Oh well, even Denny had to try a few times before finally getting something passed out there in Orygun... Maybe it will be reintroduced in the new session and passed without much fanfare...otherwise we will need to get the letters and emails started to get some information flowing to allow the homebrews to do the same at some of the 2013 events.

Not to brag, but the law got passed the first time around without a single vote against it in any committee or legislative body.

Only 2 more weeks til my garage/brewery has my furniture out of it and I can brew again!  Assuming I remember how!

Gotcha.  When I had done it in the past, I had added them to the runoff vessel.  Will just throw them in when I pull the bag.

Re: the Cali common, the FWH REPLACES the 60 minute addition?  So a total of two ounces NBs in it, FWH and 20 minute?

To me, FWH tastes like a 20 min,l addition.  I always use a 60 min. addition along with FWH.

Last dumb question, I am making jamils cc which is VERY malty.  Will I get similar ibu s from a FWH as a 60min addition?  I want to make sure I have enough bitterness to stand up to it.

My experience is that the IBU will measure more but taste like less.  Since we taste beer and aren't usually concerned with how it measures in our glass, I'd say no, you won't get similar bitterness.

I wanna make a wheat beer but I'm out of Pils. How do you think 50/50 wheat and Weyerman Munich 1 would work?

Pretty much a dunkleweizen.

Equipment and Software / Re: Curtain around brew stand

I would imagine the exhaust is going to draw the curtain in towards the flame.

Could be scary if something goes wrong.

Yeah, I agree.  Maybe I'm just a Nervous Nellie, but it sounds dangerous.

Equipment and Software / Upgrading Equipment vs Learning Your System
« on: November 13, 2012, 11:47:47 AM »
Upgrading can be fun though. I get quite a bit of satisfaction from building and working things out but changing things or the sake of changing things is pointless.

That's kinda what I meant about having a system that fits your style.  I HATE building equipment and making changes.  I'd rather spend the time brewing.

OK, bottling today at some point...what is the best way to get the bottles ready?  I've heard of baking at 350 for 2 hours and of running in dish washer.....  :-\

Assuming they're clean,just sanitize with some Starsan or iodophor.

Sounds like this could be more than a part-time thing if you're brewing up some quality product...which I know you are. Although you'de probably want to utilize a bigger system to become profitable and grow the business.

Screw the beer...what's the ice cream like?  ;)

Hey now!  8)

Priorities, Ron, priorities!  ;)

Years ago I came to the conclusion that the brewer makes the beer, the equipment doesn't.  That's not to diss anyone who ises a fancy system.  That's a personal preference, not a requirement for good beer.  After all these years and all these brews (somebody cue "Still Crazy After All These Years"!), I'm still happy with my incredibly down scale Cheap'n'Easy system.  It fits my style of brewing, I make good beer and I have fun doing it.  Those should be the considerations.

Manufacturer recommends 5 m in. before the end of boil.  One tab is good for 12 gal., so 1/2 tab is fine for a 5 gal. batch.  There's a lot of confusion about this because so many retailers repackage Whirlfloc with inaccurate instructions.

I doubt it really makes a difference, but Kerry's packaging recommends 10 min for Whirlfloc T and 15-20 min for Whirlfloc BWS. http://crosby-baker.com/index.php/processing-aids/kettle-coagulants.html

The BWS is horrible stuff to work with, BTW. Well worth the small premium for the tablets.

Thanks, Sean!
