General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Opening home brew store

I'm just trying to expand my current grow shop into homebrew supply shop as well..

Pre-chill, so they should be sanitary.

Heh.  I really considered a throwaway "dry kidding" joke.
I don't want to know what this would taste like. Kids are covered in all sorts of stuff.

Please do not post the same question twice, we promise your post will get read. No need for multiple posts. It's both confusing for those who think they already posted but don't see their post and for you when you have to go back and forth for different answers.

No offense, but are Homebrew shops the next cupcake bakery trend? These threads appear to be getting more common and I am noticing more places carry supplies where they didn't before.

The worst was a BBQ supplies place in Northern California that had no idea what they were selling. I asked the owner why they didn't sell brew-haulers as they are a simple up sell when folks are buying carboys. Never heard of them. They had maybe 4 pounds of hops total spread across maybe 10 varieties. I swear they just bought an LHBS starter kit from BSG.

Low quality stores are going to breed low quality new Brewers.

I was able to get tickets for Thursday, but the Friday tickets were sold out in less than 10 minutes.  Traveling from Indianapolis and already have plane tickets....  :-[

Beer Recipes / Re: Suggestion and Critique Robust Porter recipe

Overall I think it looks pretty good. I would get rid of the carapils and just split the difference between the C40 and C80. I like the brown malt from the first recipe but I also like the munich malt in the second. You may want to consider an English yeast. Porters are personally hard for me because I tend to overcomplicate them...

Looks good.  One question: What's the Carapils in there for?  It's not doing much for you.  If you don't have good reason for it, toss it out.  Consider challenging the other crystal malts in the same manner.  Simplify where possible.  Nothing wrong with your recipe at all, but it could be simplified and get the same results.

Cheers.

I have no personal experience, but all my local homebrew shops use BSG:

All Grain Brewing / Re: Wheat malt and lower efficiency
« Last post by dmtaylor on Today at 10:04:16 AM »
I agree with Keith (major) that it's a size thing.  Crush harder and you'll have no problem at all with efficiency.  Might become a stuck sparge thing after a certain point.  So finding the right crush for your system can be a bit of a balancing act.  Get your own mill (don't trust the LHBS!), play with mill settings, and you'll get there eventually.
