For me selling out would allow me to take the money and run as soon as the sales contract, which surely forces the founders to stick around a few years, allowed me to stop "innovating" for the Giant Brewing Conglomerate.

Thanks. All the traveling around Europe drinking beer makes me jealous. Of course, I get to do some of that in the US.   Maybe I need to add a challenge next time I am on the road.

No more googling? I am dead in the water without google.

You are at Brouwerij Bosteels drinking Tripel Karmeliet.

I searched "Fleur de lis Belgium brewery".

Brewed up my Festbier tonight. Everything went swimmingly until I put the fermenter in the chest freezer. Chest freezer is dead. I made the quick decision to head to Home Depot and buy a new one.

This last one lasted just over 3 years. That seems too short.


Wow, that sucks. Glad you could get a new one.
I left the old one plugged directly into the wall while I went to get the new one. It was on when I got home. I'll keep the new one a few days just in case.

I have been bittering with 3.9% Liberty lately.  I have only been targeting 17 IBU so the volumes in 3G batch have been reasonable.  Bumping to 25 IBU for a Festbier this weekend. I will try  50/50 Munich Liberty IBU split.

1/2 oz (in 5 gals) of something mild like Liberty around 5 mins be nice and subtle in a festbier.  Nowhere near over the top.  It will only add a very light background note.  I think you'll like it, and even then it WOULD fit per style guidelines.
I had a Keesmann Festbier yesterday. My notes say the aroma was malty with low hops. Not much hop flavor. Finish tilts to a dry bitterness, but only by a little.
Thanks, sounds like your having a good trip. Vacation I hope.

No competition, but, I am still not sure about adding late hops to the Festbier. I really like the Helles sans hop flavor so it stands to reason I will like the Festbier the same way. I am looking for Helles that is a bit more filling. Tastes great, more filling. If you know what I mean.

I upped the IBU's to 25 in my recipe.

Are you guys adding a late hop addition to your Helles? I have done 4-5 lagers in a row. All but 1 has had only a bittering addition.  The one with late hops was a Pilsner with cascade.

I am planning a Festbier for this weekend.

OG target 1055
95% Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsner
5% Floor Malted Bohemian Dark
21 IBU at 60 min (Liberty or Magnum)
Yellow malty water.
WLP833

I am basing the recipe off percentages and ingredients  Majorvices used for a Helles at Yellowhammer recently that had a great Munich maltiness. I scaled the OG to 1055 since Fest is supposed to land between Helles and Helles Bock.

Thoughts? Seems simple but I think it will be good.
