depends on the type of grass seed you're using... some have been developed to be really green with very little water.

not sure if anyone knows this but the CEO of Nestle is on record for saying that water should not be a basic right... companies should own it and sell it back... I'm sure this event really pissed him off!

"Nestle Corporation is known for selling chocolate, advocating the privatization of clean water (should not be a human right), child slave labor in Africa, controlling a large portion of the food supply and multiple bottled water brands (which they are making a shocking killing off of). They acquired rights from the Department of Natural Resources in Michigan to pump water out of Michigan for 99 years for just under $70,000. That’s right, for under $70,000 US dollars they have rights to pump hundreds of thousands of gallons of water out of Michigan as well as many other states each and every single day. According to the documentary film “Flow: For Love Of Water” the company profits approximately 1.8 Million dollars per day from its water bottling plants.

This is happening in CA too. Its not all environmental, these companies (Nestle is not the only one) have paid for rights to pump not only ground water but also allowed to pump out the aquafers (deep water souces well below the ground water level)

Just know there is much more going on besides a 'drought'... and it ain't because of 'global warming'! and due to all the fracking going on in CA too... that ground water and below is getting contaminated too! How's yer beer taste now?!  :o

I was at Stone Liberty Station last week and got to try the Stone Pale Ale 2.0, british style... very good. I'm hoping they bottle and sell.

I would say plan for growth now. You're putting in 30bbl tanks now, who's to say in a year or two you won't be upgrading to 100bbl? adding more fermenters? Finances allowing... At least 3-4 stories high, follow in the path of Stone, Sierra Nevada, etc and go green. Recycle byproducts, solar panels, etc. its much easier to do up front than it is to re-engineer the facility. If you don't already have a professional brewery consultant, go get one!

All Grain Brewing / Re: The End of the 60 minute mash???

ok guys, put a cap on it and go carb for a while...

I've done overnight mashes in the past, 8-12hrs and I get thinner, dryer beers. So time is a factor along with all the other stuff mentioned before. I'll definately try a shorter mash and see what results I get... would be real nice to shorten the brew day.

Equipment and Software / Re: The ethics of keggles
« on: February 05, 2015, 03:43:35 PM »
I bought a couple of kegs off a liquor store years ago... yea, probably 'stolen'. I don't feel guilty about it, they were a bit dented up and from budwieser. I didn't hurt any craft brewery in the process. I don't know why there always has to be ethics around buying used kegs... there is so much illegal stuff going on everyday, much much worse than this and we want to accept the guilt of buying a possibly 'stolen' keg... there are bigger threats out there to worry about.

There's The Professor! Long time, no speak! I have been dying to taste the new Ballantine they released but its only back East from what I understand. Haven't been able to find it anywhere in the PHX area.

Would you mind posting your recipe that uses Munich malt? I'd like to try another variation.

I've had to change up the hops in the past due to availability and have to admit, the recipe I posted is by far the best in my opinion. I'm always up for trying different variations though. I think I'll give Hopfen's receipe a try too.

after alot of research years ago, this is what I found:
Echoes of Ballantine
10 Gallon / All-Grain
Grist: Mash 60 minutes @ 152F
18 lbs British pale
1 lb British crystal 55L
1 lb Carafoam
3 lbs Flaked maize/corn
1 lb Flaked barley
90 minute hops:
2 oz Cluster (AA% 6.5-7.0)
60 minute hops:
2 oz Brewer's Gold (AA% 6.5-7.0)
30 minute hops:
2 oz Brewer's Gold (AA% 6.5-7.0)
15 minute hops:
1 oz East Kent Golding (AA% 4.0-5.0)
End of boil/Flameout hops:
1 oz East Kent Golding (AA% 4.0-5.0)
Water modified to Burton profile.
Wyeast # 1056

I know its nothing close to the original but boy is it good. I wish I could find some old timer who actually drank the original and remembers what it tastes like to get some feedback. Either way... this is one of my most brewed recipes. I actually have it on tap right now.
