General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Zymurgy Top-Ranked Beers
« on: June 19, 2013, 03:43:38 PM »
All of the lists look the same to me, every year. I wonder what it will take to shake it up.

More people who have different tastes who vote?

Taking nothing away from the quality of the beers on the list, but it is kind of a most famous beers list, isn't it?

And most likely they're famous due to the quality.  I don't see your point.

I'm getting excited to actually meet you mooks face to face for the first time and enjoy tipping a few with ya!

For some reason, people are a lot less impressed after they actually meet me....;)

All Grain Brewing / Rather than doing a decoction...
« on: June 18, 2013, 06:08:11 PM »
Would I achieve a similar flavor by pulling a gallon or so of first runnings and boiling down to, say, 50% volume? (like some people do with wee heavies)

Nope, not the same, even assuming that decoction adds flavor.

Had to change my family vacation plans and buy a last minute flight, which I got for $132 bucks but have to fly in Wednesday. Anyone be around philly Wednesday night?
I get in Tuesday too.  Maybe we should recreate our Seattle lunch? :) Except this time I won't have to run off and can actually relax and have more than one beer.

I get in Tues. around 5 PM.

sounds really good. looks a lot like my porter recipe, except I think I didn't use any roasted/black barley. the munich is really the bomb in this style. I mean I love munich malt anyway, put it in almost everything, but this style particularly really benefits from the rich fruity maltiness.
+1.  Munich is very underrated in porter and stout.  Looks great !  I made a "bourbon barrel" milk stout a few months back that came out great, and I used the chips and bourbon the same way.

Special B is also great in a porter.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: using half of a white labs vial
« on: June 17, 2013, 03:49:40 PM »
A local brewpub used Ringwood for 300 or so pitches. That still made beer that tasted like it was made with Ringwood.

I know other strains are said to drift quickly.

Yeah, but when you start with Ringwood, how would you know if it went bad?  ;)

Joe Sr. How many generation is it? I had read somewhere when I first started yeast washing that more then 7 generations old could give you a different yeast aspect. Have you ever found that your strain has changed over time?

You can't really set a number of reuses.  You need to pay attention to what the yeast looks and smells like and how it performed the last time you used it.

What are you eating majorvices?

Lots! ;)

I eat pretty healthy. Very little fast food. It's the beer and second helpings that are killing me!

I'm still in pretty good shape though. For  a brewer.



Looks like you lost a few pounds of hair!

General Homebrew Discussion / Lagering Time
« on: June 14, 2013, 04:35:46 PM »
I think that, much like a shark riding on an elephant's back, it is something to watch out for but not necessarily anything to worry about.

Yeah, but what if it was a shark with frickin' lasers?
Usually you can't really tell when a thread goes awry but in this case it's nice to see the exact spot where the wheels fell off.

Anything to help!

All Grain Brewing / mash efficiency question
« on: June 14, 2013, 03:32:24 PM »
Crush til you're scared.

Also, try batch sparging.  If your efficiency increases, you'll know it's something in your lautering equipment or technique.

Good point Joe. Most people consume calorie intensive foods with thier beer. Then blame the beer for the belly. My eating habbits are very clean and I still have a 30 inch waist in spite of all the beer I drink.

Mind if I ask how old you are?

Ah, I see above!

Sorry if i scare you. My metabolism is young, I can eat garbage all day and sit on the couch with brew all night, without gaining any weight. I have been told the only way I can gain weight, besides lifting weights "Like thats going to happen," is to get older. 150lbs and not yet thirty ;)
Your time will come, son.  Your time will come.

Indeed!
