    I always take it off the burner and haul it outside (unless the weather is really bad). The
    run-off from the chiller goes on the garden.

    If I'm brewing a high-gravity beer, I generally brew a lower-gravity beer first and pitch the

    Approximately 13 years. I bleach them occasionally. Lids don't last as long though.

    We are having our 3rd Annual Orphan's Thanksgiving. I did the easy stuff, a turkey and a pot of
    gravy. Blackberry cider, a Wheat and a Bière de Garde on tap.

  • Posted in thread: is it true that US-05 yeast is not 100% pure? on 11-19-2013 at 03:33 AM
    It's a little like zero Calorie foods, if the other cells are below a given level, you could
    call the culture pure as White Labs does. Or you could just give the numbers, which is what
    Fermentis does....

    You'll need 2-3 lbs of propane per batch.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!" "I would like to die on Mars, just not on impact." Elon Musk

George Carlin was a great comedian, but a horrible statistician. What he should have said was:
"Just think of how stupid the MEDIAN person is..."
