Five different IPA's in the tap room isn't really a variety.

Beer Recipes / Brown IPA / Noti Brown?
« on: August 05, 2015, 03:56:07 PM »
    The club I belong to set up a competition, where they draw a beer style out of a hat and that's what you have to brew. I wound up with "Brown IPA" which has me scratching my head.
    The only brown I have brewed that is any good is Denny's Noti Brown.
In beersmith it hits all the numbers for brown ipa except the color is a few srm's to dark.
    Any opinions on if this would score well as a brown ipa? Or if anyone has a good recipe they would like to share that would be cool.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Miller Lite vs. O'Doul's
« on: July 12, 2015, 04:10:36 PM »
Hmmm, try moving all of your furniture out of the house then back in, then try the Miller. It might make it better.
Very true.
But the O'douls still had more flavor.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Miller Lite vs. O'Doul's
« on: July 12, 2015, 02:45:12 PM »
Just in case anyone had to make a decision between the two.
Yesterday I was helping my father inlaw move some furniture.
I bummed one of his O'Doul's.
I was hot and thirsty it tasted really good.
Today I had a Miller Lite my daughter left in our fridge.
The O'Douls was better.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Star san foam
« on: June 23, 2015, 03:53:04 PM »
I always scoop the foam off the top when I fill kegs. I'm sure it's not really necessary but I do it anyway.
And I always wondered if it is bad for the yeast when I collect yeast in jars that have starsan foam / residue ?

Equipment and Software / Re: 5 gallon Igloo mash tun is best for me?
« on: June 20, 2015, 10:09:21 AM »
I switched from using a five gallon round to a large rectangular cooler.
The larger rectanglar cooler didn't drain near as well. It just seemed like over kill to me. Plus the smaller one is easier to tote to the compost pile.
I went back to the round one unless I'm doing a high gravity batch that won't fit in the 5 gallon.

How large?  I respect your experience, but mine was different.

I'm pretty sure it's the 52 quart.
With the round cooler there is less floor space and in my experiance it drains better. With the rectangle cooler I'd always have to tilt it to try and get all the wort out. The round one I just open the valve and it drains itself dry.

Kegged the beer this morning, and I'm having a slightly flat sample with my lunch.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I could drink a lot of this. ;D

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What is applejack?? And is it good?
« on: June 20, 2015, 09:45:37 AM »
I jacked some cider about a year ago, I have one bottle left.
The cider was just ok, but the jacked stuff is really good.

Thanks for the replies, I think I'm going with a 5 gallon cooler. If I want to make a big beer, I may have to scale back down to 2.5 or 3 gallon. But I think the 5 gallon cooler will be serviceable as I learn more.

I'd recommend a rectangular cooler since they're easier to use and less expensive.  A 48 qt. would be perfect for you.

You can use your tukey baster to get the siphon started instead of sucking on it.
