General Homebrew Discussion / Re: adding sugar...
« on: February 16, 2010, 08:37:01 AM »
I will set my additions out on a table with my timer and brew utensils.
Bittering hops in a bowl
Aroma hops in a Different bowl
Sugars one more bowl
Belgian spices if brewing that style...in another bowl...
final additions like whirlfloc and nutrients in another little shotglass
Then I just go down the line up and usually don't forget anything

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: S23 Lager Yeast from Fermentis

The longer this sits in my garage in the Keg, the nicer it gets.
Tutti Fruti is not apparent at this point. Some Haze but
from day to day this too seems to be going bye bye...
Kind of a roller coaster ride with this yeast but in the end...not too shabby.

I cried too. At my first sip. Then I threw up in my mouth a little.

Curse my pin locks with no relief valves! Guess I could always put a lock on the gas post.
Yep just do this....as the liquid fills the keg, the gas will exit the lock...

All Things Food / Re: What kind of beer would you serve with BBQ Chicken?
« on: February 13, 2010, 12:43:22 PM »
I'm sipping my Sour Saison, and I gotta say, this would go great with
some kind of BBQ chicken! It is in the line of Orval...and a lil Roselare...
and of course Saison fermented with WY3726 which is a tart yeast.

So I suppose sweet bbq chicken would be a contrast with the sourness
of this beer....but not an unwelcomed contrast.

Hi Jeff,

The best I've made though uses Young's Double Chocolate Stout and vanilla ice cream; DELICIOUS!!!!!

Cheers,
    Janis    ;D
I drank my Young's and envisioned this lovely combo....Now, I will have to try it...never had the courage
to until this juncture  ;D

I Really like the sterile siphon idea. In fact, I used to do the same thing with and orange cap and racking cane. But, now I pretty much ferment in buckets. Any thoughts on a way to start a siphone the same way, but in a bucket?

Weaze, I got a short chunk of 5/16 tubing and a hose clamp....clamped the tubing to
a Liquid OUT keg connector....the other end of this hose gets slid onto the bucket's valve...
I fill the keg with co2 then pull the relief valve open and then open the bucket valve,
beer just runs down the long ss tube to the bottom of the keg....Nice.

6 lbs M.O.
.5 Wheat
.5 Pale Choc
.18 Roast Barley
.25 Blk Patent
.25 Carafoam

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: What to expect from cultured dregs of Orval?
« on: February 11, 2010, 08:17:05 AM »
Don't make me tell a lie.  IMO the short answer is NO, because
sugar is not the only vector of metabolism present in a brettanomyces
cycle, there is also bacteria at work and the food chain is not the same
for them.  I have not personally experimented with bret enough to
assertively answer your question....someone else may be better qualified.
