It's likely the hearing will be live online.  It's tomorrow, 2/10 at 3 PM.  If you're interested in watching, go to http://www.leg.state.or.us/listn/ and pick Capitol Hearing Room B.

Denny, do you sanitize the bag?

Yeah, I put it in a bowl of water in the microwave for a few minutes.  I'm not sure why I do it that way, since I always have StarSan around at the point I'll be dry hopping!  Either way is fine, but I definitely recommend sanitizing the bag.

GREAT idea, Tom!  I'd bet it's an extract recipe.
It might be, but that's fine.  The article says the Obama's paid for the equipment . . . I want to know what the setup is like too!  And the fermentation equipment . . . and how about some tasting notes :)

Yep, didn't mean to imply that it wasn't fine.

Yes, it is.  By the time you dry hop, the alcohol content and low pH of the beer make it very resistant to infection.  In addition, hops have antibacterial properties.  Bottom line is that I've dry hopped hundreds of batches, never sanitized the hops, and never had a problem from it.

What came to mind was a guy dressed up, but wearing red Converse sneakers.  

I wish you luck.

Thanks, Jeff!  Hadn't thought about wearing the red Chuck Taylors, but now that you mention it....:)

3787 is my all time fave yeast for a tripel.  1388 is a nice yeast, but IMO, a bit too clean for a tripel.

Thanks Vert.  Sounds good on the schedule.  MmmmmMai!

As in any lager, I wait til I take a gravity to decide if I need a d rest. 

Sorry for being dense on the subject Denny,
but how does the gravity reading tell you if you need a rest or not?

FWIW, I am only in about 12 days at 50 degrees and went from 1.072 to 1.040.

Thanks for the help.

You're not dense, I'm just not awake enough to explain fully!  After I take the gravity reading, I taste the sample.  If I taste diacetyl, I do the rest.  If not, I don't.

I'm here. and now following this topic.

Woohoo! Surely the mods can do better than 1st kit!

Yeah, I agree, that needs to be changed to Brewing Buddha or something! But that's an Admin's job, I don't know how to do anything like that.

I looked and I couldn't see how to do it.  But I bet Drew can figure it out.

They should install a brewery and serve homebrew at state dinners :)

This is a great story for our hobby!


Thur. I testify before a state senate committee about getting our homebrew laws changed.  You can bet I'm gonna mention this!
