Nothing against IPA's. But, can you taste anything after flight no. 2?

The real question is: Why would you want to?

I'm sure I would have gone with the flight of IPAs.  Apparently I live in the right part of the world because 80% of the time when I ask myself what style I want to drink, the answer is "An IPA!"

Seriously, there is just so much going on in a good IPA!  Malt character, mouth watering acidity, intriguing aromas, bracing bitterness...  And each of these categories has three dimensions of variability to experiment with. 

I never tire of it.  ::)

This is from the 2011 NHC experience, so it is limited.  You have Stone on your radar.
Pizza Port Solana Beach, Carlsbad, or Ocean Beach. The Toronado on 30th for a wide selection of beers.

There are too many places to go to. This time I might go to the White Labs tasting room to see what different yeasts do to the same wort.

YES.  I love the idea.  White Labs is now first on the must-go list.

Now I'm curious.  Was there a specific question you wanted to ask?
I want to know what melanoidins taste like. Denny won't tell us.

A list from Designing Great Beers, by Ray Daniels:
"Chocolate, Rye bread, Musty, Violets, Buttery, Burnt, Toasted, Fruity aromatic, Rose perfume, Rock candy, Caramel, Bready, maple syrup, Burnt protein, Sweet"

I'm a helper.  ;)

From something I picked up on the old HBD back in the late 90s early 2000s timeframe, as to mix a campden tablet into the mash. The SO2 is an antioxidant that inhibits the oxidation of the malt compounds that lead to stalling. Any remaining SO2 is driven off in the boil.

I'm going to buy some campden tablets!  Thanks!

I've been looking for a stainless steel insulated mash tun or cooler for a long time.  I can't believe it hasn't been done before this.  So I'm on board with a 15 gal. MT.  Anticipated September shipping will be just in time for the next cold season!

Thinking of re-bottling one for a competition? ; -)

Ha!  No, I was preparing for an upcoming BJCP study group and remembered I had a bottle.  My problem was starting at the beginning of category 18 and trying to fit it into 18:B.  We weren't going to do D & E so I didn't think to look.

Sticking your face in the fermenting bucket isn't a good idea either, a good wiff of co2 will knock you on your a$$, literally takes your breath away:)

I learned that the hard way when I thought I'd smell the dry hop residue in my Speidel after kegging.  Ooof!

Yeah I'd make sure.  It could be that perlick makes metric and standard.

I think that might be the frumunda.  But I sure hope not.

I had to goggle this.  I'm sorry I did.  :o

I had an issue with an old kegerator that was made in Spain I think.  It was a Vissani.  American faucets would not work on it.  I had to replace the tower.  Obviously I don't know if this issue is why you were asking but that is what came to mind - if you are dealing with a metric tower, good luck!
