Yep. At least the ones that weren't full of Skoal drippins. Blech.

So you didn't hike them all out... shame on you!

The Duvel Single is a different beer. Like a "Duvel Light". I've only ever had it on draft but it's really tasty and easy drinking.

I'd go ahead and pitch a vial now. Most likely you underpitched by only pitching one vial anyway, unless the OG was very low (under 1.045) and the yeast was extremely fresh.

I don't think I said "all hunters throw beer cans." Just said I hate the ones who do. What do you hunters do to curb that problem? If you are not part of the solution .... :)

Alright. I've had my little bit of yearly half drunken fun busting hunter's chops. Makes me feel better and cuss less. Thanks for listening. I'll back out of your thread now.

I can remember my uncle dragging a deer a mile or more in the snow in PA to his truck. Never saw a mule. ;)

Maybe my definition of "wilderness" is wrong but it is thousands of acres literally stretching mostly unmarred about 110 miles to Tennessee. And it is mostly privately owned. There is a huge swath of land owned by the folks who own Jack Daniels about a half mile behind my house. The amount of wildlife is incredible. Pretty awesome place, for sure.

I don't see how I am part of the problem. Enlighten me how I kick people out of hunting on their private land. I would like to become a solution for that!

Seriously, ya'll go and enjoy your hunting. Just don't throw you beer cans all over the place and, for heaven's sake, what did you guys do before the four wheeler was invented???

yeah, that seems a little steep for sure. I looked for 750 ml today and couldn't find them. Can't recall the price of the 4 pack but it's a splurge. I have more Yellowhammer beer on hand then I can drink, but I do get tired of drinking my beer all the time.

Have you tried the single? I love that beer. Wish I could find it in bottles.

Ooops. Just found my second glass is empty. Might need to save the other two for football tomorrow.

Bitter? Yeah, I f'ing hate hunting season. ;)

Used to hunt, I don't find sitting in a tree stand freezing my ass off very enjoyable, personally. Have a lot of friends who do it.*

Oh, and it truly is wilderness and I don't know where you are from but there aren't those kind of laws in Alabama.

* I should probably point out, I only really hate the hunters that throw their beer cans all over the place. The other ones I just mildly disrespect. ;)

Yeah, 50 degrees is probably going to be too cold for that yeast. Lager yeast do well at that temp though, but even so you need a lot of yeast - perhaps 4-6 vials/packs or a couple packs of dry lager yeast.

I recommend warming the beer up to the mid to low 60s, but don't let it get too warm. Fermentation temps much over 70 degrees can generate some unwanted flavors. And remember that fermentation is exothermic so your fermentation temp could be 6-8 degrees over ambient.

As long as your sanitation was good the beer should be fine, especially at 50 degrees.

Also, you may way to pitch more yeast, especially if you used liquid yeast and only pitched one pack/vial. If you are new to brewing I would recommend starting out with dry yeast until you get the hang of making yeast starters or pitch multiple packs/vials.

Good luck on your beer!

I live on 7 acres of mountain land that is surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness which encompasses a hunting club. Damn hunters rumbling their pick up trucks and running their damned four wheelers all over my mountain and throwing their bud light beer cans all over the mountain and ruining perfectly good hiking weather. I f'ing HATE hunting season.

I do let my neighbor tag me a doe for my freezer every year. But it's not worth the three months of hunting season by any stretch of the imagination.

Personally, I think we should make hunting season July and August and let the damn hunters deal with ticks and chiggers and mosquitos and rattlesnakes rather than giving them the best time of the year to go out in the woods just to sit in a damned tree stand.

About once every 2 or three weeks I stop and get a 4 pack of Duvel. Just love that beer. Easy drinking, lemon like refreshing hop character, dry enough to make it a thirst quencher even at 8.5% ABV and a rocky head unparalleled by just about any other beer. It's become my answer to "pilsner drinking" in some ways.

Really wish we could get the Duvel single in bottles, I really love that beer as well and order it on draft at my local.

Just thought I sing the praises of a well done and often under appreciated beer.
