  • 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.

    The residue can be removed almost instantaneously with distilled white vinegar. Add some to the
    empty flask/carboy/whatever, swish to coat all affected areas, dump, rinse and you're done.

    I didn't think about reaching in to wipe it down either. ;)That is certainly the lousiest part
    of having a keezer. Especially if you're not tall, and have a beer belly.

    +1 to FFA. I dipped my toes in when I was a youngster, many years ago. While I've traveled a
    different path in life, I do spend the growing season coaxing a productive life out of herbs
    and vegetables...

    For those looking to cut the home phone cost, look into ooma. It's VOIP, good quality, and
    cheap as all hell. Our cell numbers are given to friends and family. Businesses or anything
    else gets the hom...

    Columbus, columbus, and a bit more columbus.

    You can add on a secondary regulator from kegconnection for around $30. That's your best
    permanent solution.The suggestion of naturally carbing the hefe is a good one, but over time, I
    think the press...

    Brewing this morning, and rather than pick through my collection, I just put on Pandora, my
    Count Basie station. Some highlights thus far were Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa,
    and Benny Good...

    Sonnet and Sonnet Goldings are the same hop. I use them primarily in English brown ales, but
    they would probably fit very well in any English or German beer. The first time I picked them
    up was as a s...
