The Pub / Re: How long before there are no spelling or grammar rules?

I participate in a couple forums where there can be heated political discussions,  I fond that I tend to ignore the comments of people who can't spell or write properly, no matter which side of an issue they're on.

LOL

Typing is my downfall....

I don't care what you call it, I still won't drink it!   ;D

I got a sack of this malt because I intend to brew a no-sparge single-infusion Helles and a decoction Helles to see if I can tell a difference. When my fermentors open up next month I'll brew those.

I volunteer to help you test!

And I will go to my grave defending the double space behind a period.

Denny, only 218? Slackers! :)

We're going for quality, not quantity!

Our club is bringing a total of 218 gal. of beer for club night and the hospitality suite.  Probably more just for personal consumption.  I'm bringing a Wee Shroomy, a Tofu Pale Ale, Rye IPA, Waldo Lake Amber, and a Belgian/American IPA.

You, sir, receive today's Gold Star for Pragmatism!  Good on ya!

Thanks Denny! Also, that wasn't a rhetorical question for the OP. I'm seriously wondering what specifically they want to get out of secondary-ing their lager.

I understand.  That's a valuable question to ask about any practice in home brewing.

Well, it's unanimous then.  Just don't tell Tasty McDole or Nathan Smith! ;D

Hey, I'd be happy to tell them!  Despite what they say, I have my own experience and that wins every single time.

With any aspect of brewing, I've found it useful to stop and think about the why of what you're doing. Just because it's "common sense" doesn't mean it's actually necessary. What do you want to get out of a secondary, and can you get the same results without it?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Single-Malt beers
« on: April 17, 2012, 10:41:47 AM »
I'd say maybe they're worth it.  They're definitely a great way to learn ingredient flavors.  Sometimes they make a good beer, sometimes they come off as boring and one dimensional to me.  You just need to give it a try and see for yourself.

Ingredients / Hopshot and Hop extract
« on: April 16, 2012, 09:59:48 AM »
I've actually made an all Hopshot beer using it at 60, 20, and flameout.  Kinda underwhelming.  Maybe I didn't use enough.  The bittering was firm, but kinda mellow.  Flavor was a bit soapy.  Aroma was pretty much non existent.

Believe we had them as separate at first, sort of useless and too much segmentation and too many subforums.

blech.

This.  We purposely decided to prune the number of separate topic area.  We had gotten complaints about the structure being too complicated.  Guess you can't plese everybody...

All Grain Brewing / 10% Malted Wheat
« on: April 14, 2012, 11:12:39 AM »
Contemplating a recipe here. Haven't used malted wheat in anything for donkey's years. Am I going to want/need rice hulls, or at 10% will I most likely get away without a stuck run off.

Unless you have a seriously screwed up mashing system ( and knowing you I doubt it) 10% wheat shouldn't be a problem at all.
