Wood/Casks / Food Grade Bladder
« on: February 25, 2010, 11:06:41 PM »
Anyone know of a food grade bladder that you could put into
a 55 gallon Oak Barrel bung hole and then intflate to fill half or
more of the space inside the barrel?  This would allow a person
to utilize a larger barrel which are more readily available....
just wondering..... ???

Hey I was surfin today, and found this site...

I know it is illegal to distill alcohol.... and without talking politics,
I found this site to be of great interest and anyone concerned
with fuesels and stuff might learn a bit by some reading.... ;)

You will have to watch the posts but this appears to be a
viable source for wood barrels....I am still looking for
the 13 gallon(50 liter) size in French Oak with red wine/burgundy
 suitable for beer....

Commercial Beer Reviews / It's not
« on: January 28, 2010, 11:24:29 AM »
Even beer, BUT it is worthy of honorable mention because when
you find something good you might wanna tell people about it
and share the goodness...

Well, I got a bottle of Meukow VS Black Cognac....and I gotta say
This stuff is NICE.

Aroma of vanilla and nice oily ring around the periphery of the snifter...
taste of Oak notes smooth on the palate warm alcohol glow...
just really NICE....wish I could afford the Napoleon :'(

Here it tiz going into the fermenter

Here tiz going into secondary and tasted good at this early point...

It is really walking the line between the two styles.
Anyway it was a great weekend for  the beer hobby at my house.

Got to get her down to lager pitch temps and put it on that nice FRESH pils yeastcake
that is just waiting and ready (racked the pils to a keg today).

General Homebrew Discussion / I would like to discuss Beer Filtration
« on: January 16, 2010, 11:34:56 AM »
I am considering starting to filter my beer.  I have seen several
discussions on the correct and best way to accomplish this task.
IMO, the beer I make  may be worthy of filtration!
So, do I use a plate or a cannister style device?
After I decide on that, what size filter is best to be utilizing to
accomplish diamond brite beer AT AN AFFORDABLE level?

I am set up for Keg methods and with the additon of a few
fittings would be good to go on this,

I think I would like to filter at 1 micron absolute, and be able to
reuse, wash my filter media...can anyone point to a source and
style of filter for this?

Anyone here filter their beers??

All Things Food / Samuel Adams Boston Lager GLASSES
« on: December 27, 2009, 01:13:00 PM »
I just recieved a gift of these glasses, a 4 set. " Take Pride in your Beer" copy right mark on the silkscreened back of the
glass and "Samuel Adams Boston Lager " screened on the front.
The booklet says " The bead inside the rim creates turbulence to release flavor and aroma as beer enters the mouth."
"Narrowing the glass at the top retains the hop aroma and sustains the head."
"Rounded shape collects aromas"
The laser etching on bottom creates bubbles for constant aroma release."
"The outward lip delivers beer to the front of the tongue where the sweetness (malt) is tasted."
" Thinner walls and rounded shape maintain proper beer temperature longer."

I got a set for christmas and I must say, my beer never tasted or smelled better!

They are the Shiz to clean...bottom is so narrow ya cannot reach in to the bottom.
