I haven't gotten around to carbing this up. It's still got a bit of a pelicle on top, so I've
been just letting it be. I'll be sure to post results once I sample it.
Posted in thread: Pizza Port Coffee Monster Recipe? on 04-05-2012 at 06:45 AM
I don't have that recipe, but Pizza Port does share with the homebrewing community. MoreBeer
has several of their recipes available as kits. When I've asked them about other beers, they
were pretty fr...
Posted in thread: Forgot 45 min hop addition Pliny Clone on 09-25-2011 at 11:44 PM
I suspect you will never taste the difference in terms of IBUs. The first addition in that
recipe takes your bitterness to the maximum perceivable limit. Everything after that is for
flavor, aroma, an...

+1 to trying a bunch of stuff at Russian River. My wife and I split their sampler (which at the
time had 15 beers in it), and all styles were excellent. Their Aud Blonde probably surprised me

Rather than fuss with different bottle sizes or glasses, this is probably a good justification
for getting a keg set-up. Then you can fill your glasses perfectly every time! :)

I've been looking for an excuse to brew a Wee Heavy, so I voted for that.

I'm not sure if my email went through. In case it didn't, I would like to buy one.

I know Cuvee de Tomme from Lost Abbey uses them. You could always email Tomme Arthur to see
where he gets his. Most brewers I've met are happy to share that kind of info.
Posted in thread: CLEANEST Bittering Hops? on 07-13-2011 at 04:47 AM
I've used both Magnum and Warrior for bittering in many styles of beers. I find both to be
quite clean, but both do contribute a bit of flavor. I'd say Magnum is ever so slightly
green/minty, whereas ...
Posted in thread: Looking into brewing Belgians more often, Belgian pale ale or pilsner malt? on 07-05-2011 at 06:39 AM
I've had good results using Belgian or German Pils for most of my Belgian-style beers. I
frequently blend the pils with about 50% US 2-row for a little more depth in the malt flavor
(an obvious bonus ...
