No no, I am on the fat kick :)

Are you growing out your hair, too?

I just can't believe you never had the grassy flavors from dry hopping cold. Really? I do agree that it is best to get as much yeast out of the beer as possible before dry hopping, because as the yeast drops out it grabs some of the yeast with it. But, without a doubt, dry hopping in the 60-70 degree range works best for me.

I"m going by my process of kegging the beer with dry hops, then throwing it in the fridge.  Either no grassy flavors, or I like them so I don't notice them.  :)  I'm basing my new practice of trying to remove as much yeast as possible before dry hopping on Stan's article in the latest Zymurgy.  I recently dry hopped and IPA with Simcoe and Amarillo and got a weird, almost rose scented aroma.  Not what I expected from that hop combo.  That's the kind of interaction between yeast and hops that Stan talked about.  When I read it I realized that the beer still had a fair amount of yeast in it when I dry hopped.

I can't recall ever noticing negative effects from dry hopping at cold temps.  However, my new procedure is to cold crash before dry hopping (maybe even xfer to secondary) to minimize interaction between the yeast and the hops that could result in undesirable flavors.

YES!  "Session IPA" should be banned as a phrase.

Amazon also has Palmer's "Water"

I'll save you some money. Here's John Palmer's approach to water: Read everything Martin Brungard wrote in Bru'n Water, ignore it, then add a bunch of chalk to every beer.

I think it kinda depends on your definition of "work"  Ferment wort, yes.  Make good beer, probably not.

And that depends on you definition of "good."

+1.060!

What the hell is an "imperial pale ale"?  An IPA?

To me Bud is always just too sweet. I don't know if that's the acetaldehyde or not.

I agree with you.  When we got to American lagers in our BJCP study group, I decided that for Bud I'd sit on my deck on a hot day and taste it.  Figured that would be the perfect setting.  I couldn't drink more than half a bottle.  It was just too sickly sweet.  I got a glass of water and decided I preferred that.

should this happen again, you should remember that there is no problem with leaving that wort safely tucked away under an air lock for 24ish hours until you ARE able to get yeast.

However, brewers yeast and bakers yeast are the same species of yeast. While the provenance of the bakers yeast is likely not as perfectly kept as a particular strain of yeast for brewing it'll be fine.

That is very interesting. I've always assumed baker's yeast would never work, but this makes total sense.

Also time of used equipment is over.

Just give it a year or two. . .

Yep.  John Maier said to me a year ago that in 3 years you'll be able to buy used brewing equipment really cheap.

Holy cow! Four different people actually listened to me. I think that's the first time that's ever happened. . .

Don't get used to it.....;)

seems like a few of you are not very well functioning drunks. Just sayin'.

Yeah, I'm trying to figure this out myself. Brew day is usually 5 to 6 hours....A beer an hour can't hurt you... well at least it doesn't affect me too much. The only thing that I ever forget on a regular basis is whirlfloc. I have started to add a 10-15 minute hop addition, so I add my tab to that baggie.

If I drink 5-6 beers, I've had it for the day.  Especially since I begin brewing between 7-9 Am usually.

Haha... I usually have a stout with breakfast, which happens during the mash. By the time the boil is over, I MIGHT have two more beers in me. Most do get drank after the boil. I don't know. If I'm doing something productive outside of work, I'm usually doing it while having a beer.

I used to be able to do that.  No more.
