    Haha yeah, nothing to be surprised with about the prices.I'm still not sure about what route to
    go. I just found out about the glycol so I kinda have some new ideas. I have no old A/C, never
    used it a...

    Yeah you really need to think about energy efficiency there. Get your room heat stable then use
    cooling coils wrapped around the fermenter, or in the fermenter and pump cold water or better
    yet, glyco...

  • Posted in thread: Grain hopper size??? on 08-12-2015 at 04:11 AM
    My original setup for my MM3 included a hopper I built out of wood. Now it has the MM3 hopper
    with extension, much better setup IMO, and holds 27 lbs.

    What are wanting? Something dry processed and fruity? Bassy and smooth? Acidic and intense?I'm
    not usually a huge fan of dry process, all too often it smells like over ripe bananas to me and
    I'm not a...

  • Posted in thread: The Home Made Pizza Thread on 08-02-2015 at 03:36 AM
    There were a lot of criticisms about the first uuni making pizzas with a significantly
    underdone bottom. I didn't like that the only video I've seen of the uuni2 had the guy look at
    the bottom and say...

    Time for a new coffee order. Anyone thinking SMs has anything interesting at the moment?

    I think it was the quality of the glass that was the issue. Getting a high quality flask that
    size is going to be an expensive proposition though. Meanwhile a stainless stock pot from
    target or Walmar...

    That is roughly one thirdly a quarter the yeast you would want to pitch for that gravity. Under
    pitching means the yeast will have to go through a lot of reproduction cycles to get the cell
    count up. ...

    I wouldn't worry much about bottle bombs, it'd have to get pretty hot for that. However, heat
    is not beers friend...just means you will have to drink it sooner than later.

    Could be an underpitch of yeast, low ferment temps, insufficient nutrients for the
    yeast...really could be a lot of things. Provide more details of your cider so we can help dial
    into the culprit.

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
