  • I once won an argument with myself. I have been described as a handsome square jawed lunatic! A rattlesnake bit me last year, it died of poisoning. rnrnI have a word for men whom can't lift their own body weight, women. A man should be able to process wild game, know how to woo a lady, and feel reasonably comfortable of the outcome when squaring off with 2 attackers. A man should also know either good whisky or good beer, know how to cook well, be well read, be passionate about what life has to offer, be humble, never be a braggart, be comfortable with who and what he is, be able to move beyond and learn from his failures, be good with at least one of the following handy disciplines; electrician, mechanic, or carpentry.

  • I watched beerfest and googled homemade beer. It's all a blur from there! I'm an AG brewer. I'm neither a hophead nor a malt crazy... I'm both. If it's a well made brew I'll probably enjoy it. Not a big drinker but love good bier and food. As such I take as much pleasure in a 3.5% bier as I do a 10.5%.

    I knew you were denied access to the guidelines but though you weren't told the beer style
    either. Live and learn. That's good news. I've guess judged and when I was active in a homebrew

    Qhrumphf, that's some great advice. It is also encouraging advice as it is really hard to sit
    down to styles of beer you've got no idea what they are and decide this is X and not Y or Z.
    Trying to dec...

    Guess what I was trying to say was if I had to choose between the two I'd prefer pitching into
    properly cooled wort and holding it there till high krausen then letting it go free vs pitching
    into hot ...

    For future reference brewers are better off to wait till you can pith the yeast vs pitching
    while the wort is too warm. The reason being that most off-flavor precursors and actual off
    flavors are crea...

    I'm planning a dry irish stout with rolled oats rather than flaked barley and was looking for
    comparisons when I came upon this. Seems the flavors from this small sampling tend to be the
    same or very ...

  • Posted in thread: What's been your experience with peated malt? What recipe did you use it in? on 09-30-2015 at 05:17 PM
    It is a different kind of smoke, phenolic like peaty island scotch whiskey and not for
    everyone. I however love it! A dosing of .5 to 1.5% in most any non-hoppy beer would play well.
    It would be inter...

    Welcome to HBT! I am intrigued by your name. Is it German in origin? Would seem to fit with
    your interest in lager bier.
