All Grain Brewing / Re: Batch sparging specifics

#1 and #3 will give you similar efficiency, give or take a few points.  #2 is not sparging and would give you lower efficiency.

My friend drove quite a few hours to try a bacon beer in Michigan (can't remember the brewery) and he was very disappointed....I just laughed ::)

If you cleaned it that many times and it still smells, I say get a new one.

Kegging a Rye IPA and Porter.  Brewing an APA due to the unusually warm weather.

Sometimes I have found that I am my biggest critic of my beers.  Maybe you are being a little too harsh on yourself gmac.

Beer Recipes / Re: Munich malt question

I made a Belgian Ale with 80% Munich and it came out great.

Since you bottled after 9 days, part pf the bitterness you're experiencing could be yeast that's still in suspension.  On your next batch, leave it in the fermenter for 2-3 weeks.  That will promote a cleaner beer.
+1000 patience in this area will reward you with better beer.  Even if the gravity doesn't drop after 9 days, the yeast are still doing some clean up work.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Highland Brewing Company

I always enjoy Highland beers when I visit my brother in Johnson City.  I also like the Asheville Pizza and Beer Co. (I think that's what it is called).

I made a Porter on Sat.  Tonight, I'm going to bottle my Blueberry wine ( I tasted a sample last night and it already tastes better than last year's).

I wouldn't use the champagne yeast, just use a large starter.

Thanks for posting the recipe.  That looks very tasty and worth a try.

I'm makin' a Rye IPA similar to Denny's recipe. I going to try and make the color red and more late hop additions.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: homebrew shelf life

Hops are also preservatives.  I believe that there are many variables to consider with the shelf life of a beer.  Some that come to mind are abv., amount of hops, malt, packaging, storage temp., etc.  Or you could taste some now and write down some tasting notes.  Then, save some for six months and a year and taste again and compare tasting notes. 

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: American Brown Style Guidelines
« on: February 22, 2012, 05:22:45 PM »
After reading this thread, it never really occured to me that an American Brown Ale should have citrus hop flavor/aroma.  I'm still learning about stlye guidelines.  In my own recipe, I have always used EKG and Williamete as flavor and aroma hops and I really like the results.  However, last weekend I used Cascade for flavor and aroma to see if I like it any better.  Just when I think I have a recipe nailed down I have to go and change it  :'(   Damn this beer ADD.
