Beer Travel / Avery Brewery Sourfest pics
« on: March 01, 2010, 04:17:21 PM »
Hey, I traveled 4 hours for this...so 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.

Part of one of their barrel rooms

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 26, 2010, 06:06:41 AM »
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..... ???

Sweet....then figger out how to attach a reflux colum to your keg boiler kettle...
you are set for a 5 gallon run off....  ;)

Of course, you will want to keep it up at 100% realm so you can put it in
the GAS TANK of the family stationwagon.

Diluting it with water.....makes bad things happen to the engine.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: S23 Lager Yeast from Fermentis

Funny this post came up as I just tapped that keg today.
It still tastes of the fruitiness but it is not intolerable.
Drinkable but does have an aftertaste .....If I were giving
someone a taste of my beers for their 1st time, this would
NOT be the beer I would let them try....for fear they might judge
my work harshly. Some may like this flavor however.....

Kaiser,
Since Zoigl beer is kind of an old tradition I suppose it is out of topic range
for the OP's subject. I do not want to stray from the subject, but had to ask.
I have never tried Zoigl beer and wondered how it
compares to the Modern brewereys discussed here.  Have you ever
hosted the Zoigl?
