I'll be camped out on the porch waiting on the UPS guy on the 4/30  :P

Really. I don't care if it's a little late. I'm just uber stoked to try your beers!

This is my first swap since my hiatus stretched across the last two. So, I'm a bit excited. Looking to be inspired to broaden my horizons a bit with this.

big bomber of cat p*ss for you frank   ;D

So Frank, how would you feel about your local-commercial beer being a sour fruited beer? A friend of mine (Michael Crane) started a brewery with a group last year and they've been doing some amazing things. Featured in DRAFT recently: http://draftmag.com/crane-brewing-fruit-sours/ The Orange Gose is probably my favorite beer in existance. It's perfect.

I trust your judgement! Sounds great!... I was just hoping that it wasn't Bud Light lol

Same way as shipping to a competition.

Also, if you ever get a shipment of wine delivered you can re-use those boxes.  They work well for shipping bottles, since that's what they were designed for.

Use an on-line account and print your UPS shipping label at home.  I've never been asked what's in the box.

^^^this is what I do also, then just take and drop off at UPS store.

Realizing how interesting it is to taste and observe these beers side by side in the sampler glasses. The mineral aspects of the dort really pop and stand out in comparison after taking sip of the Pils . I also realize how pale yellow the Pils really is.



Since these are 5oz tasters, do you find both of them to be too dark for the style?
Neither- Pils is pale yellow and dort is what I want for Dort gold.

Ok, must be the lighting then cause I see the pils as darker golden and the Dort as light amber.

could be the black granite and lighting. . pretty light straw yellow2-3 srm.

I love the idea of a swap, and reading in on your guys reviews is awesome!  not only a great idea for keeping the beer community connected, putting beer to usernames, and improving our homebrew skills. 

How are you guys going about sending this out to everyone?  fedEx? UPS? USPS? all I believe get fussy over liquids, and I don't think we can tell them it is beer can we?

fedex and ups dont ask questions, so i dont tell  ;D

usps asks- so wouldnt recommend using that.

bubbble wrap, plastic baggies, packed securely with buffer around bottles and should be aOK.

I just made a German pils with 100% Weyermann Barke pils malt.  Single infusion at 148F for 90 minutes.  Delicious beer, crystal clear.

My last pils used Bestmaltz pilsner malt at 150f for 60 minutes that turned out really good and I can't see where all the trouble of a step mash would improve it enough to make it worthwhile.

might not...might. you'd have to try to decide.


A general trend is emerging with people experiencing positive results with a 60/60 Hochkurz.

and its nothing new. been going on for at least 100's of years probably. end of the day- yes it' s more time vs single infusion. so with that you would have to try, evaluate, and decide for yourself if its what you want to do or not.  really-that's the fun in brewing for me.

I just meant it as a positive comment.
No worries, understood.

Are you sold on your new steam method? I'm going to try it on my next Tripel.
Well it's working for me. Cheap, effective way for me to step.

Yep, cheers to that. Gotta take in all this cool info and spin it into your own style.
Amen. The only thing that truly ever ruffles my feathers on this forum is when someone says " I never , so it's not true....or I did, so its fact".
Well, like I've said, the Germans don't cut corners because it is worth the time, effort, and cost to them. They wouldn't bother with it otherwise.
I wish I didn't perceive a difference...gives me couple hours back each brew day!

Should I be concerned that this weekend is still January 2014?   ;)

Paul
Mind as well be with the cold and snow many of us are experiencing in April.
