Beer Brewing Stories

Postby FishyMack » Wed Dec 5, 2012 8:10 pm

Johnny Flash suggested that Conan the Brewbarian tell some brewing stories. Here's one:

The first time I made a fruit beer, I made an American Wheat. When I racked (siphoned) the beer to the secondary fermenting carboy, I did so on top of 14 lbs. of cherries that I had picked, at about 9pm. The next morning I went down to check it out and it was actively fermenting again! Before I could do anything, my wife said, "Let's go!" as we were taking the kids to SeaBreeze. I figured I could put on a blow off hose when we got home. Well, the day at SeaBreeze was a long one, we ate dinner, got the kids to bed, and finally I got a chance to check out my fruit beer again at 9pm, 24 hours later. The airlock on top of the carboy was still, it was plugged with cherry parts. So, I carefully wiggled the bung on top and POW! I was instantly covered in cherries and beer! Good thing it was down in the basement in the old cistern as it was summertime. If that had happened during the winter when I ferment in the kitchen, my brewing days would have been over.

Yes Johnny, Conan the Grammarian likes your post. Conan the Brewbarian has another story:

In 2007 I bought a case of Sam Adams Triple Bock. This beer was made in 1997 at 17% ABV and comes in 9 oz. cobalt blue bottles with a cork. After sharing a bottle (via sipping out of brandy glasses) with my brother I noticed that there was sediment in the bottle, meaning there was 10 year old yeast in the bottle that withstood high alcohol. I made a starter (tiny batch of beer), used it to swish out the bottle, and put the yeast and starter in an Erlenmeyer flask which I put on my home made stir plate, made from a computer fan and a hard drive magnet. After 12 hours I took it off the stir plate, put in a bung with airlock, and shouted, "It's Alive!" I proceeded to brew a big beer with concentrated maple sap as an additional ferment-able and wound up with a beer that was 12.5% ABV. A beer of that strength is known as a Barley Wine. I called it "Dr. Bockenstein's Monster". Now I repeat that process every year. Anybody want to try one?

I guess no one in the club is interested in trying this year's Dr. Bockenstein's Monster. Your loss, my gain. :thumbup:

Well at least someone is interested, thanks guys. Actually, it will be a couple months before this year's Dr. Bockenstein's Monster is ready, it is still in the Primary. I started another beer that is going to be even BIGGER. You two guys get first tries. :clap: :crazy:

I finally racked Dr. Bockenstein's Gluten Free Monster to the Secondary ferment-er last week and it was 11.25% ABV. I have another beer, #243, that is at 11%. Both of these will be ready this summer (big beers take a long time to age properly). :P

My 2 big beers are ready, and they are gluten-free! How about we get together for another one-disc challenge? I will bring big beers to try, and perhaps give to the winner! Ed, you are the longest term one-discer so when would you like to play at Churchville? For those who have never done this, the only rule is choose one disc and that is all you can use, which is why we do it at Churchville, tough to lose a disc. We have also done a "Buzzz-Off" at Parma, and an approach-only and a putter-only at Sawyer Park.

Okay, let's make it Tuesday, June 25 at 4:30 PM at Churchville. Bring one disc and a mini. And your thirst if you'd like to try my home made brews or award-winning hard cider or chokecherry wine or maple wine.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I did, once. I entered an American Pale Ale, which won First Place for American Ales and went on to Second Place Best of Show. And what did I take home? A ribbon and a medal. That's it. The home brew club I am in, www.unyha.com , gives away ribbons plus over $3000 in prizes! I have many ribbons.

My last year's Dr. Bockenstein's Monster is long gone. I just started up another batch, which will be stronger than ever! The original gravity was 1.124, for those who know what that means! I also have a 10% beer on hand now that is very good.

Watch the forums, in a few weeks I will post another One Disc Challenge and once again share my home made beverages, which includes beer, maple wine, cherry wine, choke-cherry wine, blended fruit wine, hard cider and mead.
