do with how flocculant the yeast is.  I'm trying some yeast rinsing at the moment and I'm finding that it takes 2-3 days at each step for the yeast to settle out.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: In Memorium, Ant Hayes, 1970-2011

I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Ant and tasting beers with him a couple times.  He was a true gentleman and deeply committed to homebrewers.  His passing is a true loss for all of us and my sincere condolences go out to his family.

They use a punch for lid holes at my LHBS.  I think that's the best solution in terms of a clean hole.

I'd treat it as slurry.

Slurry with a low non-yeast % and thick yeast concentration?


I'd treat it as slurry.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Cleaning Dip Tubes
« on: May 03, 2011, 08:29:19 AM »
I actually brush the diptubes every few cleanings, but I always make sure to depress the out poppet (tell it it's a worthless piece of trash  ;)) one the keg is full of Oxiclean or PBW.  The cleaner then fills the diptube and cleans it.

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.

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
« on: May 01, 2011, 11:52:36 AM »
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.
