Yes, it works and it's quiet and doesn't cycle on very often.
Haven't found an "energy star" on it, but it seals well.
Isn't it cool that something 76 years old still works like it should?

Was this an extract or all-grain batch?  How much malt?

I inherited this circa 1934 GE Monitor Top refrigeration machine.  Works great.  The hard part was getting it from Cincinnati to Tampa.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How do you blend your beers.
« on: September 11, 2010, 01:14:16 PM »
I've been known to blend kegged beers when bottling for competitions, mostly to make an overly smokey rauchbier a little milder and maltier by blending with a bock or a fest beer.  I experiment with the amounts to taste and then fill the bottles to a certain point with one and then top off with the other.
I've hear of others who brew a strong version of a beer, say a light lager or a scottish ale, and then add boiled, cooled, carbonated water to mimic the "weaker" beer in the same category.
As far as being consistent across batches, do you mean the base beers or the blended results?

Because they're British and part of the EU.  That's why they mash in degrees Celsius and use EBC for colour.
Those would be examples of measurements that are different from most "English" measurements.  Celsius vs. Fahrenheit, EBC vs. Degrees Lovibond.  From what I read, EBU's and IBU's are the same, which is why I asked why there would be two names.  If an IBU of 35 is the same as an EBU of 35, why call it by a different name just because you're overseas?

WIKI says, "European Bittering Unit, should be the same as IBU"
If it's the same, why are there two names?

What's EBU?  English bittering unit?  Estimated bittering unit? Eastkentgolding bittering unit?

Good luck on the test, Ron!

No brewing for me this weekend....I'll still have garage/brewery torn up doing plumbing.

Thanks...I think I'll need it.
You seem to have a good grasp of the material.  Remember to practice writing your answers - you'd be surprised how tired your hand gets after three hours of work writing the exam.

Other Fermentables / Re: Fruit Uses Post Fermentation

I've tasted the cherries from the bottom of a sour Old Ale our club made and they were flavorless and mushy.  Not exactly appetizing.  A lot of trub collects on the fruit, too, which makes for funky flavors.  I'd say, not a good idea to reuse it, but you may want to taste it for yourself.

So I didn't get Tech Talk on Monday the 30th, but did receive it in my email Tuesday the 31st.  That's the last I heard of it.  What happened?  I saw a reference to TT version 2, but so far nothing.  'Just wondering what I missed.

Wouldn't you know it?  While I was in here typing the propane tank emptied.  A few more minutes until knock out......

20 minutes from knock out on a traditional bock.  This is the second brew in a row with no problems.  Unless you count overadjusting the pH too low.  The Kolsch from two weeks ago went into a keg and a carboy today also.  I feel like I'm getting something dsone!  And tomorrow is a Holiday!
