Beer Recipes / Re: CSI Lager recipes?

There are also Export strength Helles, but those are only a little stronger, say 1.056 OG vs 1.048.
And its a far more enjoyable style in my opinion

I believe Munich Helles exists for two reasons. 1. Mandatory liter while visiting Munich.  2. As a challenge for brewers, a style to hone your skills on.

2
If I were that concerned about dry hop oxidation I would do it in a second vessel, add dry hops, purge it with CO2, transfer the beer onto the hops.

The better ones take some looking to find the salt, coriander too for that matter.

Their Munich Helles might be a tasty beer but it's not a Munich Helles. If you aren't trying to brew a Munich Helles then I say go for it.

German style lager inspired by Munich Helles  may have been better?

They list it as a Maibock in the recipe menu then a Helles in the PDF. Semantics gaff I'm sure.

Who knows. Just looking to see if anyone has brewed them is all.
Maibock sounds more likely

Kegging and Bottling / Re: kegerator drilling question
« on: February 08, 2016, 01:53:33 PM »
Its hard to say where things will be. I suggest going through the outer skin only, using a hole saw with the center drill just barely sticking out past the saw. Then carefully dig out the center insulation core with an exacto knife. If you find vital lines dig enough to move them out of the way before finishing your hole. Good luck.

I have 6 Speidel 30Ls. I have 6 brand new spigots for them because I have never used them. I rack with an autosyphon.
Any particular reason?

One is that if you've ever had a spigot fail you'll find that one accident wipes out any convenience you ever gained. Two is that there is no way of knowing that the thing stayed sanitized during the long wait for the beer to finish. The tiniest leak, even just one drop, creates a petri dish that your beer has to flow over on its way to the keg or bottling bucket. I don't like them, so I don't use them.

Beer Recipes / Re: First American Red Ale Recipe Help

One key to getting RED is clarity. Once its all done, if you can, get it down to 30F for a few days and gell fine it. And/or serve it in narrow glasses.

Speidel time.

Lol... I knew this was coming! Are you getting a kickback from Speidel, Jim?

I looked into them before. They are pretty sweet!
No kickback, I wish though. They are just a fantastic product.

Yeah, carahell is nice stuff. Gonna use some in a helles and BoPils soon.

Got some going into Jim's Helles Exportbier recipe coming up next. Thanks again man for sharing!
Awesome! Looking forward to what you think. My lhbs had to order my carahell and when I picked it up he said, you know it's just crystal 10, right? Having not tasted it yet I said who knows, might be. Still haven't tasted it but by aroma when brewing... no, it ain't just crystal 10
