The Pub / Greeting from the Gulf!
« on: October 12, 2012, 11:48:37 AM »
I'm actually ready to get back. I like the beach a lot but I would not want to live here. I have a home on 7 acres of mountain land dropped in the middle of a fairly remote forest that I enjoy very much and a business that I am looking forward to get back too.

Not saying I wouldn't mind owning a beach house, but a week is enough for me.

Beer Recipes / How much Munich 1 in a bock?
« on: October 12, 2012, 06:57:31 AM »
some of my best bock recipes use a blend of Munich I and Munich II for the majority of the grist (if not the entirety). I usually add at least 10-20% pils for the enzymes. I also like a touch of cara munich as well.

Week always goes too damn fast. Last day on the beach. Oh well, down to my last two IPAs and just ran out of coffee.

It's gonna get better now that I finally got a contract for Amarillo! I'll definitely send you some Denny since I owe you for hooking me up with Ted as my hop source! :)
Thats where all puterbaugh farms amarillo stock went huh?

I highly doubt it. I'm only getting 100 lbs or so. Probably all used for strictly dry hopping.

The Pub / Trained by a Guinea Pig
« on: October 10, 2012, 05:34:51 AM »
About three years ago I got my son a guinea pig for Christmas. He named it Henry. I was surprised at how fat Henry got so Quickly, then one morning about 2 or 3 weeks later my son came busting in the door yelling "Henry had babies". It was a three for one special, apparently, and we changed Henry's name to Henrietta.

Are you selling your brew in the bottle now?

Yep. IPA is now available in 22 oz bottles. Other specialty beers to come soon.

I'd settle for a Hoptimum right now, too. ;)

There is fixin' to be a local brewery around here that I am planning to go visit, but it will be the first one and they will be draft only to start. Otherwise, the best beer you are getting at the package store is Negro Modelo.

I also brought a keg of my Belgian White and a homebrew I made spiced with ginger, honey and lemon peel in a corny keg.

Going Pro / MonsterMash
« on: October 08, 2012, 02:19:26 PM »
I unload the mash by hand (it really sucks in the high heat of summer) but it doesn't take too long. A farmer comes and picks up our grain so it never sits around longer than 24 hours. That particular batch was a 1.070 IPA. I have brewed 10 bbl batches of 1.090 beer that fit nicely in my MT but at 15 bbls that was definitely the limit of our MT (actually, it was 14 bbls - I was filling both our 7 bbl fermenters at once.)

We have an agitator but it spins too fast (need to get it slowed down) so I dough in by hand with a canoe paddle.

Not to be outdone, this was my biggest mash to date  - 800 lbs.

I've had grain stay fresh for two years rolled up in sack and stored in loosely sealed containers. I'd look elsewhere for your flavor problems.

General Homebrew Discussion / Cellaring Beer

There is some debate on the topic. There's a good article on "Beer Advocate" about cellaring beer. Unfortunately it looks like the page won't load anymore.
