General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Competition letdown
« on: May 19, 2011, 01:18:11 AM »
I am my own (no mercy) judge. My "clientel" confirms what I already know. I don't have to prove it by sparring with others. But, to each his own.

Don't really care. I feel I have a good palate and I know if something is wrong. If I don't know how to fix it, I come here.

Isn't it 'Ik bin belg' ?

Nope. Not in Flemish, anyway.

Congrats to the expat!

So will you retain dual citizenship?

Thanks! Yep, I get dual citizenship. I can go to Cuba!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing Basics Video for Download?
« on: May 03, 2011, 01:01:46 AM »
I'm testing out video server that the school I work for recently purchased. It comes pre-loaded with a bunch of educational videos, but you can also upload your own. There's already a "wine and spirits" category under "hobbies" and I thought it would be cool to add a brewing video. The problem is, everything I can find is streamed. Does anybody know where I can find a good video on brewing basics that can be fully downloaded?

Got the letter yesterday that I've been granted Belgian nationality. Pretty freakin' cool, huh? Toer de Geuze last weekend with friends (including philliplamb), Bin Laden distinguished and now this. What's next? Win the lottery?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: High final gravity - bottle or not?

HA! The bottle I cracked yesterday, after 2 weeks, was undercarbonated. Tasted pretty good, though.

Mash was 68 C for 1.25 hours.

A Flemish red is my style of choice with Thai food, especially if shrimp is involved.

I think it's fine. I just got home after being gone for a week (2 weeks in the bottles) and all the bottles are in tact. I'll crack one open later tonight (though I'm being told it's margarita night) or tomorrow.

That's awesome! I don't go into the clubs section very often, so I almost missed it. Looking forward to the report.

Beer Travel / Re: Boulder

The tempeh rueben at Southern Sun rocks! Oh, the beer's not too bad either, especially if you stick to the nitros. Besides the Chop House, anywhere is good for vegetarians.

Is Juanitas closed yet? I'm drooling thinking about their veggie tamales.

Spend more than a night or two. I lived there 6 years and still miss it.

Rubber tub with a lid isn't a bad idea. I think I have one that will work.

I'm not overly worried, since it's not the first time I've been off by about the same amount in my FG. Previously I let the fermentation go a lot longer. I'm beginning to think maybe there's a problem with my hydrometer (or its reader).
