I want to ask him what is his regimen for caring for that beard.

Just brush the old food out once in a while!  ;)

We need a "blush" emoticon!

23, I'd say.  But how "Imperial" is the porter?  If all the bigness (or the vanilla for that matter) could be attributed to bourbon, I'd leave it off the description.

The bourbon adds less that .5% ABV.

Enter it in both.

My BIL just took 2nd in 21 and 3rd in 23 with it in the Kona Brewfest.

I say I have no enzyme issues by adding the grist all at once to the hot water in the mash tun.  Pour and stir, then check the temp.

Agreed.

I'd cut both the carapils and crystal.  They'll reduce the fermentability and you don't want that in a Belgian style.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Possible Diacetyl detected

Warming the keg up might help.  Infections can also cause diacetyl.  Letting the beer ferment longer the next time would certainly help...if it really is diacetyl.  Are you certain it is?  FWIW, I've had luck reducing diacetyl in kegged beer by krausening...adding a qt. or 2 of actively fermenting wort to the beer and letting the yeast chew through the diacetyl.  Although at this point, I think I'd let it ride.

Glad we could help.  I was talking to an OR guy this weekend, the bill has an emergency clause so it takes effect right away, right?  Good news for the NHC First Round. :)

Yep, it's an emergency!

He also said it was so liberal you can sell your homebrew if you "need to"

I hope he was joking....that particular issue was tough enough to reassure legislators about.

nevermind, all I had to do was search a little.

Found Denny's Post

Unless my memory is worse than I thought, that's not mine.  Looks pretty good, though.

One legislator read a poem he'd written about homebrew.  Another one broke the law and brought a bottle of homebrew to toast with!

SB 444 passed the OR House today.  All that's left is for the governor to sign it and OR will have the best homebrew law in the US!

I don't recall going much above 2 qt./lb. but I didn't see any problems at that point that would indicate that the enzymes were too diluted.
