    Amish smoked bermuda onion from Heini's would be perfect for this! They use caramelized bermuda
    onions in the marbled, smoked orange & white colby cheese.

    How is the Bucks IPAWell, with columbus, nugget & cascade, hops, it'll have familiar flavors in
    a more sessionable IPA. Easy to throw together for a pipeline filler.The Munton's (English)
    plain light ...

    A very old yeast strain, I'll wager. Was the helles/marzen light or dark colored? It interests
    me. The flavors you said it had makes me think it might be a bit darker than the usual helles?

    Yeah, I'd rather test it to be sure myself...hydrometers are like 6 bucks these days.

    I've most often red in manufacturers PDF's that the rehydrate should be within 10 degrees of
    current wort temp, not 5. Within 5 degrees might be better, but 10 degrees is the norm they
    give. I do beli...

    With two different stories claiming to be correct- One side claiming the Co2 pushes the O2 up &

    It's hypocritical & funny at the same time. They buy up all those craft breweries, then shoot
    themselves in the foot financially by putting them down as only for sissies. But they have to
    pump up thei...

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.
