General Homebrew Discussion / Re: $17.00 an entry??
« on: December 16, 2010, 11:37:23 PM »
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.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Another one biting the bullet

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.

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.

Check out  They have a free beer calculator called Beer Calculus.  I'm not a big fan, but it's free, and everyone's recipes can be shared.

No, New Mexico is south of me, but I leave it alone.  Utah, Nebrasksa and Wyoming are the source of my jokes.

Thanks guys, I think I frustrate myself when I think of all of the malt varieties out there...

All Grain Brewing / Re: Your best "second runnings" beer?
« on: November 25, 2010, 10:54:32 PM »
I've done a lot of second runnings beers, and one thing I do almost every time now, is add malt extract.  I know it might seem like defeating the purpose of a second runnings beer, but it really makes the second beer a winner.  I made a Belgian strong Golden, and added 4# of Wheat Malt extract to the second beer.  It really confuses people when I tell them that  made a wheat beer from the second runnings of a no-wheat mash!  I then added some fresh cherries and some mint to it... It turned out awesome.

What is a good sustitue for Amber Malt?  My homebrew store never has it, but I like the character it gives.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Growing up an alien wild yeast from scratch
« on: November 25, 2010, 10:45:44 PM »
I love your experiment!  It's a cool attitude that you have toward brewing.  My 2 favorite parts of the whole scenario were:
1) Something spontaneously fermented in your fridge, and your first instinct was to drink it  ;D  Only a homebrewer...
2)  I like how the "vomit" character of your wild yeast only seemd like a minor setback... which paid off 
Awesome job!

I'm sure you'll get responses from people who've actually read the book, but I've heard nothing but good things.

The Pub / Re: Anyone Watch 'Brew Masters' Last Night?
« on: November 24, 2010, 12:03:38 PM »
It was a great show, very entertaining.  I do love the fact that people will complain about anything though.  We (beer-lovers) finally have a show that focuses on craft beer, and people try to slam it for being a DFH infomercial  ???
I think DFH does some very cool exciting stuff, and a show about it sure beats the heck out of anything else on TV.  Really, if there was a show about 1 brewery in America, I'd think DFH would make the most interesting one.

Got it.
