4 Wheels. I built a wood stove with 3 wheels and it can get tippy when moving it.
Posted in thread: thinking about trying beano for a junk beer on 11-15-2007 at 04:39 PM
Beano IS alpha amylase, from asparagus I believe. Just a different package for a different
purpose.From what I read, corn was mashed up and pressed into patties in the mouth, giving it
the protein sha...

It turns out I was using a busted thermometer for about a year and my mash was actually done

something lighter I boil ...

What about making a sleeve over the smooth roller, like cheese cloth or silicone? Duct tape?
the non-sticky side may be sticky enough.how about a condom? The non-lubricated ones.I'd try

Posted in thread: Water Cemistry: Where to find Calcium Carbonate? on 01-15-2007 at 03:38 PM
Any idea where one might find that? You could try sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). There might
be a slight taste difference but I doubt you'd notice in a stout. Don't use too much, and don't
