I mean I would never have guessed they had a special name for them

Thanks Amanda, forgot about how to Google momentarily
Easier than me saying 'it's the thing that bitters or hot sauce usually get packaged in'. Which isn't too terribly descriptive. ;)
Yeah, to me they are just a bottle

Speaking of drying it out, isn't that mash temp a bit high for a DIPA? I think you would want more around 148-150 for some more dryness, but I've only made 1 DIPA, and it was from a kit: I just blindly followed the directions

I brew Pro-Prohibition Pilsner (Pre-Pro Pils) for my non-craft beer drinking family members. Pre-Pro Pils is light enough for the BMC crowd and tasty enough for the craft beer crowd.  My usual grist is 20% maize/80% American 2-row.  My hop of choice for Pro-Pro Pils is Liberty.
Mark, what yeast are you using when you make this? Something we can find commercially or something a little more special from your bank?

Thanks a lot, a real cool look at how what we use is made, could wind up on TV's "How its Made"

Thanks Ken, I have one on the calendar later in the year that I've seen you post before. Pils, melanoiden, and a bit of something else. I don't have it in front of me but it's in beersmith w your name on it

Loved it the first time Jon, but this will be my first 10g batch and no pumps. Gonna have to rig up some sort of gravity system on the fly to make it work and not kill my back,

I will be brewing another 10g of Ron "Bluesman's" Ringler Pilsner from the wiki. 18.25# Avangard Pilsner, bittered with Mittelfrueh (I think the real deal) and finished with domestic  "Hallertauer" cause that's what I have left. Again going to split half w 830, half w 833. I loved the 830 and SWMBO loved the 833. The first batch hit 4 weeks lagering last weekend and there are only 8 12oz bottles left. Just put together starters for the brew, as the vials were not nearly as fresh as I would have liked:2&3 months old. Starting with 1L @1.034 each, stepping up as big as I can after that. Picture of the "twins" below

Congrats brewday and the saison looks nice

Bio looks great Toby. Been a while since I was in Louisiana, but always enjoyed the area. Yes I was just a drunken tourist in NOLA, but great stuff all the same

Yes it's now set at 66, but was set at 65 when I woke up and was reading 67. It is definitely rocking and the 1007 is right there with it, just not quite as aggressive but still chugging along
