  • Treasurer - Big Cypress Sport Shooters Guild
  • Started brewing about 1989 till 1993 then went back to school. Now am an accountant; need to pass two more CPA exams, so I'm getting back to having a life, love to cook and thought I'd get back into brewing. Started to brew because back then the craft beers were not so easily obtained, and the wife and I both LOVE BGM.

  • Posted in thread: Another successful brew... But a few ?'s on 05-22-2008 at 01:43 AM
    Good advice, I always pour the hot wort into the ice water then run three fans on the carboy.
    I'm gonna start cooling the wort to 100 first. Probably why I'm buying a 6gl better bottle
    cause my glass ...

  • Posted in thread: how to get extract into glass carboy on 05-22-2008 at 01:37 AM
    My wife never holds the funnel right. She lets it make a seal instead of tipping it a little,
    then some hot wort blurches up and scares her - every time.

  • Posted in thread: Bad dog!!!! on 05-22-2008 at 01:25 AM
    Sometimes I have my hydrometer ready (extract brewer) and have a few too many homebrews while
    brewing and completely forget to take an OG. So I just leave everything a bit longer; longer
    primary, take...

  • Posted in thread: About dry hopping on 05-22-2008 at 01:20 AM
    Just put em in there, watch em float around loose, and then wrap a bag, I use a nylon hop bag,
    around the end of your auto-siphon when you rack into the bottling bucket. The loose hops
    actually keep s...

  • Posted in thread: advice please???? on 05-22-2008 at 01:08 AM
    If it's too sweet for you give it to your wife or girlfriend who doesn't really like hops
    anyway. I have made a couple of batches that I didn't think I would like, or didn't like, and
    they sat around ...

  • Posted in thread: Rubber Stopper Won't Stay In Carboy on 05-22-2008 at 01:02 AM
    I spray the area around the stopper with starsan and then take a doubled-over 2-3" strip of
    plastic wrap and stuff the stopper in, and then wrap it real tight - stretching the wrap in
    place ala shrink...

  • Posted in thread: Thinking about getting a secondary fermenter... on 05-22-2008 at 01:00 AM
    I am going to better bottles for beer and using glass for meads. I have noticed cracks in two
    glass fermentors in the last 6 months and it's a bummer to have to keep buying those things. I
    almost alwa...

  • Posted in thread: Lager Temp Question on 05-22-2008 at 12:43 AM
    Tanks a bunch der Yooper, the fermentation temp was actually closer to about 57* (I got one a
    doze temp thingy's that goes 4* lower than what ya set it at until the temp rises back up) and
    after the b...

  • Posted in thread: How best to bottle mead on 05-22-2008 at 12:13 AM
    I put my mead in ANY bottles. Magnums to tiny. My wife especially likes those little 6oz
    champagne bottles cause they're so dainty. I have noticed that using 5oz corn sugar for 5
    gallons gives mine qu...

  • Posted in thread: First Prickly Pear Mead on 05-22-2008 at 12:06 AM
    I followed the Papazian recipie but only used 15# honey as this is going to sparkle. After the
    cooking of those gorgeous cactus fruits, the beautiful crimson turned to yellow-brown. In the
    fermentor i...
