You just need to plan ahead and order one when you're halfway through the first. ;D
But then what to do with the beer when mountains are not blue any-more???

Poor reference to Coors marketing.

General Homebrew Discussion / How much did you brew in 2010?
« on: January 01, 2011, 07:56:43 PM »
It is this time of the year again to check the brew logs and do the tally.
I brewed 22 times and made 110 gal of beer. (3 times less then in 2009).

How much did you brew last year?
What was the beer you brew the most?

Look in your logs and have a fun.

A N. German Pilsner.  Maybe on Monday.  The 6L starter for 10.5 gallons is on the stir plate(s).

What are the differences between a Northern and Southern German pils?  I'm curious because I'd really like to brew more German pils this year and am trying to learn more about the subtleties. 
Would not a "Bitburger" be the Northern German Pils and Helles the southern pils?
Just a speculation on my part.

Now think about can flying at you and lands in your hand (presumably).
What do you think is going to happen when you open it?
Do you think that any CO2 come out of solution?

Sounds like fun to have good old faithful in my living room.

although they got kicked out after the landlord read about them in the paper.

I know this for a fact that you will NOT get federal brewers notice (commercial license) unless in the lease agreement (when you lease) it is explicitly written that you will be brewing beer in there.

How much time do you think it took them to line those bottles up....not to mention the false starts.  ;)

And that was all for one drink of beer at the end.
Shall we say dedication?

I'm on board with the need to keep the sparge water pH right, but I've heard Gordon comment strongly on temperature too.  I personally don't exceed 170F with my sparge water in addition to acidifying to under 6.0

Regarding 170F magic number. Czech brewers regularly sparge at 172F (convert to the C on your own).

All Grain Brewing / Re: Decoction vs Melanoidin Malt Question(s)
« on: December 30, 2010, 06:07:40 PM »
I've tasted melanoidin on its own, in a steeped and boiled sample.  Not impressed.  Some aroma and flavor but not much.  Dextrinous, kind of yucch really.  I'll never use it again.  Dark Munich has way more flavor and aroma.

I also had NOT positive experience with Melanoidin malt.

That's what I use.  I generally add it to a cup or so of warmed beer instead of water because I don't want to dilute my beer any more than necessary.

How much do you put in for a five-gallon batch? one sheet?

1/2 of the pack.
If you have a gram scale (like everybody should have) use 3 grams for 5 gal.

Equipment and Software / Re: wort aeration with perforated pipe
« on: December 29, 2010, 07:55:06 AM »
I have toured Slovak Brewery that was aerating in line with clean (sanitise) air.

I think trick to it is to have air mixed with wort in line.
Longer line (tube) you have more time it has to mix.

Sprayer is just as an insurance in my opinion.

I do not have DO meter so I do not know what my O2 levels are.
I aerate  with similar method in the transfer to the fermentor.
I have about 4 ft 3/8 clear tubing with pinhole on the BK end.
Pinhole allows air to be sucked to the tubing that mixes with passing by wort in the transfer.
On fermenter end I have a wort Sprayer like this:

I have fermented 1066 beers with no problem.
What I mean with "no problem" is 2 week fermentation and about 1014-1016 FG.
