  • JE, (froggyfrog), got me into brewing. Or maybe I made him allow me to participate. It's hazy, at best. Either way, I jumped straight into all-grain, and have never stopped to look back. I have no fear of trying new things, doing things slightly "against the rules", don't give two sh*ts about "what some book says", and am willing to put anything into a beer, just to see what becomes of it. I brew what I drink, and fortunately, I make some rather good beer, except for those couple of batches that I hated, and some of the rest of you really liked. You know who you are, and I thank you for drinking them.

    As mentioned in the first post, it was google that was the problem. I've seen the problem here,
    and all over the internet. Something on every page may be coming from somewhere else. If

    The point I'm trying to make is that as homebrewers, we should be the one part of the market
    that doesn't automatically reject all beers because of some "born on" date alone. This. 100%

    Best winter brewing tip:Stand closer to the burner.Other than that, keep your hose, grain, and
    mash tun inside. Doing the mash inside is your best bet, anyway. Boil in an oversize pot, and

    Where does that light go then? Clearly, when you turn the light off, it's not still bouncing
    around the room - it gets dark. That energy must go somewhere. Energy is NEVER lost. So, let's
    just say tha...

    100% of the energy you put into the bulb doesn't turn to heat. A majority of it turns to light.
    The heat is a by-product, and any heat caused by the light itself is minimal, especially after
    the losse...

    Your heater is a much more efficient source of heat than your lights. Penny for penny, you'll

    the time, th...

    Glue a washer to the fan. You can easily spin the fan and see if the washer is not centered.
    Stick two round magnets on the washer, adjust as needed until they're spaced correctly. No
