  • Posted in thread: Is kettle caramelization bull? on 01-29-2015 at 08:54 AM
    I always hear about it. When it comes to Scottish/Scotch ales it seems almost doctrine that it
    will have kettle caramelization in its flavor profile. Greg Noonan says it's so in Scotch Ales.
    People go...

    I have every confidence in modern filtration. If it's good beer it's good beer, even if it's
    made by tree huggers.

    Since deregulation, beer seems to be one of the most perfect free markets in existence. Quality
    is becoming more important than marketing (the majors haven't seemed to figure that out yet).

    Agreed on the quality of the welds. I have the same issues but they are not as bad as yours

    I find it fascinating that folks would choose their beer based on an anti corporate ideology
    with a prejudiced assumption that a corporate entity necessitates employees are miserable and
    apparently pu...

  • Posted in thread: How much can a bottle handle? on 01-29-2015 at 03:54 AM
    I have a post somewhere on this sight that addresses this. Not all 12 oz bottles are equal.
    Weigh them out and you will see some contain much more material. I weighed out a lot of
    different bottles an...

    Your pictures aren't loading in my computer. I have two RTD's on my MT, one from a thermowell
    and the other on the outlet. They rarely read the same, an issue likely due to channeling. I
    look to my ou...

    Nope. Just the two buffers and deionized water to rinse it off. At least that is all I have
    done, no special cleaning solution.

  • Posted in thread: Bottle Conditioning 100% Brett IPA on 01-29-2015 at 12:21 AM
    The main thing for the OP is to know that 100% brett beers don't super attenuate. Treat them
    like a normal sacc ferment. So he is fine to dry hop and bottle without waiting months to
    finally bottom ou...

    What are you waiting for, it hit its FG and is stable? Dry hop and bottle as soon as you are
    done with the DH.

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
