Posted in thread: Any worse beer destination than Mexico? on 06-23-2013 at 11:13 PM
I'll second Bohemia, Indio, and Negra Modelo. All welcome alternatives to Corona and Dos Equis
(which I will drink when the time is right). I love a hoppy beer, but not when the ambient
Posted in thread: Ferm chamber below 40 degrees on 06-07-2013 at 04:01 PM
The ice buildup is likely throwing temps off. Ice forms around 32 F. The fridge thinks it is

Posted in thread: Oxi Clean to water ratio - Did my brewing book go overboard? on 06-02-2013 at 10:17 PM
I tend to use OxiClean in the ratio of about 2ish scoops (which is nearly half a cup) to 5
gallons of water. Hot water. I mean really hot water, the hotter the better. I really don't
think about it mu...
Posted in thread: Beer fermenting in Bottle or what? on 04-25-2013 at 05:44 PM
I had a pumpkin ale I made last fall that developed the same pellicle. It developed after I

ingredients, Jason an...

I know it wasn't the point of your post, but I'm sorry for your loss. I wish I had been closer
to my dad. Even so, I'm having a glass of my Edmond Fitzgerald Porter in his memory. :mug:
Posted in thread: Copper surfaces reduce infections on 04-16-2013 at 02:12 AM
I know that many aquarists (and my local fish store) use copper to treat fish for infections
and parasites. In the right dosage, it's fine for fish, but harmful to invertebrates. I should
think that y...
Posted in thread: Cheese Cloth for Easy Clean Up? on 01-29-2013 at 10:51 PM
And I just sprayed my Founders Dirty Bastard all over my computer. Thanks. I knew I should have
browsed HBT on my tablet today. (no keys = easy clean up.)
Posted in thread: First Brew Day Of 2013!!! What are you making? on 01-09-2013 at 01:48 AM
I did my fist real partial mash today. I made my starter on the 30th for a New Years Eve brew,
but I ended up going out instead. I brewed today using my first starter and my first time
trying a real P...

I know I'm new here, but #2 is local to me and I know their equipment is top notch. Also,
online sales are very important to them and have seen them on the phone with customers for up a
to half an hou...
