Technically speaking the difference between 1 and 10 million and 0 in 10 million is .... uhm ..... one.  ;)

Keith was daydreaming about brewing when they covered probability in math class.

Hey Keith, how bout some poker?   ;)

Ha! Obviously my grasp of probability is sound. You fly my self out to Hawaii for some poker and I'll fly us all back state side with my winnings. Guaranteed.

If I have 0 cookies and you give my your cookie, I cookie-having-value has increased by an infinite percentage.

OK, let's put it this way. I'll bet you $1000 that no one on this forum will win the Mega Millions jackpot.  My hand is now extended for an electronic handshake.  :D

My odds in winning are so close to 100% that I will round it off and call it certain.  ;)

Beer Recipes / Re: Saison and Pilsner 2 for 1

I love Styrian Goldings and Strisselspalt in a Saison for late addition.  In fact, I think the Saison is more suited to flameout / dry hops than a pilsner, which doesn't have an overwhelming hop aroma.

If you wanted to throw some hops in the whirlpool for one beer, you could drain half the kettle first if you have a counterflow or plate chiller.

German pils doesn't have much, but bo-pils does. Prima pils has an outstanding hop aroma - granted, it's amercian, but it's awesome.

I remember the last time I went in on a big lottery like this and one guy was so excited about it the day before and visibly upset when we didn't win, and those were the words I spoke to him.  :)

You guys realize there's only a slightly better chance you will win if you play as opposed to if you don't, right?  ;)

It's your beer, if you wanna add wheat go for it. Just not necessary. FWIW I went through the same "fad" (for lack of better word). I had a sack of wheat on hand and just threw some in because I wanted to use it. I can't disagree with that logic. It "may" help head retention.

As far as hops go, pils and saison both use a fairly heavily hopped recipe, so I do think it will work. I would aim for around 30 BUs for both. You could dry hop the saison with french strisselspalt to add some hop complexity.

+1  Just toss 'em in.   After a few days they'll sink, an added cold crash will facilitate sinking, too.

Which is why I'm always amused by people who feel they have to add weights to a hop bag.

I have seen the hop bags float! I don't use them anymore, but sure enough I have seen them at the top of the keg.  Just because, when you finish the keg and pop the lid and the hop bag is at the bottom doesn;t mean it was there the whole time.  ;)

Sounds like a plan, though I'd skip the wheat, personally. No real need for it in a pils. You also might consider skipping the sugar in the saison and just pair them side by side as one beer, two different yeast and really showcase the difference the yeast makes.

speaking of which, it's amazing how many people show up at my brewery expecting a free sample> I've even had some bring growlers. Do you go to a bakery and expect a free loaf of bread?  ??? why beer? And speaking of that, every Tom, dick and Harry organization expects you want to donate a keg to them for their event. does the band play for free? Does the caterer give her food away for free? I don't get it.

People seem to think graphic designers enjoy working for free too. ::)
