We will be re-brewing our American Pale Ale. We submitted it to a couple competitions and are making a few adjustments to the recipe based on some of the judges notes.

All Things Food / Pale Ale battered fish and chips

   12 oz Pale Ale (I used a can of Point Cascade Pale Ale)
   1 1/2 cups Flour
   1/2 tsp Salt
   1 tsp chipotle powder
    - sift dry ingredients & mix in beer to form batter

   1/2 cup Flour to dredge fish and then dip into batter
    - fry in 375 degree oil until done

I served this with some baked sweet potato fries & used the leftover batter to fry some mushroom caps

CLASSIC Cook´s knife - (9")

I think my next addition will be a good offset bread knife

I just wanted to thank everybody for their responses. We decided to go with the Bayou Classic SP-10. We used it for the first time tonight, brewed an american stout, and it worked great! cut about two hours off our brew time.

we are brewing an experimental witches brew tomorrow night using up all of our leftover grains, hops and an american ale yeast we pulled from our vanilla cream ale. its going to be interesting!

I was in Amsterdam back in 2005. I would recommend the Heineken Brewery tour as well, nothing better than having a heineken straight from the brewery. Here's a picture of us at the brewery  with Gary Dell'Abate(Baba Booey) & Sal Governale (Sal the Stockbroker) from the Howard Stern Show.

Also Don't forget to try the pomme frites with mayo & wash it down with a cold brew

I also remember the coffee shop called Dutch Flowers had a pretty good wit on tap, it was a nice laid-back place overlooking a canal

We are looking to buy a propane burner and are not sure what to go with. We currently use a 40qt pot and are doing 5-10 gallon all grain batches. Any advice on BTU's, PSI regulators, or better models not listed below? Thanks
our top 3 choices: we are trying to stay in the $60 range

Bayou Classic Propane Double Jet Burner

Bayou Classic Square High Pressure Propane Burner

We are brewing an Imperial Stout this weekend and wanted to try making a Small beer with the spent grains and was wondering if anyone had experience brewing Small beers and if an Imperial Stout would be an appropriate style to make one with?  Thanks

Kegging our American Pale Ale  and hopefully brewing an Imperial Stout
