Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale
« on: August 27, 2011, 04:37:19 PM »
I should start by saying I don't care for pumpkin beers. I have never found one that I could drink more than half the glass of. I love pumpkin pie - don't think those spices belong in a beer.

Second, there's not a whole lot of pumpkin flavor in pumpkin beers. Many of them use NO PUMPKIN in the beer, only the spices. So don't expect a lot of pumpkin flavor.

Lastly: DIE PUMPKIN BEERS!!! DIE!!!!!! ;)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: How much yeast can you crop from the top?
« on: August 27, 2011, 03:53:41 PM »
I've never used that strain before but if it is a true top cropper you can pull a lot of yeast off the top. I have pulled nearly all the krausen off some belgian strains before and still got around 90% aa. Most of the yeast is still in the beer, so pulling 2/3rds should be fine. That said, it's gonna depend on the yeast how much you will actually be able to pull. Using the French Saison strain from WY regularly and I have a hard time top or bottom cropping that strain. But WLP500 tops and bottom crops nicely.

I like Newcastle well enough, it just isn't anything special IMO. I love Bock and Doppelbock so the fact that Shiner calls that beer a "Bock" really irks me. Neither of them are terrible beers, and I have carried Newcastle in the can back packing a few times. But out of those two beer, if they were the only two beer available, I'd pick SNPA.  ;)

If you want fruit wood for free go to you local orchard and ask them when they prune their trees. Then just pick up a truck load full, more than you could probably use.

Yeah, but lots of things we do in our kirchen, let alone homebrewery, would deemed "unsafe" by the health department.

Might not be a bad idea to filter just in case. Not only because of potential polutants but because of bird crap or whatever else was on the roof/gutters. And you'll need to raise your Ca ppms up to at least 50 if you do nothing else for proper yeast flocculation.

You will have to add minerals, rain water will be very soft. It also may pick up some polutants but I'm not so sure that is a huge problem. Greg Noonan advised against using rain water because of polutants.

You just have to take it on the head, and then clean up and move on.

I've said it once today, and I'll say it again...................THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!
