Ingredients / Citra, Amarillo & Simcoe
« on: June 08, 2012, 09:30:29 AM »
I think I must be one of the few homebrewers who doesn't really care for Citra.  Just too weirdly fruity for my tastes.  I know of least a couple commercial brewers who fell the same way.

You can d/l a \help file compatibility program.  Took me about 3 min. to d/l and install.

What do you hope to get from them?

IMO, it will be quite a noticeable difference.  Pils malt (Belgian or otherwise) will be crisp and light.  Golden Promise will have a much more pronounced malt profile and a sweeter flavor.  IMO.

Yeah, the "pils v pale" thing has been done to death. I'm trying to figure out the difference between Belgian pale malt and UK pale malt.

Oops, sorry!  I think the difference between most UK and Belgian pale malts is going to be negligible.  IIRC, Golden Promise is kilned a bit darker and has a maltier flavor.

Let's go with a Brown Ale, shall we? Perhaps from the Noti region of Oregon...

Good choice!  One of my favorite recipes.

All Grain Brewing / oxidation risk with batch sparging
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:28:16 AM »
I've batch sparged over 420 batches.  If oxidation was an issue, I would have noticed it by now and changed my technique.  When BYO published that article, there was a firestorm over on the NB forum with people challenging the article.  The other thing to keep in mind is that the guy who wrote the article had never batch sparged, so he had no empirical evidence.  Book learnin' is great, but real life experience trumps it every time.

What kind of update does Promash need?  It does everything I need it to do seamlessly.

Based on the aroma of burning hops, I think I'd skip it.  They're harsh and acrid.

IMO, it would be rather  like smoking the food over lawn clippings.
I'd stick with oak or fruitwood.

Lawn clippings...I suspect this is the correct answer....

Try some warm water and a box of baking soda.  Remarkably effective at removing odors.

The rye will be fine without any additional mash steps.

Well, yeah.....but what qualities are you looking for?

Slight aroma and / or flavor of whatever hop i put in there.

Hmmmm...what hop(s) would go with chicken?  Guess it depends on what you do with the chicken.  If ya go the traditional BBQ route, probably something hearty...maybe even Fuggles.  OTOH, if you were doing a "light" chicken with OO, lemon, garlic, maybe something more like an Amarillo or even Summit.  Damn you, now you've got me curious!  :)

Yummy hop goodness of course!  :))

I'll be smoking some chicken tenders this weekend and I'll try this on a few.

And I'm wondering just what kind of result he hopes to see/taste.  What is it that you hope the hops will add?
