I heard good things about Williamette? I read an article a week or so ago that recommended it for APA/IPA

Despite the fact that I live in the Willamette valley near the Willamette river, you'll never find Willamette hops in my IPA!  They have an earthiness I don't care for.

I'll be there...I'm introducing you!

I haven't had that one, but Keith's other beers that I've tried have been outstanding.  I'm not surprised to hear how good this one is.

Not unless you heat them during the mash or insulate them.

No brewing today.  Kegged 2 batches yesterday and have one more in the fermenter.

After 440 batch sparged brews, I've reached the conclusion that it just doesn't matter all that much.  I sparge with water anywhere from 180-200 F and that gets my grain bed into the upper 160s.  That's good enough.  If it's lower than that, it doesn't matter.  If it's a bit higher than that, it doesn't matter as long as your pH is OK.

Professor, you have been brewing almost longer than i have been alive, so i yield to your knowledge.  do you care to share your secret to having a quality ipa that can run out longer than six months?

genuine interest here.

It all comes down to your personal tastes and preferences.  I've had a lot of IPAs that were older than 6 months and still tasted great.  But my own preference is for IPA "styles" that are ready to drink when they're younger.

I was going to drive up and bring a bunch of beer but now my plans have changed and I'm flying and not sure I want to risk the bottle breakage that happened last time with by check in bag. Had underwear soaked in tripel. Not fun!

Sean said it was a lot of fun....;)

I was one of those guys, bringing back two cases of Banquet Beer in the trunk of my 912 in 1973.  Could have sold a few sixes on the way back in Oklahoma.

I took a U Haul trailer from IA to CO a couple times to fill it up with Coors.

I'm a big fan of Columbus or Chinook for bittering IPA.

Hey, Ron, any info you can provide?

Beer Recipes / Re: Bottling for my Grand Cru

Grand Cru is not  style, it's a designation of a brewery or winery's best product.  So you have a lot of latitude in what to do.  That said, I think champagne yeast is a really bad idea.  I'd stick with a Belgian yeast.  Maybe WY 1388.

Turns out Gary pointed this thread out to them yesterday, so they're aware of the issue and looking into it.
