Well, I'm not sure. You don't say, but did you cool your sample before measuring the OG? If you
measured at 175°F, a 1.012 reading would be something like 1.039 corrected. You're not clear on

I have a similar story. I brewed an Octane IPA from a Midwest kit and then hurt my back. I
wasn't able to lift, move or anything for a couple months. My beer sat in the fermenter for
16-weeks on the y...

I usually cook Salmon fillets (less than 1" thick) for about 15-20 minutes at maybe 400°F. But,

It's funny that this is a Toyota. Either the guy just has his foot buried in the carpet

For what it's worth, I'm using Wyeast 1272 in this beer. I'm over 12% now (somewhere below

almost all their ye...

Considering the residential home pressure cookers you can buy at Wal-Mart are 15psi, it's
pretty damn unlikely A: you're going to "blow up" your house, and B: insurance would have an

I'd say the more important thing that even the film (even though they are linked) is to get a
fast lens. 1.8 minimum and 1.4 if you've got one. That will take full advantage of the fast

Yeah, sorry. I don't mind the "guugle" recommendation, but that stupid script that fills in
Google for you drives me crazy. I struggled to find suppliers here in France when I moved here
about 1 1/2 y...

I had the same problem in Paris. I guess the people recommending Google assume that everyone
spells "Home Brew supplies" the same everywhere in the world.I have had great luck with
Brouwland. They are...
