I thought that guy was wearing a strange dead animal hat. I thought - eh - Germans. I know some a German who'd own a hat like that.

Yeah, there is wild boar and coyote mounts on the wall. That guy is John Palmer.

8).  "luminaries of the brewing-verse".  I like it!

Excellent lederhosen...what type of shoes do you wear with that outfit?

The shoes are from Germany, are made of suede, and lace up on the side. This get up was my Birthday present.

I have learned that these are Bundhosen, as they go below the knee. Lederhosen end above the knee. Mine are goat, which is said to be softer than cowhide, but softest and most expensive is deer hide.

The Pub / Oktoberfest Hombrew Party in Michigan

If you have been to the NHC, you might know Joe and Andy Hudacek. They have a big Oktoberfest party everyday on the first day of the Oktoberfest in Munich, so it was last Saturday. Always a great time, they had 250 gallons of hombrew on tap, a BBQ pig, brats, and everyone brings a dish to pass. Bands, a magician for the kids, TVs for those that have to see the football games, and bonfires. It is a great time.

Many from the club were there, local professional brewers, one with a brewery under construction, and other luminaries of the brewing-verse.

Here is a photo of me and some other guy. I look a little German in this photo.  ;D



John had copy of his new book there for people to look at. Can't wait for it to arrive.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Another best beers list.
« on: September 21, 2013, 09:58:04 AM »
Nothing about when ones palate comes to the state where a fine lager can be appreciated as one of the best beers in the world.

Data from a fanboy site does not exactly make those the best beers, IMHO.

That's a nice looking Helles.  I think my camera's better, though  ;)
Cell phone camera, didn't play with settings or lighting. I am sure your camera is better!

All Grain Brewing / Re: Water profile for Pumpkin Ale

I'm thinking Amber Malty. Your thoughts....

I'm doing an Oktoberfest style ale base for mine.
Which is sort of amber malty.

We had Rolling Rock in our study group, and yes it had DMS, even brewed by AB. They learned how to do it.

For monkeypimp- DMS tastes similar to creamed corn. Rolling Rock has that flavor defect. If you never picked it up in your beer, or Rolling Rock, you my have a very high sensitivity, or be flavor blind to it (some people are).

Ingredients / Re: One pound of cascade hops.

I could see if the guy doesn't mind me picking more. Especially if I picked the bush clean for him and left what I don't want to use for his man cave potpourri.

That's some fast drying Klickitat. May hops are still a lil wet but firm and unmushy.
It might be dry east of those mountains. Relative humidity is what, Jim?

If anyone wants to sign up for BrewTechTalk, here's the link...

http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/community/brewtechtalk-2-0

Brings back memories of the fight over shutting down TechTalk.  8^)  Was that only last year?  Wow!  Seems longer ago than that.

No suggestions for improvement.  I've finally learned where everything is again.

Paul

I think it was longer than a year, but I'm not certain.  I find it interesting that after all the squall over shutting down TechTalk, the new one goes months without anyone posting.

Glad you said that!

I thought the HBD would perk up, but it did not.

Most advice you find says 1 liter a minute for a minute per 5 gallons of a standard ale (something about 1.050). You go longer for high gravity or lagers.
