Not sure what I was thinking asking should I brew my own...of course I should brew my own!

If you decide to brew my recipe, I'd advise you not to age it much.  I prefer it when it's not much more than a couple months old.

Thanks Denny.  I saw that you mentioned  it didn't benefit from extended aging in Zymurgy, which is good because I'm not the most patient person!  What would you say is a minimum amount of time for when the beer is ready?  I let most of my ales ferment 3-4 weeks before I keg.  I set the keg to serving psi and let it sit for about a week before I start enjoying them, so a total of 4-5 wks w/ my ales.  This will be the first big gravity beer that I will be brewing.  Thanks!

That should be in the ballpark.  Let your own tastes be your guide.

Heat doesn't cause skunking...light does.

I'm using Tapatalk on my iPad and find it's much easier for seeing what's new.

Same here except I use it on my iphone.  It's really easy to use, but is there a way to modify a post?

Not that I know of, and I can't seem to quote a post, either. But it is easier for findability.

To quote a post, just tap on it and select "quote" from the menu that comes up.

Haven't found a way to modify a post yet.

All Grain Brewing / Re: NHC Second Rounders...Batch or Fly Sparge?
« on: July 07, 2012, 08:23:39 AM »
The fallacy in all of this is that sparging is the factor that made a difference.  There is a lot more to the brewing process than sparging, and saying that because a batch that was sparged one way or another achieved success because of the sparge method overlooks all the other variables involved.  Pretty much all you can conclude is that the sparge method wasn't detrimental to the beer.

For my tastes in alt, I'd double the bittering.  But I'm a fan of Zum Uerige, which is a pretty bitter alt.  I'd also drop the aromatic and maybe the caramunich, or cut the caramunich in half.  Use 1 oz. of roasted barley for color rather than black patent.  Carafa or Sinamar would be better choices for color, IMO.

Before you do anything, tell us about the recipe and technique.  It may be finished, not stuck.

will the vienna be able to convert the rye, crystal and wheat adequately?

Assuming the rye and wheat are malt and not flaked, they should convert themselves.

That's what I'd do.  I'd add the Centennial as FWH (I've done this a few times and it's been good) and then skip the 20.

Anyone else wondering how sweet this beer will be with all Vienna and 10% Crystal?  I have no experience to question this, just a feeling.  I've done all Munich before and it's been good but would all Vienna be sweeter?  If that's what you're after, go for it.

I find Vienna to be pretty dry.  I don't think it would be too sweet.  It's how you use it.  You can get malty without sweetness.

I'm not sure you would want to use a high alpha hop like magnum as FWH.  I've only done it once, but I believe it is best to use lower AAU's.  Move them to your bittering addition to get the IBU's where you want them.

Otherwise, I think the rest looks good.

Alpha doesn't matter for FWH, but flavor does.  IME, Magnum is not a good flavor or aroma hop.

I heard NHC 2014 was going to be in Volcano Village, Hawaii.

Fine with me!  You're the organizing committee!  ;)

I agree that it's likely a non issue in this case, but I'd avoid galvanized even in this situation if possible.

Ohh ohh I know... but I can't tell... they might throw me in the river.

Hmm, throw you in the river?  N'awlins would be a rockin' NHC location

How many clubs are in the area?  How many volunteers could they get?  Have they ever run a first round comp for the AHA to see they're able to do the second round?  Many BJCP judges in the area?
