    Has anybody heard of or tried eating hop shoots? SWMBO sent me this link yesterday and wanted
    me to print it for her. She wants to try this next spring. I'll try any food thing once, I'm
    not sure if I...

    Here you go Goofy - for future reference: bought lots of seeds from here, always good quality

    I've been debating on taking both the technichan and general at the same time. I've been
    studying the online tests for about 6 weeks now and have been getting 85-95 on both every time

    one. Fingers...

    I had 3 extract kits that I brewed in late December - early January that had an expiration date
    of 2010 that I kind of forgot I had. I meant to brew them within 6 months of buying them but we

    :mad:I just tried to order a couple of extract kits from Northern Brewer and requested that
    they not crush the grains with the kits. I was told that they can't leave the "specialty
    grains" that are in...

    I kinda figured the label part. I'll try the WD-40 in a few minutes and let you know how it
    goes.Dude! That worked great! Who knew WD-40 would dissolve glue? I had those things on the
    kitchen counter ...

    I used WD-40 and the glue comes right off. Just spray, let sit for a short moment, wipe off
    with old cloth/rag.EDIT: I guess I should have said that I peel the label off first.I kinda
