They should call it "RateImperialStout" instead of "RateBeer"
It is a nice list though.

Man. You really nailed that! Seems like RIS is all a lot of these "beer snobs" care about.

And Nate, I didn't mean to take anything away from your friend. While I haven't had his beers there are a lot of great and deserving breweries in the list that should be in the top 5 or 10 that aren't.

All Grain Brewing / Re: how to darken up my Bohemian Pils
« on: January 28, 2012, 06:15:25 PM »
I like a little (maybe 4-6 oz for a 5 gallon batch) Caramunich in my BoPils. I do it for flavor, but it contributes nicely to the color as well.

Cara munich ....? In a Bo Pils?????

I'd add a pound or two of munich. I do that when I want to darken up my kolsch.

Not that I don't think all three are "solid" breweries but Bells, Founders and Cigar City in the top 5 or 6??? they are good breweries but i can't see them ranking that high, personally.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Maris Otter

I tried the PR because I read it was a good idea with this grain.

You know, I did a PR for my very first all-grain attempt because I had read some nonsense that convinced me I "had" to... I concluded later on that certain of the many forums on the internet (especially HBT) offer more bad advice than good, and that's when I started paying attention to who was giving the advice over at the NB forum, and then eventually I came to this forum where, though the posts are fewer, the advice is a lot more consistently worth minding.

I used to frequent NB forum. Got tired of having to disagree with people all the time.  ;)

I thought it was stupid to move the probowl before the super bowl as well, but then I started thinking I might actually watch it this year. I never gave a damn about it before. Still don't really give a damn but I may turn it on just for sh!ts and giggles.

The only draw back I could see about using that tank as a MT is you would probably be slightly limited on the size of your mash. But my guess is you could easily pull off a 1.080 beer but you may need some sugar additions or DME to get much higher than that. I personally only rarely care to drink or brew a beer much higher than 1.080. On the current system I am running (about to become my pilot system) I have had to use DME a couple of times to reach 1.090. I didn't really consider it a problem.
I think you could easily pull off a much stronger beer, just at a much lower final volume ;D

Good point. That is what a lot of commercial breweries do.

I have the same feelings about the Dolphins as you have against the Pats...just hasn't seemed worth the effort in the past few years.  ;D

I can't believe I have to wait 9 more days!!!   >:(

I seem to remember the wildcat giving you guys some problems!  ;)

I just always liked the Dolphins and put them as my #2 favorite team. I only root against them when they play the Titans. ;) Until the Titans came to Nashville (which is about 2 hours away) they used to broadcast Miami every Sunday. But even when I lived in PA I had a special affinity for the 'fins. Not really sure why, perhaps just the color or their uniforms.  ::)

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Beer Flavor-Hops?
« on: January 27, 2012, 05:34:13 AM »
Once I got a very weird off flavor from dry hopping with some home grown hops. Such an odd flavor that I decided not to use the rest of the hops and dumped the beer.

That said, "sour" sounds like an infection to me. Hops have a myriad of flavors, sour is not one of them. Unless it is possible you are misstating the off flavor.

As a long time dolphins fan I've never found a lack of motivation to root against the pats. Should be a good game regardless. Plus I get to eat chili and drink beer all day.  :)

You may have problems with the building inspector or the health inspector with that much steam in the building. Just depends on your local regulations and how strict your inspectors are.

I have my doubts as to you being able to get the jacket on that tank to pass code for a steam jacket, unless it was used by one before. I'm sure you know how dangerous a broken seam on a steam jacketed tank could be.
