General Homebrew Discussion / Re: pellet hops and whole hops
« on: February 01, 2010, 12:01:20 PM »
I use both whole and pellet.  I agree with Denny for Continental hops - I prefer pellets for freshness.  Not saying you can't get good leaf hops that are Continental.  Recently I have been buying more pellet hops though.  Easier storage and very easy to use on my system.  Leaf hops also work on my system quite well.

I second what Denny said.  Granted, I have only been to one here in Denver (since it was local for me).  It was a great time.  The presentations are great and informative.  I, like Denny had a blast at Club night.  By far the best event of the conference.  Amazing homebrew everywhere at Club night.

I would agree with fruit beers.  I make an apricot wheat for some women folk, but I don't really care for it.  Also not a big wheat beer fan.  Don't care for Dopplebock much or sour beers.  Some sour beers I enjoy, but not enough to ever brew 5 gallons or even 3 gallons.

Every time I change a keg, I clean the line and the faucet.

Dogs are awesome. 

Nuclear looks like a great friend.

Toby and Logan have really blue eyes and Kayla has one brown and one blue eye.  They are good dogs and very lovable.

I like Maker's Mark and Knob Creek.

I drank lots of Jim Beam in college (South Carolina).  Haven't really tried any new ones lately, but there is lots out there to try!

Great pics of the dogs.  I have 3 Huskies, all rescues.


Toby - the alpha and leader of the pack

Logan - the young, energetic spaz

Niko - RIP buddy. Died of a brain tumor over 2 years ago

Lots of great benefits from the AHA.  Just from the legality standpoint, the AHA rocks.  They do so much for the brewing community nationwide.

Very subjective.  Light American lagers = not one of my favorite styles.  I am also not a big fan of sour beers, doppelbocks or wheat beers.  Now, I have had examples of all of these beers that I enjoyed and were good, but I would not seek them out, order them in bar or brew them often.  I have brewed some wheat beers, mostly for other people though.

It's really what tastes good to you.  I will agree that it bums me out to have people refuse to drink anything but fizzy, yellow beer.  I am not trying to change their drinking habits, just trying to get them to sample another type of beer.  I don't pressure anyone into drinking my homebrew, but when we have a party, I don't go out and buy BMC beer for people either.  Thankfully most people I have met in CO enjoy craft beer.

I agree it depends on your taste.  Most big commercial beers like Bud are very well made.  Personally, I would take a Bud over a Miller any day.  Don't really care for Miller products at all.  Coors is ok to me, but not great.  All these commercial beers have very little beer flavor to me.  I don't diss them as a beer snob, but rather I choose not to drink them because for me, they are flavorless empty beer calories.  Also, they are not that much cheaper these days than craft beer.  I see Bud in most stores in CO for $5-6 a six pack unless it's on special.  As for light beer, I don't care for any of it.  Just don't like them - BL, CL, ML, Sam Adams Light, etc. 

I would never call someone out for drinking what they like.  If you like it, drink it.

Never 2 at once, but I have done 2 batches in one day.  Once the first one is boiling, I mash in for the second batch and go from there.  Only done it a few times.

Going to be racking a Munich Dunkel and then putting a Schwarzbier on the yeast in the next week.
