IMO, the best way to get chocolate flavor in beer is with extract, like Rogue does with their excellent chocolate beers.  Starkay White is about the best brand of chocolate extract around, if you can source it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Old Style Bavarian Lager

Thanks for answering my questions! I have three books I reference too, but the Lager process is "vague". Dave Miller's: Homebrewing Guide; Palmer: How To Brew; Papazian: Complete Joy of Brewing.

I ordered Gregory Noonan's book: New Brewing Lager Beer, is this a good reference for the Lager brewing?

Miller's book is so far out of date that I'd just skip it.  Palmer's is excellent and kind of considered the "bible" of contemporary homebrewing.  Papazian has a great, friendly writing style and is generally good, but Palmer should be all you need.  Noonan's book is very technical and aimed more at commercial brewing that homebrewers, really.  And be sure to pay attention to what majorvices posted.  Lager brewing takes more skill, equipment and time than ale brewing, so it may not be what you want to jump into to begin brewing.

Is Marzen and Bock the same type of Lager?

Nope, not even in the same ballpark.

Also, "Pull That Weaze" would be a good name for a game show.

Or a rock band!

I would like to brew with her as well. Sounds like she is pretty easy!  :P

Way to go, Keith....I'd been waiting for somebody to say that!   ;D

If your sanitation is good, it shouldn't be a problem, at least for a little while.

...or just get a couple of these guys and you'll be good to go.  ;D

...and you could even have cure some bacon when they fatten up.  :D



I have to sneak in some bacon once or twice a year.  Not only would my cardiologist kill me, but ever since my wife saw "Babe", there's been no bacon on the house!  ;)

hmmm,  ever get 2 sacks of grain in that thing?

Nope, but we haven't tried!  Maybe you could...here's a pic from a typical Old Stoner brew.  10 gal. of 1.100+ OS, plus 12 gal. of a 1.60ish 2nd runnings beer.

Real well.  We have quite a few top level legislators on our side and legislation is being drafted.  We just need top make sure it's includes everything we'd like to see.  There a a couple kinda sticky issues to deal with (homebrew in licensed establishments, for one) but I'm confident that we'll get something though early in the legislative session.
