  • 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.

    I'll be taking this Sunday off from music. Last night I went to see August Burns Red,
    (hometown-last-night-of-the-tour show), and my hearing is wrecked this morning. Looking forward
    to things clearing...

    In theory, 1.138 is the OG for 4 pounds per gallon. That is what I assume based upon honey's
    predicted pppg. It is not measured with a hydrometer. You could pull 5 samples
    pre-fermentation, and if you...

    Okay, so your problem is your starting gravity is not what you think it was.It was obvious to
    me, because I make meads with 4 pounds per gallon, so they finish around ~14% and about 1.030.
    Honey has a...

    I think it's great that someone is saying something good about the change. Soooo much
    complaining when it happened. It was a good change, though.

    Cascade and CTZ, with a respectable amount of crystal malt to round it out a little better,
    like an older style pale ale.

    Some may say extra insulation, but the R value of wood is crap, so it's certainly not worth the
    price, other than for decorative purposes.

    Nah, I'm very lazy. I memorize and express conclusions, but forget supporting details. It's a
    fault of mine, and for this I do apologize. But since we are now exchanging advice:All info on
