Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Opinions on aeration system
« on: July 07, 2011, 07:21:14 AM »
As lagers become more of my brewing portfolio, one soon realizes that O2 will get you to the 10-12 ppm often quoted that you need for lager yeast.  Using air you can only get to about 8 ppm.

FWIW, the saturation point at 50°F is ~12 ppm, so if you're chilling before aerating you can also get to the recommended levels for a lager.

This is the sort of thing that is funny when you've been drinking, but at 10:30 am... ehhhhh... She just seems annoying.

My thoughts exactly. Mildly amusing, but more jump cuts than a Michael Bay film. The shtick (girl pretending to be drunk) got old somewhere around the 50th little "sketch". To hold my interest, there would have to be either some situational humor, or some actual cooking.

If anyone can recommend a good tap room or brewpub that isn't in Broad Ripple, is on the north side or near the fairgrounds, is open on Saturday night, and isn't likely to be utterly packed, I'd be grateful.

Broad Ripple Brewpub would be my first choice for a pub (Scotch eggs!), or Chumley's for a tap room, but if you're staying on the north side check out the Beer Sellar. About 50 taps and big enough that you'll be able to get a seat even on a Saturday. The only downside is that they allow smoking indoors.

Thr3e Wise Men just opened a few months ago. It's in Broad Ripple, but in a strip mall so parking shouldn't be an issue. From there you could easily walk to Chumley's, BRBP, or Brugge.

Assuming you had a healty and appropriate pitch of yeast

And plenty of oxygen. That might be the biggest variable for home brewers.

Don't feel too bad. I've never come across a PTE either.

.... no Yellowhammer brewing???  :-\

That was essentially my reaction as well. It might be interesting to see the results with all the votes divided by production, instead of just the results for the breweries.

Cool map, I haven't seen that.  Thanks Sean.  It might need updating though, we're pushing 150 breweries in WA, with fewer than 7 million people.  That qualifies us for 20+ status.

You're right, it's from the BA's 2008 membership, so it's getting a little long in the tooth.

Wait, you're in Silverton? I kept thinking you were in Silverthorne...

I get that a lot. Going to Denver-area festivals is fun. One guy actually told me that we'd misspelled Silverthorne on the banner. :o

I think you're doing just fine as long as you don't live in the South. ;D

Keith, start franchising!

Kentucky Breakfast Stout is a bourbon barrel-aged version of Breakfast Stout.

It's actually a different base beer as well.

I would be skeptical of using some domestic Munich malts, but the beers I've  made with Best, Weyermann, Dingeman's are out of this world.

FWIW, I've been using Cargill Munich lately since it's what we stock at the brewery, and I've been pleasantly surprised.

I may be in Denver in August sometime - how close is Silverton?

About seven hours each way. :-\

Being a hippie is "cool" nowadays???

Being yourself is always cool. If that makes you a hippie, so be it.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: spent grains killed my plants??
« on: June 25, 2011, 09:17:27 AM »
Spent grain has a fairly high nitrogen content. It's entirely possible that using too much of it could harm the plants, just like "burning them out" on a high-nitrogen fertilizer.

Congrats! Hope some more money comes with the title. ;)

Yup, I'm now making more than I did delivering pizza. As long as I don't stop to break it down hourly. ;)

Are you coming to the Colorado State Fair Foam Fest this year?

The brewery will be there, but I probably won't be able to make it personally. It's two days before Burning Man and in the opposite direction.

They've had me in the bullpen for a while, but today the owner smacked me on the ass and sent me trotting out to the mound. I am Sean Terrill, Head Brewer.

... I already changed one of the recipes. ::)
