  1. See, are we talking about the “tablespoon” of vanilla, or the “tablespoon” itself. Im guessing any food product sold on the shelf should be “food grade” and free of bacteria. The tablespoon itself on the other hand, i would sanitize.
  2. Id just stick it in boiling water for a minute or five. Then wait for it to cool obviously eh?
  3. Wouldnt be a trip to the LHBS without stopping for some Three Floyds!

      Just poured my second one. Nap time coming soon. Ill be back to 0.00 by the time I wake 

  4. Ritebrew has it. They dont have everything, but they had that. I had to sub liberty for mt hood for example.
  5. Ordered all the ingredients for this. Itll be the first wort my counterflow chiller sees. As soon as the conical opens up, this is going in. Its a Schells firebrick clone. I previously told @Bonsai & Brew i wasnt the biggest fan of that beer, but a guy should get through at least half of his sixer before he opens his big mouth. Im really liking the firebrick / nordeast combo. Start with a nordeast or two and then finish with a full flavored similar beer. One two punch
  6. Hope all is well my friend.  Long days and pleasant nights there Gunslinger

  7. For those following along at home, its hard as a rock... I should've saved some grains from this weeks brews for the beast balls. Damn.
  8. One week later, im about to make my “beast balls”. Thinking ill chew on some GNO and see if they taste anything like quick oats
  9. I was thinking to myself today "cant you sneak in a brew day during the week? I mean the pipeline is awfully low". So I said, Self, that's a damn good idea. Went home, drew up a recipe fpr a simple 5 gallon BIAB. Prepare tomorrow, Brew on Wednesday. Well, then my phone buzzed and an event was added to the family calendar. Apparently my wife will be with my sister tomorrow night, kids will be at my parents so of course Ill be brewing tomorrow. Salts are measured, kettle is clean, grains are milled, should be set. Oh hell yeah!!!
  10. Ive been milling my GNOs everytime ive used them. Havent seen a retailer that says not to mill then yet but no one says “must be milled”. I had to refer to a pro brewer forum where it said they mill them up. Anywho, not my real question. Every week i make my own energy concoction of quick oats, honey, PB, and chocolate chips. Think i could use golden naked oats instead of quaker? And not mill them for my home made bars?
  11. That fresh hop beer had some wild yeast in it from white labs but I don't think it was supposed to sour it... Drink ASAP.  I gave one to a buddy and he said it was really fizzy but he only had it in the fridge for a few hours and he said he was carrying it in his back pocket, rookies... 

     

    PS, yes I know everyone can see this.  I have no shame

  12. I remember hearing about this on the brewing networks “hop and brew school” podcast. Its hard to remember whats spoken about on what episode but maybe the hop format show or the hop oil fractions show talks about these.
  13. I agree. I brewed 10 gallons this weekend, 5 gallons AG wouldve taken just as much time, 2 gallons wouldve taken just as much time. Brew more now so you dont have to brew later. Split yeasts, add fruit, experiment and youll learn twice as fast
