Looks like you could do some experimenting with these.  Try using these in your own recipes and make sure to note the differences.

The Pub / Re: What is Your Favorite Time of Day?

Sunrise is the best time of the day
Watching colors turn from gray
Start of a brand new day

Noontime is the best time of the day
Sun moving across the sky
Sun shining so very high

Sunset is the best time of the day
Watching colors as they change
No two days are ever the same

Midnight is the best time of the day
Colors are rich, black and deep
The day ends so I can sleep

The lyrics to the song Sunset from one of my former bands Milkcarton

It'll be fine. That's probably the yeast still doing their thing with the priming sugar.  An infection would appear near the top of the beer level and possibly leaving a ring that sticks to the inside of the bottle.  Wait another week and enjoy.

Blatz, nice looking lager.  You're making me thirsty before noon ;)

My buddies Cenntenials are ready, so we're going to do a wet (fresh) hop IPA on Sun.

Thanks guys, I've been hooked on brewing now for 5 years and now I will definitely be entering more competitions.

My buddy uses them in the secondary for his Chocolate Stout and it tastes like a wonderful desert in beer form.  I'm not sure how much he uses, sorry.

very nice!  I wish I had that instead of bottling for my vacation to the UP in August.

Homebrew Competitions / My first Comp
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:28:10 AM »
I finally enterd my first homebrew competition at the county fair.  I've always had an excuse for not entering - I hate bottling, but the truth is I've been too lazy or maybe intimidated that if I compete it will take the fun out of my brewing.  Well I decided that it was time and what I really wanted was good feedback on my brews especially the negative comments (friends don't give negative comments when they are drinking free beer).  I received 1st place for my American Barley Wine and 3rd place for my Amber Ale.  The Barley Wine came in a close second for best of show - I was so close to having my Barley Wine brewed at the local brewery.  Anyway, I don't want to just toot my own horn, but I would like to thank all of you on the forum who have helped me with tips, hints, and ideas that have helped me brew better beer(not a commercial for Gordan's book :D).  It is nice that accomplished homebrewers take the time to help others out like myself.  Thanks again


It looks like making bread with a bread machine.

You could try Carared or a couple oz of Chocolate.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Attenuation
« on: July 17, 2011, 07:50:45 AM »
First, the extract could be to blame for the FG.  Some extracts are more unfermentable than others and when I did extract brewing my FG's seemed always too high as well.  Second, you might want to consider making a yeast starter and see if that helps.  Third, you could try partial mash by adding a couple lbs of two-row which could help your fermentability.

I took the advice of Denny with the Carared for a red ale about a year ago and my wife and I liked it quite a bit.  It didn't last long once I invited some friends over.
