I would be worried that even with FermCap you will have boilover when you add hops.
Have you ever clean a boilover on the stove?  :D

You will probably have to have a bartender license because you are SERVING to the public.
As Fred mentioned check with your municipality.

As far as license is concerned, your insurance agent should help you in that area.
Good luck.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Saaz in a German Pils
« on: December 13, 2010, 09:37:42 PM »
Fred I do not mean to be difficult but:

Saaz were grown in Bohemia, modern day Czechoslovakia, and have a spicy nose and a spicy flavor. 
Czechoslovakia existed from 1918 to 1993.
In 1993 It split into two republic Czech Republic and Slovak Republic.

Bohemian Pils must exhibit the spicy character of the Saaz hops to be in style. 
Not necessarally. There are Czech Pilsner brewed (in Czech republic) with 100% Magnum.

The water was extremely soft.
May be in Pilsen.
Bohemian pilsner is brewed in lager geographical area then just city of Plzen / Pilzen.
Water softness vary from soft to moderate.

Pilsner Urquall is a fine example of the style but there is more to Bohemian Pilsner then just Pilsner Urquell.
If you ever travel to Czech republic try to find small independent breweries.
You will discover wide array of beers that are Bohemian Pilsners and might not fit into BJCP style guidelines.

And now carry on.

You want to be between 10 and 15% boil-off per hour.
This is interesting number because commercial brewers are targeting 3% evaporation rate.
I read the Siebel document.

Once I got Global Munich from Midwest Supply.
To my recolection it was 12 to 15L.
It made great Dunkel.

Does yeast stress cause more sulfer to be produced?

That is my understanding that stressed yeast is producing sulphur.
What would be the stress factors?
Underpitching is one of them.
How about fermenting too cold?

Currently 22 degF in Green Bay area of Wisconsin.  We had approx. 6 in. of snowfall since yesterday evening.  After this storm passes we will be experiencing high temps in the teens and lows in the single digits.  It is finally winter in Wisconsin.   :)

By last account we got 22 inches of snow.
I have spend some quality time over the weekend cleaning up the snow.
Now it is 1F.

Looks like winter out there.

They sure seem to have a lot of quality issues. I'm not sure I'd want that constantly repeated on TV.
A little drama in the show.

Not sure about that.
Link you posted is just analyses sheet that you get from supplier company like brewers supply group:

or County Malt Supply group:

There is not a lot of info about it.

Would different fermentation schedule help with elimination sulfur in the first place?

Denny, do you know if Gambrinus use to be Canadian Malting?

That's what I seem to recall, David.  I don't know if that's still true.

I do not think so. Gambrinus Malting to my knowledge is relatively small operation.
