I wish I could have been there to see my Club win COTY! How awesome is that, huh?

Beer Travel / River Cruising
« on: June 13, 2015, 07:42:26 PM »
I'm daydreaming of a trip. Has anyong done a Viking River Cruise? What im looking for is sight seeing with lots of classic beer readily available. Viking seems to talk a lot about wine with little mention of beer. I sure like the idea of just stepping off the boat, seeing what I need to see and sampling some beer, then get back on the boat. Next stop...

If you have experience with Belgium/Germany beer trips, and could only go once and could only go for 7-10 days, what would you suggest? Keep in mind that sights are probably just as important as the beer, breweries aren't necessary though one or two would be awesome, and I'd pick history over shopping any day.

Must be because for it to go up 5 points you'd have to had about a half pound of sugar if its a 5 gallon batch.

Yup, if your going to sheridan then west thats the road. You'll be fine and its beautiful. If you see a sign saying 10% 10 miles, take it seriously.

If its bubbling most likely its not done so the gravity sample would be kind of a waste. I'd wait till it stops bubbling at least. Also, a lot of brewing recipes have days/weeks scheduled.  Ignore them, they are ballpark only, and probably only represent what the recipe writer usually sees. Yeast cant read calendars and rarely follow the same schedule every time. I look for lack of airlock activity, then lack of activity in the fermenter. If theres no bubbles and it looks like the yeast are settling out of solution, its getting towards done.

So am I. Your first hydrometer said 1.012 and now it says 1.017?

Do you have an airlock on it? If so is it still bubbling at all? Normally if theres no bubbling at all, and it looks to be clearing up, then it might be done and it makes sense to measure gravity.

Awesome! It took me a while to figure it out for some reason but yes, works great

Fun times. Next year we are taking the trailer to a remote dry camp on the north fork of the Flathead, just about 3 miles outside of the Camas Road entrance to Glacier. Just going to flop down, drink beer, and listen to wolves for a week.

Badlands is cool but not much to do there. Took me about an hour to see all I needed to see.

On the way from the Black Hills to Cody, Devil's Tower is well worth the detour.

Which way are you going to Cody? We take 14 from just north of Sheridan. But the Big Horns are no joke. The west side is 10% for 10 miles. There aren't too many grades like that. Fun on a bike but might be white knuckles in an RV.

Cody has a great wild west museum.

Yellowstone and GT are must see, but in my opinion the best park in the Country is Glacier. My avatar is Terri and I on the Harley going down the east side of the Going to the Sun road. There is nothing better than riding a Harley over Logan Pass.

I heard that BJCP is now in charge of announcing winners, so they should have the 2015 winners available sometime in late 2016 or early 2017.
