I tried to warn you  :D
But Coconuts in Evergreen is probably your best bet next time, it's not very far off of I-70.

Caution:  Never drill anywhere into a Sears chest freezer. 

Please Explain... We just bought a Kenmore chest Freezer for food (of all things) and I would eventually like to turn it into a kegging system.  What makes it a "no-drill" freezer?

Tipsy's is overpriced (despite their "new lower prices" sign).  If you're headed up I-70, Coconuts in Evergreen is pretty good.  If you want to take the time, circle around C-470 to Davidson's or Lukas Liquors.

I ordered a sack of the Briess and the Crisp MO yesterday.  From what I am reading here, I'm going to grab some Rahr 2-row to do a side by side with the Briess to see how I like it. 

You should post if you get the order with no problems... sorry to ask you to be the guinea pig!

Yeah, that's where I always look first, to no avail.

I'm jealous at you guys who think that Malt is overpriced.  MY LHBS sells 50# sacks of Rahr 2-row for almost $70.  Has anyone ordered from this site yet?

Yeast and Fermentation / WLP 006, Wyeast version?
« on: January 08, 2011, 11:56:33 PM »
Hello all, I've done some research, but haven't found anything, is there a Wyeast version of the White Labs' "Bedford ale yeast"?  It's from Charles Wells, if that helps.

Belgian yeasts can be funny.  I'd give it two weeks before I really evaluated it.

If I could keep doing what I'm doing production wise, 1 batch a month and style-wise: 1 yeast strain for 4 consecutive batches per vial, I'll be happy.
I always like to try styles I've failed at previously.  Last year: finally got that ESB right!  This year: Saison.
Also, I might try a brett beer, and I'd like to get a 40 in a comp.
While I'm at it, I'd like my club, The Greater Denver Yeast Infection to do more club activities.
OK, no more goals.

I've used the Bier de Garde yeast.  It had a very unique flavor profile.  It's been a couple years, so I can't give better specifics.  My Bier de Garde turned out great though!

Thanks Denny!  It helps me plan my brewing schedule :)  I'm going IPA's and pale Ale's soon, so I won't be using the private collection this time!

Does anyone know what the newest Wyeast private collection will be?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Another one biting the bullet
« on: December 17, 2010, 07:19:17 PM »
Congrats, I know if I hadn't started kegging almost right away I would have given up on brewing long ago.  What's your plan for the fridge?
You'd be surprised, I've brewed 94 batches over 8 years, and I've bottled every one.

I'm more impressed that you know exactly how many batches you have made. Congrats on the addition.
Thanks!  Yeah, I've been writing down every single batch since day 1.  I probably wouldn't bottle if I brewed 10 gallons.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: $17.00 an entry??
« on: December 17, 2010, 07:15:33 PM »
A comp in Brooklyn, NY mentioned in the new issue of BYO requires $17.00 per entry.  Isn't that a bit steep??  Thos most I've ever seen is $7.00 per entry.

Not snarky at all, NYC costs are out of control... That's why I live in Colorado
