Posted in thread: Beer With Kick Is Caught in F.D.A.ís Net on 06-15-2013 at 07:56 AM
I didn't find her sympathetic at all in Beer Wars. She made a big deal about how BMC was
pushing her out of the market, but if you base your entire company on a single gimmicky beer I
don't think you ...
Posted in thread: How long do stouts take to carb? on 06-15-2013 at 02:29 AM
I added rehydrated champagne yeast after 8 weeks of no carbonation on my IIPA. Carbed up in 2
weeks after that. Give that a shot if you want. Obviously be sanitary and cautious. It is a
royal pain unc...

I didn't like her in beer wars and I felt that her beer was a gimmick more than an actually
good product. The FDA over reacted to the four-loko debacle but that was hardly what sunk
moonshot. Sad to h...

Mail it to yourself with a couple ice packs. I should think this would be easiest way to
preserve them from the perils of the TSA. Might transfer them to a smaller vessel with some
boiled and cooled w...

I bottled my mead tonight. It was tasty though a bit on the spicy side. I bottled in 375 ml
wine bottles with corks. This recipe has given me a lot of confidence on mead making and wines
Posted in thread: Jailhose Lawyers: Sanitation and ... !carbonation drops! on 05-31-2013 at 06:22 AM
I had an infection recently that I traced back to either my bottling wand or the carb tabs.
Neither of which I will use again. Carb tabs are neat in their own right but much more of a
pain than boilin...

You can bulk age in the 5 gallon bottle. Great for extra clearing time or dry hopping and
adding fruit. Essentially some beers benefit from aging and some don't. I made a Baltic porter
that I aged for...

Trusted brand for preground stuff but whole spices can be got from just about anywhere and you
can see what you are getting. Personally I wouldn't cheap out on spices and if a deal seems too
Posted in thread: What is your least favorite month of the year? on 05-28-2013 at 05:47 PM
March. "God made march should eternity prove too short." - Pat McManus. Muddy and rainy and
miserable with snow coming every few hours just to melt and make more mud. Horrid.
Posted in thread: Fajita versus Burrito on 05-28-2013 at 05:44 PM
A fajita is skirt steak. Any other cut is not a true fajita. It has to be grilled and served
with peppers and onions. Other toppings are optional. A burrito is pretty much any food folded
up in a flou...
