  • Posted in thread: I workout... not really on 12-11-2013 at 04:06 AM
    I drink 4 or 5 beers a day and run for or five miles every other day. I run stairs a couple
    days a week too. I eat really healthy and it seems to work for me. I walk a few miles on the
    days I don't ru...

  • Posted in thread: How many batches do you brew in a month? on 12-07-2013 at 01:52 AM
    I brew 2 or 3 times a month of 8 to 11 gallon batches depending on how much grain is required
    for the recipe. I always split them into two carboys and do different yeasts or different dry
    hops just fo...

  • Posted in thread: carbonating pinot noir question on 12-04-2013 at 08:33 PM
    Yeah I guess that's a stupid idea. Maybe I'll back sweeten then bottle pasteurize. Or maybe
    I'll just carb it like it is. It's a single vineyard Oregon Pinot and it tastes good.

  • Posted in thread: carbonating pinot noir question on 12-04-2013 at 02:29 PM
    I've got 5 gallons of Pinot Noir in a carboy that has been at 0 brix for a while now. I'm
    thinking about carbonating it in bottles for fun. If I were to add some Port wine at bottling
    for additional s...

  • Posted in thread: dry hop duration question on 11-27-2013 at 11:09 PM
    I would just leave it be. I've left dry hops in carboys for over a month and have never tasted
    anything grassy. I think it's an urban legend.

    I went to Puckerfest the night Flat Tale's brewer was there. Their Lemon Diesel was delicious.
    It was a Saison dry hopped with mosaic blended with a 2 year old Berliner Weise. Also Upright's
    barrel ag...

  • Posted in thread: How long do crushed grains stay usably fresh in the freezer? on 07-14-2013 at 08:12 PM
    Depending on what they are stored in in the freezer they could pick up flavors from the food in
    there or moisture. I just recently brewed a batch from 20 lbs of grain that was crushed two and
    a half m...

    I brewed mine on April 23 and it tastes like it's at its peak too me. Of course there are only
    a few bottles left.

  • Posted in thread: Modifying a blonde ale ingredient kit on 06-19-2013 at 03:52 AM
    I would add more base malt and more hops.

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopped 10 days vs. 2 months experiment on 06-19-2013 at 03:14 AM
    You're right! It was an accidental experiment. I have 20+ carboys laying around my basement and
    kinda forgot about the other half of this batch. I'm glad I bottled it later than I meant to
    though beca...
