If I am going to drink a BMC beer I'm going to drink one of the sub-premium ones. They all taste like crap anyways, so why pay more? I don't drink bad beer often, so this doesn't really effect me,...

I have heard of that and that was one thing I was considering. I've never had tactical nuclear penguin, but I have been curious about it.

To the person that mentioned Ice Wine, yes, that is made...

I've checked the local laws. In Ohio so long as it doesn't go about 24% ABV (which I am not aiming to do) it's still considered beer.

If I wanted hard spirits I'd just go with a still, and I...

Not just the alcohol level. From what I understand freeze distilling kicks up all the flavors since it takes out water without taking out the rest of the stuff. I love super big beers and I figure...

I wouldn't use Beer Advocate to tell me if a beer is good or not. However it can give you a good idea of what a beer tastes like.

Personally I am not a Hops fan, I love malt, I love roast, I...

I made a sour peach wheat that turned out absolutely delicious. I didn't use pureee though, I used 10 lbs of fresh peaches which I diced and cooked down.

3)

You aren't really very likely to be able to avoid a pellicle. Maybe you'll get lucky. In any case it wont' be a very big one, just a ring around the inside of the neck.

Considering an Ice Beer

I know that the most common variety to do a freeze distillation on is a bock. I'm not interested in getting into Lagers as I tend to greatly prefer the flavors in an ale.

I am curious what sort...

It has now developed a pellicle. A fairly thin one. I assume this is because it is in a carboy with a fair amount of headspace and was thus exposed to oxygen. I am going to do my best not to...

Beer can get too peachy? Everyone seemed quite insistent when I was planning mine that I wasn't going to end up with much peach flavor unless I added extract. I didn't, but I do have about 2 lbs of...

That's been my impression of Dundee, not great, but certainly not bad. I enjoyed their honey brown and their stout, the Kolch was certainly drinkable, if not really my thing.

A darker malt is going to be less fermentable. If you are going all grain you could also adjust your mash temperature to extract less fermentable sugars so you'd get the flavor without the alcohol.

That's not a bad idea. I may do that in the future. From all indications I think this batch is going to turn out pretty well. The excess that I took out to make room for the peaches had way too...

I'm not real keen on adding chemicals, If this idea wouldn't help I may just either get a bigger fermenter for big beers or make smaller batches.
