---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 25 Oct 2005 23:12:31 -0500 From: "Joe Aistrup" <joe_aistrup at msn.com> Subject: Sulfur smell Hi all. I'm normally an ale maker, but I inherited a fridge, and so I decided to try a lager. It is a simple lager, lightly hopped, with a moderate OG of 1.056. I used saflager dry, which I have read good things about. I fermented the beer at 52 degrees for three weeks. My finishing gravity is 1.011. I kegged the beer. The beer tastes great, but it has a strong sulfur nose. Is this a function of the dry yeast? Is there a way to prevent it? Is there a get rid of the sulfur with this batch? Thanks, Joe Aistrup Manhattan, KS Little Apple Brew Crew Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 26 Oct 2005 12:40:16 -0500 (CDT) From: "J. Ben Schafer" <schafer at cs.uni.edu> Subject: Why I love this hobby. So I love the craft of homebrewing for a variety of reasons... I appreciate the variety of beers that I can produce (many of which are VERY hard to get in outdated-beer-law Iowa). I truly _enjoy_ the process of brewing. But most of all, I love the fact that this hobby is "populated" with truly good people. My case in point... In August, I began planning for an 8 day business trip to San Diego. I remembered reading a number of posts from Chad Stevens - a fairly active participant on this list - and noticing that he lived in San Diego. I found his address in the archives and sent him an email asking if he had any recommendations for which breweries/pubs to hit while I was in town. This simple request for recommendations was immediately turned into an invitation to join Chad and 8 or 9 members of the the board from QUAFF at O'Brien's for an evening of drink, merriment, and conversation about one of our favorite topics - BEER. My thanks to Chad and the rest of the group for showing me such wonderful hospitality during my stay in San Diego. Only in homebrewing would the sentence "I'm going to have drinks with a guy I met on the Internet" not seem creepy. Ben PS This is just one more illustration of Jeff's recent request to include your location when you post. I'm glad Chad always included this info! _________________________________________________ J.

Date: Sat, 29 Oct 2005 18:47:28 -0600 From: Bob Devine <bob.devine at worldnet.att.net> Subject: Google map for HBD readers? Suggestion: How about having a HBD reader page with a Google map on hbd.org? Did you ever want to quickly find people near you? Or see which club are close by? For example, here are some links that describe how to build a dynamic map for member locations. http://stuff.rancidbacon.com/gmaps-standalone/ http://www.google.com/apis/maps/ I recognize that there might be problems such as stale info, or somebody using the info for spam. Anybody want to volunteer? I think that there are some folks here who have web development skills. I probably won't be able to do it by myself (I'm waaaay too busy now). There are lots of possibilities for extensions, such as putting homebrew groups in the map, doing regional breakdown of readers, and maybe if HBD.org needs some extra bucks, could add regional ads.

Date: Sat, 29 Oct 2005 20:11:12 -0600 From: "eric" <zeee1 at nebonet.com> Subject: Immersion chiller stirring and trub mixing? Hello all Last batch I paid attention to moving the immersion chiller around as it cooled the wort, compared to just putting it in the pot and leaving it there. Noticeable difference in water temp outlet by gently moving the chiller through the wort, compared to a minute or 2 after just sitting there. But my question is, how will this affect trub removal? Will gently agitating the chiller noticeably mix the trub? Or should I care that much, using DME? All I usually do is pour the cooled wort into a carboy through a strainer for hop removal, and stop when "the stuff on the bottom" is showing signs of heading for the funnel.
