I imagine zero would be good.

That was my conclusion, too.

I boil maybe 70-75 min. with pils malt - my normal amount of time for just about any beer.  I've never experienced DMS from not boiling longer.

OR / Eugene OR - Learn to Homebrew Day at Oakshire Brewing
« on: September 12, 2011, 10:44:35 AM »
Learn to Homebrew Day was established by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) in 1999 to enable people interested in beer and homebrewing to learn how to brew. Learn to Homebrew Day occurs annually on the first Saturday in November, when homebrewers around the world are encouraged to learn how to brew or teach someone how to brew.  This year, on Saturday Nov. 5 from 9 AM until 5 PM, members of the Cascade Brewers Society will be demonstrating homebrewing techniques and equipment at Oakshire Brewing, 1055 Madera St. in Eugene.  Oakshire beers and Cornucopia sandwiches will be available for purchase and there will be live music.  For more information about Learn to Homebrew Day and how to begin brewing, visit the AHA website at  For more information about the local event, contact Denny Conn from the Cascade Brewers Society ( or Eriel Hoffmeier at Oakshire Brewing <>.

Other Fermentables / Re: First Cider -- Best Resources?

How long, on average, would you say it takes your cider to drop clear?  What about the time from carboy to bottle?

I do 2-3 months in primary and 6 months or so in secondary.  I look at cider as being more like wine than beer.

The Pub / Re: Kindle books

So now that we got the recs out of the way what is your opinion of the Kindle? There are other options out there and the K2 has some flaws IMO. I'm particularly enamored with the app which has further enhanced my reading.

FWIW, I recently looked at all the various e readers to get one for my wife.  I settled on the Nook 2 black and white model.  She loves it.

Cool!  I'm not familiar with that malt at all, but I'm gonna have to try to get ahold of some!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Burning Hops?
« on: September 12, 2011, 08:28:13 AM »
So I was wondering if it's possible to burn the hop residue that falls to the bottom of the kettle? 


I don't think so.  At least I've never encountered it.

Ingredients / Re: Experimental Hop X-369?

IIRC, Centennial was originally CFJ69.  There seem to be a LOT of new hop varieties under development at the moment.  We're planning a seminar on them at next summer's NHC.

How about an all Munich IPA?

Denny, the bottle says "Curacao" orange that is what ya get.

OK, that's for bittering, the trad way.  That means that the orange you're detecting is from the coriander.

Well, they have done it again. Or rather are still doing it... ;D
Avery White Rascal is a good tasting belgian wit.  There is corriander
but more pronounced is a faint after twinge of orange.  Bottle conditioned
and yes that is actual yeast you will see ....dunno how it might proliferate
in a grow attempt but that is an entire different post.

Pour is a cloudy pils color...aroma is bready belgian

Not bad at all and I will prolly be buying more of this when I find it available.
Thumbs up

Did they actually use orange, or is the "twinge of orange" from the coriander, the way it's supposed to be?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How long in the secondary?
« on: September 10, 2011, 09:46:33 AM »
Question:  If I rack to secondary today, how long can I wait before I HAVE to bottle/keg it?


General Homebrew Discussion / Re: BJCP category
« on: September 10, 2011, 09:44:01 AM »
About 12-13 years ago, a toasted coconut porter took the NHC.  I'll see if I can find out what category it was.  Maybe Gordon would know.

I have never sanitized the vanilla beans and I've never had a problem from not sanitizing.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Kitchen sink - is simple better
« on: September 09, 2011, 02:54:11 PM »
I guess I'm just saying that there's room for all kinds of recipes (and tastes), even a few complex ones.  Cheers, j

I agree completely.  Simpler isn't always better and complex isn't always better.  It's about doing whatever it takes to get the results you want.
