Kegging and Bottling / Re: Competition bottling SNAFU. Advice?
« on: August 27, 2011, 09:29:44 AM »
Actually, the rules are not so rigid for bottles with raised lettering.  The intent is to have the bottles as anonymous as possible and since so many people use recycled S.A. bottles they are almost always allowed by the competition registrars.  Send two S.A. bottles and don't attempt to transfer.

11) marry a woman who loves beer.

Heck I need the exact opposite, my girl likes my home brew too much some times.
See, that's where I have the advantage having a wife who doesn't drink beer.  Mine, all mine!

My wife does not drink beer.  Wine, single malt, gin, vodka, rum, but no beer unless I ask her for an opinion on my homebrew.  She doesn't so much support my brewing as tolerate it since she knows how important it is to me.

That makes me want to go buy some and I don't even like fish sauce.

I enjoy drinking too much to slack off brewing. ;D
I don't enjoy drinking too much.  Even though I'm a veteran drinker, it makes me grumpy and slow the next day.

I totally did. ;D

Ask Denny and Jeff, they were at NHC.  Denny tried it, I'm not sure if Jeff did but he might have seen the whiteboard with the name there.  Maybe not though, it kicked pretty fast.
Of course I tried it!  Who could resist with a name like that?

One nice thing about hurricanes is that they move so slowly you have time to think about a plan.  Even if it's as close as 100 miles away it still only moves at 15 mph.  Not true with other calamities, like earthquakes or volcanoes.
Having brewers supplies makes the power outages manageable - freezer full of frozen water bottles to keep everything from spoiling, propane burners to cook stuff, big kettles to boil water.  It's all good.

I rarely have a beer before noon when I'm brewing.

My favorite maple syrup story was on NPR a couple years ago:

I remember that story it was funny! Exloding maple trees :o
The best part was at the end of the story about table syrup.  It takes a lot of time to come up with a pun that elaborate.

They've been doing some seasonals here, too.  A pretty decent APA, which they called an IPA  ;) and an American style Bock in the spring, sorta like Shiner.

Brewing a Wit on Sunday and smoking a bunch more malt.
My friend from Swamphead Brewery is coming down from Gainesville with three sacks of malt to smoke on my smoker.  The Alder Smoked Porter we made with the last batch took first place at the WaZoo beer festival out of about 250 beers, so he wants to make 10 more barrels so he can have a batch with chipotles.
(I wonder if there's a market for cold-smoked malt?  Should I start a thread on ingredients?)

Dang.  This is one reason I never leave the CO2 on.  The loss is limited to the pressure in the keg.
It's such a shame to mop up good beer.

You should ask Denny to tell you about his ale made with chanterelle mushrooms - might make you take a double take on ingredients that can and have been used in beers.  I thought he was crazy at first, now I am curious as hell to try it.  ;)

Well, Keith, you'll get a chance.  I'm gonna make a batch to serve at Club Night at NHC next summer!  The chanterelles work because they subtly blend in, unlike chiles which stomp on yer palate!
Depends entirely on the amount and type of peppers.

Enter competitions and try to understand the judges' feedback.  Learn from their comments instead of scoffing at them for dissing your beer.
