Well, they do take hockey pretty seriously in this town. The Junior league team regularly sells out their new arena.

You could live in Kelowna for half the year. It gets to around 41C (106F) here in the summer, but then it drops to around -20C (-4F) in the winter.

Hey Denny!

I'm down in Vancouver, nice to hear theres a fellow brewer so close! We should get together sometime and exchange brews... though I'll have to brew one up thats worthy... last couple haven't been very good, won't be doin those recipes again...

As for the Canucks, don't get me started... they're one of those teams that seem to win inspite of themselves... I'm a Kings fan myself, don't ask me how or why...

And sorry, no experience at sending beer south (other than in my trunk)...

Cool. I used to live in Vancouver. Moved up to Kelowna a few months ago. Plan on moving back some time in the next year. I just got back into brewing again after a several year hiatus. Where do you buy your supplies in Van? I hear Dan's brewing is pretty good.

Do you do extract or all grain? I haven't tried all grain yet as I need equipment and more room. But the brewmaster at a local prewpub will sell me any Grains I would need.

Go Canuckle heads!

Well, if you lived here, then I can tell ya I'm actually in Port Coquitlam. Up until now, I buy my supplies at Spagnols on Annacis Island, but their selection isn't great and is supposed to get worse. I found another shop in West Van, Ambleside Brewing Company. I'm gonna check them out when I get around to this Hoegaarden clone, cuz Spagnols doesn't have everything I need.

As for Dan's Brewing, never heard of it, where is it?!?

I've only done all grain, haven't tried extract, though I'm thinkin of maybe doing some extract brews in the future, for those days where I don't have all day to brew.

And as for the Canucks... well... at least they were entertaining losing to Calgary last night... They're playin the Kings next week, I'm lookin forward to that one...


P.S. You haven't come across any good clone recipes of some of the BC and Canadian brews, have ya? I found a site last year that had clone recipes for all these Canadian beers, and haven't been able to find it since!! Kokanee, Canadian, you know, the piss that everyone around here seems to drink... Wanted to make some for my buddies, but can't find them...

Dans: http://pacificcoast.net/~dansmall/

Located on Commercial a couple blocks north of Hastings. I think he's beside the Storm Microbrewery. Sells AG too.

No, I've been looking for decent clone recipe so I can give some beers to friends who like crap beer, though it would be nice to be able to drink it my self. haha.

I was thinking of using corns suger to thin out some extract a bit then lightly hop. On Dan's website he has this recipe:

Quote:
Summer Lager O.G. 1.045
4.5lb Pale malt extract
2.5 lb Liquid Invert Sugar OR 1 KG dextrose
5 AAU Mt. Hood or Cascade - 45 mins
1/2 oz Mt. Hood, Hallertau or Saaz
Finnish Lager Yeast or Nottingham Ale Yeast
A true lager is fermented cold (12-15 Celsius) and aged colder (5-10 Celsius) in the secondary using a pure (liquid) lager culture. If this is not possible, use a neutral dried ale yeast.
Typical Canadian Lager, just like the big breweries make. Enough said.
Thats 5 AAU worth of boiling hops not 5 oz.

Keep in mind that most American (Bud etc) beers sold in Canada are actually brewed in Canada and are a slightly diff. recipe. So they too are little more "Canadian" in flavor. Except miller, I think that one is an import. If I come across any good Canadian beer clones I'll let you know.
