And how much does the temperature of the diacetyl rest matter? Would it be bad if the room was 75F instead of 65F? Or would that even matter since the initial stages fermentation is complete?

The purpose of increasing the temp is to make the yeast more active to consume the diacetyl, so the exact temp doesn't matter much.

Should be OK, although I wouldn't recommend leaving it in the bucket for more than 4-5 weeks total.  I have to admit, though, that this is one of the few circumstances where I use a secondary.  Probably OK without it, but old habits die hard.

How often is a diacetyl rest necessary?

I'd guess that maybe only about 10% of my lagers need a d rest.

Ron, Would you be so kind as to post your recipe for that wonderful German pilsner you made earlier this year?  I bragged on it a bit earlier in the thread.

Sure.  I'll post it tonight.

Remember to put it in the wiki and link to it here!

General Homebrew Discussion / Why aren't NHC scores published?
« on: June 26, 2012, 01:09:55 PM »
quick question.....Why aren't NHC scores published?  Maybe it is the competitor in me but I would like to know what a beer scored not just that it got 1st place.

Maybe because it's nobody's business but the brewer's.

Equipment and Software / And I thought the brewmagic was expensive

Probably more than you'd think.  They've been around for many years selling expensive toys to people with too much money.

All Grain Brewing / melanoidin in an amber?
« on: June 26, 2012, 08:25:52 AM »
I just put .25 lbs in an amber recently, and I think it tastes quite nice. It was a 3 gallon batch. I'm pretty sure Denny uses it in his Waldo Lake Amber as well.

I use carared, not melanoidin.  The 2 seem very different to me.  I use. couple lb. in 5 gal.

We have a potential location, but we're a ways from announcing it yet.

It was an outstanding conference this year, and it was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  I'm still in the Seattle area visiting family.  Got a 6 Hour drive to home tomorrow.

Alton Brown brewed an extract batch on Good Eats.  Don't know if that counts.

Unless he's kept brewing and has done more than one batch for TV, I don't think I could call him a homebrewer.  I'd call him a personality who demonstrated how to brew beer on  TV.

Equipment and Software / Re: Tired of crappy therm and hydrometer
« on: June 21, 2012, 11:40:51 AM »
I bought one of these thermometers to give it a try.  They claim:
"Each thermometer is tested and calibrated in our exclusive triple accredited/registered ISO/IEC 17025:2005, A2LA accredited laboratory against equipment whose calibration is traceable to NIST"

That looks like the one I use.

Questions about the forum? / Re: Can't log on
« on: June 21, 2012, 09:21:22 AM »
For some reason last night I couldn't log in on my password; it kept telling me that the password was wrong.  I had to reset the password to log back in.  Were there account changes that I missed?  Is there an expiration on passwords?

Nope and nope, but beyond that I have no idea what happened.

Session IPA = Pale Ale?

Yep, AFAIAC.  Or "Extra Hoppy Pale Ale".
