Well this is the first time I post anythin on a forum.
I don't know how to insert pictures, but I have plenty of it.
I just have this img funny symbol without prompt...

You can't post pics directly.  You have to host them somewhere than put a link to the pics in your post.

Very tempting Denny!

I kinda sorta remember some breweries having a couple of rooms that they rent? Or was that just a dream?

A couple of the Mc's rent rooms.  They take old buildings and refurbish them into funky hotel kinda things with breweries, distilleries, movie theaters, bowling alleys...http://mcmenamins.com/Hotels .  Like I said, not the best beer you'll ever drink, but a fun atmosphere.

I think I've heard of negative effects of StarSan on AL, but I can't find anything now.  To be safe, I'd email the manufacturer.  They've always been responsive and helpful when I had a question.

+ a billion for Hair of the Dog.  Avoid McMenamin's unless you just want to see cool funky buildings.  The beer is second rate.

I'd go for at least .8:1 BU:GU or maybe higher.  I've read that stickes have late or dry hop additions often, so you might want to give that a go.  But I agree, you've got a lot of latitude.

Kai...I interperet your runoff chart to show that equal runoffs produce the best efficiency. right?
But anything between 30-70% batch sparge ratio gives only 1% less efficiency. Not anything to worry abuot.

Agreed.  I find that if I'm within a gal. or so there's not enough difference to matter.

Well....I don't detest "all" of Rogue's beers, just most of them. The Morimoto Imperial pilsner is a dandy beer, and I can stomach Brutal Bitter once a while when I have a taste for a sweet ale. ;)

The worst, though, is "Dead Guy Ale", which I think is actually billed as an alt.  I do detest that beer. I dislike their Irish lager as well.

I used to be a fan of the Al K recipe, but I had a series of disappointing string of beers with it when I changed Munich malts (unwillingly, DWC malt was discontinued). I should give that a try again sometime.

Dead Guy is called a maibock, but I know that John realizes it's not.  But Dead Guy does for Rogue what Fat Tire does for NB....allows them to make some other really great beers.

Funny you like the Impy pils....for me, that's one that's too sweet.

I went to a party last year where the "guards" were ordered to card everyone. I showed them my AARP card.

Nice!  Now I know what mine is good for!

Couldn't you have just kilned some of your base malt though?  Assuming you could get the fire started by rubbing two sticks together.

Why, I oughta.....;)

I've been a long-term fan of Al Korzonas' Alt recipe that is 89% Munich malt and 11% Aromatic malt with a big charge of Spalt hops at 90 minutes. 

That was the recipe that got me to go all grain!

I stumbled over this a little while ago.
http://www.tastybrew.com/brews/view/18

I was actually looking for Alt with no crystal because right now I only have a little Pilsner and Munich malt. The Alts I've made before used about 5% of Caramunich.

That's the old recipe.  These days I use no crystal only Munich and pils malts and Sinamar for color.
