Re: FT: De Dolle Oerbier Reserva

The trades offers I'm getting are for less than ten, which is fine, so if people want to trade for just a couple of these, feel free to contact me.

FT: De Dolle Oerbier Reserva

I just picked up my order from Gleemer. Fabulous beer but I only want a half case (10). So I've got ten to trade. I'd prefer to trade them all to one person. The trade would ideally be, if during the week, in downtown TO; or, if on the weekend, in west end TO. I'd like to trade it for some barley wi...

I think this is quite a handsome bottle. I'd use it. My bench capper caps those euro-cap gueuze bottles problem-free (of course using the right sized bell).

Thanks for the input everyone. I think I'll continue to top them up and leave only about 1 cm of headspace (I checked on the weekend, and I had left a little more space than I remembered), notwithstanding atomyes' injunctions, but will give an update if there are any complications down the line.

But why leave that much headspace? I'm been filling them to within a few millimetres (not centimetres) lately and haven't had a problem yet--but "yet" may be the operative word, so I thought I'd check whether anyone else has had bad experiences with this. If there is no particular concern...

Head Space in Bottles

Is there any reason not to minimize the headspace in the neck of a bottle, filling it to within a millimitre or two from the cap?

I hope you're right, Gary. No harm in letting it sit around in order to find out, so maybe that's what I will do. In the meantime I'm going to be rethinking my approach to conditioning, in part because it's much harder to minimize empty headspace in carboys vs bottles. That and all the chill haze is...

(Sorry I know this is a bit of a sidetrack.) Really? Interesting. So you allowed all post-fermentation conditioning to take place in the bottle then, right? Did that work okay for high gravity beers? I was under the impression that imperial-types did well to have an extended secondary carboy conditi...

Mark, do you bottle condition? If so, do you have any problem, after cold conditioning, with insuffucient residual yeast in the beer to carbonate it?

Thanks a lot everyone. I think my trip is going to be quite a success thanks to these suggestions (as if Bob alone isn't already a guarantee of that!).

Rochester Beer Store?

Can anyone tell me of a good store to buy beer in Rochester? I'm heading down to see Bob Dylan on Saturday and sure would like to pick up some US micobrew treats while I'm over there. Thanks.

I took a pass. Good call, sstackho, I wish I'd done the same. Instead I rushed up to Summerhill and bought not one but two packs of these. Optimistic that the altered alcohol contents implied a re-working of the recipes, I cracked into a Korrupter last night . . . and had a cloyingly sweet, utterly...

I'm not sure if this was accidental or intentional, but both the Affligem glasses I got last year had etchings in the middle of the bottom of the chalice, from which a pleasing stream of bubbles rises for quite some time after pouring, sustaining the head of whatever you're drinking rather nicely. A...
