The article didn't mention anything about the groupies or blow. You get 45 year old pot bellied groupies and the job blows.
Ha ha!  You made me spit beer all over my screen.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: NHC Finals Scorecards

scores are up too, by the way, in case anyone did not know that yet.  On the entry page.

Cool... Thanks. I did not know that.

Looks like my entry scored higher in the finals than it did to take first in the regionals... Still not enough to get a medal.... Next year!
Great job getting into the final round!  That is a win in itself.  I've entered the last two years and have yet to move on into the final round.  Next year is my theme song ;)

I wish I could get some in Ohio.

Ingredients / Apollo and Legacy Hops

I recently made a Rye IPA with Apollo and Legacy hops.  I've never used them before and I thought they would go nice with the rye because of the flavor descriptions.  Has anyone ever used these before and what are your thoughts on them?

1. 2010 American Barley Wine - This one just got better with age and the hops still stand out.  I won a 1st place and 2nd Best Of Show.

2.  Vanilla Porter - This is not Denny's recipe, a porter recipe I've tweaked for about 3 years and I soak the beans in Bourbon for a week then add to the keg.  My wife's favorite.

3.  Belgian IPA - I just made this for the first time about 4 months ago and it turned out to be a wonderful surprise.  I got some Weyermann Abbey Malt from a friend in my brew club and I used Wyeast 3522 (Denny's suggestion) along with Simcoe and Amarillo hops.  I need to brew this again soon.

I'm going to help my brother-in-law brew his first extract batch.  I haven't brewed an extract batch in about 5 years, so this ought to be interesting.

All of my hoppy beers seem to need at least a week in the keg before they meld together. I don't think I've ever noticed any difference between pellets and whole hops.

I made a Belgian IPA a few months ago and I used some Weyermann Abbey Malt 16L.  It gave the beer a nice amber/red color and I really liked the taste.  You could also use some Carared.

My LHBS is awesome.  They have better prices than online stores and will special order stuff for me.  Great people and this store has been selling grain and feed since the late 1800's.

Equipment and Software / Re: Dead fridge, brought back to life!
« on: May 24, 2013, 05:20:06 PM »
I can relate. Last week I came home from work and poured a glass of beer from my kegerator and noticed that the beer was not very cold...I check the thermometer in the fridge and it reads 60 and I hear no noise from the fridge whatsoever.  It's an old fridge so I unplug it and plug it back in again and nothing...I think, oh well I got it for free I guess I have to get a new one.  I go to the appliance store and order a new fridge (not cheap by the way) and when I come home...the kegerator is working fine and the thermometer is reading, I cancel my order and fridge is working fine all week....damn gremlins >:(

Ingredients / Re: combo hops for rye pale ale

Great Lakes recently released the "Rye of the Tiger"... I don't have much experience with drinking any Rye PA's but I was more than happy with this beer. They use Columbus, Warrior, and Simcoe.
I really enjoyed the "Rye of the Tiger" that I recently had on tap because I could taste the rye character.  I don't care for the SN "Ruthless" because I really can't taste the rye in it.

An APA to enjoy in some warmer weather.

Ingredients / Re: Amarillo
« on: April 23, 2013, 04:48:51 PM »
Amarillo is my favorite flavor hop in IPA's and APA's.  It's also has a great citrus aroma.  I like it with Simcoe (enjoying one while I type).  I've used it with Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook with good results as well.  It will go nice with Centennial, but to get a nice sense of the flavor maybe try bittering with Magnum and use the Amarillo for flavor and aroma additions.
