Ingredients / FRESH MILLED GRAIN
« on: January 09, 2013, 09:58:17 AM »
I disagree that it is a big problem. I think that as long as it is stored cool and sealed it can last for a couple months crushed with minimal loss of flavor. Probably even longer.

Yeah, that sucks. He is a fun player to watch. But it looks like the game has gotten too rough to have running QBs anymore. You need to sit in the pocket and throw darts to have any type of longevity. That said, I think he could be a pocket QB.

I thought it was going to be a "slug fest" like all the "analysts" predicted.

Wow, what a great (yawn) game last night. Notre Dame really showed us what all the legend was about .... I was asleep by the third quarter.....

All Grain Brewing / What exactly is...

Definitely looks like an infection to me. Ring around the inside of a bottle is a tell tale sign.

General Homebrew Discussion / Lagering Question
« on: January 06, 2013, 02:50:55 PM »
I like to "lager" mine for a few (2-4) weeks at 32-28 degrees. Helps clear the beer, mellow out the alcohol character. You can do it in the bottle or in a bright tank/secondary. One thing I would recommend is to purge any secondary/bright tank with Co2 before racking. Or at least purge the head space.

Yeast and Fermentation / Secondary Fermention
« on: January 06, 2013, 08:21:18 AM »
All bubbles in the airlock mean is that Co2 is coming out of solution, which is not necessarily an indication of fermentation. Rely on your hydrometer reading. When you get a constant reading separated by 3 or more days and a reasonable attenuation for that strain of yeast you are done!

All Grain Brewing / Base malt recommendation for Belgian brews
« on: January 04, 2013, 03:02:24 PM »
So my new grain mill is en route, and now I obviously need to buy a sack of grain to go with it :)

I plan on brewing a lot of Belgian styles this year, so I was thinking of getting a sack of Castle Pils. Anyone have any differing suggestions?

Castle is good.  I've tried it, MFB, Weyermann, Durst, and Best (maybe another one or 2).  For my tastes, best beat everything else.

Best is what I use for everything - even my IPA!

Belgian or German pils malt is what I recommend. Rahr pils is good too.

I haven't had a chance to look at it today. First full day back to work in a week and had one hell of a day. Broken forklifts suck.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Unibroue la Terrible
« on: January 03, 2013, 05:59:12 AM »
Unibroue makes some awesome beers. Their tripel (La Fin Du Monde) is one of the best commercially made tripels out there IMO.
