All Grain Brewing / Re: Brewing with bread in the mash
« on: February 21, 2013, 03:23:44 PM »
Is it the rye flavor you're after, or the spicy flavor of the caraway seeds that are often used in rye bread?  It doesn't seem like the bread (without seeds) in the mash would add much character - especially flavor - to the beer.  You can get "bread-like" flavors by balancing your malt bill.   If it's the caraway flavor notes that you're seeking, I think you could just crack or crush some seeds and add them to your kettle as a late or knock-out addition.  I don't know how much seeds to add, but I'd maybe start with 1/2 teaspoon crushed.

I've had good results with WY2308, WLP833, and WLP830 but I think I like WY2206 best.

Thanks for all the support guys. I really appreciate it. Meds are kicking in, and I'm slowly returning to your regularly scheduled Weaze.
Whew!  I started reading and almost thought you were headed toward saying you were returning to "normal." ;)  It's the "regularly scheduled Weaze" we'll be glad to have back!  Meds aside, have you checked your bacon count?  Are you getting enough sun?  Pork fat and sunshine cure a lot of ills.

All kidding aside, I hope you're feeling like yourself again soon.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Solera beers

There's a member of our local club who has had a Solera going for several years.  His is a Flanders Red and each year's batch seems to get a little more character than the last.  It's good stuff, and he's won several medals with it in local and regional competitions.

Equipment and Software / Re: Small fridge for temp control?
« on: January 22, 2013, 02:34:04 PM »
I was given a small-ish fridge that has a freezer unit in it.  It had enough vertical clearance to ferment in a 7.9-gallon bucket or a 6-gallon carboy - but it wasn't deep enough so the door wouldn't close all the way.  I I removed the door liner that had the shelves on it, but that was still not enough.  So, I removed the entire door assembly and built a wooden "collar" out of 2x10 that extended the depth of the fridge and re-mounted the door.  Then I put the whole works on an inexpensive furniture dolly to help support the collar and make it easy to move around.  It doesn't get cold enough for lagering (I have another fridge for that) but it will ferment a 6-gallon batch of lager or ale just fine.

The Pub / Re: Erlenmeyer flask wine decanter - $60
« on: November 30, 2012, 02:55:13 PM »
I am sure it is completeley impossible to manufacture meth without erlenmeyer flasks as well. There couldn't possibly be some other non-regulated glass ware that would work right? unless you also need a permit for measuring cups, mason jars and pyrex baking dishes.

You don't even need anything that fancy.  A lot of meth is made using the small batch "shake & bake" method these days.  It can be done in a plastic soda bottle.  The company I work for bid on and won a State contract to do meth lab hazmat cleanups, but we only got a couple calls over a whole year because the sneaky meth rats do this now instead of setting up a whole lab.  They do it because it's mobile and harder to get caught.  It can be done in the back seat of a moving car and, if the cops show up, the meth rats can toss the whole "lab" out the window and drive off.

I guess the less you can see of my face, the better I look.
I resemble that remark.
