Brewing Notes

tags: beer, brew

I spend a bit of time brewing beer for friends and family. There's nothing worse than finding beer recipes on the Net with little or no commentary on them. I always see these "cake mixes" and wonder: Why is the recipe formulated that way? Why this hop? Why that malt? How did the batch come out? How can it be improved? So, I'm posting some of my favorite recipes with the stories and rationale behind them. I hope you find it not boring enough that ...

I was fed up with the lack of good open source beer software, so I thought I would make a small application that would do all the calculations for me. Before long, the application had over 10,000 lines, and at that point, I figured that I would just put it up on Sourceforge so that all the work I spent on it could be shared.

From philly.com: Can do- craft-beer makers kicking glass, going metal. I’m so excited about this. Old Chub and Dale’s Pale Ale from Colorado pretty much started it with their wide distribution, and I’m proud that Sly Fox from here in PA is a close second at least here– I’m not sure how far they’re distributed.

Programming

After a long day at work of arduous programming, i come home to do what? Yes more programming. But wait there's a difference. At home, i can sip my beer while waiting for code to compile.

At work today i was able to take the Tiger dataset and draw a map. Tiger comes with only line data, ie. only one dimensional. However for each chain of points there are attributes referring to adjacent polygons. Using tigerpoly.py in the GDAL project i was able to construct the 2 dimensional polygons.

All that data was inserted into a PostgreSQL database with PostGIS installed. PostGIS and GDAL needed a couple patches. Then i wrote a Java program to grab the data using JDBC and drew it using AWT. Sure Java2D is better, but i'm not sure i need it. After all i'm just drawing lines and polygons. Sheesh.

I'm guessing all map data comes from the same source. The Census Bureau. Therefore, even Google (eventually) gets their data from Tiger. How is it different? Well (1) the roads have width proportional to the number of lanes, (2) all the corners are rounded, and (3) their roads are labelled. Those are the major differences in appearance. As for differences in feel, don't get me started.

And on a side note, it's been so long that i almost forgot my password to my own website. Back to dinner (Otter Creek Alpine Ale).

Pondering beer

I actually wrote a lot more, but I guess those parts were not as interesting=) I think my favorite was the rare voss. I really enjoyed Michel and Laurents stories about the history behind the beer, the process of making it, and various anecdotes of events that occur in their day to day lives of the business of beer.
parent post: Belgian Beer Tasting
notify me: yes

was awesome!

Loved the Belgian beer tasting at Brickskeller.

Had a blast at this beer tasting! I actually love Duvel and thought it was yummy. Belgian wittes are my favorite and that Ommegang one hit the spot. Wittes are generally a summer beer and have a very light, refreshing taste as they're brewed with coriander and orange peel.

Really enjoyed meeting and hearing from the Duvel and Ommegang owners who shared with us their beer passion and lots of stories. As the evening went on, I forgot most of the stories but remember the frothy goodness of each beer we sampled.

Left my tasting sheet at the bar in my drunken stupor so my comments are lost forever but glad Mark's thoughts have been shared. Mmmm, beer! --Dana

Belgian Beer Tasting

I went to my second Meet in DC event with Mark to a Belgian beer tasting at the Brickskeller.

The event was hosted by Duvel and Ommegang. Duvel owns Ommegang. The CEO of Duvel and president of Ommegang where there speaking about their beers.

I didn't like the Duvel. It was much too sweet and alcoholic. It reminded me of mead.

Ommegang brought several beers, including Rare Vos (sly fox), Witte, Hennepin, and the Three Philosophers. In addition they brought an Aged Hennepin, which is technically the same as Hennepin, but we all agreed it was better. The Rare Vos was medium dark. The Witte was wheaty, which i enjoy. The Hennepin smelled great. And the Three Philosophers was creamy with a small frothy head.

Mark, i have your tasting sheet. He doesn't have a web site yet, so i will convey what he wrote.

Do I have a buzzz or does this taste good; low tolerance; Ha Ha I forgot to write something for this one because I can't tell the difference; Dare I say pungent. I don't kow if it is, but I like the word pungent.

Thank you Mark for your insightful discourse on beer.
