Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Unibroue

it's only around until 10/1.  It was part of the Belgian Summer release. Oct. 1 the fall strains come out.
Thanks! When I saw it in my email I had assumed that it was a new release. Placing that order now...

I just cut the ad for the 4th q PCs, so it was on my mind.  BTW, for lager makers, they're bringing back the Staropramen yeast, which I really like

Equipment and Software / Brunwater post boil volume question
« Last post by Slackjawls on September 22, 2018, 06:35:09 PM »
One of the fields in the water adjustment sheet in Brun water v5.4 asks for total batch volume or post boil volume.   Just curious if I should enter the pre-chilling volume or volume after chilling.

Thanks

Another recent batch of wings:

Another day, another flavor experiment. This experiment's flavor: Atomic City Caribe sauce.

Since this experiment was a last-minute decision, I had about an hour to let the wings dry in the fridge before baking, vs. the normal 24 hours. Skin turned out slightly less crispy (no surprise), but very much on par when I bake wings that were marinaded overnight, vs. left to air-dry. Quite tasty.

Prepped the wings as normal; seasoned w/ Penzey's adobo seasoning. Usual oven-cooking method: 1 hour @ 400° on a stainless cooling rack, flipped halfway thru. Once cooked, basted both sides of the wings w/ Caribe, back into the oven for ~7 more min to let the sauce set up.

Showing my work:



Verdict: Tasty, AF.

Doing a short survey as part of an upcoming Zymurgy article on competition Best of Show (BOS) round judging. If you've participated in or organized a BOS panel previously, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to fill out a quick survey:

Beer Recipes / Re: Low Alcohol Beer Ideas?
« Last post by Robert on September 22, 2018, 05:10:22 PM »
It was a few years spent in England (Oxford and London) in the late 80s, experiencing the incredible flavors of best bitters lower in alcohol than even the industrial American lagers of the day, that really established my sense of what "good beer" is.  That's also when I started brewing, knowing that was the only way I'd get something of that nature when I moved back Stateside.  I generally don't brew quite that low, usually 5.0-5.5%, but I've never had a taste for the "big" beers that have dominated over here.  If I brew a little stronger than a typical bitter, or even German draught Helles (another early influence on me,) it's because I try to drink several fewer pints in a session than back in those days.  Quality over quantity.   Which some use to justify those very big beers...

Pretty much so. At least under 5.5 usually.  My heart just can't take strong beer, or very much beer at all.

But you'd rather drink stronger beer for the extra flavour?

In general, yes, that seems to be true.  I do find stronger beers more flavorful and easier to brew.  I would usually prefer to drink less of a stronger beer than more of a weaker one.
