    Hops Direct now accepting orders

    Thanks for the tip. I've been waiting on but spring has come early here.... so I went ahead and bit the bullet. I've had good luck with these folks and am hoping they are as generous with their roots as they are with their flowers.

    I'm done with AG.

    Dan, it takes a special kind of person to stay AG. The love of the hobby makes us want to achieve the best it can be. Going all-grain does mean more control and more to control. It doesn't mean your beers are going to be any better. If your good ,consistent and comfortable with PM then that's...

    Opinions, please. First beer I'm designing (sorta'...)

    You are probably going to have to run this recipe a few times while adjusting the hop schedule. One suggestion I have is to adjust your OG down to the 1.056. If it were me I would adjust it to about 1.048. The 6.7% abv is a bit too much bite for this beer. IMHO It's a real interesting grain...

    Funky off flavors in AG Doppelbock

    Biermann, give the heavies at least a year. Try to keep the temperature as stable as possible. I think you'll be surprised if you can tolerate the wait.

    Harvesting Yeast from "Unfiltered" Primary

    Evan, go with HB Bill's suggestion. BTW , I love that yeast too!

    Effic. Sucks......

    I think its your PH. Order some 5.2 Ph buffer from your LHBS. I bet you'll see at least a 10%-20% difference in your efficiency.

    401k rollover? IRA?

    I'm with The Bird, I strongly suggest the Vanguard fund. Fidelity left a real bad taste in my mouth during the crash of 2000. Good Luck.

    Ever want to crucify someone?

    Help with Promash

    The problem with ProMash is it assumes you have the means to heat your mash tun to mash out temperatures. Before I added steam , and then HERMS to my system I would add a few quarts of boiling water to the mash tun at mash out, stir and slowly bring my mash up to my mash out temp. ie...

    Mashing with too much water

    Sorry Begee, but you have to answer that as a question.

    VOTE: Shirt Design

    Sorry Txbrew , just now saw this. Ian's design has 3 colors if put on a white t shirt. It has 4 colors if put on any thing other than white. One can use a white background(white T-shirt) to simulate the color. If you want a colored t-shirt then white ink will have to be used creating the need...

    Mashing with too much water

    OK, here's the question: What other than PH and mash thickness makes Begee's beer so bad. :confused:

    Let's talk mash analysis!

    After reading the posts by the gentlemen above I'm wondering if your efficiency concerns should be more focused on your processing parameters. Parameters such as mash ph/temp/time, sparge time/temp, water analysis and final volume.

    The Beer Gods conversations took place during the El Pistolero days of Moderation. Those who have been here awhile remember Yeastivus and Hopstrus. I played the forum as a meeting place for homebrewers and these gods that tempt us. A Firkin is an old english unit of volume which is equal...
