Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Duvel
« on: April 09, 2011, 08:38:42 AM »
I just found it at our local Costco for $7.99 a bottle.  I bought a case.  But I sure don't get bubblegum from it.

Sure I will.  Several years back, Ommegang held a contest.  You described the perfect beer and they'd brew it.  The winner was Noel Blake, beer geek and writer from Portland.  I can't find his original description now, but it was flowery and beautiful.  The beer was such a hit that instead of a one off, they kept making it.  Ommegang describes it as a blend of a strong malty ale and a true Belgian kriek.

When I kick a keg of any lager, it's a bummer since I have to wait a year to make more.

The Pub / Duvel at Costco
« on: April 09, 2011, 08:29:04 AM »
Walked in to the local Costco the other day and there were cases and cases of Duvel stacked up.  $7.99 for a 750 ml. bottle.  I bought one to make sure it was in good condition (perfect!) and went back yesterday for a case.

I like it.  Do you know the story behind it?

Don't dump it yet if you don't have to.  Wait til you're sure one way or the other.

Ingredients / Re: tomato

Is there a chance the tomato would drop the pH so low that the yeast couldn't deal with it?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Is This A Problem?

Yeast should be pitched into wort as soon as it is cooled in order to avoid infections and off flavours. You might get lucky, but are fairly likely to pick up an infection.

I wouldn't go as far as "fairly likely".  With good sanitation, a day or two should be no problem at all.

Yep, that's all you need to do.  Same yeast is fine.

A fifth keg, a sour baltic porter from 2006...actually tasted quite good.  So I am calling it "18th century London porter" now, and it is a classic.   ;)

Now that's pragmatic!

I would, of course, still have to rack the beer to a bottling bucket if bottling directly from the fermenter (though I usually keg first & counter-pressure bottle).  

Yeah, that's a different situation.

Just call me Cpt. Obvious.  lol

This was addressed by John Palmer in Ask the Experts.  If you're an AHA member you can read his entire answer at http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/lets-brew/ask-the-experts/john-palmer . Here's an excerpt...

"Therefore I, and Jamil and White Labs and Wyeast Labs, do not recommend racking to a secondary fermenter for ANY ale, except when conducting an actual second fermentation, such as adding fruit or souring."

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Cervesa Recipes?
« on: April 08, 2011, 08:22:16 AM »
Oh i figure your were kidding. I was not offened by it.

I got the recipe from 200 clone recipe book.

I coppied it almost to the t but i upped the malt amount and added extra corn sugar but it seems a little dark for what i was going for.

I will let you know how it turns out in a month  :) and i plan on subbing in rice or corn maybe even both and i will tell you how that goes to.

If anyone has flavor additive other then hops, malt, and specialty grains let me know

Take a look at my Cream Swill recipe.  It uses rice solids and does a very small mash with 6 row barley and flaked corn.  I think it may be just what you're looking for.
