Yeast and Fermentation / Re: S23 Lager Yeast from Fermentis
« on: February 24, 2010, 10:47:44 PM »
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?

I know a guy that distilled some beer that was hit with the dreaded acetobactor.  I should ask him how that turned out.   ;)
I wonder if he managed to make a good "Save" on his labor?

If you go into production of those DIY attic antenna, send me a PM
cause I have all the stuff to make one, but am just too lazy.
I got a chili cook off coming up, wish me luck. Feel free to contact
me if Whyomin ever calls you to visit.

I've heard of people using beet juice for some halloween beers to make them blood red, but I have never tried that one.
My beet wine is red and I suppose this would definately yield a red color. Starchy enough to
mash after you gelatinize them too I'll wager.

Ingredients / Re: rice hulls
« on: February 24, 2010, 07:59:41 AM »
I use rice hulls regularly in my brewing.  I put about an inch thick layer
over the braid in the tun. I add hot water to the tun to Preheat the critter.
Then I swish the hulls and hot water around to wash the hulls...Yes,
the rice hulls are dirty as you will see.  Then I just open the drain on
the tun after the preheating and drain the dirty water out. Couple of times
of seeing the run off from them, no way do I want that in my beer.

The Pub / Re: Why is Dead Guy Ale so expensive?
« on: February 23, 2010, 10:55:37 PM »
I'm a cheapskate, so I generally buy these beers once...if I really like them, $15 bucks will almost buy enough raw materials to do a whole batch of a clone for most beers!  There are a few beers, and a few styles, that I still buy commercially from time to time.  But 15 bucks for a sixer, I don't pay that much for my yearly purchase of Bigfoot!  Speaking of...is that out?  I better not have missed it this year!
I still got a couple bottles of 2009 bigfoot. 8)

Nic,
There are ways to tint your white likker...some caramelized sugar perhaps...
Ageing it in small barrels increases wood / liquid contact...you could
take some acceptable shortcuts I am certain...  It is just the legal stumbling
block I keep coming up against

infected batch of beer....you could do somethin besides dump it to the ocean...
