As A Thinking Individual, I Couldn't Possibly Care Less.

I'm almost ashamed to say how pleased I am to see this phrased correctly.  Too many people say they "could care less..."


LOL. I thought the same thing. I just remember the old standard sung by Frank Sinatra.

As for the neck, I think that he would know his body well enough to know whether or not it was worth 69 million or not. After all, it is his neck.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: A simple, Kosher alternative to gelatin

Biofine Clear A3 is kosher, vegan, and not plastic (so it depends on how you feel about silica). Bonus points: it works really well. It may not be available in anything smaller than 1 L though. B3 has Biofine listed but doesn't say whether or not it's the A3 version: http://morebeer.com/view_product/11772//Biofine_Clear_Clarifier_-_1oz

+1 - the Biofine Clear A3 works great

Back to the original point at hand, there's no way the small amount of steeping grains are going to give you ten extra points brix. And if you didn't mash the oats it is likely that they would not have given you nearly as many points had you actually mashed them. YOu wort was most likely stratified. And I recommend mashing the oats with a pound of pilsner next time. Really, IMO you are going to make better beer by doing a mini mash with all of your extract batches. For one thing extract is reported to be low in FAN. And you just get a bit more control and it's freakin' easy.

I wonder what will happen to Tebow now. Be kinda interesting if they could keep him on, but I doubt it will happen.

As a Titan's fan I was pretty damn disappointed.  >:(

Starches aside, the real point of the mater is that 1 lb total of steeping grains is not going to give you 15 more points brix in an extract beer. Your reading is off. Possibly due to stratification or, as was mentioned, your hydrometer is off. Or you didn't add enough malt extract. But it has nothing to do with the steeping grains.

Hard to call, but it would have been best to pull off when done and at least refrigerate it.

August 2009! I bought an EPA kit and made my first batch on our old electric stove in a split batch. Still the best beer I've ever made!

I'm sure glad I can't say that!  :o My first batch was so bad I could hardly give it away.

January 1995 a week or so after Christmas (my first kit was a Christmas gift from my mom). A can of John Bull liquid extract, a few pounds of sugar and the yeast packet under the can. It turned out awful but I was hooked.  8)

Keith,

Today is the day when you can look at anything that challenges you and say: "f##k you, I'm Irish!" :)

Thanks, i adopted that attitude and it served me well. Miraculously I do not have a hangover this morning. Guess it's that Irish blood in me. :D

I was just being a smart aleck (drinking all day brings that out in me) - I agree with you 100% and that is the model we follow. In some restaurants we have the most expensive beer on tap. There is a feeling of prestige that goes along with paying a little more. Of course, you also have to have quality to back it up.

Who knows? Maybe if you're really marketing saavy you can turn ultra-low production into a selling point, and command a high price for you beer.

Wow. And here I've been trying to undercut Natty Lite all this time.  ;)
