Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 87.9% apparent attenuation...

I just got 86.5% with 1056.  Beer tastes great.  I wouldn't worry about yours.

+1.  That strain just goes a little crazy sometimes....

Not to mention that a lot depends on your wort.  I recently got 88.1% with 1450 with a fermentable wort.

There's an app for iPhone and iPad called "Around Me" that lists restaurants and other places near wherever you are.  It's worked great for me, and I'm hoping that trend will continue in Bellevue.

I find that for rye malt to be really noticeable, it needs to be at least 15% of your total grist.  And just a word of warning....for MY tastes (obviously not everyone's), I don't care for large amounts of Munich or British yeast with rye.  YMMV.

So..... I understand there is no food included? A bunch of people drinking beer all day long on empty stomachs sounds like a highschool kegger.

There will of course be food at the banquet if you bought the whole package.  There is food in the hotel and in the nearby area around the hotel.  You're responsible for feeding yourself.  And nobody's forcing you to drink beer all day long...take a break.  Last yuear, I never drank more than a total of 4 pints in a day and I still got to try dozens of beers.

A lb. of rye won't add a lot of flavor, depending on what you want.

There are water dispensers all over the place.  We encourage people to stay hydrated with something besides the beer.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: How Full Should We Fill Our Kegs?

Still using those cobra taps, eh Denny?   ;)

Yep.  I tried to figure out an alternative, but with a small house I just don't have the space to do it any other way.

I get some satisfaction when I have exactly enough beer to fill the keg to the top.
I'm not sure how much it matters that you have any headspace in your keg.

For me, having some headspace is a necessity.  I don't keep the kegs constantly hooked up to CO2, so it's the CO2 in the headspace that gets absorbed into the beer.

I'll be thinking of my dad.

Same here.  And hoping my son gets around to calling me.

Can you bring a back pack of food/water with you?  I know some places frown upon that.

I can't think of any reason that would be a problem.

I wouldn't reuse the yeast and I'd hope that the batch the flies were in was OK.

I use a Chef's Choice 440 manual sharperner.  It's inexpensive, not fancy, and very effective.  Just last week I cut the tip of my thumb off after I used it!

I'd say maybe 2 weeks, give or take, at fridge temp.
