Speaking of lagers, I'm hoping to make a Classic American Pils tomorrow.

I have talked to other award-winning brewers who do the same thing. It's easy to get three substyles out of one keg for Scottish Ales, English Pale Ales and some Light Lagers. I think they boil the water, then keg and carbonate it for blending.I know Mike McDole is a big fan of this technique. He'll have a ~8% ABV beer on tap, along with a keg of carbonated water, and dilute to whatever strength he wants.
Mike (Tasty) McDole is a seasoned veteran homebrewer, so if he does it ...it's probably a viable method.
Yeah i was expecting for people to take a while to respond.So we did in fact not scare you away? Cool!
And to respond to one of the first messages. I am making this batch for my buddies birthday in june because he asked me to.
Kegging and carbonating my own urine would be easier but i dont think he would enjoy it.
I ended up going with...
6 punds of Extra-light DME
1.2 oz Tettanger hops for 60 min
.2 oz tettanger and saaz for the last 15 min
and bohemian lager yeast Wyeast 2124
So far it seems really dark I was thinking of cutting back 3 pounds of DME and subbing something like rice solids does anyone have any suggestions?
Me neither.Changed around a bit, it is a popular phrase in SF too.It's probably something obvious, but I can't figure out what you're talking about.
Blatz - you must be a big guy to lift a full conical.
yeah, I'm bigger than the average bear, but one of my other hobbies is staying in shape - lots of deadlifting, cleans, etc. so perhaps I take lifting the conical into the fridge for granted.
in my upcoming brewhouse build, I will be pumping across the room into the conical already inside the fridge, so I won't have to worry about that anymore.
to the OP - the more I think about it, just stick with the 2 fermenters - its how I did it for years before I could ferment all in one. You can try other yeasts out, and in cases where you're using the same yeast, why not just blend the two fermentors into the kegs or bottle bucket?
I had just rebuilt the engine in an RX-8, which the customer/owner hasn't bought a license plate for and I wanted to test drive the car, so I put a tag on it that I own. I think I was pulled over for driving a yellow RX-8 (maybe it looked suspicious?), then he checked the tag number, which didn't match the car.driving a customer's car with the wrong tag on itI don't even know what this means, let alone the felony misdemeanor part.
I've always used a regular hose, never had a problem, just run some water through it first, no smell, tastes good. You guys are making me paranoid.Me, too. No smell from my hose. I've been using it for years. It isn't the skinner vinyl looking type, though.
I have to let the judge decide. That's what the nice police officer told me. (then again how nice could he be to do that knowing it was my birthday?) I got a ticket on April 6 back in the 90's for speeding 65 in a 55 zone. The trooper went out of her way to pull me over. Perhaps I should stay home next year.Sean, that sucks. Yesterday was a rough one here too, but not that bad. Hopefully you're up and running soon!A slap on the wrist...
Jeffy: what's a "felony misdemeanor"? Seems like it's one or the other...
Got my scoresheets today. That was fast! True pros at the NHC! I couldn't quite break the 40 point barrier. It's a PITA. LOL!Actually, that would be "True pros at the regional organizers" where you entered. And yes, that is fast.
