Brews are chugging along nicely,  and I think I successfully plated my first yeast strain in my very own homemade plates.

A few weeks ago I made some plates and slants, non were contaminated after incubating for a few days. After my first try at streaking, and 48 hrs of incubating,  I have two plates with nothing but pristine snow white yeast colonies.



Crappy photo, but it worked! I just selected singles and inoculated three slants. Woo hoo! If this works, I'll actually have continuous access to my favorite lager strain. No more waiting for a PC release

I believe Drew has used some of those.  It was a brand he recommended on a recent podcast.  Hey, aren't you listening?  ;)
Drew might be the "friend" he's talking about

I still dont understand why you'd take the bottle off until it's empty...

I prefer using extra light DME. A 3 lb bag makes a bunch. Easier too. For those who dont know there is an easy way to remember how much to use. Weight in grams per volume in 100 millileters equals percentages that equate to ºplato. Times that by 4 for specific gravity. 5g per 100ml equals 5% equals 5ºP equals 1.020

I normaly half fill a 2qt jar with hot water, stir in my DME and a pinch of nutrients with a wisk, then fill to the 2000ml mark. You end up with break material that way, but just pour carefully.  If you dont want break, boil the DME and chill so it doesn't crack the jars, then fill by pouring through a coffee filter.

When we were in Bend they had Disidant at Safeway for $15 per bomber. I picked up a case. Then sat it back down.

The best way to ensure no petroleum products get inside the regulator is to NOT EVER use it.

It's all good. After we all get used to it they will change it again.

At Best of Craft I was in a good debate over the idea of judging commercial beer against the style guides. It seems to me that the style guides are describing what commercial brewers have done, or are doing. If there's an awesome beer that pushes the guidelines a little, in my opinion the beer should win that fight. Over time, if there's enough awesome examples pushing the lines, the lines should move. Obviously not when it comes to historical styles... but

BJCP is calling it a German Helles Exportbeir. No connection to Munich Helles' malt profile other than they are both light colored.

I'm learning that trying to nail a world class Munich Helles is like trying to sink a 40' putt with a 40 pound putter and the hole is the same size as the ball.
