Zymurgy / Re: Zymury's Best Beers in America clarification

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??

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. ::)

He is describing restaurants like French Laundry, Per Se, Alinea etc. It's obvious he has never been to any of them (for a number of reasons).

Ah, well looking closer I see that he lives in LA, apparently by choice. He deserves what he gets then. ;D

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Are corny keg Quick Disconnects universal?

It may not be the case, it was my theory when I had this problem and changing them worked for me.  My o-rings were worn and appeared to be binding when I put the QD on.

That's happened to me too. A little keg lube on the o-ring usually fixes things.

Now, if you're not making great beer, I don't really care what kind of system you have.  It just means you've got some work to do.

Well said, Gordon. Is there a resource you'd recommend for someone who's interested in Brewing Better Beer? ;)

Arrive at 5:30 or 10:30, not any reasonable dinner hour; sit in cramped quarters on tiny chairs; eat what the chef tells you to eat, and you'll take the damn sauce and like it. Oh, and no friggin' photos, dirtbag!

I'm glad I don't go to the places this guy eats. :o

On a ball-lock corny, at least, the gas and liquid QDs are not interchangeable. Or rather, they'll work, but one will be very tight and one very loose.

Can you make whiskey in Florida?  Yes.
May you make whiskey in Florida?  No.  ;)
This discussion should be done more discretely.

Yes/no is binary, so I'm pretty sure it's mathematically impossible to be any more discrete. ;D

I thought you were supposed to use butter for that, not vodka? :)

I think supercritical CO2 is the way to go, actually...

There is the implication that Gary's system "gets the job done" in that it makes beer (but not very good beer), while a Sabco makes beer as good as pros.

I didn't get that out of it at all. The article is primarily about home brewers with expensive commercial-grade systems. The drop-in about "Frankenstein" brewing was there to provide the counterpoint. It's a heavy-handed and irritatingly common journalistic practice.

I think the much bigger issue here is that Gary only brews six times a year. :o
