Posted in thread: Way Off Topic - Turkey Frying on 03-31-2016 at 01:14 PM
I used to fry turkeys a lot. It can be a dangerous thing. Last time I did the tongs broke
lowering the bird into the dryer and splashed hot oil on my wife and myself. Will never do that
again. If you ...

Last thanksgiving.Watch some turkey frying videos and read the safety tips. Alton Brown has a

London III is a high flocculator and low attenuator. Attempting to rouse the yeast might be
your best option.I always lower my mash temp when I use it unless I'm shooting for residual

Keep the recipe simple, the yeast clean flavored, skip the D-rest, skip a cold crash, and go

it. The option...

One of the sacrifices I had to make during our move was the fermentation chamber. I had an
upright freezer I could ferment 2x 5 gallon brews in. But our new condo has half the square
footage of our ol...

I've never been one to get all that hung up on money. Granted, the fact that I've been
regularly promoted and gotten raises tends to help. But right now I know I'm a bit underpaid
for my title (a lot ...
