This is a 50/50 blend of my latest Helles and Irish Red. I like it better than the 2 beers by themselves. I especially like this lower level of roasted barley. It adds a nice character malt taste without overpowering.



Cool! Did you go with a lager or ale yeast?

My buddy and I brewed a similar beer where we made a hybrid of each of our best beers; a kolsch and a brown ale. It was easily as good or better than the parent beers.
One was S-189 and one was Irish Ale yeast. The blend is quite clean.

PS. Good job. Well deserved.

The Pub / Rebel Brewer Closing Retail and Warehouse
« on: March 07, 2017, 01:43:21 PM »
Sad day. Rebel Brewer is closing their retail location and warehouse. They will still have a website to sell drop shipped items. They are very close to me and have very fast shipping.

We just got a LHBS in town. So, I guess the timing works out for me.

Threading the lid sucks with the cane hanging out.

Turn the bottle instead. :)
I'll talk to my doctor about giving me a third hand. One to hold the lid and two to spin the fermenter.

 ;D Alright, you got me there.
I guess I could have one of those kids that people are always talking about. I hear they work for nothing.
No they don't!

Mine is a play on Hail State which is a common phrase at Mississippi State University where I used to work. I added y'all because that's what we say in the South. I thought about changing it since I no longer work MSU don't live in Mississippi anymore but I haven't. I have fond memories.

If you spund in a keg then use this device to transfer to a clean keg will you avoid this problem?

:)Hello to everyone. I'm trying to insert a picture but i cant... :'(
On the AHA website you can only insert a link to a photo.   You have to host the photo somewhere else (on another site). It's much easier using the tapatalk app on your phone; just click the insert photo icon and upload while editing your response.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Wyeast Discontinuing Some Strains
« on: February 22, 2017, 05:35:38 AM »
I actually like the new White Labs packaging.  They take up less room in my fridge and I have had good luck with yeast health; fermentations have always taken off very fast even for a year old pack.

This is not to say Wyeast lower quality.
