Beer Recipes / Re: Critique my amber ale recipe

What does adding roasted barley before sparge do?

Makes it so it contributes color but virtually no flavor.  Also doesn't affect mash pH.

I like it, but video feed of something like Club Night sounds cruel. 
"Check out this awesome beer you can't taste!"    ;D

I think maybe BN does broadcast club night...not too sure.  I'm also not too sure how interesting it would be to watch it if you're not there.  There's really not much other than the banquet/awards and the seminars that would be of interest.  The banquet is already covered, and I really doubt the seminars will ever be broadcast live.  Disclaimer: just my opinion, not necessarily that of the AHA.

Looks pretty good to me.

The AHA is not planning that, but the Brewing Network does video feeds of the awards banquet.  There really isn't that much else that could be used.

What does dale earnhardt and pink floyd have in common?

There last hit was the wall

That's funny and just so right. I hear people praise PF, yet all I ever hear played is The Wall. Did they ever really have another hit? ;)
How old are you?  for those of us in our fifties who grew up listening to real rock & roll Pink Floyd was very cutting edge.

If they were so "cutting edge", then how come I only ever hear one song played on most music stations?

Great music doesn't necessarily get played on the radio.  That's not an accurate measure.

The Pub / AHA joke thread

I'm nominating the Red Riding Hood joke for thread best. That is hilarious. :D
And here I thought it would have been better posted in the "idiotic social commentary" thread.  It started off fine, but maybe if it had been 1/4 as long it would have continued to be amusing

Agreed.  I kept trying to find the joke there.

So is anyone re-considering their choice to run for NHC governing committee?  Sounds like a fun but contentious couple of years ahead.

When I was first elected to the GC, pretty much all we were allowed to do was mess with the bylaws of the GC.  Gary started asking us for ideas and acting on them, and they worked!  This forum is one result of that.  That kind of progress makes up for the headaches.

Going Pro / How hard is it to be a pro brewer?
« on: March 10, 2012, 12:49:57 PM »
Can you share with me where these great brewpubs are with great food you speak of?  Id like to try them out.
Grizzly Peak in Ann Arbor.  Hop Cat in Grand Rapids (they brew 3 barrels at a time, but have about 40 guest taps so they are also a beer baar).  Those come to mind quickly.  Oh, yeah, Redwood Lodge in Flint.

Pelican Pub in Oregon.

Revolution in Chicago.

There are a few production breweries that have really good food, but you wanted brewpubs.

Always wanted to go to Pelican Pub.  I have family in Chi-town so I will definitely check out Revolution, Thanks!

Here in OR great food at brewpubs is the norm.

I saw one comment on the first page that said "you will make most of you $$ of food", (didnt read the 5 pgs in between) so I generalized...but I agree that food is an entirely different biz then just selling beer. 

As a craft beer enthusiast though, I could care less about the food as long as the beer is good and you have some decent apps.  I like having a few beers and a few different appetizers on a Friday or Saturday...Never have I have gone to a brewpub because of their food.  For me, its food second.  Its all about your money maker, the beer man!


I really think that you're in the minority.

Based on my experience, yes, it should.

I think first of all you shouldn't have boiled the blueberries.  Not only will you lose flavor, you might set the pectins and end up with blueberry jelly beer.

Wheat has about the same potential as barley IIRC.  Around 36 ppg.  At 75% efficiency, that gets you 27 points for each lb. in each gal.  Get out a pencil and paper and take it from there.

That's fine, I just want to know which round is having the problems?  I'll bug PJ.

Yeah, he'll have to tell you.  It may not be as dire as the original email he sent out made it sound.

How do you keep the tops from burning?  I'm liking the wood idea, at least for now.

Take a look under the burners...looks like baking sheets there.

I'm sure it couldn't hurt, but I don't know if the budget is there for it.  Also, it wouldn't solve the problem of having enough judges for the entries.  AFAIK, the PNW region is struggling to find enough judges as it is.
Isn't there a $750 x $10+ increase in income from having a new region?
Yes, but much of that $7500 goes to actually hosting the event - cups, printing, food for judges, etc, let alone paying for a person to help Janis.

Denny, are you talking about the first round or the second round?  As far as I know there are no shortages for the second round, and we are sending a bunch of people down to Portland for the first round.
