Beer Recipes / Re: Converting an APA to extract

With 18 oz of diastatically active malts out of 42 oz total, I'd worry about conversion. You might want to add half a pound of base malt just to be sure.

I'd suggest a series of single-hop IPAs. That'll help you gain familiarity with the different varieties, and may give you some ideas for blends you want to try in the future.

Never heard that one. Even if it did help, which I kind of doubt, a teaspoon is a fair amount. I'd worry about flavor carryover.

FWIW I've had good results using a convection oven set for the lowest temperature (175°F) with the door cracked open.

Long story even longer, I was planning on putting my one gallon batch on some blackberries as an experiment but now I am thinking I will put the whole 6 gallon batch on berries to try to cover this camp fire taste. does it seem like that might work?

Sounds like it might be throwing good money after bad. Personally I'd write this one off and re-brew.

I'm debating doing a chocolate chile stout as a winter seasonal next year and calling it "Mayan Meltdown". So I suppose if the end comes and I happen to be at work I'll reach for one of those.

Gotcha.  I'm starting to feel like it's okay as long as the ambient temperature stays between 58F and 63F.  The beer should be fine.  Don't see a reason to worry otherwise.

The only potential problem with controlling the air temperature is that it could make the compressor cycle more often than you want. Measuring the beer temperature would make the controller cycle for longer, less often.

Does anyone know how to get access to the original article from "Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences?"

http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2011/08/17/1105430108.full.pdf+html?sid=b772ba61-76ba-4a4a-9223-4bfd5bc39e2a

If that's the only article you want it's $10.

That's friggen hilarious! Can't believe you got snow already.

It isn't "already", it's "still". I can see pockets out my window on the north slopes, starting at about 11,500 ft.

Zymurgy / Re: 2011 Gold Winning Strong Ale - Hey! That's My Beer's Name!
« on: August 24, 2011, 06:27:18 PM »
That's a great name. I'm calling mine Big Dump, since it's brewed first thing in the spring and put away for the following winter.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Moktoberfest yeast recommendations?
« on: August 24, 2011, 04:01:41 PM »
Personally, even though you'll only be able to lager it for 2-3 weeks, I'd brew it as a lager. Accept no substitutes!

2578
There is no such thing as secondary fermentation.

What about bottle conditioning?

2579
I've done a month or more without ill effects, even in the 60s.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Danstar dry yeast, prices are nuts!
« on: August 23, 2011, 05:25:30 PM »
Supply and demand. I don't know why it took them so long after Fermentis raised prices, but they're back in line with their competitors now.

Regarding liquid vs. dry, the dry packets (when properly rehydrated) still have twice as many cells as the liquid products.
