Thanks for your thoughtful post.  You raise some really good points.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What's your first brew for 2011?
« on: January 02, 2011, 03:40:18 PM »
Just completed my first brew of 2011...a dunkel, kind of a cross between Munich and Czech.  Exceeded both my OG and volume expectations for 88% efficiency.  I was shooting for 5.5 gal. at 1.056 and got 5.75 gal. at 1.062. Hope that's a harbinger for the rest of the year!

To Denny: Delete offending post, not me altogether ;D

 

The world would be a duller place if I deleted YOU!  :)  I'm not deleting anything at this time, and I hope that no one gives me any reason to.

I agree...delete me as necessary.

No deletion, no thread locking...yet.  As long as everyone respects the rules, I'll respect your right to post.

Please keep this to the original point, and its legality and morality.  We're drifting into some dangerous territory.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Can I brew Ales at ambient temps in 50's

Nothing wrong with choosing the style you brew based on ambient conditions.  People have been doing that for years.

I absolutely agree...that's why I brew lagers in the winter.

There's no problem fermenting ales in the 50s...I routinely ferment my alt at 52F (or even a bit less) with WY1007.  That same yeast would make a great APA or AIPA.  But when you say "Belgian tripel ingredients", to me that includes the yeast, since that is just about the key ingredient in a tripel.

[It might be an interesting experiment to try Belgian Triple ingredients with the 1728, which is very alcohol tolerant.  I have no idea how it would turn out; might be great or might suck big time.  I would only do that if (like me) you take a very casual attitude about brewing to style.

It would have virtually none of the esters or phenolics that identify  beer as Belgian.  It isn't so much about hitting a style as brewing what you intended to brew.

Maybe so, but I was under the impression that the cabin and hold pressure was controlled.

I dont want anyone working for me that tests negative.

CLASSIC! :D

Many years ago, I had just hired a new employee and invited him to a party at my house.  When he showed up, I handed him a joint and said "Here's the company drug test"!

I guess I can't see why it wouldn't.

Beer Recipes / Re: Rye APA Recipe Help.
« on: January 01, 2011, 10:56:40 AM »
I think the "dankness" of Columbus hops goes really with the rye flavor.  I generally use Am. "C" hops, often with German hops in the background, for rye beers and I like the combination.  Guess I'm kinda in a rut and probably should experiment a bit more to see about your hypothesis.

All Grain Brewing / Re: 109% Efficiency!
« on: January 01, 2011, 10:47:32 AM »
Denny, in that case the laboratory extract given in the malt sheets is not the 100% mark. And we should not use it as the baseline for efficiency. 

Kai

and the thought of that makes my head hurt....wait a minute, maybe that's the hangover!  ;)

The Pub / Re: Is to Early to Say Happy New Year?
« on: January 01, 2011, 10:45:47 AM »
Happy New Beer everybody!  we had a pretty quiet night.  I made some homemade angel hair pasta and shrimp and scallops in a Vermouth cream sauce to go with it.  Drank my version of Rochefort 10, and even managed to stay awake til midnight.
