Beer Travel / Avery Brewery Sourfest pics
« on: March 01, 2010, 09:17:21 AM »
Hey, I traveled 4 hours for I guess it counts.

What a gig! Well worth the drive. Met MikeyPedersen a co-member here.
So many beers, not enough time to sample even a good portion of them.
You got 20 beer tickets good for a 2 oz pour each ticket....I did not even
get through all 20 of mine...let alone the handful someone that was leaving
gave me....

Anyhow here is Avery's new beer engine / bar back you see it when you walk in the door

Here is the cooler where they store brewery release only beers etc.

Blow off from a fermenter outdoors. Smelled like Hog Heaven to me

Shot of the crowd in the tasting lineup

Couple guys I was drinking beer with

My 2 Favorites were Saison De Lente from "The Bruery" and Duck Duck Gooze from "The Lost Abbey"
followed closely by Cerise Casse from "Cambridge Brewing" and last but NOT least
Saison Brett by "Boulevard Brewing"....LOL I already lost count so many good brews!

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.... ;)

I know these guys are just making fuel for the family car!

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.

Well she is by the numbers spot on....maybe a little dark but I can handle it...

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??
