I have a lot of family from outside of Pittsburgh. I didn't get a very positive reaction when I referred to him as Ben "Rapistburger". ::)

The Pub / Re: What beer opened your eyes?

Paulaner Salvator changed my life.
21 years old, standing in front of the liquor store cooler...
Pondering what to buy, instead of Icehouse or Miller Lite.
I don't know what made me buy it, but I'm damn glad that I did.


Yeah baby!  Nothing like a German Doppelbock to lift the veil from your eyes!

+1 To Salvator- my first strong beer.

Salvator is far better drinkablility-wise than that syrupy Spaten Optimator. There. I just said it. ;D



Comments like this let me know you drink Bud Light Lime on the sly.

You can get a manway welded in for super cheap. You are gonna need it, if you don't already have it. Check out Glacier Brewing - they have manways for sale (as does GWKent). you could probably even find whom they get theirs from and get a really good price.

Maybe Ben will take Tebow's virginity!

More likely to happen in a backwoods bathroom bar in rural Georgia Alabama than during a Mile High stadium play off game .... but ya never know!  ;)

It's going to be difficult not to root for Denver if Pittsburgh goes to Mile High for their first round playoff game.  :D

Really looking forward to seeing the Saints play Green Bay, assuming that happens.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WL833 tastes sweet

Agree with jeffy.  That strain accentuates the malt. Also your hop bittternesss will directly affect perceived sweetness.

I actually forgot about one book I have that does cover many of the technical aspects of brewing such as those mentioned above. It is geared more for the pro brewer. It's called The Brewer's Handbook by Ted Goldammer. Not sure I highly recommend it but you may find a lot of useful material in it.

If you are looking for a book that teaches you the more technical aspects of pro-brewing, such as heat exchanger sizing, glycol system configuration, CiP procedures, etc, etc, etc. Good luck. I have never found a book that covered such topics. What I have done is relied on Cooling and Heating guys, electricians, chemical guys and engineers to point me in the right direction.

There are a few books that are written more for the pro brewers. New Brewing Lager covers a lot of things such as how to read a malt data sheet, etc.  "Yeast" by CW and JZ is geared more for the pro brewer than the hobbyist IMO. Many of the "style guide series" focus on aspects of pro brewing including showing recipes in bbl sizes as well as homebrew sizes.

All Grain Brewing / Re: toasty flavor
« on: December 24, 2011, 06:49:07 AM »
Brown malt is a good choice. But I highly recommend the pale chocolate as well. This is one of Jamil's "secret" malts for adding depth and toastiness to a beer.

Just a guess: Pale chocolate. That is a malt that gives a nice toasty flavor.
