Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Leinikug Grapefruit Schandy
« on: May 26, 2016, 03:21:15 AM »
Can not be overstated, hands down, over the top, had to be there, beyond reasonable doubt.... most disgusting horrendous beverage I've ever tried.

Aroma: what the?
Appearance: bug killer
Flavor: inescapable fake grapefruit pitch and unwashed hands overly handled skins, which lingers on and on and on... even Listerine won't touch it.
Mouthfeel: I can't feel my mouth, or wait... hey, who's been feeling my mouth, and could someone tell them to please wash their hands next time?

Overall: give it a try, maybe you'll like it
Thanks for getting the word out. This can be said about all of Leinenkugel fruit beers. Horrifying.

(BTW, my saison is on its way to NHC finals.)

Glad to hear it!  Let us know how it goes.
will do.

I slow my runoff down after I noticed that it was sputtering while there was still loads of wort left in the tun. Adds a few minutes to the day, but meh

Same here.

Sounds interesting. I heard that also. So, when I brew my saison, I also use the white labs 644 sac yeast, along with the wlp585 yeast, to give it that barrel twang. I also use pilsner malt as my base malt. So Golden promise is a nice substitute. (BTW, my saison is on its way to NHC finals.)
I believe you have a potentially awesome, winning beer.
Please keep us up to date. Thanks.

I've got a German Pils finishing up right now with 835 German lager X .....we shall see how it turns out
I like the WLP830. I am also going to use the 835x for my German Pils. Please let us know how it turns out.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Promotional materials

We have a 36"x60" sign we hang up behind us at Festivals. It has our Club name, city, brief description of us ("A Collection of Zymologists"), and our website. I used to have an email sign up sheet. But, I don't do that anymore because about a month later, most want to be removed. So, if someone is really interested, I would collect their name and email address. I would also direct them to our website, and facebook page. Hope this helps.

I try to give my friend at our LHBS a list of ingredients I need about a month in advance. Especially if it is a unique ingredient. He always has what I need.

You put more time and effort into maintaining your home brew equipment than you do your car.  :)

You can make your shipping labels on these shipping companies website. Attach it to your package and drop it off without talking to anybody. I have done that several times without any issues.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Confessions of a Yeast Abuser

enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. I have a confession, I have abused yeast also. I am glad I am not alone any more.  ;)

I usually dump one batch about every 5 years. Either thru infection, which happens to all of us, or beer I don't like and I need the room. Cheers!

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Blue moon Belgian Pils

That seems complicated. I believe simple is better, especially with a pils.

I like to start at soon as possible. Sometimes 6 or 7 AM. That way I drink coffee when I brew. If I start in the afternoon I tend to want to drink my homebrew. I prefer not to drink and brew.
I do the same. Also, I couldn't agree with you more about not drinking and brewing. I think it is wise since you're dealing with hot wort and propane which produces CO.
