On a side note, I saw the comment about 'stirring the clumps loose'... I find that if I add the water first then slowly stir in the grain, I don't have to stir much if any clumps loose...

same here

Mash at 2148 for 90 min. for a very fermentable wort. 

Just as a follow up if you want to try that mash schedule you'll need access to a blast furnace.  Make sure you have a very sturdy kettle.  ;D

In general, a tripel is just pils malt and sugar.  You want to have a very low FG, so I'd lose the Munich and caravienne (or cut the caravienne back to 1/2 lb. or less).  Mash at 148 for 90 min. for a very fermentable wort.  Forget the candi sugar and use table sugar.

Or if one of them would produce a more practically pitchable sized offering.

Homebrewers are notoriously "frugal".  Most wouldn't pay the price a realistically sized pack of yeast would cost.  IMO, if you're not into making starters, stick with dry yeast.  Even US-05 can make some decent pseudo lagers.

These days it's just a wedding ring and a watch.  Back in the 70s, I wore puka shell and turquoise necklaces, turquoise rings, scrimshaw bracelets inset with coral.....

Thanks to Jamil and Chris for their timer and effort answering your questions.  You can find the answers at http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/community/news/show?title=ask-the-experts-white-zainasheff-answer .

Next up is Stan Heironymous taking questions on Belgian beers.  I'll let everybody know when the question period starts.

I use bags for whole hops and the pellets go through the pump and into the fermenter.  I've found that I like using the bags.  It makes cleanup easier and I haven't found any detriments to the beer.

I worked my ass off all week and am sitting around drinking beer, listening to music and drinking beer and typing on the interwebs and drinking beeer. :)

Have a beer, too, Keith!

What's up with the back Denny, you didn't say anything earlier this week?  Are you falling apart or what? :) 

It's a week til my 59th birthday and I feel like a dilapidated old man!  I was just standing up on Fri. morning and the back went.

kcjaz, thanks a lot for the info.

re Denny - do you notice any difference in appearance between the 2?

I definitely find the cold pitched beer to be cleaner

I always chill to a bit below fermentation temp before pitching either lagers or ales.

FWIW, an experiment on lagers done by a guy on Brews and Vies found that he got a clearer and better tasting beer by not removing trub.
