General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Steeping Grains

I would always put the grains in right away, let them steep while the water was heating up and pull them out just before it starts to boil. I did that for years and made some damn good extract brews.

I brewed a strong dark mild. Sort of a cross between an English dark mild and a schwartzbier.

Oh and bring Brasserie de la Seine. That stuff is great. Have you tried their "Brussels People's Ale?"

I've been meaning to correct myself on this. Of course you meant Zinnebir. I knew that. And yeah, also damn good.

I was having such a nice day. Why did you do that?   ???

Aw, c'mon. You must not have heard their rendition of Number of the Beast:

Nope, you're not alone. The Brits (and the Germans in Dusseldorf) do a great job of packing a lot of flavor into a low ABV beer.

I (and others) greatly enjoyed the mock pilsner I made with Wyeast California Lager 2112, fermented in the very low 60's.

I believe that would be considered a "Steam Beer".

Not necessarily.  The grainbill is crucial in defining a steam beer also, not just the yeast. 

Yup. I love that yeast and have used it for a few very un-steam beers. For the pils (the recipe is around here somewhere), I used mostly pilsner malt an saaz hops. If I had to enter it in a competition, I might have called it a kolsch, but I called it a pilsner. j

Says the French guy (who may or may not look like Mike Ditka).

Are there vegetarian tacos?

Yep. Instead of meat, use lard-free refried beans. That's a meal in our house at least once a week.

Hmm... I can think of a couple things:
I'm coming upon a year of having a decent job that I enjoy after being without for about 2.5 years.

I live in Belgium.
