Beer Travel / Re: Returning home with beer when traveling?
« on: November 12, 2009, 04:11:59 PM »
Depending on who you fly with. Southwest is still free to check baggage.

I don't remember where, but I read somewhere that Orval is bottled around 1.008 and ferments down to as much as (I think) 1.004 or so. In my experience and again from what I've read brett won't superattenuate without additional bacteria in the mix. Don't exactly remember the science behind it, but the only beers I've gotten down to 1.000 have had mixed bacteria cultures - not just a secondary ferment with brettanomyces.

Same boat as Fred. I always check some beer and have yet to have any break. Just make sure and pack it well and don't exceed the 50lb weight limit on your bag.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg, bottle or both?
« on: November 12, 2009, 10:57:17 AM »
I'm about 80/20 kegging to bottling. Most of my funky/big beers get the bottle, whereas "normal" stuff goes into the kegs.

Ingredients / Re: Where do you buy your ingredients from?
« on: November 12, 2009, 09:24:16 AM »
LHBS more often than not. Place is just too rad to not patronize. Prices are decent, selection is damn good, and hell, I get to drink while I'm there.

All Grain Brewing / Re: spent grains
« on: November 12, 2009, 09:17:26 AM »
Not a lot I can do living in the city and all. So most of it just goes in the garbage. Although I do make spent grain bread from time to time, of course that doesn't use up too much of it.  ;)

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: How many carboys do you own?
« on: November 12, 2009, 09:13:18 AM »
Let see, going off memory I can think of:

3x 6.5-gallon
1x 6 gallon
5-6x 5-gallon (I think most of you can guess what these are filled with)
And a handful of buckets and lots of kegs.

Brewed Denny's BVIP today and brewing a funky single later this week sometime. Wanted to knock out a couple batches before I head up to the PNW.  ;D

Oh, there is a shocker  :P
What can I say? I like the stank.  :D

Dude, I gots pellicle in my bedroom  ;D
Basement is gonna be too cold

"Honey, ANOTHER carboy in the bedroom?"

Hey, at least this one isnt bubbling, got a table leg shoved in the neck
Rad dude. You should see my attic. It's like a pellicle farm up there.

Blatz PM'd me over at NB. I've been kinda outta the loop lately so I hand't made it over to the hip new hangout yet.

I have made several funky beers that started with a clean sacch strain. While it might not be what you are going for, it certainly shouldn't be a big deal. I agree with Fred though in that you should instruct him to mash high so the brett has some dextrins to chew on.
