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

Beer Recipes / Secret ingredient in dry stout?
« on: February 07, 2014, 06:23:27 AM »
No doubt some of you already know this but I've been homebrewing a dry(ish) stout and the one malt I find that really makes a nice touch is Best Munich II.

Off top of my head recipe is something like (12 gallons)

8 lbs Thomas Faucett Maris Otter
4 lbs Best Dark Munich II
2 lbs Flaked Barley
2 lbs Roasted Barley
4 oz Kent Goldings @ 60 minutes.

Clean ale yeast (this last one I used WY1007 fermented at around 56 degrees).

I'm playing around with the percentage of dark Munich and may get rid of the MO all together.

Especially good on nitro! Have a pin conditioning right now too that I plan to tap on St. Patties day through beer engine.

The Pub / Careful what you wish for

I have to go to a beer launch today. Obligated is the right word. It starts at noon. (I'm running late.)

But the last thing I feel like doing this afternoon is drinking beer. I know that sounds crazy but it's true.

The Pub / New Year goals?
« on: December 26, 2013, 08:27:44 AM »
I'm a goals oriented person so the new year always presents itself to me as an opportunity to set up coming goals and review past accomplishments.

My brewing goal this year is to get a bottling or canning line in full operation by mid summer at Yellowhammer. We also have a production goal to meet this year that about doubles last years.

My personal goal is to lose 15 lbs and get back into shape again. I also want to spend more time with my family and get back out on the backpacking trail more often.

The day I turned 40 I went out for a 6 mile run and afterward hiked to the top of the mountain behind my house for some thoughtful meditation. I turn 45 this year and want be be in good enough shape to repeat that experience.

Anyone else want to share their goals and resolutions?

All Things Food / Seaside Thanksgiving!
« on: November 24, 2013, 08:11:28 AM »
We rented a house on the beach this year in Fort Morgan (on Gulf) during Thanksgiving. I want to have a special seaside touch for Tday. I'm going to try an oyster dressing HERE but am open to other recipes you may prefer.

What else? We are having cornish hens instead of Turkey. Sweet potatoes are real big on gulf, as well.

Ingredients / What's your favorite American "noble" type hop?
« on: November 24, 2013, 05:47:48 AM »
Northern Brewer? Mount Hood?

I used to really like crystal (and still do for some applications) but it seems to have gotten more citrusy, or maybe I'm getting more sensitive.
