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

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling Under CO2 and Beer Maturation
« on: March 03, 2010, 07:55:56 AM »
Since the bottles are smaller than the keg, the maturation process will be faster and clearing should happen faster as well.  Both are affected by the size of the storage vessel.  You may want to use gelatin to clear the keg before you bottle if you have a couple of days and the keg is already down to lagering or drinking temps.

Tonight I did a 7 hour slow braised brisket in beef stock with cilantro, 1 each dried ancho, guajillo, New Mexico, chipotle peppers and onions. I will shred the meat, reduce the sauce and make some chalupas and refried beans.


Sounds yummy.  I've been eyeing up briskets for the first beef BBQ of the year.  When the weather gets a little better, I'll start using the smoker again.

We have a huge Presto pressure canner that my mom gave to me.  Things probably as old (~ 50) as I am or pretty darn close.

Just like homebrewers to take an art and turn it into a science! ;) ::)

Brewing a reformulated version of my house APA right now!  I'm trying to simplify the recipe a bit.  Is there a better way to spend a Monday?!   8)

Not to my knowledge! ;D

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
