---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 06:46:45 -0400 From: darrell.leavitt at plattsburgh.edu Subject: Peach Puree... I made a Peach Ale, using the Oregon Peach Puree, and I am concerned that I may have added the puree at the wrong time. Here is what I did: The recipe was a 'classic English cream ale' (4 lb Golden Promise 2 row, 2lb Mroavian Pils, 3 lb flaked maize, 2 lb Belgian Aromatic) OG was 1.055, FG was 1.012, %avb was about 4.3 (used wlp007 Dry English Ale yeast) It was in primary for about 7 days, then when I transferred into secondary I added the tin can of Oregon Peach Puree. Noticing that it gravitated to the bottom of the carboy, I made a point of 'rousing' it every couple of days,...then bottled (and pigged) 20 days later. The puree was real thick at the bottom of the carboy and I had an internal debate as to whether to pick some of this up...like I often do with yeast,..but I decided not to do so initially (1/2 went into a pig) , but to do so after, ie with the second half of the batch that went into the bottles... And, by the way, the peach flavor was not real strong... Now there is a huge clump of yeast, and mostly peach puree (I believe) at the bottom of each bottle... Is there a better way to use this puree? ..Darrell Return to table of contents

I saw a beer and wine shop on Cary street, in a little shopping center that I recall had a Subway in it. There are a bunch of other neat shops in that area too, including Plan 9, a great Record store. I was at a hotel in Chester, about ten miles south of Richmond on 95, which is easy to get to and from, and also noticed a nice homebrew shop right on the main drag, about a mile on the left as you go into the town. Have fun! Return to table of contents

Even his old nemesis Phil Yates seemed to be throwing kudos Steve's way. I feel that I must warn you to be careful, be VERY careful in doing this. Steve has already shortened hi name to -S. If he gets too many complements his name might go to - or maybe just . -J Millsap, Tx Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 11:23:39 -0400 (EDT) From: "Ronnie Anderson" <lerxst at webmages.com> Subject: RE: Richmond, VA--where to buy beer? There are several places in the area you can buy great beer. Here's a couple close to downtown: http://www.rivercitycellars.com/ - Small store, but great selection of rare imports http://www.capitalalehouse.com/ - 40 taps, 150 bottles. They are a distributor, so you can carry out. http://www.carytownwineandbeer.com/ - Good size selection of mostly micro's. And don't forget to check out Legend's and Richbrau, both downtown: http://www.legendbrewing.com/ http://www.richbrau.com/ Ronnie Return to table of contents

I've been using one for about 6 years now.The only bad result--it now takes me much longer to brew because I'm not willing to go back to extract brewing. Tidmarsh Major Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 07:54:21 -0800 From: "Jason Lindner" <jason at admin5.fastmail.fm> Subject: Igloo Cooler as a Mash Tun Robert Sandefer asked about using a 5 gallon Igloo Cooler as a mash tun. I've been using a 10 gallon Igloo cylindrical orange cooler as a mash/lauter tun for several batches now with no problem. It was a little bit of a pain at first, since the spigot hole seemed to be just in-between the size of every fitting I could find, so it took a bit of work to get a good seal on it. After a few trips to Home Depot, it is working just fine. The only precaution I would give is that my cooler seems to lose a lot of heat during my initial infusion, even if I've "prewarmed" the cooler by putting hot water into it and then emptying it before adding my grain. It may not be as bad with the 5 gallon size, but be prepared to have your strike water a little hotter than you might think. Once I get it to the right temperature, it holds there just fine, and it fits a Phil's Phalse Bottom and Sparge Arm as well as any other cylindrical cooler would. Return to table of contents

Want to buy some high grav. brews to bring back to our oppressive state. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Hello H. There are a couple of good spots to get a beer in downtown Richmond. There's a pretty good restaurant with a great beer selection called Capital Ale House. It's on Main Street, between 6th and 7th, and they have 30+ beers on tap plus 100+ in the bottle. No mega-swill. Lot's of good stuff. Good food, too. www.capitalalehouse.com Another suggestion in the Richbrau Brewery in Shockoe Slip, which is the historic district just to the east of downtown, on Cary Street between 12th and 14th. Richbrau is a brew-pub restaurant with a mixed bag of beer; some are better than others. As for high gravity, they do occasionally have barley wines and Belgian-style beers and most are available in 22 oz. bottles and growlers. Food is o.k. www.richbrau.com A little further afield is Legends, a brew-pub on the south side of the James River from downtown. To get there, you cross the 9th street bridge and take the first left and then another left. They have a great deck with a good view of downtown. I think the beer is generally better than Richbrau, but the food is only mediocre. Beer is available in bottles. www.legendbrewing.com For purchasing only, the closest outlet I can think of, other than the places mentioned above, it the Market at Tobacco Row, a new supermarket east of downtown. It's on Main Street, around 24th street or so, and it has a pretty decent selection of microbrews and imports. There is also a beer and wine store in Carytown, a district a couple of miles (5 miles?) west of downtown that has a good selection and the Kroger store in Carytown has an above-average selection. Drop me a line if you need any further specifics or have any questions. Andrew Moore Richmond, Virginia Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 10:43:56 -0700 From: "Mike Sharp" <rdcpro at hotmail.com> Subject: RE: Hanford in SUMMER?!? Kevin White asks about Hanford, WA Brewpubs "I'll be spending a few weeks this summer in Hanford, Washington. I am seeking information on brewpubs in the area, and perhaps within a couple hours drive of Hanford." My advice is to spend one weekend in Seattle, and the other in Portland! It's much cooler here than Hanford, and there's a plethora of good brewpubs/microbreweries in either place. Hanford? Yuck! ;^). Oh, but while you're there, visit the hopyards in Yakima! Appologies to Hanford afficionados...I'm sure it's packed with great brewpubs! Regards, Mike Sharp Return to table of contents
Date: Tue, 27 May 2003 22:17:13 -0400 From: "K. Gold or G. McLane" <ktgold at umich.edu> Subject: Goin' to Boulder Sorry to add to the already bulging list of "going to be in <enter location>, can anyone recommend a good <enter beery locale>?" emails, but here goes: I'm going to be in Boulder, CO for several days, and Aspen for two days, all next week. Limited time for indulging, SWMBO doesn't like beer (!), got young kids. If I get to ONE place, in either Boulder or Aspen or there-abouts, where should I go? I might be able to swing New Belgium in Fort Collins, both for the tour and the sampler (they do have a sampler at the end of the tour, don't they!?), and to pick up a La Folie or two...is this worth the haggling, or should I just stick with the Boulder or Aspen options? Thanks in advance! Greg in sunny Ann Arbor, MI. Return to table of contents
