I thought all weaze's beers were dry-porked?

Also, dry-Jolly Ranchered.

I'm in Boulder.  My house is only a few years old and has great insulation.

Gotcha. I've never lived anywhere else in CO, so I wasn't sure what would be normal. OTOH, it is nice being able to brew lagers in the summer. ;)

I'm intending to use Arrowhead drinking water (without fluoride) since the spring water looks like its values are all over the place.  Is this a good choice?

IMHO the ranges in that report are wide enough that it isn't really useful. RO from the machine at the grocery still will be cheaper anyway, and then you can add the salts you want.

This isn't the Feds either, it is the States that set the water laws.

There's an *enormous* volume of federal law regulating water distribution, especially in the West. This is a great summary by the CBO that I came across while researching who the hell I had to talk to in order to exceed my allocation and, you know, operate a brewery.

If that's the quality of recipes on that site, you might want to avoid them!

The only thing I don't like about BeerTools is that the recipe database is *enormous*. You really have to do some work to separate the wheat from the chaff.

In the kettle threw in 2 oz of Citra to the remain 5ish gallons, rewhirlpool and steep for 10 minutes.

I really like that idea, but whatever I do has to be done post-fermentation. The more I think about it, the more I'm liking the idea of dry-hopping with Citra.

I was thinking about the spices and the yeast being used. How about a small amount of cardamom?

I did a cardamom tripel not too long ago. Wasn't a big fan, frankly.

The sun causes cancer, too, and probably in higher percentages than bacon...

What I still have trouble believing is that according to the DOE tables, I get less background radiation here at 9300' than I did when I lived on a limestone slab at sea level.

any advice on the profile would be greatly appreciated: 

You have some calcium, which is good, and the alkalinity is moderate, but the sulphate and chloride levels are out of control. There are some beers in which you might want one or the other to be that high, but not both. So you'll probably want to dilute - possibly heavily - for all beers.

Does the water even taste good? That TDS level is out of control.

Also note, didn't it say these people ate bacon every day and only had a 29% increase?  Most of us don't eat bacon that much.

I eat bacon almost every day, and I don't expect I'll stop based on this. What the hell, I'm already banking on artificial liver technology. ;)

Denny, you won your land? like in a lotto? cool!  ;D

Card game. ;)

Which reminds me of the coolest story of how a town was named that I think I've ever heard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Show_Low,_Arizona

Is that better than "frost brewing"? Frost brewing sounds colder, and beer's better cold.

I do like the idea of using some candi syrup. Do you guys think half a pound in a 5 gal batch would be noticeable? I don't want to bump up the gravity too much.

I also just remembered that I have some Citra, and I'm thinking that would make a terrific dry hop for something like this.

Decisions, decisions...
