Beer Recipes / Re: Hopstand & Dry Hop IPA

I have also thought about mash hopping (as suggested at my LHBS) but don't know how this variable might also play with bitterness.  This a cool part of homebrewing that we are afforded the ability to do so many different things that might not be possible at large scales.  Thanks again.

I did some experimenting with mash hopping.  My conclusion was that I got as much out of mash hopping as I would if I'd thrown the hops away.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Experience with Saflager 34/70?

Only a little experience and the beer was a good tasting German lager.

Often said to be the same as wlp830 or Wyeast 2124.

I've used it 3-4 times and have pretty much the same assessment.  I know I used it for German pils, but I can't recall what else.

Hop Growing / Re: Almost that time again

That's amazing growth for the first year!  I got 2 cones from my first year Cascade!  Since then, I've gotten as much as 23 lb. (wet) from that single plant.

Simple is the best way to go...except for when it's not!  ;)

Turns out the local newspaper is sending a reporter and photographer to cover my brew session Thur.   I'm teaching a beginning homebrewing class at a local rec center in Sept. and they want to publicize that.  This will be the 3rd time in the last 10-12 years that the local paper has come to a brew session.

They give me a discount every time I go there, because I'm there so much.

Yeah, same here.  Plus I send biz their way.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Who Uses a Blow-Off Tube and When?
« on: August 13, 2013, 03:47:38 PM »
I use a blow off for every batch I make.  Otherwise, by the time you discover you need one it's usually too late.  I have found that there's no down side to using one.  I generally leave it on for the first week or 2 of fermentation simply because there's no reason to remove it.

He's really good at desserts.

Oh, man, that was SO good!  I wish they would have started the meal with it so I wasn't so full by the time they served dessert!

OK, heard from the AHA IT dept.  They're looking into why it doesn't work if you're not online.  Like I said, it's supposed to.  They have also gotten a quote for the programming required to put in the delete feature and will get it done as soon as the quote is approved.  I think that will be pretty soon, but no definite timeline.

I love having the issues on my iPad, since as a road warrior its nice to read them on the go, but that also leads to my biggest frustration. The app requires a data connection to keep you logged in.

That is a great point.  I would love to hear an explanation.  In my experience, that is not how other magazines work.

Another app question - is there a way to delete issues once they are read?  If there is, I have missed it.  Unfortunately, I am space limited on the iPad and need to balance reading and music for each business trip.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I was told that you could read downloaded issues off line, but I just tried it and it didn't work.  There is unfortunately no way to delete issues at the moment. Believe me, I let them know that wasn't a good thing.  They plan on adding that, but there is no word on when.

Pretty much the same here.  Prices are not at the forefront, since any business is entitled to make a profit on their goods and services...I appreciate a bargain as much as anyone, but I'd rather pay a little more and support a local business that is run by helpful, knowledgable, friendly and dedicated people.

Sounds just like my situation, Al!  I can get slightly lower prices elsewhere, but not enough to overcome the personal connection I have with my LHBS.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: ale still fermenting after 4 weeks
« on: August 12, 2013, 03:37:14 PM »
Also, don't make a starter for dry yeast.  It's unnecessary and can be counter productive.  And when you do make starters, use malt and not corn syrup or sugar.

Sounds disappointing but good to know the award dinner should probably be skipped in the future.

I would definitely not skip it in the future.  I missed NHC this year, but in the previous ones I've been to Sean's dinners have been one of the highpoints.  As far as I can tell, this year was an anomaly.
