i am a well known citra hater. ;) Actually, it can be pleasant when used with a light hand. But I have a pound in my freezer that has been there unopened all year and I just can bring myself to using it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Looking Forward to Fall
« on: July 27, 2012, 12:52:13 PM »
Tell me about it. I work in an unairconditioned warehouse boiling 7-10 bbls and have to unload a hot mash tun by hand. Temps have rearely been below 90 and have often been over 95 and a full week over 100. We are having serious issues with our glycol system overloading. We have a sprinkler on the roof and a mister inside which helps a lot, but still hot as hell. I hate to wish my life away but I can't wait until fall.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Your Top 4 Hefeweizens?
« on: July 27, 2012, 06:33:21 AM »
The commercial beer selection in Missouri is really bad outside of St. Louis and KC. Like, really awful. Sam Adams awful.

LOL. Sorry, man. That was a smart ass thing for me to say. We were in the same boat here for a long time. Now we get just about everything. That said, I have always travelled a lot so I have had the chance to try many beers.

A lot of time the imported German hefeweizen are far from fresh. I believe franziskaner in particular is pasteurized, and one of my least favorite. Schneider is one that is very good when fresh. Erdinger on draft is very good when fresh.

Not mentioned on the list above: Troeggs Dream Weaver HefeWezien is one of the best domestic weissbiers you will find. It rivals some of the best German hefeweizens IMO.

Yeast and Fermentation / Is My Wheat Ale Stuck?
« on: July 26, 2012, 11:02:26 AM »
If it is really 1.050 then it is ok to aerate again, to, when you pitch and rouse. I'd definitely suggest pitching at least two vials/packs of yeast.

How many times did you step up the starter? You are going to need a lot of yeast for a 1.070 beer.

Cool. Guess I don't remember that from his book. Not the way I have commonly seen it referenced.

There's no way it could be done or your hydrometer reading is off. What temp are you fermenting at? Can you post a recipe? Yeast?

Not saying this is your case, but I have read a few times where people took gravity readings and the bottom of the hydrometer was sitting on the bottom of the flask and the hydrometer itself was not floating. Not sayin', just checkin'.

Not sure what sp gr is, and I have been brewing for 17 years!

What was your SG (starting gravity)? If you started at 1.050 and you had active fermentation and no the hydro reads 1.050 you are doing something wrong. That would be technically impossible. What temp were you fermenting? What yeast did you use? Can you give us a recipe?

As mentioned above, fermented. Not a big fan of fridge pickles. I like 'em fermented.

How sanitary are their lines? There could be all sorts of stuff growing in the lines that gives you the headache. Two of the worst "hangovers" I have ever had came after drinking just one pint, of a beer that I have had before at other venues. I can think only that the beer lines were improperly cleaned.

very good point!

ibuprofen is less toxic to the liver than acetomenophen (or however you spell it). I think as long as you don't take it every night and as long as you drink moderately mostly you will be perfectly fine, even if you get sloppy drunk every once in a while and take it.

And I am a doctor ... of love, baby.
