    Favorite beer has to be a Marzen, preferably Paulaner. Just finished off a liter tonight!Bike
    is a Roadstar 1600 - God created the combustion engine for us to use - no need to pedal :-)

  • Posted in thread: High Gravity Brew - no carbonation in a bottle on 08-08-2012 at 04:31 AM
    I also had similar issues with a Bourbon Baltic Porter - OG was 1.084, FG was 1.016. I did not
    re-pitch, and for that it took 6 months to carbonate. But in the end it was completely worth it
    as condit...

  • Posted in thread: Outdoor brewing in summer on 07-15-2012 at 01:18 PM
    I brew all the time at high summer temps. Start usually around 8am so the brewday doesn't
    extend too far into the afternoon heat. Did a double decoction last year when the drought temps
    hit around 110...

    That is freakin' sweet! :rockin: Very nice job in the finishing touches - definitely a project
    I want to undertake so I can have both hands free for milling instead of using the drill.Where

  • Posted in thread: Brewing Solo vs. Brewing with a partner(s) on 05-10-2012 at 03:20 AM
    I brew both ways - many times my wife is my brew partner :D; that definitely helps out a lot
    when I need help milling, doughing in, sparging, etc. Extra hands are always nice. Other times
    I brew alone...

  • Posted in thread: Pliny Brewday....not like any other beer. on 05-08-2012 at 02:52 AM
    I brewed a PTE clone several months ago. It was my most expensive 5 gallon brew to date, all in
    the hops. In total including 2 dry hoppings; I added 1 pound of hops into the batch! But in the
    end, the...

  • Posted in thread: Q about pitching "yeast cake" on 05-07-2012 at 12:55 PM
    I recently brewed a Kolsch where I pitched straight on top of a previous fermentation using the
    Kolsch yeast WLP029. Fermentation was strong and quick; then racked and lagered to clean up.
    Beer came o...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone brewed with mango? on 05-04-2012 at 02:31 AM
    I also used mango in the secondary. Basically pureed it, then boiled it to sanitize, then
    placed it into a grain bag into the secondary. Grain bag allows easy extraction after
    re-fermentation is compl...

  • Posted in thread: Nitrogen gas mix on 02-22-2012 at 10:54 PM
    I have a nitro setup as well. The typical beer gas mix is 75% N2/25% CO2. Thus driving the
    lines at around 30 PSI is needed not only to push the beer through the stout restrictor plate,
    but also to ma...
