  • 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. Except tomatoes. (Don't ask me, ask the frog.) 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.

    When your kid gets their drivers licence, you don't buy them a Lexus, you buy them something
    cheap. Until they are comfortable with the processes and have a distinct need for something
    high end, they ...

    Can't hurt. Take a clean paper towel and dry the glass and the stopper. Maybe it'll work for

    If it's one of these: don't like to "stick" when the glass or the stopper are wet. Dry both,
    and then all will be well.If it is one of these: I don't have any advice for you, because I've
    never had ...

  • Posted in thread: Up **** creek without a regulator? on 08-26-2015 at 09:51 AM
    The first 24 hours or so that your tank and regulator are in the fridge, you will likely have
    unexpected readings because of the drastic temperature change. Once it all acclimates, it
    should stay cons...

    Be very concerned about the heat from the burner hitting the wood floor. Depending on the
    height of your burner, that will be your greatest risk.

    I just borrowed this idea for some jalapeno slices I was pickling. I did the equivalent of 3
    half pints of peppers, but put one half pint's worth in a pint jar, and added enough homegrown
    cascade, chi...

    I'm having some coffee, listening to some Dean Martin, trying to convince myself to start my
    day, rather than sit here all morning.More tomatoes need canning, peppers need drying, hardwood
    floors need...

  • Posted in thread: HELP! Must use chocolate in brew for competition on 08-11-2015 at 08:42 PM
    Add a bit of vanilla to help accentuate the chocolate flavor if necessary. Vanilla really makes
    chocolate "pop".

  • Posted in thread: Sunday Morning on 08-09-2015 at 01:59 PM
    Morning is mostly gone, and I have no idea what all I'll be doing today. There are tomatoes to
    can, and peppers to harvest, some liquor to be consumed, but that's pretty much as far forward
    as I can s...
