The only thing steam powered worth having is an Aeroplane.

How did you know that was one of my all time favorite songs and albums?

Sorry I don't right now.  I can fit 4 cornies on the floor and 2 more on the hump ( when I build a taller collar ) if that helps.

It's a start!  Thanks!

Chocolate extract

All those creative ideas above and Denny goes simple  ;)

Not simple, pragmatic

Hey, Rogue has won MANY awards for their chocolate beer and they use extract.  Seems like a pretty good endorsement.

-1. Northern Exposure is the best show ever.

My wife and I were HUGE NE fans.

I've been looking at getting a freezer for fermenting.  Any idea what the interior dimensions are?

Rye IPA again.

Mrs. Punatic posed an interesting question this evening, "Why do you enjoy being on the AHA forum so much?  Are they old friends from the mainland?"

Aside from Jeffy, I don't think I've ever met any of you vis-a-vis.

That is so like SWMBO to ask something like that. 

Hmmm...  Beats the she-it outta me.  Reckon I need to ruminate on it a while.


Not old friends.

Best advice I can offer is to seek information concerning career changes at places other than a beer forum. :D

Maybe a Ouija board.

I like the way that looks. I'm glad you kept the aroma hops too.  ;)

I like it, too.

Schumacher is made with all light munich and has a lot of hop aroma. Zum Uerige is made with pilsner and specialty malts and has very little hop aroma. Most people in the US have only had the latter. Both are valid, but the former will be unfamiliar.

I've actually had both and far prefer the Zum Uerige.  I guess my preference shows in my comments.

That said, IMO you really need to have some aroma hops if you are making a dusseldorf alt, from my experience and opinion. Can't believe Denny would say you don't need any aroma hops. I'm pretty sure he adds aroma hops to his Wheaties.  ;)

Wheaties, yes.  Altbier, nope!

If I use a blend of Munich/Vienna for the majority of the base malt, won't I be getting close to marzen territory?  Maybe this is ok; I guess there are many base malt iterations for alt.

We used a Munich/Vienna combo for the alt we brewed at Beer Camp, if that means anything to you.  The pilot brewer there seemed to think that was the way to go.  I agree with Keith on the lower fermentation temp, but disagree on the need for aroma hops.  Or at least very much of them.

You could do all kinds of stuff with GM yeast.

You could make a yeast that creates THC, called "Denny's REAL Favorite 420". ;)

Oooh, ooooh.....what a great idea!   ;D  ;)

Hey, we're supposed to be in a meeting now!   ;)
