I figured you'd be heavy into lagers at this time of year, chumley.

Ingredients / Re: Palmer Spreadsheet Error

Martin, I've been looking for pickling lime with no luck.  Where do you get it?  A grocery store?  That's where I've been looking.

I've seen at it our regular grocery stores around here.  In the section with sugar/flour/spices and such.

Thanks.  I'll keep looking.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Some basic knowledge help, please.

As a batch sparger, I stir often and pretty strongly.  I'd be a prime candidate for HSA, yet I've never experienced it.

The Pub / Re: How low can you go?

I'd say Fat Tire is about as low as I'll go.  I don't judge others by what they drink...if you like, drink it...it's OK with me.  But I'll drink water before I'll drink a NAIL.

The Pub / Re: "No refusal" DUI checkpoints could be coming to Tamp

There is another way. People take the responsibility not to drive impaired. Then this discussion wouldn't exist.

This is true here and of so many things...if only there was personal responsibility.  Of course, we're dealing with humans here.

Thanks for your thoughtful post.  You raise some really good points.

Just completed my first brew of 2011...a dunkel, kind of a cross between Munich and Czech.  Exceeded both my OG and volume expectations for 88% efficiency.  I was shooting for 5.5 gal. at 1.056 and got 5.75 gal. at 1.062. Hope that's a harbinger for the rest of the year!

To Denny: Delete offending post, not me altogether ;D

 

The world would be a duller place if I deleted YOU!  :)  I'm not deleting anything at this time, and I hope that no one gives me any reason to.

I agree...delete me as necessary.

No deletion, no thread locking...yet.  As long as everyone respects the rules, I'll respect your right to post.

Please keep this to the original point, and its legality and morality.  We're drifting into some dangerous territory.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Can I brew Ales at ambient temps in 50's
« on: January 02, 2011, 01:28:05 PM »
Nothing wrong with choosing the style you brew based on ambient conditions.  People have been doing that for years.

I absolutely agree...that's why I brew lagers in the winter.

There's no problem fermenting ales in the 50s...I routinely ferment my alt at 52F (or even a bit less) with WY1007.  That same yeast would make a great APA or AIPA.  But when you say "Belgian tripel ingredients", to me that includes the yeast, since that is just about the key ingredient in a tripel.

[It might be an interesting experiment to try Belgian Triple ingredients with the 1728, which is very alcohol tolerant.  I have no idea how it would turn out; might be great or might suck big time.  I would only do that if (like me) you take a very casual attitude about brewing to style.

It would have virtually none of the esters or phenolics that identify  beer as Belgian.  It isn't so much about hitting a style as brewing what you intended to brew.
