The Pub / Re: The OFFICIAL AHA 4M's NFL BULL SH$%^&TER'S THREAD!

That's too funny. I thought it was  a joke at first but its not. Someone needs to shoot a picture Tebowing at a strip club or with a hooka or something.

Being from Alabama and owning a brewery called "Yellowhammer" we wanted to advertise that our beer was made with "Tebow's tears" after his crying stent losing to Alabama the one year. Didn't though. But shoulda! :D

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: First Lager - Temp Advice
« on: October 28, 2011, 05:10:20 AM »
The only real reason to take the temp down so slow is to keep the yeast working cleaning up the beer. If you do a "forced maturation" or d-rest then the slow cooling toward lagering temps really isn't beneficial. At that point you can just crash cool.

You know they archive this forum indefinetly, yes?

I was wondering the same thing about you? Wanna place a small wager? Ten bucks? Twenty? Hell, I'd go all teh way to a grand but that would be like shooting fish in a barrel. I wouldn't feel right about it.  ;)

Like I said above. Tebow is Vince Young - both were great college quarterbacks but their style of play does not work in today's NFL.
Obviously you guys need to bet beer, not cash. ;)

Meh, I don't want no damn coconut, pineapple, black lava porter whatnot.  :P I actually don't want to actively route against the kid. I hope I'm wrong. I'm not, though.

Since talking about lagering for some reason my fridge with j control won't go below 48 degrees even though it was working just fine last week. Will I be alright if I lager at 48 degrees?

You need to be at 38 degrees at least or the yeast will not drop out (or it will take forever). You won't get the cold conditioning benefits at 48 degrees. Sounds like your compressor in said fridge is dying, probably not the controller. Once it starts to go it will probably go all the way bad in a short time.

Numbers shumbers.  Folks in the NFL study up. 

Yeah, they study the s*** out of Brady, but he still cuts them to pieces.



Surely your not saying Tebow is in the same class of QB as Brady??? Brady is an Elite NFL QB. Tebow will be lucky to ever even see a playoff game.

Probably not at all what you are looking for but I just aged a 10.5% belgian specialty ale on home toasted cherry wood chips and while I didn't get a lot of wood character I was shocked at how much actual cherry aroma and flavor came though. Only the faintest hint of wood.

Going Pro / Re: I just want to be able to sell my beer

Consider this: Our annual ABC license that allows us to sell beer is $1,000. Your local regulations may be different, I dunno, but you are going to really have to work hard to make any kind of profit on a 5-10 gallon system.
Yeah, but WA is a pretty brewery friendly state . . .

RCW 66.24.244
Microbrewery's license — Fee.

(1) There shall be a license for microbreweries; fee to be one hundred dollars for production of less than sixty thousand barrels of malt liquor, including strong beer, per year.

Well, that's just plum reasonable!

My main concern when people start to take homebrew to the masses is still the fact that it is an awful lot of work for such a small return. If you are brewing on a 5 - 10 gal system you will end up brewing more for bars and pubs than for yourself and you still won't be making any money and you will end up working basically for free. The most important part about homebrewing for me was having good, fresh beer on tap all the time - for ME! If you start brewing for local establishments you will not have very much beer around the house. What is worse, you will most likely have to pay to drink your own beer.

Another think to consider: pubs and restaurants start to get pissed when you can't keep up with demand. Especially if you are taking up tap space. If you can;t keep a keg on that tap most places are going to bump you for someone more reliable. An empty tap costs an establishment money.

Not trying to rain on any parades, just trying to point out a few facts folks may not have thought of. Brewing beer is a lot of work, for sure.

Sorry, I should be stoked, I know.  We are on a win streak with the lowly Lions  :-\  coming to town.


That's not going to work long term.

My thoughts exactly.

I saw this picture recently and thought of you.  heh.



That's where Jeff Fisher has been hiding out. Is that a funeral for the Titans?  ::)

Does not have the ability to put the ball down the field?

In 2009  Tebow threw for 2895 yds (203/game avg.)  - 21 TDs with 5 INTs.
Rushing 915 yds for 14 TDs.

In four years as a Gator he threw 9826 yds (179/game) - 88 TDs - 15 INTs
Rushing 2947 yds - 57 TDs

He did that playing in the SEC.

Sure, in college he was a great QB, but he will most likely never be a great Pro QB. I mean, heck! How many great college players never even make it in the pros? How many Heisman Trophy winners are flat out busts? Sorry, but that's not the same thing at all. I'm not saying he won't win a few games here and there but he will never be a super bowl winning QB. You have to be able to put the ball down the field in the pros. Tebow can't do that. Not consistently anyway. Not in the pros.

Tebow is like, the same QB as Vince Young. Poor throwing motion, doesn;t check down receivers, runs the first sign of break down or if his #1 guy is covered. VY won many games that way and I can tell you it was a heart attach to watch him play every time. And VY never made it to the Super Bowl and the best season the Titans had during his years was when he was injured and Carry Collins took over. And where is VY now? He's a back up. No one would be crazy enough to give him the starting position. The one thing Tebow has over VY is his attitude, he is a tremendous human being. But he'll never be a great NFL QB.

You'll see. Like, this weekend.   ;)

I'm sure he'll be good someday, it's just way to early for me.

The only way Tebow will ever even have modest success in this league is if the team he plays for designs the entire offense around his style of play. At this point he doesn't have that. Tebow is a running quarterback and does not have the ability to put the ball down the field. If you want to win in todays NFL you have to have to throw the ball down the field.

Statistically running QBs don't win in this league. Even the QBs that could run like Steve Young and John Elway had GUNS for arms. Tebow doesn't have that. Sure, he won last week but he had to dig them out of a 15 point hole and I think that it is important to point out that it was his play on the field that put them in that 15 point hole to begin with. 55 minutes of pure crap followed by 5 minutes of frantic comeback. That's not going to work long term.

Beer Recipes / Re: Amber Ale: To Dry Hop or Not to Dryhop?
« on: October 27, 2011, 07:09:58 AM »
is it missing the dryhop??


Have you ever had Troeg's Hop Back amber? It's a really nice amber (and I'm not an amber fan usually.) They run their wort through a hop back (hence the name). That would be my recommendation.

I don't know about you guys, but just think of how much you have learned from this forum (and others).  When I started brewing on my stove in the mid-90's, I couldn't just post a question or read a topic and become instantly educated.  I had to find the answer or experiment until I learned it from experience.  We have it so good now and the info is everywhere.

I still remember first trying to make a MT from the directions in the first Joy of Homebrewing book.  Drilling a million 1/8" holes in to the bottom of a plastic fermenter...........I gave up.

Now I'm all over YouTube taking notes on how I'm going to make my RIMS or HERMS (haven't decided yet) system! 

So, +1 to good sanitation, having a good process and being patient.

+1000 to have someone you know to pass on their knowledge........ ;)

Man, I feel exactly what you are saying. Especially building the papzap mash tun. OTOH that thing worked for many, many great batches.

I don't think you will find many people who will say any of JZ's recipes suck. I like to build mine around a blend of dark and light munich with a little pils (10% or so) malt for the enzymes (to ensure total conversion) and a touch of cara munich and maybe a small addition of carafa special to darken it up some.
