    I think the real shocker here is that you are openly admitting to reading tmz.com! ;)Wonder if
    there's any truth to this. I could just as easily add gelatin and cold crash if it really is
    bad for you....

    According to a lawsuit filed today against Jillian Michaels, one of the ingredients in her
    weight loss supplements, Irish Moss powder, "causes gastrointestinal ulcers" and is "so toxic
    that it is the ...

    For a bit of a different perspective on this, I'll throw my 2 in and say that I think you
    should just go ahead and make the Mr. Beer kit in the Mr. Beer set. It certainly can't hurt to
    get a bit more...

    Finally bottled this IPA today. It spent a while in the primary. FG came in at 1.010, which was
    right around the 1.009 I was shooting for. Bottling was uneventful. Had to sample the 1/2 cup
    or so that...

    I wouldn't worry too much about the gravity, as extract brews really need pretty vigorous
    stirring to get the wort all blended. Sounds like you had a good first brew, congrats!

    I like my braid just fine. I'm also happy with the 5 gal. cooler, as long as the grain bill is
    no larger than 13-14 pounds. It's pretty cramped in there at that point, and stirring the mash
    properly c...

  • Posted in thread: Why do you homebrew? on 06-28-2010 at 04:22 AM
    Short answer= Because I can.Long explanation= I brew because I enjoy learning things, and
    experiencing things, and I wanted to learn by more than just reading, but by doing. I like
    beer. I wanted to b...

    A sudden change in temp can cause the yeast to "pause". They'll pick back up and be off and
    running soon.

    Mmm, Cajun brew, sounds good to me!I wouldn't think the SS pot would have any probs with
    carrying over tastes from its last contents. If it were seasoned cast iron it would be an
    issue.That looks like...
