I know they own the one in Rehoboth Beach, and I believe they own the one in Gaithersburg as well.

I too lager in kegs and use gelatin as a fining agent in some beers.  I pressurize for carbonation at the same time.   I have found that carbonation does not interfere with drop out during the fining process.

I would agree with Tom.  It may have been served from the fermentation vessel before fermentation was complete.  Or that new beer was made by adding some of the old beer to the fermentable wort (yeast for fermentation, krausening, etc.)

No brewing.  Stone work on my fireplace.  Three Christmas parties.  Finish Christmas shopping.

I keep open bags of grain in big Rubbermaid bins.  A year is no problem.

Me too. Although they usually don't last a year. ;)

Oh man, ever have poppers? is that only a North East thing?

They are cherry peppers stuffed with a little piece of aged provolone wrapped in some prosciutto then packed in olive oil. Just wonderful when they are made right.

Love 'em.  What's nice is that you can get them almost anywhere from the mid-Atlantic to Boston and they are pretty much the same.  Like a good hoagie without the bread. 8)

We get these peppers called ancient sweets at BJs.  They are are long red pepper grown in Canada (look like giant cayenne) that are supper sweet.  I roast them on the grill and then just pack them with fresh garlic.  No oil is needed, the natural oils in the peppers is sufficient.  They are quite yummy and good for you too.  I pickle jalapenos and scotch bonnets.  The jalapenos are very tasty as are the scotch bonnets, but the scotch bonnets seem to cause me some pain the next day. ;)

AFAIAC, the best part of homebrewing isn't the's the people you share the beer with!

I've tried Promash, Beersmith and Beertools and settled on Beersmith.  I've been using it for a few years and it works well for me and I prefer the user interface compared with Prolmash or Beertools.

It is unlikely that a long boil will cause this problem.  It could be the amount of roasted grains used or perhaps the water chemistry (if your pH is already low, the addition of roasted grains would take it out of range on the low end).

Like Denny, I use a hop bag (like cheesecloth almost), sanitize, put the hops in, tie it up and chuck it the keg.  I don't tie it to the dip tube.  Some folks have had issues with it clogging the tube.  I have only had that happen once, but it was easily remedied by taking my mash paddle and pulling it away from the tube. YMMV.
