Commercial Beer Reviews / Unibroue la Terrible

Unibroue makes some awesome beers. Their tripel (La Fin Du Monde) is one of the best commercially made tripels out there IMO.

Shouldn't be the router since I am surfing now on my iPad on the same router. That said, I have restarted the router several times today.

Have you tried to connect to different WiFi than your one at home?

You may also try deleting your saved Wifi info for your network and reconnecting.  Sometimes your saved network info can get corrupted, causing connection failures.  You can do this by:

Start button/ Control Panel/ Network and Internet/ Network and Sharing Center
On the left, click "Manage Wireless Networks"
Right click your home network and select "Remove Network"
Then try to reconnect to your wirless network and re-enter your password.

Also, if you can plug your laptop into your router via the LAN connection and get internet connection, I could remotely connect to your system if you like and troubleshoot your system for you.

No, I have not. I will take it into work tomorrow and try it. I will also try deleting my saved Wifi network. Thanks for the suggestion!

General Homebrew Discussion / Hop Pellets
« on: January 02, 2013, 04:28:33 PM »
Hey, to each his own. But there is really no need to use a bag for pellets, unless you use a plate chiller. Then maybe.

There's no trick to Whirlpooling, either. Ya stir. It's pretty simple! ;) I use pellets, WP and leave most of the hops and trub behind in the kettle when I brew. I do have a diverter plate installed in my B3 14 gallon kettle though.AA

Keith - are you still able to get a good cone with the heat element in there?  Since I moved to electric, I tried to get a good WP going last time and couldn't - I was wondering if the element was causing the problem.

I don't use any electric kettles now. On my 14 gallon system it is direct fire. I did use elements in the old 55 gallon brew rig and it did cause a problem with forming a cone. But I had a diverter plate so I still was able to keep most of the junk out. Same on the 15 bbl rig - it has a heat element fired by gas and the cone is kinda sketchy but I stiill leave most of the gunk behind due to diverter plate.

I personally think there is way more fretting about keeping hops out of the run off than is necessary. I wouldn't want to dump it all in but some wont hurt a bit. I run perfectly  clean for about 98% of the run off and stop when it starts to get murky.

Thanks for the suggestions.

It's widows PoS 7. There are all kinds of problems, suddenly. I got it at Costco about 6 months ago. Probably just back up everything I have and take this PoS back. Nothing but problems since day one. Gotta go back to Mac as soon as I can afford it. I don't know how you PC guys do it.

I wish it was that dang simple, but I turned it off and on a few times and it is still not working. As a matter of fact nothing seems to be working. I can't even run a system restore now!!! I hate Windows!!!!

We started off super small but the intention was always to grow. even so, it would have been smarter for us to start off on a 7 bbl system, in hind sight. Learned a lot about what not to do when you open a brewery, that's for sure. ;)

Have had nothing but problems with the HP laptop since I got it. Not the wifi suddenly is not working. Looked at troule shooting guide, followed all steps. Nothing.

I'm a Mac guy so I can usually solve issues on macs no problem but I'm not sure if I am missing something here or what. Any suggestions?

Ingredients / midnight wheat yield

Yeah, it's mostly just a color malt. I can't see that you would add so much that it would matter one way or the other.

For hop pellets there is no reason not to put the directly in the kettle. No bag or gadgets needed!!!

Yeah, talking about a tap room or a pub I think you can make it work on a much smaller system. I don't have experience with that yet (though we plan on opening a new facility in 12-18 months and it will definitely have a tasting room - and hopefully a biergarten :) ). But from a pure production standpoint with low overhead I have seen profit making possibilities at the 10-15 bbl capacity level., At the 30 bbl level we could make some decent money. Problem is we start running out of space and next step up means larger overhead. But the tap room should take care of that.
