I like Midnight Wheat for it - it has the least roast. And then add 2-3 oz chocolate for the touch of roast.

Do you mash the midnight wheat and chocolate as normal? I've been contemplating adding the roasted malt during the sparge.

Going to get mostly color with little else contributing if removed from the mash

i just use gelatin in the keg -that with cold conditioning makes a brilliant beer for me.
+1, works great!

+2.  I only use it on certain styles. I find it can strip a yeast oriented beer of some of its character (saison and other Belgians, hefe,etc.).

same here..good point.

In all seriousness, I find this place like home unlike the other forums. While I've never met any of the regular and frequent members of this forum I've exchanged many pms and have recievd great answers to my questions. I also feel as though I've helped a few along the way as well.

Its a friendly place with friendly people, members sign their names sometimes and you don't get belittled. Threads can get derailed sometimes but its all in fun and you're not threatened for doing so or made to feel like an idiot if you don't know something.

I'm not saying the other forums don't bring value, its just that this one is a more friendly place overall!

as it should be....

Be prepared for very expensive food, beer, and entertainment.


I have not been in years, but have heard good things about Public House. It is at the Venetian/Palazzo.

go every year...public house is good. hofbrauhaus beer is good, no their best location but worth a stop. i always like to go in mcmullan's on tropicana blvd.

When did we start boiling the yeast?

or perhaps, when did we stop.

does anyone see Fat Head's distributed in their area? The Head Hunter IPA is pretty dang good.

http://fatheadscleveland.com/beer.html

Very good stuff. I had Hop JuJu the other day. Also very good. Sunshine daydream session IPA also good. Trail Head also good... They do hoppy beers very well lol. Shakedown stout is a very nice American stout.

just bought sixer of fat heads Gudenhoppy Pils. i don't recall ever having it, so hope its good.
Kinda high jacked the thread... I haven't had it either. Hop Stalker was good too. Fat Heads does beer well. They'd take off fairly well if they distributed across the country.

it happens..kind of looked like hophunter was drained anyway.....now back to your original programming

I'd like to drain several bottles of it into a glass if I could find it. However, I do have a Head Hunter in the fridge  :P

ok im hijacking again...Gudenhopppy German Pils is awesome! might be more hoppy then some like, but im a northern germany kinda pils guy. cant believe i haven't had this before.

Wait, we're human?
Some would say we tend to get a bit emotional about our beer but that's a whole other topic:)

well, sure. i always answer my wife with, "yes, I have feelings and emotions dear."   i just don't qualify what they are related to...

All of this outpouring of emotion is making me weepy, I need a beer...

my wife often reminds me that men are humans with emotions also....even if we don't want to  ::)

Obviously she's wrong.... But that's something that we won't admit either  :P
well of course she's wrong (whispering quietly so not to be overheard)...that's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Not sure how I feel about this. I don't necessarily feel it will lead to underage drinking, but it's a little odd. I guess it isn't much different from Tiny Pliny shirts from Russian River.

yeah not sure i would want the kiddos to emulate my beer drinking..let them find their own path.

My biggest pet peeve is "this has been asked before...search the forum before asking the same question again"  While it is good advice, sometimes the search functions don't provide the results you are looking for.

And it truly hate the "LMGTFY" posts...You go to all the effort to type the search into this website, then post the link on a forum to basically call people lazy.

Bottom line:  Rule #1 of the Brewer's Code - Don't be a dick!

 I don't mind a little good nature razzing.....its what we do sometimes. I did chuckle when i got the LMGTFY- it wasn't meant to be mean in that case.
I know I am a rookie brewer but I now feel really stupid for having to google LMGTFY! Doh!

don't be....i had to do the same thing!
I feel very lucky to have found this forum, this is the only forum I have ever been active on for any topic and it has been very enriching and educational as well

i hear you. i went from 0-60 quickly in brewing because of this forum and a few good folks that took their time to mentor me.
