I've found that a little keg seal lubricant helps a lot.

All Grain Brewing / Great Western 2-row vs. Pale Ale
« on: March 31, 2011, 07:11:18 PM »
 My local supplier substituted GW NW Pale Ale for the Premium 2-Row that I wanted.  What would be the difference as far as recipe building?  I see that the Pale Ale is a bit darker...anything else?

I am planning to introduce my boss to all-grain brewing.  We will do a high gravity pale ale with Danstar Munich yeast.  It's what I like to call an Uberdampfbier.

Two parts boiling water plus one part 60 degree water should put you at about 160 degrees. If your ground water is colder than that, you could adjust the proportions.

I'm not sure if this is relevant to the rice discussion, but the 2 #s of red beets that I used in 5 gallons of wheat ale did not make a whit (wheat?) of difference to the color of the beer when the boil was done.  I was hoping for a purple/red beer.  That didn't happen.

Did the rules change from last year? I thought I remembered one beer per category.  Guess I'll have get around to reading them for this year.
There's a difference between one beer per category and one category per beer.

There is only a couple inches of run between the ice and the tap.

Equipment and Software / Travel Taps on the cheap

...if you have a kegerator that you can temporarily cannibalize.  This cost me about $15 for the shelves and $5 for the hinge.

Here's a link:
Is a 100 micron filter small enough to filter chlorine and/or chloramines?

Equipment and Software / Dropped my Barley Crusher
« on: December 05, 2010, 02:20:44 PM »
I dropped my Barley Crusher. It landed on its hand-crank arm.  Now the shaft is bent between the handle and the knurls. >:(  I'm going to use the table vise at work and see if I can bend it back straight, but if I can't, is there a replacement part readily available?

I'm doing a big weizenbock.  1.104 anticipated OG.  I'm going to call it Tweiczenbock, as in a double weizenbock.

Wood/Casks / Re: Souring in a Whiskey Cured Barrel???
« on: December 03, 2010, 07:06:09 AM »
I think that if you have the patience, it would be a good idea to use the barrel for a couple of non-sour batches first.  The whiskey flavor should start to diminish as it is used a few times.  Also, from what I understand, once you go sour, you can't go back.

I've always enjoyed the apparent sense of humor that went along with the intelligence of Niels Bohr.
e.g.: "I don't believe in superstition, but I hung a horse-shoe just in case."

I'm not sure any BMC drinkers will be swayed by chicha.

I go with the printable UPS shipping labels from my computer as well.  Nobody has ever even inquired about the contents when I drop them off at the shipping store.
