The Pub / Re: "Never Again" beers
« on: August 16, 2011, 12:43:24 PM »
Last winter my wife and I were at the local brewery (Maumee Bay Brewing Co.) and she asked for one of their specialty beers called "Smoke Bomb".  Luckily, the bartender said you should try a sample of this before you buy a pint.  We both tasted it and it was flat out awful and we could barely swallow a sip - way too much smokiness.  Later I found out that they used 40% cherry smoked malt in the grist ???

very impressive! ;)

Start the class with around 10 min left with the mash.  You can explain in 10 min what you did up to this point.  Then, proceed with lauter, sparge, and boil.  Batch sparging could also speed things up a bit.

Thanks, I just read a previous thread (I should probably do that before posting, duh) about using agave and most mention adding it at the end of the boil.  So, I will use it like honey.

Has anyone used this in a beer?  I got a bottle of organic blue agave (23.5 oz) and thought about adding it to a beer, any thoughts?

Wife demands some Porter and it sounds good since I've been drinking a lot of hoppy beers lately.  Hey Denny how's that quad coming along?

Congrats! Now that's a reason for a party, cheers.

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

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.
