Other Fermentables / Re: Plums in a stout
« on: August 28, 2014, 01:39:25 PM »
Thanks for the tip. I had never thought about the acidity of a fruit vs the strength of its flavor. That sounds like a good way to gauge how much fruit should be used. I might add a small amount of cloves also just to make it interesting.

Other Fermentables / Plums in a stout
« on: August 28, 2014, 11:14:52 AM »
Greetings fellow Homebrewers. I have access to a bunch of plums this year and would like to use them in a stout. How many pounds per gallon should I use to get a noticeable flavor?
  I was thinking of using a Belgian (Trappist / abby) yeast to accentuate the plum flavors. Does anyone have experience using plums in a beer? If so, what was your experience? What style of beer did you use? Any other thoughts?

Cheers,
Brandon

Very sad, indeed. I also grew up watching Mork & Mindy. He also acted in plenty of funny movies. He will be missed.

Thanks! I was hoping you would chime in since you are in that area. I'm not sure how much traveling around we will be doing. But it sounds like there are plenty of places to check out.

My wife & I will be traveling to Eau Claire next Thursday. We already are planning on stopping at Lazy Monk Brewing. Are there any other brewpubs in the area we should check out?

Equipment and Software / Re: Thermowell for thermometer

Thanks. I can save a bit of money if I don't have to buy the thermowells. I think I will just mount the thermometers directly into the kettles.

Equipment and Software / Thermowell for thermometer
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:27:40 PM »
Is it necessary to use a thermowell in a HLT or Mash tun when installing a dial thermometer? My thoughts are that it will help protect the thermometer stem from damage if it gets hit with the mash rake or spoon. Would there be any other reason to use a thermowell?

Cheers,
Brandon

Sounds like something you could buy at Spencer Gifts. Kinda like the pens that shock the unsuspecting victim.

Mike, I'm sorry for your loss. I agree that cancer is a terrible thing. I currently have 2 friends going through treatment. We pray that they make it through and hopefully go into remission.

Don't fear the foam. Totally normal. It won't hurt anything.

I'll have to go there to check out their burgers and have some of your beer. Which beers are you delivering there?

chezteth you went to GNBF and did not stop by and say HI. I am disappointed.

Actually, I did. It was early on and you were rather busy with the other attendees. I mistakenly commented about your brewery being in LaCrosse. We still want to get to your brewery for a visit. We really enjoyed your beers at the GNBF. I'm glad I made a point of stopping by early in the fest. Otherwise I just would have tasted beer. If you know what I mean.  :-)
