  • Posted in thread: Ideas for very malty red ale? on 11-12-2007 at 04:16 PM
    I'm thinking a couple pounds of munich, some dark (ca 90L) crystal and maybe some melanoiden in
    addition to a very small (.5 oz) amount of roasted barley. And a fairly low BU/GU ratio--maybe

    I have a fairly late model Dish Washer(less then three years old). It is a top of the line
    Kemore Elite that has an Anti Bacterial setting. Do I trust it to Sanitize my Bottles? Not a
    Chance. I rinse ...

  • Posted in thread: Finally found time top brew yesterday after a 6-month haitus on 11-04-2007 at 01:45 PM
    Travel, coaching soccer, work...just all got in the way. Luckily I had a good stack of HB built
    up but I suspect it'll be gone by the time the robust porter I brewed yesterday is ready to go.
    Nice to ...

    Perhaps you might want to consider brewing styles that improve with age: many Belgian ales,
    barley wines, etc.They are trickier styles to master, though.

    What Flyguy said. TO elaborate--some ingredients (and therefore some beer styles) really
    require mashing, so they can only be porperly brewed PM or AG. Plus, it's fun, you get some
    more toys and steps...

  • Posted in thread: Best way to cut ingredient costs? on 07-06-2007 at 06:11 PM
    Going AG is the major thing.As far as yeast, reusing yeast really isn't very difficult or
    time-consuming, and it can save you quite a bit if you're using liquid yeast.Also, there are
    some very high qu...

    When I used to work in retail, the new week began on Sundays and that was fairly standard. I
    think it is traditional for the week to start on Sunday in the U.S., I know Monday is
    traditional in Latin ...

    I accidentally no-showed at work today. They start their work calendar on monday and even after
    6 months, I always assume it starts on Sunday. :off: I'm curious--what part of the world are
    you (origin...

  • Posted in thread: Overall, who has the best beers? on 07-03-2007 at 07:30 PM
    Do you really think the US industry can compete against the UK, Belgium and the rest of
    Europe?Are you asking me? To clarify, what I meant is that the local beer is generally going to
    be the best and ...

  • Posted in thread: Overall, who has the best beers? on 07-03-2007 at 07:03 PM
    If we're talking about the best beer available in the USA (and if price is part of the
    equation), then clearly the USA wins: there is better beer, more reasonably priced available
    from here than from ...
