Isn't band-aid caused by oxygenation? If so, maybe you're causing the flavor somewhere
pre-fermentation (hot transfer, etc.) and it's only manifesting in the fermenter. You mentioned
the first couple ...

I received an email the other day about Saranac (in the Adirondacks) presenting work at a gas
chromatograph conference in Albany soon. They're using GC's to determine DMS and a swath of
Posted in thread: Burners on craigslist? on 05-02-2013 at 11:42 AM
I started brewing stovetop, then moved to an Sp10 (the 'fish fryer' from Bayou Classic). I went
through a 20lb. tank every two brews and ran out just at flame-out on my third brew with it one

I do currently since it's cold out. I've found I end up with much less trub in the keg (none,
pretty much) and the yeast cake is much easier to rack off of while kegging. I'm a convert for
now on when...

little orange juic...

We've had some trouble with all three carriers, but generally we receive our packages with no
problem. In our old apartment in a marginal part of town FedEx wouldn't leave the package at
the door. We'...
Posted in thread: Any beer drinkers like spirits? on 03-11-2013 at 11:41 PM
My so-far favorite bourbon is Woodford Reserve, though it's out of my price range for
day-to-day enjoyment. That duty is handed to McKenzie's or Buffalo Trace usually, and if we're
really poor that we...

Here's mine...not quite as classy as some of yours, but it works. The left is a dragon on some
1/8" plywood, glued to a candlestick holder- all from Michael's. The center is my first attempt
