All Grain Brewing / Re: New to all grain. Need help with set up
« on: May 10, 2012, 09:54:09 AM »
Focus on the process (cleaning, sanitation, fresh ingredients, water profiles, pH, mash temps, yeast starter, fermentation temps) and not the equipment.

This is what every new brewer needs to hear.

Denny, How would you rate the processes of SN vs. Rogue?  Which brewery impressed you the most?

Keep in mind that I brewed at a small satellite Rogue brewery, although I've been to the main brewery many times.  Obviously SN is much larger.  I also think SN is more geeky/techy/tightly controlled (in terms of the brewing process) than Rogue.

All Grain Brewing / Re: how long is too long for FWH?

When you FWH do you remove the hops prier to boil?

Nope.  You leave them in all the way through.

The problem I have with a lot of those names is that the people who come up with them think they're a lot more clever than they actually are.  To me, most risque beer names come across as juvenile and dumb.

No personal experience with FWH that long, but I agree with the other guys.  I don't think it will be a problem.  Might even be a good idea!

You didn't get to dump the hops into the boil kettle?  That and what you said.

Oh, yeah, that too....one of the other guys did it and I forgot that part.  The Rogue brew was much more physical!

Working all weekend but I'll brew some Rye IPA on Mon.  After all the NHC brewing, we're about out if beer at home, so this one is for us.

Yeah...there's a lot of responsibility and work preparing for the NHC when it's in your backyard.  It'll be my turn next year in Philly.  :)

And I'll be expecting you guys to put on a great one!

Thanks for sharing Denny. Looked like that brew day was a lot harder than our brew day at SN  ;)

It sure was!  I told John about the "brewing" at SN and he laughed.

So John is not into clicking icons on the display to do the brewing?  :)

Edit - Not that there is anything wrong with that. We did one of our beers at a local Brewpub, and there was no manway on the mash tun.  The wet spent grain from 7 bbls. of a Baltic Porter had to come up and over- good thing it was wide and shallow. They are getting a 14 barrel system soon, with a manway on the mashtun. My friend Bob told the brewer that with that, he had gotten a raise! Those guys work hard, real hard.

Man, I can't imagine having to do that!

I don't know about your Beer Camp, but for us "brewing" involved weighing out the hops and grain and watching Scott and his crew do the work.

BTW, all gravity readings were taken with a hydrometer at the Rogue brew.  John hates refractometers!

I think "Concern Troll Kolsch" would be appropriate too.
And there's always the popular "Hold on, honey, someone on the Internet is Wrong Wheat"

Personally, I find casual misogyny as offensive as casual racism. In other words, I find it a little bit more upsetting than someone claiming you never need to make a starter, or you should ferment your beer at 90*F.

Thank God this is America, where anyone is free to be a bigot, and I'm free to deride them.

Who's being a bigot?  I was simply making comment on the nature of arguments on the Internet.  ???

I think that was directed at me. :D

I used to give my beers creative and meaningful names.  Now they end up with something like "#410 German Pils".

I ended up going with a kit from Midwest a blonde ale.

It has caravienne in it was does it do? :)

Caravienne is like a light crystal malt.  Will add body, color, and a touch of sweetness.

Yeah, our club is swerving at club night.  Look for a booth that looks like Ken Kesey's bus!

That depends on who we let drive the bus.
