But, I don't think I'll be able to get going with it till I retire (7-8 years) so that I don't have to worry about income.

Looks awesome. As a Navy vet I am inclined to ask for a discount when production begins.

As a fellow Navy vet, I'll bet you'd drink for free

The lack of comment due to 10 Barrel being owned by the Evil Empire?  Probably not, but I wonder.  Regardless of who makes it it is seriously tasty stuff!  And frankly...  Aw nevermind.

Commercial Beer Reviews / 10 Barrel Joe IPA
« on: July 28, 2015, 03:36:40 PM »
Put on a motorcycle trip, stopped in Hoodsport, WA for the night.  Picked up a sixer of "Joe" to go with cigars.  I chose it because it advertises Simcoe, Amarillo & Mosaic hops.  Wonderful hop flavor.  Seriously one of the best IPAs I've had

I can't stand flip flops, even at the beach. I think they are the least comfortable footwear between the thing between the toes and the flopping around.

Yeah, I almost always wear running shoes.  No protection there.  But I brew on a concrete garage floor.  The cushioning is nice.

Does only UV light affect this?

I asked a similar question and was told in my Brewing Chemistry class at Central Washington Univ. that the whole light spectrum will skunk beer.

There is a hop product that is engineered to not go skunky.  Think Miller or Corona in the clear bottles.  To my knowledge it is not available to the homebrew market.

I really like it. And Anchor will sue you.

They can buy me out for a cool million.

I've been working with a guy on Outsource.com to develop a logo for the possible brewery I may start when I retire in a few years.  Here is his nearly final effort:



I've incorporated and trademarked the name.  All the cheap stuff...

First I wanted to try Summit hops for two reasons.  First they were said to give an onion or garlic flavor when used for bittering. 

I read somewhere that the onion came from when the hops were harvested and summits harvested at an earlier (later? not sure) time gave off no onion aspects.

I have also heard this with respect to this hop and others (Citra, etc.).

Best you have brewed, but no orange/tangerine. Is that a win or fail? No garlic/onion is a win!

I don't think it is the best I have brewed - my daughter said that.  It's good but I've brewed several I like better.

No it is a win overall, just disappointed in the lack of flavor carry-over vis. the hops.

Ingredients / Summit & Mandarina Bavaria
« on: July 22, 2015, 01:00:47 PM »
I finally got around to brewing a Pale Ale that I wanted to do for some time.  There were in essence two new factors that I wanted to experiment with.

First I wanted to try Summit hops for two reasons.  First they were said to give an onion or garlic flavor when used for bittering.  Someone on this forum stated that he never got that when using them as a 20 minute addition, and second, that they contributed to a tangerine or mandarin orange flavor when used this way.

The second new factor is that I had not tried Mandarina Bavaria hops before, and they too were said to contribute a dominant mandarin orange / tangerine flavor.

The beer turned out good.  My daughter said it was the best beer I have brewed.

No one picked up any onion or garlic flavors, so that is a win.  However, no one picked up any mandarin orange or tangerine flavors!  A bust there.  Obviously I am looking for it, but there is a medium intensity orange aroma to the beer.  I can also taste orange a bit, but again that could be because I know it is there.  Again, no one who tries it blind identifies anything orangey.

Here is the recipe I used:

Tangerine Dream Bar (Hah!)
American Pale Ale (10 A)
OG: 1.049 / FG 1.004
Batch Size: 6.50 gal

9 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)  78.3 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz Munich Malt (10.0 SRM)   13.0 %
1 lbs White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM)       8.7 %

1.00 oz Summit [17.00 %] - Boil 20.0 min  32.0 IBUs

3.00 oz Mandarina Bavaria [8.10 %] - 30 minute hop stand @ 170*
1.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05)
5.00 oz Mandarina Bavaria [8.50 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Days

I did an Azacca single hop IPA a while back.  I like the hop.  I'm not sure how much contribution an ounce will make though.  I posted about it here:

Other Fermentables / Re: Thinking about trying Mead
« on: July 15, 2015, 06:14:33 PM »
I think this is also worth a read: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/current-mead-making-techniques.html

Mead made with certain types of beer yeast (e.g., Duvel strain) works well.

A good link, thank you.
