Kegging and Bottling / Re: Another one biting the bullet
« on: December 18, 2010, 02:19:17 AM »
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.

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

Check out Hopville.com  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.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Your best "second runnings" beer?
« on: November 26, 2010, 05:54:32 AM »
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.

All Grain Brewing / Amber Malt

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 26, 2010, 05:45:44 AM »
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!
