Are you only in for 1 night?  I've never been, but a lot of people talk about Bukoski's Tavern on Dalton Street (up near the Sheraton).

yeah meetings during the day fly out the next morning.

Ingredients / Re: How many ounces of hops in your American IPA?
« on: March 06, 2017, 10:55:17 AM »
similar to jon, but half as much at whirlpool, about 4oz per keg dryhop.   I do 10gal batches (actually 12 but I lose 1-2gallons over the process) and I average around 20-24ounce usage.

Beer Travel / Boston South Bay
« on: March 06, 2017, 08:56:14 AM »
Going to be in Boston, staying in the South Bay area (right near Boston Common).  Any breweries or bar recs?

Disappointed to see that the Trillium right near there does not have a taproom.

Worst:

1). stainless steel hop spider - great idea in theory, but when all the liquid in the cylinder became trapped due to protein break clogging the pores of the screen, it became a nuisance.

2). plate chillers - too hard to clean. they are never clean, there is always crud trapped in them somewhere.  much easier for me with a CFC.

3). overcomplicated grain bills.  as I've evolved, my beer has gotten so much better, often with only 1 or 2 specialty grains, and I have very few that have over 5 malts total.

Best:

1). similar to a comment above - having a dedicated brew room with an electric brew system has made me happier than I expected. 

2). brun water

3). fermentation chest freezers - best thing I did to upgrade my beer.

if the weather sux, might do an IPA - narrowing down to either Simcoe/Ekunaot, Galaxy/Ekuanot, or Chinook/Galaxy/Ekuanot.

If not IPA will be delayed a few weeks and then next weekend is a dortmunder export (2206 arrives tomorrow, gotta grow it up a bit first).

Sanitize a measuring cup and scoop it out.

that's a lot of crystal malt OP (25%).  also I think you're in stout range with that grist, giving it the eyeball test.  might want to rethink that - I like the 1% roasted malts and using the crystal weights to target the color you want. 

bear in mind, even mashing low, you may still not get high 70s attenuation. 

that Old Chub recipe (isn't that Oskar Blues name?) looks pretty tasty too.

Tropical C.r.E.A.M.  Citra, WaRRioR, Ekuanot, Azacca, Mosaic - little play on words plus a play on a Wu Tang acronym.

2 row plus some Carahell and Munich.
Wu Tang? Seriously? You do not strike me as a Wu Tang Clan fan...wow.


I'm going to brew a Belgian dubbel this weekend. Got some harvest WLP500 I'm excited to use.


Yeah man - I'm very eclectic everything from Metallica to the Smiths to Jack Johnson to Zach Brown to Tupac is on my phone. 

As far as rap though I pretty much only like 90s rap.

All Grain Brewing / Re: How long does it take you to brew a beer?
« on: February 10, 2017, 11:01:47 AM »
12 gallon batches - about5.5- 6 hours unless I do a long whirlpool for IPA.

That does not include dumping cold break, pitching/oxygenating as I come back an hour or two later for that.
