Beer Recipes / Re: Nutty Brewnette... American Brown Ale guidance

As a comparison, here's a link to my Noti (pronounced No-Tie)Brown ale recipe that's won a few awards...

Zymurgy / Re: 2011 Zymurgy topics

How about taking a piece of geeky brewing research and dumb it down to a Joe 6 pack level?  I want to know what people are experimenting with and what the results are but I can get through these technical research papers.

That's a great idea.  Take a very technical topic and put it in average homebrewer terms and explain how it relates to what we do.

Ingredients / Re: Paying for hops is worth it !!!
« on: September 13, 2010, 09:18:56 AM »
I had a similar thought as I was on the 5th day of harvest of my hops.  I used to really obsess about them.  These days, whatever I get from them is good enough for me, and I'll just buy the rest!

Doug, I can't answer your question, but I've got to say you come up with some of the most interesting and original ideas for beers that I've run across!  Why not try it in a split batch so you'll have a control to taste it against?  You could do your mash, split the wort, and add MSG to one boil.

damn, time rolls on & we've got a whole new week in front of us. on this day in 1969 -
After an eight-day Canadian tour, Frank Zappa disbanded the Mothers of Invention, claiming he was "tired of playing for people who clap for all the wrong reasons."

being new to the forum, I don't know weazletoe. and so have no idea if there's any link between the name and Weasels Ripped my Flesh, but to cross link this to a couple of other threads .... it did bring up a rather scary image of little weasels in kilts, all brewing regimental.

Good night boys & girls . . . Thank you for coming to our concert
Zappa! of my first musical idols and the main reason I got into show biz.  After the first time I heard "Freak Out", I pretended I was sick for 3 days so I could stay home from school and listen to that album and try to learn the songs on my acoustic guitar.

and yours truly will be old enough to know better, but still to young to care.

You're turning 18?   ;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: W2112/W4021 Combination?
« on: September 12, 2010, 02:55:23 PM »
There's a really good chance that the champagne yeast will be unnecessary.  I've made more than a few 12% beers without it.  As jeffy said, pitch a lot of healthy yeast and you should be fine.  As a matter of fact, when I've tried using champagne yeast I've been less that pleased with the results.  Maybe it's just my imagination, but it seems to make beer taste less "beer like".  Using the honey should help dry out the unfermentables that will be in the DME, so I think you're on the right track.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Controlling pH
« on: September 11, 2010, 08:26:36 AM »
And in my experience it doesn't always work in pale beers, either.  If you use it, you should check your pH and not just assume it's correct.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Dry hopping with homegrown hops
« on: September 11, 2010, 08:22:42 AM »
I've dry hopped with homegrown hops at least dozens of times and never gotten an infection from it.  I have a keg on tap right now with 2 oz. of my homegrown Cascades in it as dry hops.  No problems.

I'm wearing shorts that are quite drafty in the crotch. Does this qualify?

I'm waiting for somebody to reintroduce dial telephones with cords.http://
how about just picking it up and talking to someone.  You need some help from someone named Mabel.

That's how it was in my small town when I was a kid.  I remember 2 digit phone numbers.

Denny's so old, not only does he remember 2-digit phone numbers, but they're the only ones he CAN remember! Ha!
Sorry, Denny... I couldn't resist that one.
