I'm poor. I mean really poor. I'm so poor the other day I was kickin' a can down the road and someone asked me what I was doing and I said "movin'.

I am a coffee snob (not a beer snob necessarily, but definitely a coffee snob) and my parents got me a kuerig a few years ago much to my dismay. I used it for instant hot water into my frensh press or aero-press (the latter of which makes a great cup of coffee, better than french press if anyone is interested) but on occasion I would use the K-cups and I have to admit they really weren't half bad. there was one I particularly liked but I can't recall the name now. Onyx or something.

Regardless, the pump broke and I never replaced it. My parents had great customer service from them on their broken machine though.

Kegging and Bottling / Firkin help
« on: March 08, 2012, 08:41:21 AM »
I have two firkins I need to fill but don't know what to order or really what in the hell to do. Any help would be appreciated. I was looking at the NB website and looks like they have all the accoutrements but not sure what goes where how.

Want to team up, Keith? It looks like there are still rooms available.

Plus I can get you sauced and pry out some trade secrets. ;)

Sure - if there are still rooms available I will gladly split one with you sean. I thought they were all sold out.

I need one too, and while I'm not flying across teh country with my jockey box or kegs I will sleep on the floor and you will be so drunk you won't hear me snore.  :)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: stuck ferment????

That would be maybe 2 points off, not nearly 20.

I always check my hydrometer calibration before I do anything drastic.

That was my first thought too, but surely it can't be off that much. Yeast, picthing temps, ingredients, fermentation temps, we need all that info to help you. For a beer to underattenuate by that much is very unusual. As a guess, possibly your fermentation temp crashed or your yeast was old and unhealthy. Maybe you used 50% oats and didn;t provide enough enzymes to break them down. Just impossible to say at this vantage point, only guess.

So, can you give us some more details? Your attenuation is terrible and there is most certainly a problem. I would advise against putting that beer in bottles.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Beer Line Cleaner...Rinsing

i rinse mine. i use a keg of cleaner and a keg of hot water and follow the cleanse with a rinse. No need to use sanitizer IMO.

Wood/Casks / Re: Possible barrel source for people

Would anyone else be interested in their specialty oak options? If I find enough people to split a bag up with, I could order it and divide it up. I really don't need 40lbs of chips or cubes all by myself.

I might be. I need to look into what they have. what were you thinking?

Going Pro / Re: mash filtration technology systems?
« on: March 04, 2012, 10:23:49 AM »
I'm interested in learning about any technology that has to do with homebrewing or pro brewing. certainly is something I am interested in discussing. probably not something I will be adding to my brewery anytime soon though. but I agree it is fun to talk about it.
