Ingredients / Re: high sulfates

All the time for certain styles. You get crisp bitterness and lingering dry finish. Don't expect flavor and aroma to go up.

Brought up Schwartzbier, as some pictures of German labels say Black Pilsner (translated).

I really gotta make a purple IPA sometime to demonstrate how stupid it is to have a "style" based on color alone.
<cough> Schwartzbier?

The article stated Spoetzl is independent. They are part of Gambrinus.

The Pub / Re: bridge collapse

There was also a failurea when a barge hit the South Padre Island Bridge on Sept 16, 2001. There are now stop lights that are activated if a wire carrying a signal is severed.

A good read is the latest by Henry Petroski, and he has a section on bridge failures. seems there is one that happens every 30-40 years, often due to unforeseen consequences as a bridge type is refined. His opinion is that the cable stayed bridges will be a cantidate for the next major failure.

"Washington state was given a C in the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2013 infrastructure report card and a C- when it came to the state's bridges. The group said more than a quarter of Washington's 7,840 bridges are considered structurally deficient or functionally obsolete."  Not good.
i live in a state with a D rating. The winters take a toll, and we have the highest truck GVW by a factor greater than 2. The roads are 3rd world quality in places.

Pimp My System / Re: I'M CHEAP, NO PUMPS, ALL GRAVITY 15 GAL

Join the MI Brewers Guild. It is for the pro brewers but there are private members only meetings and VIP passes to the Brew Fests and a lot of information for us not so PROS! A Volunteer could get free entry to the Brew Fests.
Ihave poured for several locals at the other 3 fests. You get free admission for you work, and have off shift time. That is how they get volunteers.

It doesn't look cheap, you just decided what to spend the money on. Good set up.


I see a stainless 3 tub sink, stone shelf, a water bib so you can clean and sprays up, and the all important mop. From the posters it looks like you are from MI.
St. Johns MI Dead center. The company I work for American Rentals does all the tents and Ameri-Cans for all the Mi Brewers Guild Beer Fests so I get VIP passes.
Good job perk. I have to all but the UP fest. If a local place makes the trip, I have said I am in to pour for them. Love the UP.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: SS Bottles

I would rather spend $50 on a 5 gallon bottle corny keg.
Can't get 'em for $50 anymore...
Maybe not where you shop. Going to my LHBS tomorrow.

As the old back gets in the way at times, the O2 is the low impact solution.

These are in many brewing museums in Europe.



You might need some more room.

The HCO3 jumped out to me.

The higher Ca means he does not need to add, or add as much, so that's good.
