---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2003 14:19:46 -0500 (CDT) From: brewinfo at xnet.com (BrewInfo) Subject: orval/dependence/beginner needs My comments on posts from a few weeks ago... Troy "discovered" Orval and wants to make some. Well, the key is the yeast. Many years ago, I bought a case of Orval (12 bottles) and tried to culture yeast from each of the bottles. Most didn't do anything. Several did, but it didn't smell like Orval. *ONE* out of 12 bottles resulted in a starter that smelled just like Orval, so I used that to make a 5-gallon batch. I don't have the exact recipe, but I recall that it was mostly Pale Ale malt, with maybe 5% light crystal and 10 to 15% white table sugar. I used Styrian Goldings because I had read that these are the hops they use. Hop rate is high for Belgian beers... something like 30IBUs. It was dryhopped with Styrians, just like the original. Those who tasted it were shocked how close I got. Again, the key is the yeast and you have to just keep trying until you get the right live culture. ****** David gives the diagnostic criteria for Substance Dependence. According to it, thanks to 1b, 5, 6, and 7, I find that I'm clinically dependent on my children (especially #6): (6) important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of substance use ****** Another Dave wrote: >Dave asked a question about drilling holes into a small Kenmore >refrigerator. I have two things to add to the discussion: 1. if you drill holes in the fridge, seal the holes well from both sides so that moisture does not collect in the insulation between the double walls. Besides this rendering the insulation nearly useless, it also makes it a great place for moulds to grow and infect your brewery. 2. I found that even with the faucets on the INSIDE of the fridge, I got mould growing in the faucet unless I used them every day or two. If I didn't use a faucet for a week and a half, the first use would shoot a slug of mould into the glass (ick!). If you mount the faucets on the *outside* of the fridge, I would imagine that you would get even faster mold growth. I would encourage putting the faucets *inside* the fridge to at least slow the mould growth. ****** John writes: >$30.00 as boiling kettle and primary fermenter. What other hints, tips or >pieces of equipment not listed in BETTER BEER would be helpful for a brand >new brewer? Get a better homebrewing book. Reese's Better Beer and How to Brew It is written using outdated techniques and based upon limited ingredients of compromised quality (i.e. old, stale hops). Beer is very forgiving and you can make drinkable beer from the worst recipe and procedures, but better instruction and recipe will assure the brewer will get better initial results. I have a preference for a particular book, but will leave it to others to suggest it. As for other good beginner books, although I've never read his full-length book, I've seen John Palmer's "freebie" instructions and they are very good. I would feel very comfortable recommending his book, sight unseen. Al. Al Korzonas www.brewinfo.com Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2003 14:05:41 -0700 From: "Steve Dale-Johnson" <sdalejohnson at hotmail.com> Subject: Hefe yeasts, Westmalle/trappists A slow reply to the hefe yeast thread a while back as my "solution" was still in secondary and waiting to be tasted. I, too found the Wyeast 3068 (Weihenstephan Hefeweizen) a little too funky, yet the 1010 american wheat _way_ too bland. Just tapped a keg of a wheat done with Wyeast 3333 German Wheat, and this one's just about bang on by my taste. Could be a _little_ more tart, but really, really nice especially in the hot weather. I would highly recommend giving this one a try. On a semi-related (funky beers) topic, I was disappointed to finally find some trappist beer locally (westmalle tripel), and find that while it was a very complex beer with many flavours present, most of them were not pleasant. My wife, who will taste anything and likes the funky beers [gueze, framboise, the belgian style beers by Quebec's Unibroue and of course my wheats ;)] and who has a perhaps better palate than I, pinned them as leather, wet cardboard and the stale toast 'champagne' flavor. The beer was not lightstruck and had a beautiful thick white head. Is this par for the style, or just not one of the better Trappist beers??

Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2003 16:06:21 -0500 (CDT) From: brewinfo at xnet.com (BrewInfo) Subject: SUV's/beer on airplanes/Alt recipe/water and attenuation/Rush There are a great many experts on HBD in a wide range of fields. I would be surprised if someone couldn't confirm or deny this claim that I once heard somewhere: "Even if you drove your car 100's of thousands of miles, it will have used less energy in gasoline than was used to originally build the car." If this statement is true, then the gas-guzzler tax and the arguments of all the people who say we shouldn't drive SUV's because of their fuel consumption go out the window. No? ****** Regarding beer on airplanes, and shipment of beer in general, it is far more important to protect the beers from *each* other than from external impact. Both are important, but in a hard-sider, the bottles banging together are a far greater risk of breakage. I never had trouble bringing beer back from Europe but haven't had as much need to travel with beer within the US, so I don't have that much experience with domestic flights and beer. In fact, I've never gotten a raised eyebrow leaving Britain or Belgium with a bunch of beer... usually the comment is something like "so you like our beer?" along with a nod and a smile. ****** Thomas asks which Weyermann's Munich I used for my Alt, 1 or 2. Here in the US, the bags were labeled "Light Munich" and "Dark Munich." The only Weyermann's that had numbers were the Carafa which was labeled "I," "II," and "III," if I recall correctly. Make sure you aren't mistaking Carafa (which is a roasted malt and does not have sufficient enzymes to convert itself) for Munich. I used the Munich Dark. The mash temperature was around 156F and the target colour is 13 to 19 SRM. I was going to convert this to EBC for you, but my conversion formula specifically says that it only works for an SRM of 4 or below. I was going to give a similarly coloured commercial beer, but am not familiar enough with Australian beers to give a local example for you. The beer should be decidedly dark, but not black. It should be, perhaps, in the range of moderate-strength tea: a deep, copper or mahogany colour. ****** Dave asks if water can affect attenuation. His water was simply put through a 0.5micron carbon filter. Steve Alexander wrote me (and perhaps posted here too) that his post, which I referenced, in which he said that a carbon filter could reduce calcium and other ions, was *specifically* regarding Brita filters which *also* have an ion-exchange media that works similarly to a sodium-based softener, replacing calcium with (probably) sodium. If your filter is doing the same thing, then I can understand why your attenuation would change dramatically. Firstly, low calcium water will result in weaker enzyme activity, which will result in less fermentable beer. Secondly, low-calcium/medium- sodium wort is a less-than-ideal place for yeast to live. So, not only might you be making less-fermentable wort, but also making it difficult on your yeast. Adding some calcium in the form of calcium sulfate or calcium chloride, after filtering, may help. I would try that. ****** William mentions Rush. I happen to be wearing a Vapor Trails shirt as I type this. I think that not only are they a great source for beer names, but also, the complexity of their music make it very appropriate for accompanying both brewing and consumption of our finished product.

"This site is dedicated to the thousands of men and women in America who have been relegated to the status of children, regardless of their age, by the do-gooders of society who believe that merely because a person has no home they should therefore not be allowed to drink beer." http://www.beerforthehomeless.com/index.htm This brought to mind the saying that goes something like: "Give a man a fish and he eats for one day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for the rest of his life." Perhaps there should be a "homeless brew club?" (Donated ingredients, of course...)

I understand and expected a certain amount of that. >once the iodine is gone, the remaining solution is actually >a good medium for bacteria to grow in.

The active ingredient doesn't evaporate >and the solution doesn't stain (its clear). If read the ingredients right, $tar $an is basically two kinds of acid. Iodophor is Iodine (small amount) and an acid (about 40%). Where is the nutrient (or whatever) that makes it worse than plain water? Is it just because the PH is "out of whack"? Granted, "clear" and "doesn't evaporate" are attractive, but bleach is less expensive. I will, however, drain and re-fill the water. (Did that presenter work for Five $tar?) - -------------- Dave Burley writes: >I'd start with potassium metabisulfite available from homebrew/winemaking shops. >Using it with a little tartaric or whatever mild acid would help. I will try that and let everyone know how it turns out. I have also received suggestions for ammonia and distilled white vinegar. Anyone else? There are plenty of spots left! >Painting over it won't help as it will sublime to the surface. I received an email from another reader who said that painting was my only hope. I have opted to make painting the "last resort" and try the suggestions for cleaning solutions first. If you're right, Dave, I don't want to paint it then have to clean it anyway. >Use bleach to keep the nasties out of the water. Just keep the pH around 7.4 >to 7.8 for best results and chlorine around 3-10 ppm. Use your pool test kit. You are starting to sound like the guy at the pool store. If it works in my pool, why not! Sounds like good advice. BTW: How did you know I had a pool? Oh yeah, everyone here has a pool...and an air conditioner. - --------------- Perhaps the simplest solution would be to just name the brewery according the color scheme and ignore it.

Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 17:18:55 +1000 From: Grant Family <grants at netspace.net.au> Subject: fundamentals of malting g'day, I may have missed something, but why is it necessary to kiln the barley after it has started germinating. The way it was explained to me, the function of kilning is to stop the enzymes working until they are needed (in the mash). So, my question is this: wouldn't it be possible to create a super-light (coloured) malt by mashing it as soon as it has begun to germinate - effectively skipping the kilning step? It's not relevant, as I am an all-extract brewer at the moment, by I was just philosophising... thanks Stuart Grant Hobart, Tasmania (the little island off the bottom of Australia :) Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 09:04:11 -0400 From: "David Houseman" <david.houseman at verizon.net> Subject: RE: Keg Lid Leaks Mark's suggestions were right on target. One other. I've found that it seems that none of my many kegs really have interchangeable parts. Corny's, Firestone, and other brands. Different models perhaps. Different years of manufacture. I pretty much keep all the parts from one keg with that keg. I've found that when I've swapped lids I've had leaks. Just a different enough shape of the lid and the opening that it wouldn't seal quite right. So try interchanging them if you have mixed them up. Dave Houseman Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 11:10:27 -0400 From: "Pete Calinski" <pjcalinski at adelphia.net> Subject: RE: Raising Children With Beer Well, I have four children. Two in their late twenties and two exactly twenty. All of them have always had permission to drink in my presence. They have all helped me homebrew before they "got too old" for the old man's stuff. I can site numerous examples of how responsible they are about drinking. Too numerous to list. I also have numerous examples of children that were raised in an "alcohol free" environment that abuse alcohol, in some cases resulting in their death. Of course, this doesn't prove anything but doesn't it stand to reason that a proper, controlled introduction to something is more likely to be successful than just dumping them into it? It works that way for driving, hunting, boating, and any other endeavor I can think of. Just my $0.02.

Here's one: Schamankerl Stube, Potomac Street at Antieitam, Hagerstown, MD Nice German beer selection, too. You should call ahead 24 hours to reserve your Haxe, since it's that special-cut thing.

Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 13:33:52 -0500 From: "Dan McFeeley" <mcfeeley at keynet.net> Subject: Re: Raising Children with Beer Thought I'd add a little more to this thread -- In general, research has shown that a number of cultures have lower rates of alcoholism as compared to others. Some of the factors that have been looked at as contributing a positive quality are the sacral aspect of wine in Judaism, or the Italian habit of mixing a little red with coffee and giving that to children (I'm at work right now, can't give specific citations, so you guys will have to take this as anecdotal evidence, at best). What seems to help most is a healthy attitude toward alcoholic beverages, seeing them as a beverage enjoyed as just that, not as a drug. Robert Mondavi's biography, _Harvests of Joy_ brings this out when he compares his Italian upbringing with his first encounters with US culture regarding alcohol. For Mondavi, wine was joy, celebration, and a natural part of good food, to be enjoyed with friends. He was totally dumfounded in college when he saw fellow students getting blasted on hard liquor, for no other purpose than to get drunk. It was completely contrary to what he had been raised with. Close family relationships, with the importance of the meal table as a gathering place hasn't been looked at closely as a factor in apparently alcoholism resistant cultures, to the best of my knowledge, but I would guess that is a strong one. It was certainly a factor in the Italian culture Mondavi grew up with, and was a strong influence in how he developed his winery. I think you can look at homebrewing in the same way, as having the potential for teaching children healthy attitudes toward alcoholic beverages. This is when beer can be appreciated as something flavorful, a part of the table that goes well with different foods, having different styles and a long and interesting history. Read Jeff Renner's Zymurgy article on brewing CAP's, especially the first section recapturing what it was like when CAP's were a part of the US brewing scene, and you'll get a vivid image of how well specific beer styles pair with different foods. Of course, something to keep in mind is that none of the above can be considered as strictly causal. It's never a question of nature v/s nurture; it's a dynamic, and usually highly individualized *relationship* between nature and nurture. And, with all things considered, the individual can; and does make individual choices. Even with the best of upbringing, kids can still make disastrous choices. As parents, we do our best and hope for the best. <><><><><><><><><><> <><><><><><><><> Dan McFeeley Return to table of contents
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 18:07:51 -0700 From: Dion Hollenbeck <hollen at woodsprite.com> Subject: re: Keg Lid Leaks Some very good suggestions have been posted already that I will not duplicate. However, one that no one has mentioned is high pressure. If you do all the things people suggest and still get leaks, try pressurizing for a short while up to 40 to 60 psi and see if the leak disappears. This is usually enough to seat the most recalcitrant lid or poppet. Then once the leak stops, bleed down the pressure to a reasonable level and it will generally stay without leak. If you have a leak at the lid because of a dinged lip, careful use of a soft stick tapped with a hammer can usually straighten it out. And if you have leaks in the poppets, disassemble the poppet from the plug body and use a teeny bit of keg lube. This will generally solve any leaky poppets. Poppets usually leak because they fail to go all the way back in. dion - -- Dion Hollenbeck Email: hollen at woodsprite.com Home Page: http://www.woodsprite.com Brewing Page: http://hbd.org/hollen Return to table of contents

A good test is to drink no alcohol for a month without telling anyone why. The peer pressure to drink is greater than most of us realise. After the first time that I tried this, I cut back on encouraging other people to try my beer. I now offer once, but if they're not keen, so be it. Ant Hayes Johannesburg Return to table of contents

Well, that brings me to something probably unheard of in the annals of the HBD... a second apology!!! And for both apologies to be from me is totally unheard of cause I'm never wrong :-) While the list of member benefits I mentioned wasn't totally complete, there was one glaring omission that prompts this post. I want to apologize to Lallemand, Siebel Institute & our own Rob Moline for failing to mention the Siebel Scholarship. You all know Rob Moline here on the HBD through his alter-ego of Jethro Gump. Rob is a home brew, a pro brewer and a tireless advocate of brewers helping brewers (not to mention being another member of the AHA BOA who's a regular on the HBD). Rob had prevailed on Lallemand to fund a scholarship to Siebel's WBA Concise Course ($2900) as well as $1000 to help with expenses while taking the course. The winner of the scholarship is chosen by drawing at the NHC (though you don't have to be present to win). The odds of winning this are waayyy better than of winning the lottery! Anyhow, I probably suppressed it in my mind cause as a member of the BOA I'm not eligible to enter the drawing, and I'd so like to go!! As Gump has said, Siebel is pretty much Beer Heaven, and this benefit of AHA membership certainly deserves repeated mention. Mark Tumarkin Hogtown Brewers Gainesville, FL Return to table of contents

I have been disowned by the family because of my stand against mass marketed thin beers. I am a homebrewer, and I have spent lots of money on homebrewing equipment. Unfortunately, my daughter needs an operation to transplant a kidney, heart, brain, and liver, and I must part with some of my equipment. I am offering my 20 cornelius kegs, a HERMS system with a 50 gallon capacity, a 20 lb. CO2 tank with manifold and individual regulators for each of 15 connections, 150 feet of tubing for the kegging operation, 15 taps, two converted Sankey kegs for boilers, 2 high-pressure controllable LP burners, a 50 gallon conical fermenter, and much more. All I am asking for this is the sum of $300, which is the down payment I must have for the operation. You will need to give me your bank account number form which I will withdraw the $300, plus a reasonable shipping and handling fee which will appear on your bank statement. I do ask that your account be in good standing, with a minimum of $20,000 US dollars in the account, to show good faith in this transaction. Please reply to 2good2btrue at imasucker.com and I will take care of the rest. Please, serious buyers only. In case there are more than two people interested, I will offer the equipment to the person with the highest balance in their bank account just to be fair. Nathan Return to table of contents
