A little chamomile is nice in a witbier too.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Cloudy Beer that was recently kegged

Actually I think it's just yeast sediment that will be reduced as you drink another pint or two.  My beers do that if I transfer right from the primary to the keg, especially when they were brewed fairly recently.
Keeping a wheat beer cloudy when it's in a cold keg is tricky.  There's a product called Tanal A that some pros use to keep them hazy, but I've never tried it.

I've been invited to a couple of looting parties, but I doubt I'll go.  They have their own facebook pages.
Here's a nice flow chart to let you know if you'll be staying or going:

Beer Recipes / Re: Helles - FWH + small late addition only
« on: May 19, 2011, 02:12:44 PM »
Paul, what type of hops did you use before and what are you thinking of using for the FWH version?
I was using Magnum for bittering (about 17-18 IBUs worth) at 60 min, with a small Hallertauer Mittlefruh addition at 10min (0.50 oz for 12gal).
For the FWH version I was thinking either using Mittlefruh all the way through or Tradition.  I would do Tettnanger, but I have a lot of the other two currently.
I've used a lot of Tradition lately.  I really like the flavor.  I'd think it would be a lot smoother and more mellow than Magnum.

Nice and pleasant here.  Low humidity for a change.

All Things Food / Re: Rye Bread

This reminds me of a beer and food pairing a friend and I did last year.  He made these little Reuben sandwich sliders and I paired my Export lager with them, but I added the caraway seed to the beer instead of the bread.  It was a great match.  The beer smelled like rye bread.

You have a choice:
You could chock it up to "different judge, different day" and keep entering the same beer in hopes that the next set of judges agrees with you;
You could extrapolate from the comments and make your beer better the next time;
You could save all the beer for yourself and your friends and avoid competitions altogether.

I like to enter competitions and have won a stack of medals, but I'm looking seriously at comments lately because my percentage of winning is way down these days.  I doubt that everybody else suddenly got better than me, so I'm looking at the comments to see what I may do to make improvements.

2.67 - a bit over half way on the irritating scale.  The other two (picky and arrogant) were low.

  Another great one was Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends. Eduardo was the greatest!
I liked the Power Puff Girls, not that there's anything wrong with that......Mojo Jojo was a great villain.

FWIW I'm going to try to go to Brooklyn Brewery and Sixpoint in NY and Goose Island and Half Acre for brewery visits. Not sure where else to go.
One of my favorite bars in NYC is the Blind Tiger in the West Village.  I'd rather go there than the Brooklyn Brewery.  Mug's Ale House is around the corner from Brooklyn Brewery if you're in the neighborhood.

Very pretty indeed.
Welcome to the forum.  How do you pronounce rgnlkngtylrbmbstk?

It's tough (for me at least) coming up with a new clone recipe.

Most confusing is the unknown, whether Rogue's 60 is Rager, Tinseth, or something else. I just want to be in the same ball park.

Have you seen a recipe for Double Dead Guy?
I believe Rogue's 60 IBU's is measured after the brew.  Tinseth and Rager are projected estimates.

I saw the following invention by a homebrewer once: he glued a hydrometer flask into a plastic bowl (I think it was a spreadable margarine tub), filled the bowl with water and stuck it into the freezer.  I thought that was pretty clever.

What I don't understand in the weaze situation is why these friends don't make up for their mooching with offers of six packs of beer from the store?  Where's the "give" in "give and take?"  Wouldn't you think it's normal to thank the generous host by replacing his offer with something they themselves could provide?  I'd be saying, "I know I can't replace what you made with your own hands, but would you like some of this Snake River IPA?"  What these guys are doing is just not normal.
