No, not together!

After being trampled underfoot by Flobey, Tom Meier et al at a recent contest, I received as a consolation prize a jar of C-Brite and a couple of ounces of Palisade plugs. I have never used either of these. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with these? Pros and cons? TIA.

Below is a quote from Jolly Brewer in another post. This may give you some ideas on what to do with your Palisade plugs.


**I use 1/2 oz hop plugs and these are the freshest, bestest hops designed to be used for dry hopping casks. (this is why they are the shape they are so they can fit throught the bung hole of a cask). As a result some of the high AA hops are unavailable in this format, but that's beside the point... my point is, since I have switched to using plugs, I've noticed that I have a much higher hop profile in my beers, but also I've noticed the difference between varieties a lot more.**

Yeah, yeah, I get the "plug" part - what I'm curious about is the "Palisades" part.

Graham, check out this article on RateBeer.com. 11 micros brewed an IPA with a single hop - same recipe, same malt, same yeast, different hop with amounts adjusted to produce equivalent IBUs. Palisades was one of the hops used.

I've always been scared of C-Brite but know a lot of folks in ATL use it. It says it's no rinse but it's chlorine based which doesn't add up when applied to brewing. Also it's a combo cleaner and sanitizer. Kind of figure it's not that great at either. I've had a container sitting in my brewery from last years BMO that I've never opened.

Never used palisades either.
