oxidation.I know distilled water is recommended for use in rads, but I have to disagree with
the wording ...

You can get a corrosion inhibitor. It's a product that allows you to use straight water as
coolant in your car if freezing isn't a concern. 'Water Wetter' is one brand name that I know
of. Not sure ho...
Posted in thread: What sort of maniac puts a carboy brush in a better bottle? on 09-20-2012 at 12:06 AM
Another vote for Oxi-clean. I used it to clean red wine out of a glass carboy once and I was

when Ottawa was s...

I had a chicken at my place in East Van for a month or two. Me and a buddy 'liberated' it from
a local slaughterhouse/processing plant/whatever you want to call it (It's nearby in the
industrial area ...

Another vote for the Freakin' Frog. Haven't been to any of the others, but the Frog was great.
There's also a pretty serious whisky room upstairs if you're into that too.

I've always wanted to do a beer that way.
