---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 5 May 2004 08:21:12 -0400 From: Nathaniel Lansing <delbrew at compuserve.com> Subject: re: 40C rest_no_math error -S said >>it's just an unsupported opinion until you provide evidence >> to refute my points. Not opinion, you need to read the text accurately. The only typo I see is where it says "16l (5.2gallon)" that should read 4.2 gallon; but it remains that 16l will raise 10 kg grist as described. When reading technical material one needs to pay close attention to experiment set-up and methods along with data as presented. from AoBT pg.26..."We used a 50 liter pilot system, however, the data have been normalized for 1-barrel an 1-hectoliter for convenience... ...Anticipating an approximate 65% yield, we used an _equivalent_(emphasis mine) of 50 pounds of malt for the 1-barrel batch and 20 kilograms for the 1-hectoliter batch. The total water used exceeded the batch size by a factor of 1.33, half of which was used in the mash and the other half was used for the sparge." batch size-50 liter mash+sparge water=66.5 liter mash water- 33 liter/72.6 lb grist -10 kg/22 lb starting at 104F (40C)mash rest with 17 liter(37.4 lb) water & 10 kg (22 lb) we have {(22 x .38) + 37.4} x 104= 4759 btu at 1st rest adding 16l ( 35 lb) water at 210F =7350 btu added with the infusion 12109 total btu in system with 80.7 lb total mash mass 12109btu/80.7lb=150 F heat potential allowing for 10F heat loss in tun mass to reach 140F.

In Cleveland I'm not sure of the brewpubs but there is a really cool place at Independence, OH about 8 mi south of downtown right along I-71. A restaurant called the winkin-lizzard. Great selection of brews many locals and just a fun place to hang out. Also not far off of the same exit is a Rock bottom brewery, you may have to ask directions to get to it. In Pittsburgh, Penn is a really cool place, old world charm here. I have not been to the Church Brew works, but everyone I talk to says it's cool. The brewery is built in an old catholic church complete with many original furnishings. Along the way to Philly not far off the turnpike (Irwin Exit) along route 30 east (about 15mi. is Greensburg, PA home to Red Star Brewing. This also is a really neat place with good food and beer selection. It is located in an old Train Station that has been completely remodeled. The other half of the station is still active as an Amtrak Stop. If you elect to stop here you can continue on route 30 east to route 219 south and get back on the turnpike at Somerset, my home town and continue east on I76 to Philadelphia. If you have loads of time (yea right) and elect to go to Harrisburg, off turnpike at Carlisle and up route 81N you can find Appalachian Brewing. I have found a real good source of travel info such as this to be pubcrawler.com. Have a great trip and enjoy the brews!!!!!!!! Kevin Miller Wheeler Brothers Inc.

Date: Wed, 5 May 2004 10:20:23 -0400 From: FLJohnson at portbridge.com Subject: Beer in Pittsburgh Marc asks about beer places in Pittsburgh. I'm sure there are some locals that can write a book comparing the brewpubs and other watering holes there. One of my very favorites is Sharp Edge Beer Emporium at 302 S. Saint Clair. Not much to look at, but the selection of Belgians is awesome. (You could spend a weekend in this place and not drink all the Belgians.) Long wall of taps with beers from everywhere and probably hundreds of beers in the bottle. Just incredible! Fred L Johnson Apex, North Carolina, USA Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 5 May 2004 14:41:38 -0400 From: "John McGowan" <jjm1 at comcast.net> Subject: Old Danstar Yeasts I have been given some Danstar Manchester, Nottingham, and Windsor yeasts with expiration dates of 11/98, 03/99, and 04/99 respectfully. What is the likelihood of these yeasts still being viable? Any rehydration recommendations to build these up if they are viable? I was thinking or rehydrating in 1.020 wort directly. Any other suggestions? TIA John McGowan Hopewell, New Jersey Return to table of contents

Date: Wed, 5 May 2004 20:04:47 -0400 (EDT) From: Pat Babcock <pbabcock at hbd.org> Subject: Changes afoot... Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager... Several changes afoot. First, we're expanding the network, requiring a reassignment of IP addresses (ie: I gotta reconfig all machines, and rewrite DNS). This will cause about four hours of inaccesibility once implemented as they change our IP Address block. But wait, there's more! In order to accomplish this cleanly, I've got to resolve the memore segmentation errors being flung by the brew server. I think I have a suitable "donor" machine for memory; however, all bets are off. This little bit of surgery has teh potential to pull the HBD down for longer than just a few hours (and I may forego and manually rewrite all of the configuration files...) In any case, if the HBD drops offline for a little while in the near future, you will know what's going on. (For those hoseted on Newbrew and the BabsTech server, this will impact you as well - same namespace) Always seems to be this time of year for this stuff, doesn't it? - -- - God bless America!
