  • Posted in thread: Simple collar-style keezer on 09-05-2015 at 02:16 AM
    I found out the hard way a major problem with collars; when the freezer dies, you may not be
    able to find another freezer that fits. My old one was 24x24, all the new ones are a little
    wider and not a...

  • Posted in thread: What are you doing instead of brewing this weekend? on 07-29-2015 at 07:03 PM
    Headed up to Richmond, BC for the Canadian Mensa gathering. I don't see any breweries near the
    hotel, but there's a dozen or so in the area. On the other hand, it is Canada and it's a large
    hotel, so ...

  • Posted in thread: One problem with collars on 06-24-2015 at 05:37 PM
    About a decade ago, I built a keezer based on a 5 cuft chest freezer. I built the collar so it
    was easily removable, knowing that the freezer would die in time. It served me well until last
    winter. So...

    It's a great dashcam, the night recording is better than it looks on the built-in screen. The
    only problem is lousy documentation, but there are a couple online guides by people who have
    explored all ...

    They could boost the IBUs using a tetrahydroisoalpha-acids solution, like YC-Tetra. But I doubt
    any craft brewer would touch the stuff.

    Months, years for very high gravity beers, like Imperial stouts.

    I have a G1W. It's considered to be one of the best around for a very reasonable price.

    Call your local university's ag department; check continuing education for a home orchard
    society. My local HOS has a identification fair every year. Turns out the old tree on my
    property is a totally...

    I left a batch of blackberry cider in the fermentor too long. Soured so bad I burned my throat
    tasting it! After draining the bucket, I popped the lid and there was a huge vinegar mother. I
    had just d...

    Should work just fine.

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..."
