Going Pro / Yellowhammer Article
« on: July 23, 2014, 12:24:42 PM »
Sorry about the over abundance of self promotion this week. But I thought this was a good article and it shows some of the big changes we are currently in the process of making. Plus you get to see how gosh darn handsome I am.  :D

Got one of my beers featured in All About Beer magazine and tasted by Stephen Beaumont!

The Pub / Wireless router suggestion
« on: July 12, 2014, 06:33:08 AM »
Fist off, I have crappy satellite internet (the pice I pay for not having neighbors and walking nekkid to the hot tub on my backdeck. You are welcome for the visual.) I don't know if this is part of the problem but my iPads and iPhones work fine with my current router but my PCs keep getting kicked off.

I need a router that works better. The one I have now is TP-Link. The router I had before had conflict issues as well, with everything. This one still works well on my iPad which is what I primarily use but something that wouldn't conflict with my PCs would be better.

Hey, it could have been worse. At least it wasn't cow semen.

Going Pro / TTB formula approval greatly simplified

As of yesterday TTB has greatly loosened it's formula approval regulations. Fruits, spices and even bbls holding wine or liquor in previous use are no longer required to be approved.

This is an odd hop indeed. I guess it is supposed to be similar to simco. I'm not sure I think it is very much line simco at all but not sure what it is like.There is some pine but it is overwhelmed by an aroma I want to call "damp basement". Not really "dank", but "damp".

There is also some fruitiness here that I can't really describe. A faint melon or maybe it is kiwi.

Flavor is melon or kiwi. Very smooth bitterness. But not a very enjoyable aroma hop, at least not for me.

Ingredients / Bravo, El Dorado

Making a single hop beer today. Anyone have experience with these hops? Bravo seems like bittering hop.

General Homebrew Discussion / Mango floaties in corny keg
« on: May 20, 2014, 08:31:01 AM »
So, a few weeks back I made a Citra/Mango pale ale. In a long story of confusion that I won't delve into, the beer was racked prematurely before the mango had settled. So the corny kegs have bits of mango in every pour.

Not sure I can get a sure-screen on the dip tube now that the beer is in keg. Beer is fully carbonated. I've tried to let it settle (settled almost a month now) but I can't get it to run chunk free.

Does anyone have a solution I have not thought of?

The Pub / Help name some barrels
« on: May 16, 2014, 05:19:46 AM »
I have four cabernet bbls I am trying to name. The barrels hold a beer I brew once a year called "Frankenhammer" that I brew to be released around Halloween. This batch in Cabernet lbs I plan on releasing on draft only. Some have sour cultures, others have Brett and some blended. One I am planning being a solera. I am going to blend some of the bbls together and age on sour cherries and call it "Bride of Frankenhammer"... fun, right?

Anyway, I like the name my bbls. Last time I names them Greek goddess names (Helena, Aphrodite, Athena, Persephone). This time I am looking for names from monster or horror movies. But I am not familiar with the genera. "Carrie" is one I came up with. "Carmilla" is one I found, apparently some classic female vampire.

Or maybe some other theme? I'm not sure. If anyone has some names they can pop around I would appreciate it. If they are really good I might even send out a few bottles.
