Other Fermentables / Re: Wine advice
« on: October 22, 2011, 07:49:18 AM »
I really like the reds, particulary Pinot Noir, from Williamette Valley in Oregon.  Some of these might be in the $16 range, but well worth it.

Brewing an IPA and kegging my Belgian.

I say taste it.  You should be able to taste the smokiness.

I like this beer very much and I'll have to get some.  I tried to make one this year with fresh Centennials and Cascades and it didn't turn out as well as expected.

You should post your stout recipe.  In my Porter, I usually cut down on roasted grains like roasted barley, but increase the chocolate malt with some crystal.

The Pub / Re: 12 Extremely Disappointing Facts About Popular Music

Bad Popular Music gives inspiration to the underground music scene.  So much material to make fun of.

Looks good!  I just made Blueberry Wine with my wife for the second time this summer.  We pick the blueberries around my parent's house in the Upper Pennisula, Michigan and last year's tasted great and we have no more left :(  This year I made it a little stronger (higher OG) and I made 6 gallons instead of 5.  However, wine making can really test your patience compared to brewing.

IMO Amarillo hops give a wonderful grapefruit flavor in my IPA's.

All Grain Brewing / Re: pick up tube picked up most the trub
« on: October 03, 2011, 01:27:30 PM »
I've seen at least one experiment by a homebrewer where the beer with the trub left in was preferred over one wit it removed.  I wouldn't worry about it if I was you.
I agree, I usually get a little trub in my fermenter and I reuse my yeast.  I've had no problems.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: bottle carbonating an Imperial IPA??
« on: October 01, 2011, 09:02:50 PM »
I would give the bottles a chance to carbonate at room temp for several more weeks before any additional yeast additions.  All that uncapping and pouring would add unwanted oxygen to it and should only be a last resort.

I agree, I think you got them cold too quick.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Rye Pale Ale clarity

I usually use around 20% Rye Malt and have used up to 30% and it has always been clear out of the keg.

I don't use a lid.  You can also check out Denny's site to see how to use a SS braid for your cooler.  This is what I use and I have never had a stuck run off.

I've never done an all Munich base malt before, so I might as well try it.  Denny are you suggesting dump the CaraMunich because of the Candi Syrup?  I made a Belgian last Saturday and used the D-45 Candi Syrup and I could definitely smell a great caramel aroma.  I can't wait to use the D-180.
