Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Wyeast Old Ale Blend
« on: November 16, 2010, 07:54:47 PM »
I used this in an old ale that I made about a year and a half ago.  It really is very good.  Just a bit of sour but definitely not too much.  It is the only old ale Ive made so I wish I would have pitched something a little more neutral in one of the fermenters so that I would be able to compare between the two.

About a 10 second spray down with the hose and everything is as clean as a shop vac needs to be

My mash tun is a keg.  It gets damn heavy when it is full of grain not to mention pretty hot.  I could tip it but I have to first unhook all of the plumbing and then try really hard not to spill wet grain all over my garage or myself.  I used to scoop it but it takes forever and doesnt do nearly as good of a job.  My shop vac is right there so it isnt inconvenient to get it out.  To be honest this works wonderful for my set up but when I was using a cooler I never considered it because it was lighter and more maneuverable.  Another thing is that when I uhook everything I really don't want a bunch of spent grains or especially used hops sprayed out onto my lawn.

It is always hard to brew and host at the same time.  Big Brew days are the worst for me as there is usually a crowd and lots of questions not to mention glasses to fill.

I use a shop vac to clean out my sabco MT and boil kettle everytime and it works great.  Sometimes I need to add a little water to the grains.  I'll never go back to scooping.

I make my own wine from grapes that I grow in the backyard and was curious.  If I harvested my grapes this year and bottled my wine next year is it considered a 2010 wine or 2011?  Just getting ready to make labels and figured I would try and find an answer to this.  I usually would consider it 2010 wine or whatever year I harvested and began the fermentation but Im not entirely sure.
Thanks for the help guys.

1) Most people don't like to go more than two weeks due to worries of vegetal flavors.  I've gone 17 days and not had a problem but am afraid of pushing it any further.
2) Not at all

Maybe a a bad poppet?

Thats been my problem lately.  I pull off the ball lock and get quite the spray of beer in the face.  :'(  The poppet seems to get pushed down and to the side just a bit allowing pressure or beer to escape.  Now out of habit I vent the keg before removing the ball lock.
