Kegging and Bottling / Laziness Test
« on: July 10, 2014, 09:27:08 PM »
I blew a keg of Scottish a couple days ago. It just so happens that I have one ready to keg. So im going to test the limits of laziness tomorrow and just open the blown keg, rack the new beer into it, seal, starsan the connects, and put it back into the kegerator.

Wish me luck

Yeast and Fermentation / Roeselare
« on: July 07, 2014, 04:55:07 PM »
My next brew day is a couple sours. I'm pitching Roesalare in each. I've ordered 4 propogators. Do you guys make starters? Do you guys oxygenate the wort before pitching?

The beers are each 5 gallon in the neighborhood of 1.055. Would two packs each be enough without a starter?

Loaded up at Safeway
Two towns ciderhouse
A cherry one and made marion,  with black berries I pressume. Both very tasty. The marion berry tasted fake a little, and the cherry was uber pie cherry. Tart but tasty. Made me wish it was a logsdon cerasus.

One fermented with transit yeast and maple surple. Wasn't so sure but dang me! Very tasty.
One done normal but with honey. Good but not as good.

Angry Orchard...
Coors light of cider
Glad I grabbed a six pack, cuz my palate is shot and it don't matter. Woo hoo

The Pub / New Movie Game Thread
« on: June 21, 2014, 06:18:49 PM »
I've enjoyed the movie line game thing. Thought I'd start a second one. Similar but different. Two real movie titles combined in some way, or a twist on an old title, but then you create the "famous line" from your new movie.

Yeast and Fermentation / First Funky
« on: June 14, 2014, 01:17:46 PM »
I'm kicking around trying my hand at a wildish beer. For the sake of this thread I'm not concerned with style guides or any competition results or trying to clone anything. I'm just checking my understanding of how this rolls.

Generally what I am considering doing is a bigger beer, about 1.080, on my house ale yeast. Fairly clean profile. Then secondary on cherries. Then rack it off to one of my polycarbonate buckets with an airlock, and pitch Roeselare. Then keep that in a spare room in the house for however long it takes. Is it true that its done when the pelicle falls? Like anywhere from a few months to a year?

This thread is for those of us who aren't going to NHC so we don't feel left out.

My itinerary that week is to work Tuesday through Friday, Saturday I might get crazy and mow my lawn. Sunday I might go get a cord of firewood just for kicks.

Yeast and Fermentation / Temp probe placement
« on: May 31, 2014, 06:42:09 PM »
Tomorrow im doing an 80/- that will be 1.050 and an APA that will be about 1.060, both with wyeast 1728 at 62º.

Which one would you put the controller temp probe on? Im leaning toward the bigger beer, assuming it will have more internal temp increase, and longer active fermentation.

I think I'll step up the temp a couple degrees a day to 68º starting after the krausen falls on the APA. Kind of attenuation insurance.

Is it possible? My favorite style is 80/- and now one of my favorite bands is Battlefield Band. What's happening to me?

75º out. No clouds or wind. Watching my waife mow around my Gravensteins.  Drinking store bought Icecicle Dirtyface. Listening to Critton Hollow hammered dulcimer bluegrass.  Life am good

Other Fermentables / First wine try
« on: May 06, 2014, 02:42:04 PM »
A friend has guaranteed me 3 5 gallon buckets of Muscat Blanc grapes this fall. So, anyone have a simple easy to follow wine steps that a brewer could follow? Special ingredients needed? How critical is fermentation temp, and for how long if it is?
