Equipment and Software / Re: Input on corking a Belgian
« on: May 11, 2017, 07:55:54 PM »
Gotcha, think we have different units (mine was $90 but looks essentially like yours) when I need to bottle some brews with those corks I'm sure I'll need to improvise somehow

I shop at Dan's place if I haven't mentioned that before. Been there 3 times in the last 2 weeks, I guess because I'm a poor planner sometimes

It seems most likely that the Caps can do well in the playoffs the next time the Penguins don't make the playoffs or get eliminated early. 9-1 all time for Pens over Caps in Playoffs. And also, the last 2 times the Pens beat the Caps in the playoffs, the Pens win the Stanley Cup both times. Bring it on Ottawa

The only bad thing is that both conference finals are already determined. That means no playoff Hockey tonight! Maybe I'll watch NBA playoffs... Nope, Cavs are already through to the finals after a second sweep. Yawn...

Phil, with the Ferrari, do you need an attachment to do the Belgian corks, or just the straight post to get them to mushroom?

Not familiar with that kit, so we can help better if you tell us what's in it and we can go from there

Between buckets and kettles, do you use over the other for either, or are they essentially interchangeable?

I use nothing but Craftmeister.  The alkaline cleaner works better with cold water than PBW works with hot water.  Here's a comparison we did, complete with pics...https://www.experimentalbrew.com/blogs/drew/craftmeister-cleaners-picturing-carboy-test .  Not only does it clean better, but it rinses more easily than PBW or Oxiclean.
Denny, Having seen that comparison before, I now have a question for you. Is this how you normally clean your equipment, with just an extended soak, or do you use some kind of agitation or scrubbing? If scrubbing, I'm sure even the most frugal of us could use lees cleaner in a smaller volume of water to get the job done

The best advice is to wait until boil gets going to take a post mash sample for OG. the boil should get it all pretty well mixed together. You can test gravity of separate runnings and then do some math (not sure of the math, likely averaging the gravities and volumes of the separate runnings) to predict the actual post mash OG, but once boil is going is the easier route

All Grain Brewing / Re: IPA hopping technique survey/poll?
« on: May 11, 2017, 12:46:53 PM »
Lagers - 60 min boil addition and possibly late boil additions (style dependant). No whirlpool/steep or dry, with the exception of 'IPLs'.

Belgian ales - same as above, ie., kettle only additions.

American ales - 60 min boil addition, all/flavor aroma additions at cooling to 175F (steeped 20-45 mins), then dry hopped.
Same here, but have not done any Belgian styles as of yet

I agree wholeheartedly about playoffs. Most important thing to remember about playoff Hockey and hockey fans is this: We watch the games, not the commercials (NFL) we would die to miss a game/sell our seats(MLB last year both in Cleveland and in Chicago) and this trophy is too important to award to a team that has not been through at least 16 games to win it (NBA has this right as well). Don't mind me, just my usual NHL playoff rambling to show why hockey is the best sport in the World!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What Cannot be put into beer?
« on: May 11, 2017, 10:24:34 AM »
There's that recipe in the Joys of Homebrewing that has chicken in it. I'm not sure where I draw the line with ingredients that shouldn't go in beer, but its definitely long before chicken. I think its an old historical recipe.
Awesome, kind of the way I think about clams in a brew,  ;)

If you did not know, the Penguins won game 7 tonight and are moving onto the Eastern Conference Final. The 70s stache will be around for at least 4 more games, and at least 10 more days, getting bigger by the day. Here's hoping it lasts for 8 more wins just like last year!
