I officially hate you for showing me this game.

Fortunately, I just vaporized your reply, so I don't have to deal with your negativity.

Hello, want to kill some time?

(I'm up to 97 on single tile BTW. Just can't seem to crack triple digits.)

This is from 22B, but the wording in 22C is almost identical:
Quote
Comments: Any style of beer can be smoked; the goal is to reach a pleasant balance between the smoke character and the base beer style. IF THIS BEER IS BASED ON A CLASSIC STYLE (E.G., ROBUST PORTER) THEN THE SPECIFIC STYLE MUST BE SPECIFIED. CLASSIC STYLES DO NOT HAVE TO BE CITED (E.G., “PORTER” OR “BROWN ALE” IS ACCEPTABLE).

So if the base beer isn't one that would fit into any of the other subcategories, just come up with a reasonable name for it. The whole idea is that the judges need to know what you're going for, so that they can at least pretend to come up with some guidelines against which to judge it.

They shouldn't be entered in 23, IMHO. That's why there are separate subcategories for wood and smoke in the first place: to get them out of the catch-all.

Right, you have to upgrade to a paint stirrer: http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/mix-stir-plastic-24.html

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Starter Question

No worries. Unless your kitchen/basement/whatever is absolutely filthy, you could probably leave the foil off and not have any problems. Yeast are pretty good at killing off the baddies, and they're going to have a helluva numerical advantage too.

I don't think it is blogspot disallowing ... I've used pictures from them on other forums.[/quote]

That is what's happening. Your URLs and formatting are correct, but they won't serve a hotlink.

Great. Now I have to figure out how to get my kid out of the carboy before my wife gets home.

I'm pretty sure I've seen a picture of YOU in your kettle, so I wouldn't doubt it... ;)

I'll remember that for next time...I have a vienna lager kit that I'm gonna take a stab at, it will be my first attempt at a lager.

Do you have a way to keep the temperature at 55°F or lower? If not, you just can't brew a lager. The yeast that comes with the kit probably isn't very good for a lager either. Sorry to sidetrack, just wanted to let you know.

3. Set up some kind of temperature control. All you need is a bucket/cooler, some water, and optionally ice/towel/fan.

If I ever find myself getting close to the 1000 post count, I'm going to take a serious look at getting a life.

On your current pace, you have 11 months until you have to worry about it. ;D

What if you don't want a short pour?

Carboys are fine, unless you don't know what you're doing. might one day make a mistake.

Fixed that for you. ;D

My worst brewday mistake to date was actually my most recent brew. I measured out 3.75 gal of strike water instead of 4.75, so needless to say I massively undershot my mash temp. That 1.051 APA got down to 1.005...
