Pimp My System / Rollera

Well, I put this over in the wood/cask section because it
also fits there. But I thought it could go here as well because
It is something I made that works actually quite well.
Gives new meaning to the lyrics "Roll out the barrels"

Tall enough to rack in to corney kegs, and tall enough to be a pain to
get fresh beer back into...

I'll just add that IF it does get funky buy a 5 gallon carboy
Rack the beer to that
Put it in the basement/broom closet for a year
Pull a sample and taste it

Worst case, you have an extra carboy
Best case, you have a great "wild" beer
+1 so true, don't be too hasty to join your beer with the ocean

Galvanized = Zinc
Zinc is dissolved by acid and excessive Zinc is toxic. I wouldn't risk it.
Wikipedia has a pretty good write up. The toxicity part is about 2/3 of the way down.

Here we go again....ingesting toxic ETOH....AND toxic Zinc! :P

If I had my columbus hops, I would do the avery Hog Heaven clone But
Instead I am taking the wkend off and going to the jade patch to look for rocks.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What are your house styles?

I had not thought of this, geeze if I could only make the circuits to everyone's "house"
what a smorgasbord of beer!

If you were to come to my house most likely you would find a Saison lurking around
AND a Stout / Dark of some type. Soon you will be able to tip an oaked rochefort fairly
regularly here as I have to keep that oak solera going.  Coming up is a dry hopped American
strong lager AND a Maibock because it is almost Mai....Cheers!

We have started to make our own soad pop as well and so there is some non-al around too.

Upcoming events are going to be an attempt at an Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine style.

geeze, so many different beers, so little liver..... :-\

I just saw this thread. Since I keg my beer, I dry hopped for the first time a little while back.
I took a different approach, I put the dry hop ball and hops in a sanatized keg with a lil distilled water
enough to cover the hop ball.....Then since the beer is a delicate pilsner and I don't want any O2 or light
problems, I carbonated the water/hop keg with CO2  after that got carbed, I then transferred keg to keg
the beer into the water+hop Keg.  I have tasted one sample pull from this keg, and it seems nice so far.
It is still lagering for a couple more weeks.

While I may do a little sumpin sumpin with a saison now and again I won't be brewing any more dubbels tripels or abbeys.

That's the saddest thing I've ever heard. :o

Eh? Pretty sad and downright questionable.

Interesting. I have heard or read that some brewers recommend using nonpitted cherries. Perhaps related?
How much do you plan to use?
I ordered 1/2 pound and will taste it when it arrives. that will give me a better idea.
Tom, we have a discussion going here about this as well...

Might deserve a heading all on it's own, but
I was given the insight to try a spice called
Mahlab, which is the heart of a cherry pit.
Ste.Lucie Cherry I plan on adding some of this
when I sour and cherry the beer that I am currently working on.

It has proposedly the flavor of almond and cherry.
to me that is a good combination.

I just got 1/2 # of Mahlab shipped to my addy for $20.00 thought that was a fair price.
Sounds like such a delicious addition....almond....cherry....mmmmmmm....going in the solera.
