General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Dry hops, pull em or them em?
« on: March 01, 2010, 05:16:01 AM »
A keg lasts me 2 months on average and the hops stay in the whole time.

+1  For C hops, I usually pull Hallertau or other nobles after a couple of weeks though.  I've noticed they have a tendancy to get grassy after a while for some reason.

You might want to have a few bottles of Duvel available. 

I'm pretty sure it means "lawyer" in Dutch. 


Ha!  I like it! :D

I guess it's not necessarily limited to the internet, but advancement in technology like computers, video game systems and such.

It's a seeking out of stimulation. Kids' brains *need* to be challenged in order to develop properly; it's hard-wired. And no game of stickball can match the stimulation provided by an XBox.

OK, so some of it's laziness.

They could always exercise their brain by using their imaginations and creating instead of having it jammed into their senses through visual and sonic bombardment.  But that's just my opinion.

I think killer whale pretty much says it all.

Ha!  That happened to us when my daughter was a youngster.  I think at one point we had eight of them.  They were pretty easy to give away though.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP002 Attenuation
« on: February 24, 2010, 01:00:26 PM »
Brian, WLP002 flocs out way faster than WLP001, so I doubt that your results were due to dextrins alone.  I also think that 001 will ferment more types of sugar more readily than 002, at least that has been my experience.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: First lager attempt

I would still put it in a swamp cooler.  You can then ice it down if it starts to get too warm.

This


+1 or 2

I read Ken's treatise on lagers and I agree.  I do mine pretty much the same way and have very good results as well.  Controlling fermentation temps in a swamp cooler is not all that difficult to do and I can maintain the temps within two degrees over a twelve hour period using this method.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How long to age an Imperial IPA?
« on: February 24, 2010, 10:34:41 AM »
I like my IIPAs young as well.  I've found that after a couple of months the twang kind of fades away.  Although the flavor hangs in for quite a while.

Dortmunder Export and All Centennial IPA moving to kegs for aging.  Nothing brewing until next week.  May do some bottling this weekend to free up space in the serving fridge.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP002 Attenuation
« on: February 23, 2010, 02:09:41 PM »
Your mash temp was pretty high for the style you were brewing.  If you had used EKGs, it looks like you would have had a pretty good bitter.  I have found that WLP002 does attenuate more in the mid 70s than the high 60s as advertised.  I think I would have gone with the 001 or S-05 in the first place for that style.  That being said, mash temps will have a pretty big influence on attenuation.

All Things Food / Re: The Sandwich Thread.

Schlotzky's used to have good sandwiches thirty years ago, but they've gotten big and I haven't eaten one since 1982.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Astringency and esters.

Diacetyl is both an aroma and a flavor and can be detected in the mouthfeel at times.

You are correct.  At low levels it is mouthfeel at higher levels (like in margerine or popcorn) it is flavor and aroma.  I've never had my beers taste like butter, but I have had the slipperiness or slickness.
