    I have a question about my first brew. Do I have to boil the extract and water and everything?
    How a bout the yeast?hahaI guess just enter me in the drawing, thanks!

    Hmmm, sometimes there is very little activity in the starter, has the gravity moved? I couldn't

    Those are 2 different things. Typically, O2 is added prior to/while you add yeast, so that the
    yeast have the required oxygen.Degassing is the process of shaking, stirring, etc to release
    CO2 after th...

    Dry Hopping is the primary reason for the big hop nose. Late additions (flame out) help out a
    bit, but primarily it's the dry hopping with fresh hops

  • Posted in thread: Dry-hopping question x3 on 01-10-2010 at 01:49 AM
    Generally, I dry-hop for 7-10 days at most and discard the spent hops. I'm sure they might be
    fine to re-use but they are not going to add as much to the next batch as this one. Just buy
    new and go wi...

Nice jet. My mom got her pilot's license when she was 16 and I have two uncles that still fly their plane (not sure but it seats 6 and has a prop). Both my grandfathers were pilots. Mom's dad owned a plane until he, my grandmother, and young uncle died in it before I was born. My dad's father was a B-17 pilot at the end of the German daylight bombing raids and never flew again after the war. I loves me some planes :). Good to meet you and glad you're a brewer too.
