Ingredients / Zythos and Bitterless Black wheat malt
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:59:29 AM »
Just got a 4 oz sample from Hop Union. "10.9% aa 5.2% beta. Typical beer styles, IPA, Pale Ale"

Anyone try or heard of these hops yet?

Also got a sample of "Midnight Wheat" Bitterless Black Malt 550 L "no bitter, astringent dry flavors or aftertaste, slightly sweet, hints of roasted flavor" and Blackprinz Malt 500 L "mild roasted malty flavor". Both samples from Briess.

Anyone try those? Briess says they are seasonal malts that where introduced last year that are being rolled into full production by request.

Shipping our Saison de Noel today. It's a little under carbbed so I am having to pull a quarter pint out of each one and force carbonate. I can't drink all this beer by myself. But darnit I'm gonna give it a shot.

This topic has been moved to Equipment and Software.

Mod's note: You'll probably get more hits on this in the equipment section.

Restructured meat product??? Whatsit????  :o

What's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

Some of you may know that I live so far out in the sticks that I have not had access to high speed internet for 7 years or so. Welp, I finally got rid of dial up and got satellite internet through Hughes Net. Not as fast as the cable modem at work but soooo much better than dial up. And I also have WiFi through out the entire house now, which means I can surf the forum on my iPod. Woot!

Side note: I actually downloaded the Avenger's Trailer yesterday (20 megs). Still took about 10 minutes or so but I could never do that on DU.

Ingredients / Weirdest thing: Sulfur Removal tip
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:51:59 PM »
I have a beer that I racked too early and it was just full of sulfur. Smelled absolutely fetid. I looked up some solutions and found a tip on a wine making forum that suggested pouring a small glass and stirring the wine with copper. And that if it works to try racking the wine through copper tubing.

Tried the stirring thing and side by side the difference is simply friggin' amazing! The beer stirred with copper tastes and smells exactly as it should. The other smells a little like ass.

I'm blown away, had never heard of this technique. The beer stirred with copper is delicious and completely drinkable, the other I couldn't finish an entire glass. Has anyone else heard of this?
