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.
Thanks,
Dave

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!

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.

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

Maybe they're just trying to limit the ammount of entrants, "shotgunning" is the term?  I wouldn't say people are "ribbon whores", I f I had a good beer that I wanted judged, I MIGHT put it it in if there weren't any other local homebrew comps around.  I wouldn't do more than 1 though.  I also avoid mailing entries, that's why the local thing would matter to me.

So, I'll be the dumb one... What's Amaranth?

Not that I know how in the heck to make it, but HSF Polska Kielbasa is what dreams are made of.
