Nice score Frank.  We're still in the hospital so I'm living vicariously.  All I get to do is stare at the pictures everyone is posting of beer foam overflowing their pint glass, crystal clear lagers and all manner of deliciousness!

Should I sanitize the leaves with star san?  Or just rinse off with filtered water first?
I have gotten away with just cleaning herbs etc. My feeling is that there is enough alcohol at this point and aromatic herbs don't tend to be hospitable to bad microflora but I'm interested in what others have to say. Its an excellent question.

Denny,
I see you changed your malt bill on your most recent go around on a dunkel. Dropped the pils and caramunich. Which one did you prefer?  Which was a more authentic dunkel, if you recall?  Thx!

Out in the field for work today, I stopped at my favorite grocery store for beer. Jungle Jim's International Market has an awesome selection of beer from around the world and across the country, all organized by place of origin.
While there, I picked up the following:
Six pack of Troegg's Perpetual IPA
Six pack of Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter
Four pack of Great Lakes ChillWave DIPA
Six pack of Ballast Point Sculpin
2 bombers of Rogue Sriracha Stout (mainly for SWMBO)
Cant wait to try them all out, I will post back the thoughts of my fairly untrained palate.
Have a great weekend everyone
Your reminding me its about time for us to make a pilgrimage to Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge Ma. Its the largest package store in New England. Its the size of a large supermarket. The space cereal would take up is whiskey and the beer section is bigger than most entire package stores. They do a ton of business, there are always license plates from 3 different states in the parking lot, so they move through their inventory quickly. The beer area isn't inside a cooler but they do seem to have the area kept as cool as they can, I would say about 50.

IMO, it's tough to find lower ABV IPA's that fit what I'm looking for.
Yes. I'm an All Day IPA hater because I think the high hops with absolutely no malt flavor is just awful. For me the name is ironic because despite wanting to like it I just didn't want a second.

So, what is the ideal pH of water to store yeast. I am just getting into harvesting for a YEAST that I will be using 4~5 times per year. I've watched video upon video about harvesting and no one mentions this. I just quickly browsed the section on this i the book entitled "Yeast" (one of the 4 part series entitled Yeast, Water, Malt, Hops) and they didn't mention it in that 'section'. Again, I didn't go into great depth in the book, so I am sure that it is referenced in there somewhere.

The real answer is that it doesn't matter becasue you shouldn't store yeast under water.

I would also say if you enter it in 23 with the special part of it being 'dry hopped' that you make sure if you list the types of hops you can perceive those types of hops.
