    Gambrinus 30L Dark Munich

    Has anyone tried this stuff? I'm having a hard time finding a review or any reliable looking posts about this malt. I was thinking of using some in a Vienna lager, more of a Negra Modelo clone because of its darker color. Thanks

    Sounds like a good idea. How many Huntsville folks do we have on this forum?

    I live in Owens Cross Roads which isn't far from Grant, went to the little Ace Hardware over there last weekend. Unfortunately I don't know anybody in the construction business but I'll let you know if I come across anything.

    I just moved to the "Huntsvull" area from South Alabama. What area are you moving to if you don't mind me asking?

    DME solid in kit

    If its so tough that you cant crush it up you may be able to slowly heat it in a pot with a little water and kind of melt it down to a LME state. I haven't actually done this but it sounds like it would work :D I think if you throw it into the boil kettle in its current sate its going to be...

    DME solid in kit

    How solid are we talking about? I think you'd be fine as long as you can get it most of the way crushed up. I use DME for starters and the little hard balls that develop can be tough to deal with if you dont smash them before they go in the boil. As far as off flavors, I wouldn't let that worry me.

    Yeah, screw the local guy right? Engineers are too intelligent to buy anything in town I guess.

    Alabama Visiting Gulf Shores from IN

    Rouse's supermarket in Gulf Shores is probably your best bet for craft beer shopping while you're down there. Just fyi...

    Alabama Visiting Gulf Shores from IN

    Hmmm, Gulf Shores isn't exactly craft beer heaven if you know what I mean. Big Beach Brewing Company opened recently but I haven't been there and I haven't heard anything about it yet. Fairhope Brewing is about 40 mins away and you can find their beer in Gulf Shores or visit the brewery in...

    Done with the plate chiller....

    Well, I think instead of spending more cash on a different chiller I'm going to give the plate chiller another chance. But, first I'm going to make some changes to my dip tube arrangement and, the paint strainer bags are going in the bin! Thanks for all the responses, lots of good info.

    Done with the plate chiller....

    I really hate my Duda Diesel plate chiller.....really hate it. I think it has clogged every single time I've brewed with it no matter what I do. I brewed a batch this evening with 4oz of pellet hops that were in Lowe's paint strainer bags and it still clogged from the stuff that made it through...

    Alabama Wish You Were Beer Huntsville, AL

    Yeah, I miss Daphne, I used to do a lot of saltwater fishing but none of that up here. Guess I'll have to go bass fishing instead. Hopefully we'll be moving back down there in a couple years. I'm really happy that Fairhope brewing ended up being successful. The first few times I had their beer...

    Alabama Wish You Were Beer Huntsville, AL

    I moved to Huntsville in November and was disappointed that there really wasn't a good homebrew store in the area. Luckily, "Wish You Were Beer" opened a few weeks ago at Campus 805 and I couldn't be happier! Grain by the sack, White Labs and Wyeast, Nice hop selection that is actually stored in...
