I'm surprised Carl, I thought you watched a lot of football. 

I figured out he didn't watch football the moment he started bragging on how great a QB tebow is.  8)

Remember these are ten gallon and are being used as fermenters.

Ooops, yeah. Lost track of that.

Pitching at 60 degrees is the exact thing you should be doing - assuming you are pitching enough yeast. Pitching anywhere above 70/72 degrees actually can cause fermentation off flavors and potential head retention problems.

As far as the thermo weights, I wouldn't worry about that much. I recommend getting a stick on "fermomenter" so that you can get a reading of the temp inside the fermenter without having to open the lid/pop the bumg. They are surprisingly accurate.

I would just bend them a bit if you are really worried about it.  Much easier to bend it back than to try to reattach what you cut off.


I've done this and it works. Also you can replace dip tubes fairly cheaply. But, in regardlas to how much to cut, 2" is way too much. No more than an inch. Half inch is probably plenty.

I'm in no way saying your friend is wrong, but that is totally contrary to what other people have told me.

 :D I honestly never heard that before! That's clever. So I know you didn;t come up with it!  :P

My optimism from earlier in the season is now completely shattered. That was also one of the worst 2 minute drills I ever witnessed.

Also, I may never have mentioned this but the dolphins are a close second favorite team all the way from childhood. So you and I have at least something in common besides our love of craft beer and McRib sandwiches.

Speaking to a local contract brewery recently, the guy out right told me there is no way to make money contract brewing. The actual brewer is the one who makes the profit. They ended up securing finances and are now in the process of building a brewery.

I'll add, brewing is a craft and as a brewer I take pride in my own craftmanship. All contract brewers have is a recipe and the rest is all marketing. That's not brewing. It becomes more about selling t-shirts than about brewing.

Ingredients / Re: Are mash hops old fashioned?
« on: November 06, 2011, 07:52:32 AM »
I think it does work, but FWH is a better technique. Back in the day I added lots of mash hops - back in the day when hops were a third of the price they are now. Hops are too expensive to waste on the technique now, IMO.

. I swear, your skin starts to smell like McDonalds after eating there. And it doesn't smell good.

So totally true, and I won't go into details about what happens the next day after that first cup of coffee.

« on: November 05, 2011, 09:10:35 PM »
It was a great game. Lotsa fun. Too bad about the loss but Alabama really should have won that game. 3 missed field goals and a really stupid goal line interception that really shouldn't have been an interception cost them the game. IMO Alabama should remain #2. OTOH LSU definitely has the better special teams team.

Great game! Congrats to LSU!

I wonder if I'm the only one on the forum that both lives in Alabama and has a spouse that is an Alumna.

Anyway, I'm drinking IPA now. We are going to a neighbors house to watch the game around a bonfire and I am bringing a growler of Yellowhammer Saison de la Chasse, then will probably be drinking my IPA again when that's kicked.

Oh, and the obligatory "Roll Tide" inserted here. :D

four oz per bbl may be more accurate than hyperbole. I just brewed a belgian dubbel today. Less than 3 oz per bbl to reach 17 BUs.
