    The dead lion is not surrounded by flies but bees. Here's the information from the Lyle's
    Golden Syrup Website:In 1904, the “lion and bees” tin was registered as
    Lyle’s trademark. Th...

    Powdered milk is very unhealthy because of oxidized cholesterol. Homogenization of milk is also
    bad because it probably promotes atherosclerosis (plaques in your arteries), which leads to
    heart diseas...

    Another old thread, but oh well. It's fun to revive the dead threads. I plan to make a Berliner
    Weisse soon by souring the wort first for 24 hours and then boiling it for about 30 minutes
    with some ho...

    An old thread, but I'll write anyway. I personally switched to glass carboys. For those who are
    uncomfortable with the idea of one large glass carboy and its dangers, then buy two five-gallon
    carboys ...

  • Posted in thread: Ant in my starter/yeast culturer on 08-01-2011 at 07:14 PM
    I have this exact same problem with ants in my airlock. It's a three-piece airlock and I don't
    think they can make it through the liquid to get into the beer. But I'm switching to cheap
    vodka in the a...

  • Posted in thread: vodka in airlock? on 08-01-2011 at 07:01 PM
    I realize this is a pretty old thread, but I'll write anyway. I am putting vodka in my airlock
    now not because of suck back, but because I had an ant invasion. For some reason a ton of ants
    wanted the...

    I just found this information that is extremely helpful, and I will follow the directions
    outlined by White Labs: the yeast arrives and the pack itself is not super hot, I'll make the
    smallest starte...

    I have noticed on Mr. Malty that it never suggests less than a liter for anything. What I like
    to do is put in the whole five gallons (20 liters) and see what I get, then multiply that by .4
    (which gi...

    I'm ordering a Wyeast Scottish ale yeast 1728 smack pack from Austin Homebrew. I'm in southern
    California. Both places are hot as hell (100s), and the trip for the yeast to get here will
    probably be a...

  • Posted in thread: Hydrometers Suck on 07-29-2011 at 02:48 PM
    Hahaha, yes, the hydrometer sucks because I dropped it and it broke. How many of you have NEVER
    broken a hydrometer? They are just too fragile for clumsy homebrewers (like me). But yes,
    better a broke...
