Open Office is the quick, easy, and free fix. Then copy everything into a new google doc and
you will have access to it on any computer/tablet anywhere.
Posted in thread: A spice rub in a beer?? on 09-26-2013 at 09:43 PM
Don't rubs usually include a lot of salt? I cannot see how that would be all that good. Why not
instead figure out good beers that pair well with different rubs or BBQ sauce?

Okay, well I guess it would be helpful to know a little more about your setup. What are you

using dry yea...

I like the Cream of Three Crops recipe. Its an easy drinking beer and it would be a good offset

Yes, an initial boil oxidizes the aluminum and makes it safe for boiling. If you are going to
spend the money for a 3.5-4 gallon kettle, honestly, save up the extra few $$ and get a

Posted in thread: Partial boil? on 08-30-2013 at 01:30 PM
I guess a disadvantage is it takes more time to get a full boil going and you need a larger pot
to take that full volume. Plus if its just big enough for a full boil, you risk a boil over on

Posted in thread: Do you buy more beer? on 08-29-2013 at 08:33 PM
I still buy commercial beer, but a lot less then before I started brewing, and with a different
