  • I am a mathematician. I got in to home brewing with a plastic bucket as a poor, starving graduate student. Once I had a job, I went all in. I was the creator of the english ordinary bitter called "The Mathematician's Apology", which did well commercially at The Turkey Hill Brewery in Bloomsburg, PA. I like reading old newspaper clippings and editorials describing beer from important eras in history. Through my research, I have arrived at the opinion that, although creativity has flourished in the modern craft beer movement, the delicate balance of flavors and complexity that was the hallmark of yesterbeer is lacking.

    i'm not doubting that he has some good deals. For example I was almost ready to drop on a dozen
    pairs of stainless ball lock disconnects, at $22 a pair. But before I could order those, i got
    his reply...

    I just found your post. I posted a review of my experience the other day at some parts from
    him on eBay the other day. He is a scammer, at least on the one level I reported. I even got
    him to admit ...

    There wasnt any option related to overcharging under "report a seller". Maybe some other ebay
    expert out there with better googlefu can chime in on how to do that. I was on hold for 20 min.

    was their recommendation for low pressure or high pressure? Also, what size line do you have
    going to the burner?

    stored jars and g...

    ProMash has been a wonderful app. I still keep handwritten records of my brew days, and have
    always used ProMash for planning and inventory management. I found that the simplistic design
