I bought a cheap roll of roof flashing at Home Depot and made a shield that wraps around the kettle. It's held together with two small bolts and hangs on the kettle handle with two small carabiners. When brew day is done, it unbolts and wraps small enough to slip inside the kettle for storage. I made it for my 15 gal pot so it would heat faster but I mostly use it with my 10 gal pot as a windbreak and it helps use less gas.Yes, a windshield is essential on a windy day.
I had a great time visiting with you Jeff (hope I didn't talk your ears off). Nice to meet your wife and sister also.Thanks again, Marc. When I got back to the bar, Susan said I had a nice sheen from the persperation.
It was hot and humid in the brewery due to the weather and a just finished brew day, which could have added to skin tone color.
A friend of mine swears WLP833 is the secret to the finest lagers and I totally believe him, as they're great.
Now today I just read on Brulosophy.com that people can't taste the difference between WLP833 and W-34/70. So there's that.
There's a lot less variation between lager yeasts than there is in ale yeast. Doesn't really surprise me that people have a hard time telling them apart.
I like the idea of the floor malted pils but you don't need any of that other malt. You will find recipes with other grains in them but I think they are unnecessary.His OG was to be 1.039. This would fit in 3a, and 35-40 IBUs are too high for 3a, but fit in for a 3b.
IBUs should be around 35-40.
Needs a lot more hops in the late boil. Should look closer to around an ounce at fifteen or twenty minutes and another ounce at flameout.
Czech pils also needs a soft water. Look at RO water with a small calcium addition if water chemistry is not something you are familiar with.
That's $38 more dollars for the other stuffIf you haven't researched how membership will allow you get that $38 back, and then some, then you are Going about the whole thing wrong.
König was my go to beer at our favorite Pizza place in Wiesbaden, as it was better than the other Fernseher beers they had.Jealous of the Konig pilsener! I had some Zywiec lager in cans about a month ago when I was in Baltimore. That's some tasty stuff.the konig was the first I tried and it was great, it really tasted great. The carlsburg was nice too, a great lake beer.
Those are called crowlers. The machine is made by Oskar Blues.Absolutely agree. I don't buy beer in bottles anymore. Only cans.I don't go that far, too much in bottles only I like.
Wish I could can at home.
There's a newish brewpub in Chicago that does 32oz cans to go. They have a cool gadget that I'm sure cost a ton of money, but it's fun to dream. It's a lot more convenient than hauling a growler, too.
Hadn't heard of that - it's a great idea. Would stay fresh longer obviously.
Double check your "out" poppet for debris. Sounds like a clogged poppet.I have had that happen. I have also had clogged dip tubes that had to be removed and cleared with a dip tube brush. Have had frozen lines, and even partially frozen kegs.
