I'd like to ask people to put their location into their profile. It kinda makes things a bit more personalized, and helps brewers near each other to get together if the want to. Kinda like the old Rennerian coordinates in HBD!
I won't lie. I'm just in it for the beer.
never heard of oxygenating AFTER pitching yeast. I've always done before - what was the reasoning there?
18-30 hours is a good range to expect.
I have just ALWAYS done it that way. I guess someone told me that it helps mix up the (liquid) yeast. And that's when I started was using air and an aquarium stone. (About 60 batches ago) I've been using O2 for a couple of years, just for the time savings.
One of my favorite comedy groups, Firesign Theater, used to talk about "the far flung Isles of Langerhans"....
Wow, Schaefer. I had forgotten about them. "Schaefer is the one beer to have when you're having more than one."
Probably the first beer I ever tried, in 5th grade or something when I snuck one from the fridge. I thought it was made in NY. Geez, this would have been the early '70s, probably.
The Detroit brewery that made Stroh's closed in the early 80's. (About the time my Grandpa had to give up beer due to diabetes... coincidence? Stroh's, Schlitz, Old Milwalkee are all the same company... until about 2000 when Pabst bought a section of the company.Schaefer has been continuously available since the original brewery closed and it's been a Pabst brand for quite a few years. Of course the current beer is an imposter, as Schaefer was one of those rare BMC beers of years gone by that always had a bit more character than some of the others.
Since Pabst re-introduced Schlitz, it makes sense that they would do Stroh's as well. Heck maybe they will come back with Schaefer as well... another brand made by the Stroh's/Schlitz/Old Milwalkee company.
...but I do think Sam Adams BL was better years ago.
really? man, cause when you get it fresh (exp date 4-5 months out from today's date) that stuff is hard to beat.
Entirely agree on Thomas Hardy's - its simply brand exploitation now
