Yeast and Fermentation / Re: sugar added to secondary
« on: September 11, 2010, 09:38:53 AM »
I don't secondary, but if I did I wouldn't bother with it.  I'd just give it a blast of CO2, but you might not have that option.  Depending on how long your primary is though, there might already be enough going on to purge it anyway.  I don't think what you're doing hurts necessarily, just adds risk of contamination with questionable rewards.

But anyway, I think you should examine why you are doing a secondary in the first place and if you really need to.  Many of us don't feel like it adds anything to most beers.

Here is one Denny may struggle with.

Rah, rah, ah, ah, ah
Roma, Roma, mah,
Ga Ga, ooh, la,la
Lady Gaga?  I was in a hotel in Germany last year, and after I got tired of trying to translate the German TV on the fly I put on MTV.  I don't remember the name of the song, but it was on high rotation.  Bad Romance maybe?

I think when people figure out the song, they should include the real lyrics so we don't have to try to figure it out.  In my case I think those are the actual lyrics.

All Things Food / Re: Ethnic and Regional Cooking

But Planet Barbeque looks like it takes up where BBQ Bible left off, lots of very varied world cuisines represented.  The guy has a pretty sweet gig, travelling the world and sampling the best of the world's grillmasters produce.
I have BBQ Bible, and would love to know if people think it is worth it to get Planet BBQ as well.  Is it different enough?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Air Lock Drips Vodka Into Fermenting IPA
« on: September 10, 2010, 10:06:34 PM »
I don't think it's the vodka at all.  Even assuming you dumped 4 ounces of 100 proof vodka into 5 gallons, you've got 640 ounces of beer, and you added 4*50%/640, that's less than 0.33% ABV added to your beer.

But the vodka was probably 40%, it was probably less than 4 ounces, and you probably have more than 5 gallons in that 14.5 gallon fermenter.  So I think it's probably more like 0.1% ABV added.  If it tastes alcoholic, I think it is more likely from the 72F fermentation temp or the huge attenuation.

Funny that this topic was started by a guy who said this (my emphasis):

I've always thought that it did add a slight honey taste to the beer, but I really wonder how much of that is psychological.  I've done enough study of how preconceptions effect perception to be skeptical of my own tastings when it isn't done blind.  And I haven't done that with honey malt.

Maybe they need to change that pie chart to include audio post production types . . .  ;D

I was an English major in college, and that's one I still get wrong almost every time!
I usually ask myself, if I change the word to "create" or "change", which one makes more sense?  Are you creating perception or changing perception?  Change is affect, create is effect.

It might not work in all sentences, but it's easy to remember which is which - affect has a C in it, and change starts with C.   ;) ;D

I never mess those up when I'm writing, but when I'm typing I do it all of the time.  Obviously my hand knows the difference, my fingers don't. :)

That should never be a problem if you're willing to pay up front.

That was my thought - My business is in the same boat, ut I can't see them refusing cash up front. Minumum orders might be the only issue, but if the prices are good enough maybe it's time to diversify your business a little.
Or at least get a few club members together for an order, it looks like you're in VT enso, there must be people around who'd like to place an order too.

Well, I do have my own business already actually.  I thought about that.  Just was not sure if they require minimum purchase amounts or anything like that.  Plus, if they check my finances, they will find my business is not exactly lucrative so far.   :-\

Just so happens there's a thread going on now at Probrewer.com about this same (lack of) customer service issue at St. Pat's!! ;D

Can a leopard change its spots?
I don't know about that, but a tiger can change it's stripes . . .

Hmmm . . . not working, apparently flickr doesn't like it.

I don't know why, but if you have a google account you can use picasweb, it works for me.

Just put [ img ]www.yourpics.blahblah[ /img ] (without the spaces) around the url of the pic.

Or click the img icon and it will put the tags in for you, then paste the url in between them.  Or highlight the url and hit the img button.
