Guys, I don't know when this hefeweizen is going to get done.  I'm in Miami now and most likely will be next week too.  Way too much going on right now for brewing. :(

hey man - I am going to be judging a beer comp down in Miami this weekend - let me know if you want to meet up.

Crap, I'll be back on the Chesapeake for the weekend, back down on Monday, that would be cool though, damn.

I taste a touch of dark crystal in there as well.

Cap, now that you know Ron, well you can kinda tell he's all about quality (by the numbers).  I work with him, very little is left to chance. ;)

It's a marketing thing, all about perception.

I too keep yeast in sanitized jars for months and months without washing. Haven't had a problem making a starter with 6 month old slurry. Even pitched a jar of one month slurry without a starter and it made a great beer.

Yep, my experience as well.

What are we gonna start a bagel thread next, oy! ;)  Vital Wheat Gluten increases the protein and elasticity in the dough, but I've found that the right combination of kneading and rising break down the glutens in flour well enough to give the correct amount elasticity to the dough for great pizza. Just sayin' ;)  Myabe I'm just too old school. ;D

I entered a blond ale in the NHC and got two opposing comments from two different judges.  One was "too hoppy" and the other was not enough hops.  I asssme it was balance they were talking about, since the style is not inherently hoppy.  It did pretty well, but shows that results can be confusing to the brewer.

I sent emails to my state delegate and senator.  This is serious business here.  We're already taxed pretty heavily here.

I've never had a problem with the last runnings being cloudy...    ???

Me either, and I'm usually stretching the runoff to the point where it's just trickling out to hit my volume.


Same here, and I've even taken to tilting my cooler to make sure I get it all out.

Me too, must be the braid. ;)

I was going to do a hefeweizen and try out my new chiller,

What kind of chiller did you get?

I'm brewing a CAP, kegging an APA, and drinking oatmeal stout.   

I got a Shirron plate chiller.  The fittings are on and it's ready to go.

If it is really old it may not have a back up relief valve. Be careful. The old ones only have the rattle thing and if it clogs. Klah-bloy.

Pressure cookers are truly amazing. A very underrated kitchen tool. I could never live without my pressure cooker.

On the No Reservations Saudi Arabia episode they cook a whole camel in a giant pressure cooker.

Cap, it does not have a secondary relief valve only the rattle thing on top.  Must be careful not to make split pea soup in it. ;)

I must admit I've fired it up a few times over the winter but the snow has been a deterrent. Bring Spring!  ;)

I've used the grill on a regular basis, but I usually smoke in the yard and dragging it out there in 3 foot of snow ain't happenin'.

I was going to do a hefeweizen and try out my new chiller, but instead I'm installing hardwood floors. :( That being said, if I finish the floor early enough, I may sneak a brewday in anyway. ;D
