    I usually heat the rehydration water up to 90F or so, figuring there'd still be some oxygen
    dissolved in the water to help the yeast along.

    A little. But if you're bottling, it'll still be there after carbonating your beer, albeit
    settled out in the fridge, for the most part.

    the crust, with halved jalapeno motz sticks in the edge crust. Pizza sauce, turkey chunks, red

    Those Weber kettles have great heat convection though! I wanna get the one on the cart with the
    lil table like the bbq pit boys have to go with my rectangular pit. The fire tray on that one's

    Cooked down the turkey carcass in water yesterday evening to make soup or stew today. I also
    have the roasting juices in the fridge under a nice fat cap. The juices always turn to meat

    My PM Irish red went amazingly well with the turkey this year. Had an almost wine-like quality
    with a bite of some turkey & a sip of it at the same time.

    In my experiences with Cooper's English bitter, 1.010 to 1.012 is a completely normal FG.
    Sometimes, complete fermentation can happen in very short order. I've had rehydrated Cooper's
    ale yeast finish...

I have to admit this time of year is really starting to suck out loud. They always wait til Thanksgiving time to fuck me outta my last dime. This year is the worst ever. We got no tree,I know I'm not getting any gifts,had to shop at the cheapy store to get the kids something at least. Which is hard cause they're all grown. I got no beer ready,so nothing to drink. No cigs,no vodka,no bourbon...none of the usual. WE only have italian sausage to go with spaghetti tonight because of the food bank. There's no pity for a broke retiree. No $$ till 12/31,which does nothing about right now.
