    Jolly pumpkin bottles take a regular cap and are thick and 750 mL. We throw lots in the
    recycling every day at work. You just have to get them before the homeless guys pick through
    the recycling.

    Cut out all grains and sugar, except for beer of course, and cut out dairy as well. Eat healthy
    fat and grass fed meat. Lots of veg but not potatoes. Fruit occasionally. Works wonders even
    without wor...

  • Posted in thread: Funky beer lover correlation to mushroom lovers? on 02-08-2015 at 03:47 AM
    Not a big fan of funky or sour beers, but mushrooms are one of my favorite foods and flavors.

    Snow driving is fun without a lot of traffic. I'm from Leelanau County, MI and we get a lot of

  • Posted in thread: 15-gallon brew kettle advice on 01-04-2015 at 06:54 AM
    If you're going to do 10 gallon batches I would go with a 20 gallon kettle. That way you don't
    have to worry about boil over and you could do longer boils of 90 or 120 minutes pretty easily.
    I often p...

    Place the tank partly submerged in tepid water. A tub from a swamp cooler works well. This year
