Not sure yet. I need to drag out my old cooler mash tun and see how big of mash I can fit in there. I've only done 5gal with it but planned on doing 10gal this weekend. I might just end up chickening out and just add lactic acid at kegging.

Yup. Although, mine never seems to make it to the imperial level. I get terrible efficiency using that much grain for a 5 gallon batch. Still damned tasty.

Nice. Imperial or not it will be dangerous.

The sour mash was nice and tart last night. I'm going to give it another 12 hours so it will have just a bit more bite this year. I'm a bit concerned about the BVIP. I had a brain fart and pitched warm (76F). Cranked the AC down overnight and put it in the basement. Oh well. We shall see.

Nice. I'll have some cream ale variations. A vanilla, watermellow, wheat, and straight up. Vanilla is for the beer and food pairing.

 

I brewed it once and thought it went sour and re-brewed. It turned out fine so I have a crap tone of cream ale. Brewed a smoked wheat bock (Aventinas meets Aecht Schlenkerla ) that i might bring if its ready.

Yes, canned seafood is the category. Proof of actual can required.

 

Also, the NOVA club is roasting a whole pig with Solomon (the property owner), everyone is welcome to on Thursday.

 

This just keeps getting better.

I have to admit that the "balls" comp was genius. There was some good food. I will come prepared for canned seafood and can't wait for some crab assholes!

I'm not sure how much they contribute to the flavor in secondary. I only use 1oz of medium toast Hungarian Oak.
