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.

General Homebrew Discussion / Imported German Beers and haze
« on: May 03, 2014, 11:51:10 AM »
....specifically chill haze. Especially doppelbocks. Anyone ever notice this? Specifically drinking a 6 pack of Paulener Salvator this afternoon while cleaning house and every single one has opaque chill haze. And this has happened a few other times, and come to think of it most of them have been doppelbocks.

Haven't seen this posted in a while but for those of you who don't know about Lee Valley tools they have great prices on cases of stangs (kolsch glasses). I'm about to order me another case and figured I'd share. You're welcome. ;),104,53200&ap=1

Commercial Beer Reviews / My last negra modello
« on: March 19, 2014, 03:46:56 PM »
I swear they are adding some back sweetening to this beer now. Used to be my "go to" beer at Mexican restaurants. Can't even finish one now. What the hell?

Who all is going? I thought Sean and Tom said they were. Leos? I'll be flying in the 8th and flying out the 12th. Love to have a beer or three with anyone who will be around that week!

Ingredients / D2 candi syrup and head retention
« on: February 26, 2014, 08:15:27 PM »
Any one else notice the beer they brew with D2 candi have terrible head retention? This is n't a problem with regular cane sugar for me. But the ones with the dark candi (and especially the D2) all lose their heads quickly. You can sit there and watch a big head billow up and then just fizz away.

These are the only beers I have head retention troubles with. And it really pisses me off because the flavor is spot on.

Which is better? Vodka soak or nibs in secondary? 4 oz enough per 5 gallon?
