Good show guys. I nearly got a contact high from the interview.

Yeah, I have seen Kai's Edel hell water profile and kind of shot for in between that and yellow balanced profile. I was just curious how low one can really go (RO water) without creating a totally bland beer.Last winter I made a Helles with all DI and just 25ppm calcium from CaCl. It won first at Bend but only scored about 34. It had wrong Vienna (gambrinus vs best) and too much lactic.
Do a quick search for the "shaken not stirred method"Me too
Many here have abandoned the stir plate
I am one. After using a stir plate for years, I've found I get equal or better yeast performance without one. And it's just one more thing I don't have to deal with now.
My challenge beer is going to pretty much fit the original requirements tooSome like the original, some dont. Joe already has his recipe figured out. So lets do this... the swap is 3 beer min. The challenge beer is totally optional. If you do a challenge beer, thats in addition to the 3.
Here are the finalized Challenge Beer guidelines.
Ingredients you have to use (mandatory)
Techniques you can't use
Anything not mentioned is fair game
I might change up my hops, now that the restrictions are looser. But I might not.
Hoping to brew today, but I don't want to mill grains in the house and it's 3 outside.
Now thats a challenge!Since this is a challenge it may be an opportunity to try and make a convincing BDSA with dry yeast.Right, that's the way I was thinking. I brew extract beers quite often, but I'm thinking I want to push the boundaries a bit and brew something that I wouldn't normally do as an extract beer. Maybe a Helles...

When you say 3lbs DME must be used, is that a minimum? Or is it no more, no less.No more no less. Thats about 1.050 in a 2.5 gallon batch. Figured people could adjust gravity by volume. Or sugar, or both...
