In my case, it would be a moot point since my beer names are like "#424 German Pils".

I'm not nearly to that many batches, but I still get a bit lazy with naming (even though my fiance inspires some pretty great names). I tend to name a recipe that I've been working on for a while (e.g. Pants on Fire, Complete Twaddle, etc) but most of my batches just end up as "Nelson Saison", "Amarillo Saison", "Dry Stout", etc.

There's always the random beer name generator...

At any rate, a judge should not be experiencing a 20 or less at the June final round, especially if the beer scored 30+ in April.

The first time I judged final round was in Orlando with you.  We judged bocks.  I recall both of us saying how disappointed we were in the overall quality of them.

Maybe there's no place on the entry form for the name?  I dunno....
Well, then why not?

Good question.  In my case, it would be a moot point since my beer names are like "#424 German Pils".

The Pub / Re: I am really disappointed in Sam Adams
« on: July 06, 2013, 07:21:18 PM »
Sam Adams will always have a place in my heart. When they bought 20,000 Lbs of hop pellets in 2008, and than turned around and sold them to micro breweries with no profit. Just because they think competition forces them to make better beer.

I know it was just a publicity stunt. And I doubt they really want competition. But I still thought it was a really classy move.

Wasn't that because they didn't need the hops?  Was it intended to be altruistic?

Not sure about the hops, but I really respect Jim Koch for buying the rights to the New Albion trademarks and conveying them to Jack McAuliffe for free.

Yep, that's great!

Good to see you posting again, Kai.

Let's see how much time I can find for the forums.

I believe it's because Plato is more precise than sg when it comes to attenuation calculations, for example. Also, most of the brewing calculations are based on Plato or a similar measure of wort solids.

Sg works well enough and was picked up by home brewers. Sg based brewing calculations also originate in UK brewing if I'm not mistaken.

When I toured AB a while back I noticed extract displays in Balling.

I apologise for stirring this up.

Don't worry about it....just goes to show that we all care more about respecting each other than about spewing our political opinions.

So what's used to measure the finishing Plato? I know they can use a refractometer only if they use a formula like Sean's. Sorry to seem dense. If they use a hydrometer then wouldn't that require them to convert to Plato?

My hydrometer reads in Brix, Plato, and SG.

Now if we can just get Pandora back into the box.

Yeah.  So far, so good, everybody, but please watch what you say.

This thread is a teasing squirrel to my inner political chihuahua.

Yeah, I think we all deserve a beer for not going there!  Unfortunately I won't be able to have mine til tomorrow.

While I admire the homeowner's chutzpah  and I'm sure many of us would like to do that, it seems incredibly stupid.  What if the guy was armed?
If he wasn't, it would have been much harder to tie him up!

Swyped. Excuse any strange substitutions I missed.

I meant the intruder.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Wheat malt...poor extraction
« on: July 06, 2013, 11:48:39 AM »
Ot could be that the number you're using for the potential extract of the wheat malt is higher than the malt really is.  Just a WAG.....what potential are you using?
