All Grain Brewing / stuck fermentation

What was your total grist, and what was your mash temp/time?  Flaked wheat can not self convert so if you did not have enough enzymes in the mash you would need an extra long mash to get good conversion.


If the entire grist was flaked wheat, there was no conversion.

gotta be the utilikilt. very utilitarian and kilty.

I've always imagined Denny brewing (and most often existing) in a utilikilt.

Despite your fantasy ;) I usually don't even wear shorts when brewing in warm weather.  I'm extremely clumsy and I've hurt myself way too many times.  I always wear long pants and closed shoes when I brew.  After the boil, when it's down to chilling, xfer, and cleanup, I'll put on shorts and Tevas if it's a warm day.

If every day is Saturday to a dog then every day is beer day to a brewer.

Denny, I had three for you. Rouge dead guy, elysian bette blanche tripple and Bridgeport alchemy.  The tripple was top notch

You're a good man!  Glad to hear I enjoyed them!

Going Pro / Starting a brewery

What if I got a 7 barrel system, brewed one house beer, then supplemented with a craft beer menu?

Doing the math gives me 57 pints/day with one brew session per month.  I could get away with one fermenter and one bright tank, right?  We would not be making much money on the house brew, but it would create a draw, which is really what we are going after.  I think this would make us less dependent on the brewing side of the restaurant, cut our costs on ingredients and labor, and help us focus more on quality rather than quantity.  Sound like a decent business model?

Also, I discovered I would have a 90 minute commute rather than 1 hour...yikes! :o...however it would still be worth it if I got to practice on professional equipment and became a licensed brewer - as long as I only need to make the commute every few days, I'd be quite happy.

I think you're fooling yourself is you think having one house beer will be a draw.

I'm doing my best to pay it forward.

That's been my theory for 15 years, Diane.  So many people have given me so much help, it deserves to be passed on.

I also cooked a pancake the other day and when I flipped it over the burn marks kind of looked like Denny doing a batch sparge. Freaky

If it looked freaky, then it was me.  Did ya sell it on eBay?  ;)

So, I've got a friend who runs a gluten free brewery in Portland called Harvester Brewing.  A couple months ago he emailed me to get tips on brewing a dubbel.  Today I saw this on Facebook.....

At that price I would totally use it!  Even if it was only a little more than the amazon ones I'd give it a try.  Maybe if I emailed them they'd do bulk beans . . . I'm not going to though. :)

Hey, you're going to Hawaii...want me to hook ya up?  ;)
Is that possible?  I wouldn't say no to that!

If you're going to be on the big island at all, let me know and I'll see if she's going to be around.

I'd guess hop choice and water profile.
