  1. De Pere (east)- where i live Ashwaubenon- where the packers play Appleton- where i get @Jdubs alpha king thats my area! Dont go many other places. Good old Wisconsin
  2. I just ordered all the grains for the second vienna lager fire brick clone. Last batch was may sweeter. I am using different yeast but i know its because of my mashing technique. I got er under control now, hopefully. Well see when i can sneak this beer in
  3. I know a lot of yall have carboys or big mouth bubblers or whatever the hell you have. I did a little test on the Anvil carboy cooking coil with my pale ale. If you’re interested, check it out

     

    Review: Anvil Cooling System

     

  4. Oh man. First of all, hells yeah. But before you brew it, let me tell you a little about this beer. no wheat no crystal its clear as clear could be and also pretty pale. Maybe a slight crystal. Man I dont know. Man oh man. I could literally hop in my car and ask mr oldenburg for the recipe. I went to school with his brother mike who i could also shoot a message to... you ever had this beer before @Cato?
  5. Filling my kettle... not sure if I can sneak one in today but Im gonna try!!!
  6. @Jdub @Shrike @Cato its not smoking meat but it is cooking stuff! Episode 1

      If it wouldn't help put me in an early grave I'd eat B&G four or five times a week.  I make my own breakfast sausage for it.

  7. Wouldnt it be nice if an employee from mr beer would advise on this question?
  8. Boy i tell you, this week... unexpected $800 car bill, my toilet is clogged, we got put on mandatory overtime, ITS WINTER ALL OF A SUDDEN. All these things dragging me down. But then the ups man shows up with an early xmas present from a friend and theres two beer kits in the box. Things are looking up
  9. Well, with a rims, youll need another element. Keep in mind one heat source is for the mash and then youll need one for the boil. So if you just have one induction burner, youll need another element of some kind. I think im up to date on your set up, i dont recall another heat source. If you have the whirlpool port set up then you should be good with that as your return. If youre thinking about my problems with such a temp difference in the mash and wort around my basket, my problem is that my basket has a very find mesh. Its almost like a wall in there. But stirring frequently helps youll be fine with just a biab set up and one burner. Youll just have to stir more often at worst. If youre using a brew bag then you should be covered. You dont have an element inside the kettle so you wont get scorching. id just give the new set up a few test runs and then youll know what it can and cant do.
  10. Me: look it wife, I ordered everything on this app for groceries this week. 
     

    Wife: thats cool, where at? 
     

    me: woodmans (the furthest store away with the most gigantic beer selection)

     

    wife: oh I see whats happening here

     

    me: (Smiling) what do you mean???

  11. Ive brewed quite a bit lately. 25 gallons in two weeks. But ones a lager and itll take awhile. Perhaps Ill do my old trick of a two day sour brew. I did pick up some gooseberries today for such an occasion. day 1- mash, bring up to 180, cool to 100, pitch lacto day 2 or 3- boil, cool, pitch yeast.
  12. This always reminds me of the 2018 MUG meet up
  13. Where are you getting those exotic ingredients like idaho 7 and vics secret?
  14. 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.
  15. Id just stick it in boiling water for a minute or five. Then wait for it to cool obviously eh?
  16. 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 

  17. Ritebrew has it. They dont have everything, but they had that. I had to sub liberty for mt hood for example.
  18. 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
  19. Hope all is well my friend.  Long days and pleasant nights there Gunslinger

      All is well, brother. Shit got real for awhile there, but things are normal once more. I've made some big swings in upgrading recently. Bought a large fridge converted into a kegerator, converted a picnic cooler into a mash tun, and bought a 10 gallon kettle. I'm currently carbing my first AG batch and fermenting my second. Pretty exciting stuff! 

      Hows your brewery coming along? I'd love to say I have enough time to catch up in the forums, but that's a lie. 

      Take care and thanks for the sentiment. 

  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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!!!
  23. 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?
