Speaking of Pizza n' Beer

Between tours on Saturday afternoons, I used to keep pizza in the hop cooler at the Brooklyn Brewery. One day I thought the pepperoni smelled really good with the intense hop aroma in there, so i took a few Cascades pellets and crumbled them up over a slice or two.

They went really well together. Try it yourselves sometime.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Philly Voted 16th best beer city in the world Woooot!!

All but one of the bars listed in the article are within 5 blocks of my house, and the one that isnt 5 blocks away is about 15 blocks. So yea its a pretty good place to live.

Im suprised though that they didnt make note of the fact that Philadelphia Brew Company and Yards brewery are within a few blocks of all these bars.

RDH, I mentioned to you a few months back about my first brew process, did an all grain recipe, a triple, for some reason. Well its ready and I had a few last night, not bad, I'll post a review in the coming days with photos.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

So far so good on my beer. I figure to bottle Monday or Tuesday. I'm too drunk to post pics now, though.

Northern Libs imo.

I'm not a Phila Brew Co fan. Newbold is ok but I don't care much for the Rowhouse Red or Kenzinger.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

A bar in town has recently offered two draft beers by a brewer named Milliken that were $10 & $11 per pint respectively. I tried both out of curiosity and they were outstanding.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Tried the Magic Hat Blind Faith IPA this weekend.

It is around 6% abv and NOT a hop bomb.

I prefer my IPAs on the hoppier side... not a bad brew but, prolly won't buy again.

It was light and you could definately drink a lot of these in a session.

I just received a few of these in a trade and had my first one the other night. Didnt like it at all. Now, I much prefer American IPAs to the English variety, but I think Goose Island and Brooklyn both have very tasty EIPAs. Blind Faith didnt do it for me at all. Sorry I still have 3 left.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

This weekend I added a collar to my chest freezer. Since coolant lines for freezers wrap around the body, its really dangerous to drill through the side of one. A way to work around this is to add a wooden collar to the freezer, so that you can drill in more taps, a pass-through for a CO2 line, attach a CO2 manifold to it, whatever. Here's a couple before and after pics of the beast.

I made a chest freezer kegerator about 6 months ago. I've never seen a design like yours. Can you explain how you modified the lid? I just added a collar to mine.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

The lid just has a nice slab of oak on it, stained and poly'd. Its attached with some heavy-duty double-sided tape. No idea why I didn't just glue it down with liquid nails, in retrospect.

A lot more info on the collar build here.

Wipeout is awesome... Tricerahops ranks right with it, if not slightly better- drank this on the 4th and I wish I had more.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

This weekend tried:

Three Floyds Dreadnaught

I've wanted to try this forever but just realized I only had to drive to Hudson, WI (25 minutes) to get it. Lived up to the hype. 5/5, world class dipa.

Bell's Expedition Stout

Solid Imperial Stout. 4.5/5

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout

Solid Russian Imperial Stout. 4.5/5

I also had some Alpha King. It is probably my favorite non-imperial pale ale after Furious. 5/5

Per ounce of beer this was a very expensive weekend.
Per ounce of alcohol it was a moderately expensive weekend.
Per health of liver it was probably extremely expensive.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

What makes an IPA a double IPA? An IBU above a certain amount?

Double the malt, double the hops, double the alcohol. Give or take, anyway.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

BEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

OK, some pics from my very first brew:

Getting set up



Aaaaaand, brew!





Sterilize things:





Add hops:



Drain hops and barley (arms belong to my friend, a veteran brewer who helped K and me along):





All Done!



Now we wait. My friend took care of the secondary ferment on his own, so I don't have pics of that. My next pics are of bottling.

Finished beer:



Cleaning bottles (my friend again)





Measure alcohol:



(should be 4-5%)

Drain into new bucket to get rid of yeast cake:



Bottling!



Our first tasting will probably be a week from now.
