It appears thirsty is right. A buddy in BE right now went to a bar where it wasn't when we tripped there many moons ago and now it's right on the menu. Figures...

It's what I do, stir anytime you are adding heat and then a few minutes after you turn off the heat. Works great for me.

Thanks guys, I figured it was something like that, but such an absolute number threw me for a loop and my four function calc and one cup of coffee brain just wasn't cutting the mustard on this one... ;D

I certainly hope everyone understands how/why sugar is utilized in brewing...I'm looking for the mathematical proof of Fred's statement...

I thought about that and still couldn't wrap my head around it. If I threw in a pound of sugar into 5 gallons of a 1.045 beer I take the OG to 1.054. With an 85%AA of the initial wort (1.045), it would have finished at ~1.007, the sugar component should go to completion or 100%AA, so it must be in there somewhere, but the brain ain't what it once was... ;)

So sometimes I'm thick. Fred said a pound of sugar in 5 gallons would lower the FG by 0.0027, for some reason I just can't get my brain around where that comes from...perhaps too much travel.

I'm thinking a pound of sugar is 45 pts (some say more, some say less). 45/5 = 9 pts per gallon, the sugar essentially ferments to completion leaving 1.000 out of the 1.009 we started with. Of course that is a pure sugar/water ferment. Take me the rest of the way to the 0.0027 since I'm not coming up with it...(where's the head scratching emoticon when needed)

Probably a dumb question, but do you have a washer on your regulator...if you don't know - check, if you are sure you do - look for leaks elsewhere, if you do not - voila, problem solved...

IME pretty close. Part of the allure of W12 is how difficult it is to procure. If it was on the grocery store shelf on every corner of American would people still crave it? I suspect the answer is no...

I hope to have a contractual obligation to mention Wynkoop next year ;)

Seriously, I drank more there than anywhere else. I felt pretty lousy during the time we were in Denver, we didn't make it too many places in Denver proper.
