The Pub / Re: Beer tracking app?
« on: March 19, 2010, 08:08:00 AM »
Does anybody know of a decent beer tracking app for either android and/or iphone? I'm looking for something where I can simply take a photo of the beer and add related notes.

Those phones have webbrowsers so you should be able to use a site like beer advocate when mobile. I would be worried about losing my data if I decided to change phones or upgrade if the data is stored locally on the phone. 

+1 - or

so another buddy just called - he's coming over to brew 12gal of witbier as well.  that brings the total up to 40gal for saturday - definitely a record at my house!

let me clarify that a bit - its not 'sweeter' its got what ryan described, and I think fits well, more of a malt candy like flavor.    I guess its just more malt flavor, if you wanted to be simpler. 

its one of those flavors that is hard to accurately describe, but you'll know it when you taste it.

Has anyone tried a German Pils with Best. Don't all answer at once now. Anyway how does it compare to Weyermann?

I think you know my answer - i make about 2-3 pils batches a year, and 2-3 dorts.   I used to be a Weyermann man, but Best takes the gold by many strides.  

oh yeah -- you wanted to know how it compares?  a little more malt candy sweetness (you have to taste it to know what I mean), and the pils malt aroma just seems to be bigger - like it jumps out of the glass and smacks you in the face.

Just packaging a few up for the NHC.

nice - I need to try my hand at the NHC one of these days - do you have to prequalify at another event like MCAB or is it open to any and all?  Good luck!

So see if they'll help you with a 5 gallon recipe and brew it yourself!

we told you Best was the shiz-nit!

I won a sack of cargill german pils last spring, made a german pils with it and all my beer friends asked me "What happened to the malt flavor on this batch?"  nothing different, just inferior raw material!

that's too bad - its one of the few beers I actually enjoy from Lag.

big brew day at my house:

I'm brewing 12g of Citra-Simcoe Pale and my buddy's brewing 12g of Oatmeal Stout, which we'll swap a keg each of, then after my pale is in the fermentor, 12g of house IPA for the festivities portion of my club's competition.

very excited - lots of beer will be flowing once we get to the end of the IPA as well.

Thanks.  Was thinking about using 2 ounces so I might be safe.

I did a ginger wit a few years back and used 1.5oz for 5g - you could definitely detect it, but it wasn't overpowering - 2oz should be nice - 6oz is a bit insane, if you ask me.

I love spending time with my dogs. I walk my dogs a couple of miles every day. They are raring to go as soon as I get home. Today was great, it was about 60F and the sun a shining. It's such a stress relief for them and myself to gat out for that daily walk. I love my dogs like best friends. You know the old saying...

68-69% actually - I always enter 65% as well - never hurts to lowball the big guys, IMO.

to give you some scale, I usually get 77-78%.

the roasted barley, black patent, and chocolate in mine total around 9% (off the top of my head).

also, don't forget as it ages those will mellow, so keep that in mind.

Valid point taken. I definitely want to age this properly.

So far, I think mine's been aging a little over 3 months.  I plan on letting it go until next fall.  It will be next winters big beer.  I tried to model it after Old Rasputin.  Only time will tell.

I take it by your post that Ron used your grist?

Got some 2 year aged going right now...yum..

This may be a silly question, but what is a chicken tenderloin? 

that flap on the underside of a breast. 

you can usually just tear it right off the breast.
