Boy, go out of town for a couple months and you really slip in the standings, huh? 8)
I was wondering where did you go.
Glad to see you back.

Beer Recipes / Re: Vienna Lager fermentation question

If you want your Vienna to be darker, you can always do a decoction.  Or use some dark Munich.  Or both.

+1

When brewing German beers...do as the Germans do...   ;)  :D
small correction.
When brewing Austrian beer.... Do as the Austrians do...

But that would not be correct ether because Austrians do not do it anymore.

Some people say that forums are part of "social networking".
Boy I hate that name.

If you are a brew pub you need good food to keep the lights on.

Keith...we can definitely agree on this.  Good food is essential IMO.

Average brewpub brings about 11% revenue from beer.
So brewing your own beer will set you apart in the market but food will make you money.

Just to put it into perspective.

I have seen it at NHC this year.
It has a large holes that pallets can flow thru easily.
Correct me if I am wrong but it is supposed to work for whole hops only.

What everyone reading this post needs to realize and consider is that 83.7% of all statistics are made up, right on the spot.  ;D
It goes the way:

Very cool.

I would like to see current fridges last that long.

Ron, I picked up a normal double basin SS for $20 at a recycling place.  But one like Mic is talking about was $600 at a used restaurant supply place.

I'll have to keep that in mind.  Thanks for the tip Denny.
You can get new one with shipping for about $660.
Google for "three compartment sink"
Ask me how I know  ;)

I don't know...how do you know?  Maybe because you bought one and are starting a brewery.  :-\
And now the jig is out  :)

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How do you blend your beers.
« on: September 12, 2010, 05:49:28 AM »
Thank you for the ideas.

Another question is how do I blend it into the keg?
Let say I have two kegs with base beer and one empty clean keg.
My blend is 35% (1.75 gal) + 65% (3.25).
How do I know that I transfered 1.75 gal from first keg?
Do I use scale?

Would someone be willing to share technique how to blend and bottle beers?
How to be consistent across multiple batches of the same base beers?
I was thinking about it the other day but so far no cigar.
Thank you.

I am a believer of step mashes and decoctions.

Beer Recipes / Re: AHA recipe Wiki needs a boost!
« on: September 09, 2010, 02:28:48 PM »
And when you list a recipe, always list the awards/competition/score it was in.  Some other than "Joe said it was a good recipe"
I do not enter competitions.
Would saying that blatz or bluesman liked it count?

You need to use NON metallic abrasive.
Something like appropriate grid sandpaper or emery cloth.
