  • How / Why did I get started homebrewing? Easy: It was the wife. I've been making home-made soft drinks since High School (Root Beer, Ginger Ale -- that sort of thing), and have been going pretty strong ever since in the soda world. But, SWMBO made the observations that 1) I was forty-two years old and 2) I needed to grow up and 'Brew something real'. She then presented me with a gift-certificate to the nearby LHBS, and I've been here ever since.

    Brief rant about inconsequential bull****: Why do so many people insist on referring to Belgian
    beers as "Belgium" beers?" Nobody seems to have trouble with calling English ales "England
    ales." What i...

    While you're at it, what's with the "Canada goose?" That always sounds ridiculous. It should
    really be Canadian goose. And they crap everywhere. Boo!They're Canadian Geese only if they

    I believe that a kilogram of ice yields a liter of water.That's the definition of litre. 1kg
    H2O is exactly 1 litre (at a temperature of 4C, and standard pressure). That's one of the
    things that makes...

    It's hard to measure how much water you will get from the ice, Not at all.Water weighs 8.3
    pounds per gallon. Frozen, it weighs exactly the same; you don't lose or gain mass by changing
    phase. Density...

    Packing for a cross-country move.Filled out the survey once last week -- afraid to fill it out
    again because it would skew the stats with my AwesomeFish™.
