    Visiting Austin This Weekend!

    I searched threads for recent posts on where to go and what to do in Austin but the most recent I found was from 2008. Anyone have suggestions for my visit? My girlfriend and I are going to try to get out to Jester King on Saturday. She'll be in a conference Monday through Wednesday so...

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    This beer turned out quite well and in my opinion, much better than the first year of the barrel. I think the yeast needed some time to acclimate. Cheers to Brian for the recipe and hosting this project. :mug:

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    Hey guys. I hope the rest of the transfers went well. Brian thanks again for putting this together. Anytime you're up north, just give me a heads up and I'll buy you a beer or have you over to sample some of my cellared beers. Gplutt, I have five gallons for you along with your carboy and...

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    Yeah I have no idea when everyone else is shooting for but I'll be by tomorrow night. I'm still not sure when we'll be able to get out of town but I can try to give you a heads up when we get on the road. I'm guessing I'll be over around 7 or so.

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    I'm coming down Thursday afternoon or evening depending when I can get out of work and on the road. Gplutt, I haven't heard back from you but I'm planning on bringing an extra keg for your share and we can just swap the beer out later unless you want to get a keg to me before Thursday. For...

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    How's Thursday the 21st looking? I am planning on coming down that afternoon and will be free that night or else Sunday on the way back through. Just let me know what works, or if you just want me to drop off some kegs on Thursday and pick them up on Sunday. I really don't need the barrel but...

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    Wow. That was oddly corresponding timing. I'm going to be out at the coast on the 23rd but could come by that Thursday night, Friday morning, or Sunday afternoon. Or I can just drop off some kegs and pick them up on the way back through if those times don't work.

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    I haven't been on the forums for a few weeks due to a busy stretch. Curtis, I wish you luck on your trip to Texas. Brian, let me know when you want to empty the barrel and what you want to do with it after that. I'm heading down this weekend for a quick trip and the weekend of the...

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Choconut Porter

    Mashing a little on the high side (~154-156*f) is about right for this beer. I typically do 1.33 qts/lb for my strike water but have been trending up to 1.5 qts/lb lately when I don't have space limitations. Really, that shouldn't matter much.

    OR/WA Group Brew v3.0

    Cool. Let us know how it's changed. And yeah, the previous beer has an interesting popcorn character that I'm not entirely digging. But blending can pull that down and let other things come through. Really, for me though, it needs much more tartness. As for the barrel, I've got a barrel...

    Hey Kilted, I just realized it's been awhile so I thought I'd see how this batch is coming along and if you have a date in mind to drain and possibly re-fill the barrel.

    Gluten Free Wicked Messenger Wit

    Thanks for the quick response. If you see a trend with how the sorghum comes through using various yeasts, I'm sure other people would find it helpful as well. Keep up the good work on the gluten-free front.

    Gluten Free Wicked Messenger Wit

    I just received some sorghum extract I ordered from Northern Brewer. I'm leaning toward this recipe since I'd like to avoid/cover up the odd sorghum twang people talk about. What else would you do to de-emphasize that? And what yeasts do you think would either accentuate or mitigate that twang?

    Brewer's Classic [Washington State Homebrew Golf Event]

    Hello Friends, The Brewer's Classic golf course is currently a soppy wetland so we've had to postpone the event for about a month. Instead of being this Saturday, it's now going to be Saturday July 10th. Everything but the date is staying the same - we'll still have homebrew on every hole...
