They serve Bud and maybe Bud Light at the one near me. No way in hell I'd drive 3 hours to go
to a Chuckie Cheese. I'd need to be getting something else pretty good out of it.

You could try sending it in as an alt beer (not sure which one); that's probably what I'd do.
Posted in thread: Lactose, really unfermentable? on 01-20-2015 at 06:51 PM
Lactobacillus will ferment it, but like others said, brewer's yeast won't. I don't know if
Brett does or does not ferment it.

So that's after the batch has been racked to a secondary? Doesn't that kick off another fast
ferment?I think you can do it in primary or secondary, but in the 120 min process, at least one

If you want to place, don't brew ipa's. Or Belgians or stouts or American ales. Brew pretty

So, where do you get it? Never heard of them.
Posted in thread: Why do breweries partially bottle condition? on 01-17-2015 at 09:08 PM
I don't think they're partially force carbonating; more likely, they cap the fermenter near the
end of fermentation, and trap around 2 volumes of CO2. They bottle condition to either meet
Posted in thread: Munich Malt... appears to be a crystal malt on 01-13-2015 at 05:11 PM
I don't think they mean the same process as making crystal malts when they say the Munich malt

Posted in thread: Looking for ideas on how to add in a 'cornbread' flavor on 01-13-2015 at 03:54 AM

will give much flavor.
