Hey guys. Real quick. I'm looking to put together an order within the next week or two to replenish some stock and get some materials to put together my spring (and most likely summer) kits. I know the idea was thrown out there for everyone in the group to brew a batch using the same recipe to compare results. If this is something you are all still interested in doing, I was hoping that you all could possibly collaborate on line on a recipe and I could lump that into my upcoming order. Shipping and and receiving on this stuff is kind of a bear and I'd like to limit the frequency of my orders. If I get it in within the next couple weeks, I think I could have the kits put together and ready to rock for the next meeting. Please let me know if you all think this would be possible. Thanks. -JD
What does everyone like? I'd love to do an IPA, but I know a few of our people just don't care for IPA's. A Witbier?
heavy flavors like stouts, porters, IPAs will all cover over the brewing process effects to an extent. If you're going to tasting differences, something clean works best. Are these kits/extract? If it's a witbier would we be provided spices? yeast strain? (I myself like using the Alagash White strain)
Hoppy Easter to all!
JD, what are the kits you have? I guess we can create one if we are ordering them, but I figures we'd begin with one of yours if that works. I think there was a Black IPA and a stout? I've never brewed a witbeir, but am good with that as well. Another option is a Scottish 60 or 70 Schilling. Opinions?
Chris, all I have right now on hand are 2 Oatmeal Stout Kits, 1 Black IPA, and 1 Hoppy New Year. If you wanted to roll with one of my recipes, that's totally fine by me. I still have to order more product, and soon. I'm just trying to avoid making more orders than necessary to keep things cost/hassle effective for the business. Just looking to get a consensus on what you guys want to do and figure out what/how much I need to order. If it makes more sense for you all to author a recipe at the next meeting that is fine too, but it'll be a bit more of a turn around to get the kits together. Possibly, to make it worth it for all, you guys can collaborate on 2 or 3 recipes that you want to run this kind of experiment on and I can order ingredients for all of them. Just let me know as I'm looking to put in the order for my spring kits in the next week or so.
To make things easier from a timing perspective, we can possibly use Jamil's book for a recipe, maybe tweak it to our likes. At least get a start for a discussion next meeting.
OK, That sounds good. Why doesn't someone find a recipe and send it out via the malters group email (as to not clog CTBeerTrail with recipes) and we can do a quick vote. We only have a week to get this settled it sounds.
I have a technical question. I put my IPA into the fridge for a cold shock to get the particles to settle. My question is should I rack it again (3rd time) clean the keg that it it currently in and then carbonate it or should I just carbonate it and try to disturb it? Suggestions?
