Nobody givin' FWH any love?  I'd use an oz. of the Centennial as FWH.

Just guessing, but I think if the fusels are reduced enough to affect aroma and flavor that the headache effect would be reduced also.

I've often thought about popcorn, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

So how imperative is a starter?  That's the only thing holding me back right now. 
BBF date is July 18.

10 gallons, right?  If you pitch 2 yeast packets (2 Wyeast pouches (Activator - NOT propagator) or White Labs vials) you should be OK. 

That doesn't seem like enough to me.  Graham, check to be certain.

Congrats!  Now you're ready for the BJCP exam.

I'd say be prepared to tell him that the beer won't be ready in time.  You might make it, but if it's not ready do you really want to serve sub par beer?

Equipment and Software / Re: SG/Brix refractometer completely useless?

He claims that it's impossible to have an ATC refractometer measure both.

What's his reasoning?

I grew up in IA.  The screen at out drive in movie would get blown down every year.  Seems like one small town would disappear every tornado season.  I spent a memorable afternoon hiding from a tornado in a church basement after dropping acid....

If you consume cannabis, there are canaboid receptors on damaged cirrhotic liver tissue that actually reverses the damage and scarring. I'll poke around for the actual medical study and post it when I have more time

I love you, Bob!   :-*

Ingredients / Re: White Wheat Malt - Mill it?

Absolutely mill it.

I read a paper by Dr. Bill Pengelly, former head brewer at Deschutes, about how fusels can eventually age out into esters.  So hang on to the beer and hope for the best!

The Pub / Storms in the southeast

My heart goes out out to everyone killed, injured, or left homeless due to the tornadoes in the southeast.  I'm especially concerned about Keith.  A map on CNN shows a tornado hit Huntsville, where the brewery is.  Let's have some good vibes for all the people in the area and especially our brewing bro.

Yet even the roasted barley vs. chocolate malt argument is a BJCP fabrication.  The 21st century style guideline is so far off of the old 19th century origins of the styles that it ain't even funny.  What about brown malt?  What about a stout supposing to be stronger than porter?  Ugh.  On the inside, I shall not give in to the BJCP and popular beliefs to define whatever ya'll want, it's so arbitrary and historically inaccurate.  Sure, I'll judge to the BJCP 2008 guidelines and beyond, but meanwhile my soul is silently screaming at the silliness of it all.

Dave, I'm drinking beer in the 21st century, not the 19th.  I'm using a 21st century definition.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Forgot mash-out

Mash, batch sparge, boil.
 Ain't got time for the details.

Amen...Except, I double batch sparge.

Then you're wasting time that could be spent on something like drinking!  ;)
