I used 1450 in a Moose Drool clone, and it was fantastic!

Shoot, I was there two days ago.  I certainly would have stopped in for a pint or three.  My wife has a relative there, I'll stop in when I visit them next time.

This year's Hopslam is not as good as in the past few years.  I'd give it a 8.5/10 in the bottle, 9/10 if on tap.


Running low on homebrew, so I'm doing a double extract batch today.  The Twelfth night stout from NB, and an attempt at a Terminator stout clone.


Beer Travel / Re: Hawaii - one shot only trip

The last time that I visited Oahu, I drank beer from Kona Brewing Company.  I tried the Longboard Lager, Big Wave Golden Ale, Firerock Pale Ale, Lavaman Red, and one of the porters, but I can't remember which one.  All of the beers were very good, but I remember the Lavaman Red being my favorite.

I mostly drank bottles, but my wife and I did visit the brewpub at the Koko Marina in Honolulu as well.

Hope that helps,

American brown ale here, followed closely by IPA.

For me it's always classic rock.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How much did you brew in 2009?

14 times for me.  One batch was 3 gal, and the rest were 5 gal. 


I didn't really get too crazy this year, so my most interesting beer was taking a 5 gallon batch of cream ale, I added some honey and boiled it down to 3 gallons making it into a barleywine (only 1.080).  I have three bottles of this left, so I was thinking of entering it into the UMMO next month.

My favorite beer this year was the Caribou Slobber kit from NB that I fermented with Denny's yeast.  It only lasted two weeks >:(, which is why it will be my first brew of 2010.

I made mine out of maple.

The Pub / Re: What do you like besides homebrew

In no particular order
- travel
- camping/backpacking
- cooking
- golf
- disc golf

Just finished cleaning up.  I used the recipe that is on the wiki site and got 77% eff. (1.037).  I'm naming this beer Wraith's Ace in honor of just discovering a new hobby, disc golf over the long Thanksgiving weekend.

I wasn't planning on using it, just curious.

General Homebrew Discussion / Is malt powder fermentable?
« on: December 01, 2009, 08:29:32 AM »
I'm talking about this;

Ingredients are: wheat flour and barley extracts, milk, soy lecithin, salt, and sodium bicarbonate.

Maybe it would work in a milk stout?

I haven't brewed a mild in awhile.  So, it'll have to be the SS Minnow Mild from one of the recent Big Brew days.
