The Pub / Re: Sign my petition: Remove the 12% ABV cap on beer in Ohio

Bear in mind that most legislators are too busy to actually draft legislation. That's done by staffers, lobbyists, and/or constituents.

Yeah, but you need a legislator for a sponsor.  Here in OR we were lucky to have a homebrewing state senator as our sponsor.

Should. But, not necessary. There have been people signing from California, Massachusetts, Colorado, etc.

Strength in numbers!!

I'd advise you to limit it to only OH residents.  Based on my experience getting the laws changed here, OH legislators don't care what people in other states might think.

1450 should be good for that.

I assume only people from Ohio should sign.

I don't have the exact numbers at hand, but there has been huge growth in the AHA the last few years.  More than tripled in size, IIRC.

I'd rather not, just for the sake of simplicity.  But we'll discuss it among the mods.

I admit that I WAY overimbibed the last couple days.  Thank goodness I have today off to recover!

We'll let you off the hook this time Denny.  ;)  :)

I appreciate that, Ron!  ;)  I'm finding that it doesn't take nearly as much as it used to for me to wind up like this.  I think that yesterday I have maybe 4-5 beers over the course of 14 hours.  Of course, that included Delerium Noel and Duvel, but still....

I thought this year's Jubelale was really pretty good.  More hop forward than the last few years without losing the wonderful toasty malt character.

Kegging and Bottling / Conflicting Info for Bottle Conditioning

I agree with everything but the last lines about stopping the yeast and off flavors.  Your understanding is good.

IIRC, Kai's conclusion was that it's the aging.

Man, I remember that stuff.  Kinda tasted like molasses and soy sauce.

The Pub / Your favorite Christmas beers?
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:13:09 PM »
I look forward to Sierra Nevada's Celebration every Christmas. I not only stock up on theirs, but try to brew a couple batches of a "clone" of it. But the one I really wait for from Christmas to Christmas is Scaldis Noel. The bottle even looks Christmasy, with the little cabin and the sparkly red, white and blue label. I spend the first part of Christmas Eve day cleaning Dungeness crab for dinner that night, prepping Christmas dinner, cleaning the house and wrapping presents. Then, about mid afternoon, I sit down with a goblet of Noel and sip it slowly while listening to Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, and Garrison Keillor Christmas CDs. A great reward for my efforts and it really gets me into the spirit.  How about you guys? What beer do you look forward to that really makes it feel like Christmas?

Commercial Beer Reviews / Blue Moon's Proximity
« on: December 22, 2012, 01:32:09 PM »
Blue Moon's latest "crafty" beer. It's half wheat malt, half sauvignon blanc grape juice. Fairly uninspired, but inoffensive. Not worth the price tag ($8, IIRC). It tastes exactly like a mix of Blue Moon and a sauvignon blanc wine, which is what it is, so I guess that makes sense.

It could be really cool if done properly. I think I'll try to brew something like that soon.

Dogfish Head had a beer named Red and White that was a Witbier aged in Pinot casks.  It was really good.

I'd say it was really weird and somewhat drinkable.  Horses for courses....
