Meh, you guys are just bias against the poor Russians and their manly leader. ;D

How many of you need a geography lesson like me?

Not really a lager; ferment around 58-60.

Not too many folks here brew one gallon patches I don't think.
Northern Brewer has a lot of proven recipes and are cool enough to post them.  Take a look.

Yeah I just said all that crazy stuff but  :D
I lol'ed at that. ;D

So, to be clear, if you give away your spent grain, are you still under these new rules?

 :) Poor Denny. I was thinking the same thing Mort...Denny, here make us a good recipe with Magnum and Fuggles please. 
At least they have some Chinook.

Sounds like they need to get some more varieties planted if they want to make beer from all their own hops.

I saw that CTZ is now available in organic...all you need is some Mt. Hood and you are good to go. ;D

Agreed on craft brewers needing to expand into lesser known varieties.  The Simcoe Citra Amarillo crowd is getting large and demanding. I see a trend to sourcing local hops. Seems like quite a few regions are popping fop farms.

Is he holding a bottle of Baltika? No getting mad at the toilet and throwing your Baltika at it. ???

Geez, I guess the world of international sportsing
likes to have "proper" toilets that flush paper and stuff. ::)

Women ski jumping!  Crazy people.  I was affected deeply in my youth by the agony of defeat clip on Wide World of Sports.

That might have been the best superbowl
if you were a seahawk fan. ::)

Wow. They dominated. Every phase of the game.
Denver never recovered from that first snap.

Hats off to the Seahawks.  They earned that title.

I don't think the Colorado audience got much out of those ads.
Too stunned to concentrate.  ???
I recall being intrigued by one
until it turned into the first car commercial.

It was all down the tube from there.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Extract volume question
« on: January 25, 2014, 01:10:46 PM »
Any recipe that calls for 8.9 lbs of LME is overly precise.
I think just getting relatively close to what is suggested is a reasonable course, especially with LME.

But yes. Get a digital scale...for grain and hops! ;)

Sucks you have to work on Saturday.

But maybe you need to be there to sign autographs. ;D

Other Fermentables / Re: Kambucha anyone?

Well the green tea/coconut mixture worked, but not my favorite.
Thought I got a little sulphur on the nose from it.
Plus, it made my pretty white SCOBY all brown and sorry looking. :o

I am trying brown sugar with black tea this week. 

I added a little elderberry extract to the stuff I containerized...pretty easy flavoring.

Have yet to try the hops...but I did mix in a little SNCA into my glass one day...not impressive. :-[

Hey, thanks for all the excellent thoughts and recommendations!
It helped me clear up my perceived needs considerably.

I am going to simmer a bit, and give it some more thought. :)

 ;D. People still read the newspaper?

I say hells yes.
All the world is increasingly technical,
and it is helpful to recall that all things need not be complicated.

Cheers to bathtubs and the smell of wort on Sunday morning. ;)
