Here is an interesting chart that Haas used in the Hops Academy I took a couple of years ago.  Remember that the 'Average beer' is BMC.

I've been reading that Dick Cantwell, the head brewer and part owner, and the 'face' of Elysian, voted against the sale to AB, but was in the minority.

Just last night I tried an American Amber Ale brewed by Haas Experimental which was single hopped with Equinox.  It was quite good.  I was in a large group with a lot going on so I didn't really focus on the beer too much, but I enjoyed the hop flavor a lot.

Yes.  I usually dry hop for 3-4 days.

The Pub / Elysian Just sold to Anheuser-Busch

I just saw this.  Here is the money quote:

"Breaking news – we don’t have all the details yet, but some rumors we caught wind of earlier this week are confirmed this morning in an email from Dick Cantwell, Brewmaster and Co-owner of Elysian Brewing Company.

“I’m free to tell you it’s true. Elysian is now part of ABI,” said Cantwell."

Wow they are really in a buying mode!

The Pub / Re: I finally get to see Garth

Early in my career I lived in a small country town, and a sizeable portion of my congregation loved country music.  This was when Garth Brooks was first a big star.  So I thought, "Here is a guy that is blending elements of rock and pop... I'll buy a tape and see if I can get into this 'new western' music thing."

After listening to the tape half a dozen times I gave it away.  Classic Rock and Jazz for me; I just can't do the country music thing.  But to each their own!  I hope you really enjoy the show.

Too many beer snobs hung up on high gravity stouts and judging every other beer in the world against those beers. There are 5% ABV beers that are every bit as good (or better than) 10+% beers.

That's how I feel.  No way the top 50 beers in the country are almost all RIS and IIPA.

My favorite beers are.  And most people are like me.  I have great taste.

Equipment and Software / Re: Chest Freezer (fermentation and keg storage)
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:44:06 PM »
I use an upright freezer primarily as a fermentation chamber, but I recently added two taps to it so it can double as a kegerator.  I did this because over the holidays I had 4 kegs ready to go, and wasn't planning on a brew day.  And unless I'm in a hurry wanting to brew another quickly, when fermentation is done, I'll keg it, set the temp to 32* and cold condition the beer for a week or so in it.

This is a Kenmore that I paid about $450 for:

Here is a good thread to look at:

But in the mean time, I have had 3 mills: Cereal Killer, Captain Crush, and now Schmidlings.  Schmidlings is the best of those.

Thanks everyone.  Amber bitter it is.

Ingredients / Brun' Water profile for Barleywine?
« on: January 20, 2015, 11:12:21 AM »
My next brew will be an American Barleywine.  Can someone recommend a Brun' Water profile for this please?

Well the water looks good, smells good and tastes good, so I'm going to use it.  If the beer doesn't turn out fantastic I'll blame it on old water.
