kegging a porter and brewing an american amber ale - still deciding on cascade or columbus for the flameout hops - might have to flip a coin.

Paul...I just realized you changed your name...What's up with that?

Nothing brewing again this weekend.  Will be getting some of the BVIP into bottles for holiday giveaways and sampling the ESB, which is the last of the holiday six pack beer to be bottled.  Also kicking off a starter for a CAP next weekend.

Even if I don't get around to brewing a lager this weekend, I will be cleaning kegs and moving beer from lagering/conditioning kegs into fresh ones.  I am bring 5 kegs of homebrew to the company open house next Thursday, and I'd like to minimize the amount of yeast that comes with the beer to the office.  Got Rochefort 8 clone, bo-pils, and Scottish ale all carbed and ready to go, black IPA is carbing, and hefe is finishing in the primary today or tomorrow.

Probably keg my None More Black IPA on Sunday, but gotta clear out one of my taps before I can do that, preferably.  That shouldn't be a problem as there's not much left of it.  I had a sample of it and it's kinda bitter.  I accidently added 2 oz of fwh instead of 3/4 of an ounce so I had to adjust the rest of my hop schedule so it wouldn't be bitter as sh!t.  But apparently that didn't work.  It was a blend of Simcoe, Chinook, and Cascade.  
I also added debittered black at the end of the mash before taking first runnings.  Would the bitterness of debittered black malt come out more if I ground it to a powder?

I would think so. small particles = more surface area = more extraction of bitterness
Damn, might just have to give it some time to mellow out.  That was stupid of me.  Live and learn...

Oh weird, I just noticed that.  What's the deal, Paul?

Just because I get the day off.  Work has been rough over the last couple of months, it will be nice to get a breather.

yeah - wasn't intentional.  I was just testing out the profile feature to change how your name appears on the forum to see what would happen (just in case I ever needed to for work/big brother, etc. purposes) and I did not realize that I would not be able to change it back.

bluesman is working to see if I can get things restored.

APA this evening. Then Baltic Porter early next week when my Dortmunder Export is ready for kegging so I can reuse the yeast.

A faux pils with US-05.  Plus, turning a few ales that have been brewed in the last few weeks, using the Drew B and Sean T concepts of quick ale production.  May have to gelatin a couple to clear them, but the FG hit the mark in about 7 days for both batches (one is racked and the other is ready to rack); I have been primary fermenting for a month as a general practice, but I am beginning to see the light.

Just racked a helles off a lager cake and it smells so good I might make another batch tomorrow.  Also have a big weizenbock and an APA to bottle.
