The Pub / Re: Alabama tourism ad
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:36:27 AM »
So the craft brewers had no idea they were being pitched as a tourist draw?!  THAT'S crazy!

I had no idea. But I'm head brewer/production manager. The GM may have known about it. He doesn't tell me crap. ;)

Tagline could have been: "Alabamy: We ain't as red neck as you think we is."

Hope you can see the ad.  It's nothing like that!  Anyway I had noticed the buzz building around,  particularly, Huntsville.  I hope some AL beers get distributed up here eventually. Not like I wouldn't want to visit, just not likely feasible.
Wanna y’all gotta VCR? Tape it and send it down.

Been working on this for quite some time now.  Actually have a formula:

Surprisingly the answer is 42.

As an aside, how many actually brew, drink (and enjoy!) very malt beers like eisbock?

I have a Heller Bock and a Doppelbock lagering. No eisbock.

Drink, like? Yep.  Brew?  I think Eisbock would be illegal to homebrew, because the freezing counts as distillation.
OMG.  In my state, owning equipment which can be used to destill alcohol is illegal. I guess I need to throw away my freezer.

Numbers taste good!

It's not green this time, must be the Tettnang. ;)

Yellowhammer Brewing got two votes from me. Mayhew Junction Brewing got two votes from me also (props for Starkville, Mississippi.)

82% Pilsner Malt
18% Munich Light

Maybe I should have called it Mr. Malty.

Really? I didn’t know that. Did Rebel change ownership?

I’m not sure what happened. I used them ‘cause they were up the road, then they closed retail ops, then reopened but the address is in MN now. Too much drama for me.  So I go with Great Fermentations.

I use Adventures in Homebrewing now. They seem to have a sale nearly all the time and I like the 5% back program. I also like morebeer.

Me too, I really miss having Rebel somewhat local. I really need to find a group buy for sack grain.

Rebel reopened.

What about buying bags of grain from the local brewery? Is that bad? It’s local, but, it cuts out the LHBS.

All Grain Brewing / Bru'n Water pH off
« on: March 01, 2018, 12:00:49 AM »
My readings can be sporadic. On a couple of occasions lately, I have noticed my reading didn’t match predictions. I then check the meter in my 7 pH solution and it is off there, too. I recalibrate and then the wort reading is on target.

I don’t know if I do something wrong in calibration or if my meter is flaky.  I just know I am not inspired with confidence about the measurements. 

I am planning to stop taking readings soon. I am just using up my calibration fluids. I never try to correct the mash pH after a reading. I just record that data in my log and don’t do anything with it. I think Brunwater is right all the time (even when my measurement skills are lacking and I can’t prove it.) So, why bother?

Online versus local is an issue for many retail businesses. There is no easy solution. JoshBeer, what solutions do you propose to the problem? You mention “we need to incentivize the experience of shopping local instead.” What incentives do have in mind?

I shop online a lot. I get more selection, lower price, and convenience. I want to shop at my LHBS. But, when I do, I loose all three of the above.

I have reused US-05 slurry many times. I have never had any problems.

I have the worst mailman in the county. I’m sure I sent that invite out. We sure missed you.
