All Grain Brewing / Re: Big brew Barleywine
« on: April 14, 2015, 12:01:09 PM »
Hi all -

The Big Brew recipes this year are taken directly from Gordon Strong's upcoming Modern Homebrew Recipes book. We have heard your concerns on the complicated grain bill, though. If you are looking for a simpler barleywine recipe to brew on May 2, feel free to search the website for past Big Brew recipes!

The Pub / Re: Craft beer tap list app
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:20:01 AM »
Some folks in Richmond, VA came up with a similar app/website called 'Trinkin' a few years ago (or maybe a few months ago... not sure). It's awesome. They have expanded to other cities in VA, too:

Yeast and Fermentation / Starter for Sours
« on: August 14, 2014, 10:30:50 AM »
I am not sure where I heard it, or read it - but I am under the impression that making a starter for a sour beer is not beneficial. I plan to pitch Roselare blend in primary for a Flanders Red. My understanding is that Wyeast has created the Roselare blend with specific ratios of Sach:Lacto:Pedio:Brett for the perfect flavor profile. If you make a starter, then the Sach yeast will reproduce much more quickly than the bugs, and knock off that ratio, therefore messing up the flavor profile that Wyeast created.

Is this correct? Or have I been under the wrong impression about creating a starter with the Roselare blend?

Gracias!

Are you insanely passionate about making beer?  Are you an amateur brewer who competes? Are you part of a group of friends, social club, or family who brew together? Do you devote every waking second (or all of your free time) to making beer?

A major cable network and Part2 Pictures, an award-winning documentary film and television company based in New York City have teamed up to develop a quality TV show about the fun, competitive world of amateur beer brewing. 

We are currently casting people who represent the wide-range of folks making beer – especially those of you who are very active members of a brew club or beer brewing group.  We’d love to speak with you to learn more about the where’s, how’s and why’s of brewing beer.
WE ARE SEEKING:
•   Amateur brewers who participate in competitions (or will be entering their first competition)
•   Members of a social brewers club who brew together
•   Colleagues or friends who are part of a brew team
•   Siblings or a whole family of brewers
•   We will also consider individual brewers not part of a cohesive group
•   Brewers with a “friendly rivalry” – or who have someone they’ve been dying to outbrew
•   We are open to people who have been doing this for many years or just starting out, or amateurs who have the dream of going pro
•   We are interested in people who just LOVE beer
•   Big personalities and huge passion for making beer a must!
If you fit the description or know someone who does, please email: casting@part2pictures.com with the following info:
•   name, email and phone number
•   a recent photo of yourself and your “brewmates”
•   where you live
•   why you love making beer
•   how long you’ve been brewing beer
•   describe your group (or indicate if you brew and compete on your own)
•   your local brew club (if applicable)
•   details of the competition circuit (how many competitions you participate in, when you will be next competing, etc.)
•   describe the type of beer(s) you make and why you think it’s the best!
•   why you’d love to participate in a show about beer brewers

About Us:
Part2 Pictures is a reputable television company that has produced a variety of high-quality documentary programming for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel, PBS, The History Channel and other major broadcasters. We are committed to telling great stories about people, their take on a world and how they operate within it.

Thank you!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA Rally - What to expect
« on: March 13, 2014, 10:06:50 AM »
The AHA is really excited for the New Holland Rally!

What to expect? In a nutshell... Expect to have fun.

Once that you 'check-in' to the Rally around 1pm at the New Holland Production Facility, the first hour of the Rally will be filled with VIP tours of the brewery by New Holland brewers. The Production Facility is not typically open to the public, so this is a great chance to see the brewery up close.

New Holland has invited attendees to bring ONE bottle of homebrew each to share with each other at the production facility- so bring your best bottle to share with some new friends. There will be local clubs & shops at the Rally with promotional booths set up.

Around 2:30, the Rally attendees are invited to join the 2nd half of the event at the New Holland Brewpub, where AHA Business Coordinator Steve Parr will be raffling off prizes (each attendee gets a raffle ticket) such as pint glasses, shirts, hats, and books. The brewpub will have a beer brewed in collaboration with local club, Brewers on the Lake on tap, as well as their seasonal release of White Hatter.

Finally, every Rally attendee will be able to take home a Dry-Erase Brew Log magnet. These gifts are brand new to the Rally program this year, and can only be found at AHA Rallies. New Holland also has a live band booked at the brewpub starting at 4pm, when the Rally ends, and encourages all attendees to stick around to enjoy the evening at the brewpub!
