The Pub / Done. Passed.
« on: August 03, 2011, 01:07:34 PM »
Hi everyone!  I finished my defense less than an hour ago and am dropping stuff off before going to the party. ;D

I probably won't be around until tomorrow, there is Deus to be opened and other things planned.

The Pub / trojan asteroid

This is one of the crazier things I've heard - not that it exists, but I don't think I understand the orbit, even with the accompanying animation . . .

There's an engineering contest one of my friends is involved with, if you're into it vote for the project and keep him employed. :)  He's not one of the guys in the video.

The Pub / what not to name your brewery
« on: July 18, 2011, 11:13:21 PM »
So what are some of the worst brewery names (real or imagined) you can think of.  I've got one . . .


Fluke Brewing Company.  If your beer tastes good, it's a Fluke. ;)

General Homebrew Discussion / Help me decide
« on: May 19, 2011, 10:32:18 AM »
I'm having a family free weekend - I thought it was just going to be Saturday AM to Sunday lunch, but it turns out it is going to be more like Friday AM (I might have to take the afternoon off :) ) until maybe as late as Sunday dinner.

What should I brew?

I'm definitely brewing a Weizen on Friday and a hoppy red beer on Saturday (Rapture Red).  Those are set.

I really need to brew some Flanders and get that going again.  I have a RIS recipe sitting around that should get brewed at some point, but I think I might put it off further.  I'm open to other suggestions.  morticaixavier had some ideas for rapture themed ingredients that might be good in the right style, but nothing is grabbing me.

I have a variety of malt and hops on hand, but there is a well stocked LHBS 20 minutes away and three more within 45 minutes.

What ideas have you got?  What else should I brew?

Classifieds / Seattle area beginner kit $57
« on: May 11, 2011, 09:23:02 AM »
If you know anyone looking to get started this is a good option.  I'm not sure how long this deal lasts, and I doubt they will ship.  Comes with a lesson.

I'm not affiliated with the store, other than it is my LHBS.  I don't have any other information.

Equipment and Software / mini malter
« on: May 07, 2011, 11:44:41 AM »
This is awesome.  I could use a scaled down one at home :)

http://www.oregonlive.com/living/index.ssf/2011/05/oregon_state_student_engineers.html

I wonder what they cost to build, and if it would easily scale to do a couple thousand pounds at a time.  Can you say "craft malting"?

Events / pre conference events
« on: May 04, 2011, 01:40:48 PM »
I'm going to be in San Diego early enough to hit the pre-conference events, and I'm trying to decide what to do.  http://www.somelikeithoppy.com/events.html

I'm not going to do a Stone tour, since I will likely have been there already (I'm getting to the area on Saturday).  I can't do both Brewery Tour A and B since they overlap.

Brewery Tour A, 10AM - 3PM: Ballast Point, San Diego Brewing Company, Coronado Brewing

Brewery Tour B, 1PM - 7 PM: Lightning Brewery, Green Flash, Rock Bottom La Jolla

Best of San Diego Beers, 5PM - 12AM: O'Brien's Pub (at least two beers apiece from Alpine, AleSmith, Ballast Point, Green Flash, Lost Abbey, Pizza Port and Stone along with a bonus keg or two from Russian River)

It's hard to decide, but I might do A, take a nap, then go to O'Brien's.  I have to be somewhere (and functioning) at 8:30 AM though, so I can't be out too late.  Maybe I should do tour B and try to get to bed early . . .

Has anyone scheduled anything yet?

Beer Travel / Bottled beers in NC
« on: April 22, 2011, 09:27:55 AM »
We've been through this before, but times change.  I'm looking for a list of bottled North Carolina (and maybe a bit surrounding there) beers to try.  I'll be heading there in a few months, and my brother has asked me for a list of beers for him to secure before I get there.  He's in the Raleigh area, but sometimes travels around the state and can pick up beers from other areas.

I know there are a lot of good breweries out Asheville way, but I don't know how many of them package.  It's got to be something he can get ahead of time and hold on to.  Specialties, one offs, and newer places are great, there's a good chance I've tried many of the ones that have been around for a while.
