Geez, man, you say that like 58 is old!  :)

But it is old.  :D

Just kidding. I am a believer that you are as old as you feel.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Grain Depth

I use a  58qt rectangular cooler and I've done many 5 gallon batches getting 75-80% efficiency and pretty good clarity. I've even made Pilsners that were fairly clear into the primary with my set-up. As long as your making beers in the 1.040ish and up, you should have good results with a 70 quart extreme.

Equipment and Software / Re: Circular vs Rectangular Mash Tun

I currently use a rectangular cooler and it's easier to dough-in with my mash paddle as I can break up the dough balls against the flat wall.

Hey guys.  It's been a while since I've chimed in, so I thought I'd post some photos of what I was up to in the kitchen yesterday.

Potato sopes with goat cheese, salsa verde, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime


Puerco verde tacos with homemade tortillas, refried beans with crumbled cotija cheese, and a vienna lager to wash it down




Looks and sounds tasty. I haven't tried these yet. Looks like a nice appetizer.

I like most of their beers. I really like Hop Devil. I am going to the brewpub tomorrow to meet up with my guitar player. He hosts an open jam on Monday nights. Anyway, I am planning to try some of their beers on tap. I wonder how the averall quality will differ from their bottled beer.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sam Adams Noble Pils
« on: January 30, 2010, 07:45:06 PM »
I just tried this beer for the first time today and it was good. The Noble German hop flavor is pretty good, but I think it's missing that spicy element that is typically found in that particular variety. I give it a "real nice try" and enjoyed it but not a "German" Pils by any means.

Check out this fine East Coast band out of Athens, Georgia. It's considered Southern Country and Alt-country with a "three axe attack".

The Drive By Truckers

Other than that just want the Bells coming back East this time around.

Me 2.

I can't get it locally. I actually got to try this fine IPA in North Carolina. I want to try their Brown Porter the next time I get a chance. It won Gold in the 2008 GABF.

Nugget Nectar is a very good beer.  Pretty well balanced at >90IBU. ;D

A very good EC beer. Imperial Amber seasonally brewed between January and March.
