Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Delerium Tremens

I prefer the Delirium Nocturnum.  Try to find that sometime.

I agree with Gordon on this one.  DT was OK, but it didn't knock my socks off.  The Nocturnum and Noel are better IMHO.

The liquor store I go to turns over Belgians pretty often, so that it's fresh.  I've never had a bad one yet.  That being said, I enjoy dubbels, but they are not my favorite style,  I prefer their stronger counterparts for the darker styles.

Equipment and Software / Re: Giant Tea Ball for hops?
« on: November 03, 2010, 06:43:21 AM »
I think these stainless steel tea bags work great.  They fit in a corny keg with no problem.  I've used it in the boil and in the corny with aging beer, with no issue of corrosion.  I bought mine for 5 dollars.

The diameter for this tea bag is 3 inches and it holds about 2-3oz hops with enough room leftover for proper circulation.

I have one as well and they work great for pellet hops.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Dextrose (Corn Sugar) vs. Malt (DME) for Priming

Well for heavensakes..... what you really need to do is to use regular everyday common household white sugar.  Yes, sugar of the cane or beet variety.  Use 5/8 cup for 5 gallons and you're golden.  No need to buy extra DME, and no need for corn sugar, never ever again.  You've got a pound of sugar in your pantry at all times, right?  Right.

+1  I only use DME for starters and haven't used corn sugar in a long time.  That being said, I still prefer to force carb and haven't noticed any oxydation effects in my aged beers.

I have eaten them and I have made them, but I don't recall seeing anything like a Chicago pie in Italy. ;)  They also tend to be a bit more messy to eat than a flat pie which is why they are not really street food like traditional pizza is.   By the way what's gamberi then? Or perhaps gamberetti?

Hey Tom, I guess that nothing is really new under the sun! ;)

Hey Ron.  We were down at Willey's a week ago and they had raw peanuts by the bag or bulk.  We were tempted, but did not partake.

Hey Cap, how about fermenting some barley squeezin's.  Sheesh.  All ready to ferment everything but beer. ;)

Chicago style is not pizza.  Just sayin'. ;)  Flame suit on.

Yeah sure, like when Alton Brown tried and we all ripped him to shreds. Granted he's no Denny Conn; but we gotta start somewhere!

Alton Brown wears an undershirt under his aloha shirt...
Please...  Talk about a faux pas!

I bet he wears socks with his sandles too.

Well, he is pretty nerdy. :D

Why not milk?   I grew up in dairy country and to me, there is no substitute.  YMMV.  Of course if you are lactose intolerant, my sympathies and apologies. ;)  I know if I were, I would be really sad.

I have a barleywine that's about 2.5 years old and am currently drinking an oak aged RIS that's about a year old.

Brewing Denny's BVIP and kegging (maybe) a DIPA.

I prefer mine balanced, although I have had commercial examples that were pretty dry and quite tasty as well.
