  • Posted in thread: Anyone ever put Champagne on tap? on 09-28-2014 at 12:16 AM
    We're having a few out-of-town friends in for New Year's Eve this year. I'm almost finished
    with my 5 tap keezer/bar build and thought it would be funny to surprise some of the girls who
    don't drink b...

  • Posted in thread: Effects of thinner mash??? on 09-21-2014 at 02:19 PM
    Anywhere from 1-2 quarts/lb is considered safe. If you start going a lot thinner you run the
    risk of extracting tannins and getting an overly-dry finish to your beer.

    Agreed with above. Also, I like Nottingham for my IPAs. It's aggressive and clean. 05 isn't
    bad, it's what I used to use, but I use Notty almost exclusively now with (I think) better
    results.

    Good thought with 22C... Somehow none of us came up with that despite oak being the elephant in
    the room. So, now we're leaning toward 22C with Amber Ale as a base.

    I've been debating with several people about where my American Strong Ale belongs in an
    upcoming BJCP contest. It'll be in the specialty category but I need a base category.It's got a
    fair amount of b...

    Awesome! Count me in!

  • Posted in thread: IPA with no early addition hops on 08-11-2014 at 02:27 PM
    Yeah, that's why I do 5.5 gallons. The hop tea eliminates the loss in the fermenter. Also, I
    use a DIY hop spider in my boil kettle which I can twist and allow to drain a bit.Sent from my

  • Posted in thread: Oxygenation - necessary? on 08-11-2014 at 02:22 PM
    I still use straight O2 with my Belgians. I've never really thought of it as being anymore
    dangerous than the 6 propane tanks I have in my garage/brewery. Just don't use if around an
    open flame. The t...

    Thanks Yooper. My hop schedule may look a little funny but it's because I'm trying out Zythos
    for the first time.Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew
