    From what I recall, there were a few screws holding the shelf in position - a couple on either
    side. Once those were gone, I slowly - and with the right amount of trepidation - bent the tray

    A bit late to reply, but in the hopes that someone else stumbles across this thread someday,
    I'll just say that I got the Kenmore 461.98475 on CL today for $50, with the blind hope that
    it'd work.I'd ...

    I hate to bump, but no one answered a follow-up question:Since I'm using an airlock and a
    half-gallon glass chug: Would it harm anything if I took the airlock off and tasted the mix? Or
    should I just ...

  • Posted in thread: Mashing - starting w/ cold water on 12-30-2011 at 11:21 PM
    Dunno. Going out on a limb here, but starting with cold(er) water would give you a chance to at
    least get some maltase/dextrinase/glucanase/etc. activity going, wouldn't it? Not significant,
    since I t...

    Just recently tried a sixer (cans) of Upslope Brown Ale after a day on the slopes in Colorado.
    It's like 6.7% and more roasty than many brown ales and I REALLY liked it.Yup, I had their
    Brown not too ...

    It's been a bit warmer than usual here in Colorado and after finally getting around to cutting
    back my dead bines (they'd been yellow/browning for only a couple of weeks) down to the soil in
    the 7.5 g...

    if you want to brew a stout.. just keep it a simple stout. base and one specialty, then screw
    around with your hops.. same idea as a SMaSH.Yeah, that makes sense. I might've been
    overthinking the SMaS...

  • Posted in thread: SMaSH Stout? on 11-16-2010 at 08:28 PM
    Fair enough point.I guess the point of it all would be trying to see the line between what
    distinguishes a stout from just an ordinary SMaSH recipe made with any-other darkened grain;
    that is, if a si...

    Going on the point lowlife made, a partially non-roasted + partially roasted bill - even if the
    same grain - would not be a SMaSH, that pretty much rules it out, I guess.Typically, the
    roasted grains ...

    I wasn't sure which forum to stick this question under, and it might be a silly question in
    general, but has anyone done/heard of/drank a SMaSH stout? I searched the site but didn't find
    any stout rec...
