    Can only make 15 gallons every 3 months per state law. :(What they don't know won't hurt them.

  • Posted in thread: BIAB problems...what went wrong on 06-20-2010 at 02:08 PM
    Well, I'm not sure. You don't say, but did you cool your sample before measuring the OG? If you
    measured at 175F, a 1.012 reading would be something like 1.039 corrected. You're not clear on
    that.I h...

    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 400F. But,
    I use Al foil. You might be able to get away with less time and have a more tender dish.

    It's funny that this is a Toyota. Either the guy just has his foot buried in the carpet
    (possible) or he is not pushing on the gas and this is one of those "unintended acceleration"
    cases. But, is is ...

    For what it's worth, I'm using Wyeast 1272 in this beer. I'm over 12% now (somewhere below
    1.026) and it is winding down. Wyeast's website says it will only go to 10% (the same for
    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
    issue with a clai...

    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
    film and let y...

    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...
