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

I have the same feelings about the Dolphins as you have against the Pats...just hasn't seemed worth the effort in the past few years.  ;D

I can't believe I have to wait 9 more days!!!   >:(

I seem to remember the wildcat giving you guys some problems!  ;)

I just always liked the Dolphins and put them as my #2 favorite team. I only root against them when they play the Titans. ;) Until the Titans came to Nashville (which is about 2 hours away) they used to broadcast Miami every Sunday. But even when I lived in PA I had a special affinity for the 'fins. Not really sure why, perhaps just the color or their uniforms.  ::)

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Beer Flavor-Hops?
« on: January 27, 2012, 12:34:13 PM »
Once I got a very weird off flavor from dry hopping with some home grown hops. Such an odd flavor that I decided not to use the rest of the hops and dumped the beer.

That said, "sour" sounds like an infection to me. Hops have a myriad of flavors, sour is not one of them. Unless it is possible you are misstating the off flavor.

As a long time dolphins fan I've never found a lack of motivation to root against the pats. Should be a good game regardless. Plus I get to eat chili and drink beer all day.  :)

You may have problems with the building inspector or the health inspector with that much steam in the building. Just depends on your local regulations and how strict your inspectors are.

I have my doubts as to you being able to get the jacket on that tank to pass code for a steam jacket, unless it was used by one before. I'm sure you know how dangerous a broken seam on a steam jacketed tank could be.

Baically because the lack of a steam stack and the type of manway. Looks like what you have would suit a MT perfectly but I think you could find a better BK. Is there a reason you would rather use it as a BK?

There was a certain amount of construction that went into the steam build that I can't recall now. But if you have any doubts, check pro brewer. There are a few posts about people being shocked at the cost of installation.

No kidding, the boiler we looked at was 2-3K and the BK we looked at was 5K. The quote for installation was 30K.

I am having the finishing touches  of my BK installation installed tomorrow. If it works I will post all about it. Basically for my MT and BK it costs us about 15K and installation was about 3K because we had to get larger diameter gas ran over to the brewing area.

Looks like a better mashtun to me. in fact it looks almost exactly like my mash tun. I'd work on moving that direction and look for a BK that can be steam stacked.

That's what I was thinking too since it has a paddle configuration already in place. How are you going to get that monstrosity home Kyle?

Problem with the paddle configuration is you have to figure out how to work with it with the false bottom since the paddle attaches to the bottom. Not impossible but I haven;t worked mine out yet.

What did you wind up doing for a brew kettle?

I ended up with a used boiler. They are cheap and available. I'll take some pictures and post them soon. But my MT looks almost exactly what you have.

also, I'd recommend staying away from steam if you consider yourself on any type of a budget. You will absolutely choke up your lunch when you find out how much it costs to install. I was all ready to go with steam until the estimate came in. Boiler was cheap, jacketed BK was cheap too. Installation was over 30K.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Maris Otter

MO is an english variety of barley and the english method of brewing is traditionally done with a single infusion so I don't understand why anyone would suggest you would need a p-rest on MO.

I'm actually looking forward to the game. I think it will be a good one. I will become a GIANTS fan for one day.  ;)

for Ruthless I'm thinking Cascade or Centennial. Even though I don't care for Citra much it is very nice in a randall and I'm thinking it would pair nicely with Ruthless. Also a nice method to knock out some of the carbonation in that beer and make it softer.
