Going Pro / Re: "The Grand Timeline"
« on: March 09, 2012, 03:54:58 PM »
I don't mean to sound dickish - so please don't take this the wrong way. But if you still haven't learned to brew all grain yet I feel the compulsion to dissuade you from even considering opening a brewery. There is so much to learn to make a good beer on a large scale and even though extract brewing is a feasible approach it is way more expensive to pull off. Give it a few years before you start making any serious plans. There are way too many breweries starting up now that the dream of opening a brewery is in front of actually learning the brewing process, and in todays tight market that is a sure sign of failure.

Cold brewed coffee is delicious.  I get the fair trade kind called "Bike Fuel", it's a nice blend of light and dark roast.  Cold brew it for 12-24 hours in a french press, and drink it on ice or dilute it with hot water or milk.  It's pretty tasty and smooth.

It's powerful stuff.

I've had my Keurig going on 2 years now with no real problems, so knock on wood there.

way to go. It'll be dead by monday.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: stuck ferment????
« on: March 09, 2012, 09:26:38 AM »
I personally have never had any luck using any type of enzyme post fermenting. Yeah, it usually works, but it never tastes right to me. YMMV. Even so, I've heard of 1.050 beers stalling at 1.020 before, but 1.030? That would be around 40% aa. Something seriously wrong. Too bad the OP gave up on the thread after the first response. I'd like to know more. Curious.

I used it for instant hot water into my frensh press or aero-press (the latter of which makes a great cup of coffee, better than french press if anyone is interested)

I don't like the taste of the paper filter you get with the aero-press.  I prefer my French press for preparing my homegrown coffee.

Also, water heating chambers build up scale, which add flavors to the water too.

Yeah, you probably drink that crappy Kona coffee. ::)

Three old ladies are sitting on a park bench when a man in a trench coat walks up. He opens the coat to reveal that he is completely nude underneath.

the first old lady has a stroke
the second old lady has a stroke
the third old lady would have had a stroke but her arms were to short to reach.

Two nuns are driving along a country road late at night when suddenly a vampire leaps out in front of them. They screech to a halt and one nun says to the other, "lean out the window and show him your cross".

The second nun rolls down the window leans out and yells "GET OUT OF THE DAMN ROAD!!!!!!"

I literally "LOL"ed on the first one.  ;D

So, sorry folks but please no more political jokes. Many could easily be made about both sides of the isle and I would love to read every one but it's probably not a good place to air political affiliation or opinions. Sorry for the bummer.

I didn't remove it, but OTOH I can understand why it was removed. I don't think it would be a good idea to turn the "joke thread" into an Obama bashing thread. If it makes you feel better I'll remove the other one.

I'm poor. I mean really poor. I'm so poor the other day I was kickin' a can down the road and someone asked me what I was doing and I said "movin'.

I am a coffee snob (not a beer snob necessarily, but definitely a coffee snob) and my parents got me a kuerig a few years ago much to my dismay. I used it for instant hot water into my frensh press or aero-press (the latter of which makes a great cup of coffee, better than french press if anyone is interested) but on occasion I would use the K-cups and I have to admit they really weren't half bad. there was one I particularly liked but I can't recall the name now. Onyx or something.

Regardless, the pump broke and I never replaced it. My parents had great customer service from them on their broken machine though.

Kegging and Bottling / Firkin help
« on: March 08, 2012, 08:41:21 AM »
I have two firkins I need to fill but don't know what to order or really what in the hell to do. Any help would be appreciated. I was looking at the NB website and looks like they have all the accoutrements but not sure what goes where how.

Want to team up, Keith? It looks like there are still rooms available.

Plus I can get you sauced and pry out some trade secrets. ;)

Sure - if there are still rooms available I will gladly split one with you sean. I thought they were all sold out.
