Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Lager yeast came from Patagonia

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing. It's amazing how something like yeast can travel so far.

I've done that.  Left the kegs in the freezer but adjusted the temp up to 48 or so to ferment lagers.  No issues. I put some beer in a growler and into the fridge if I wanted it colder but I didn't have a problem with my beers at 48F to drink either. 

Then you can cool them all back down when you cold crash the yeast.

+1  I've done this a few times and it seems to work well

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Consensus while judging?
« on: April 01, 2014, 04:00:31 PM »
I judged an onion stout (not a BJCP comp) that tasted like rotten onions. Apparently the brewer sautéed onions in butter then added it to his beer. I tried my best to look past the rotten onion flavor & aroma and as far as I could tell the base beer was OK. As was said before... Some things should not be used in beer.

Ingredients / Re: Favorite Bittering hop for AIPA

I really like warrior for bittering an American IPA. I prefer the smooth, clean bitterness it adds.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Miller Fortune

A Co-worker recently asked me if I had tried Miller fortune. I stated I had not but I may try it on the near future. Although, I've had Steele Reserve and can't stand the stuff.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Drinking Only Homebrews

I enjoy my homebrew by and large, but I've always got my eagle eye on the lookout for any new commercial brands. We are not only amidst a craft beer renaissance of sorts, but also enjoying one of the best times to be beer drinker in the history of mankind, there are plenty of new brands out there to try, and I'm willing to taste any of them once.

Ingredients / Re: Which coffee for a coffee/breakfast stout
« on: March 03, 2014, 10:27:58 AM »
+1000 to using the freshest beans possible. I prefer African coffees so that is what I use. Use the varietal you prefer. I use the cold press / toddy method with good results.

JP's brewing in Stevens point, WI has a blonde stout. It is rather sweet with the flavor of white chocolate. Not quite what I would think of as a stout but interesting none the less.

The Pub / Re: Andoid phone question

Even if the phone supports tethering your tracfone service might not allow it. I have Net10 and it is written in the terms of service that the consumer is not allowed to tether.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Adding java to a stout

I have picked up green bell pepper / vegetal notes in some coffee beers. I agree it could be the bean variety. It could also be from using cheap or stale coffee.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Carboy Disaster
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:58:01 AM »
I'm glad you're OK. I had a similar incident last summer. The only difference was the carboy I was moving was empty and fell on a full carboy. It occurred in the garage so cleanup wasn't terrible. I have since started using more buckets and better bottles for primary.

Beersmith has some addons for the desktop version that include different maltsters. I know Briess is in there.

I usually love American IPA. But, last year I got burned out after judging several AIPA. Ever since then I have enjoyed the malty styles much more. Although I am getting the itch to brew a IIPA.
