Is that a stainless steel flip flop? Do you consider it an essential item in your brewing process? Does it create any off flavors?

I got tired of almost slipping in my rush to relight the burner whenever the wind blew it out. Was such a pain in the ass sitting out there on the ready to run over and relight.

ps. Can't see it but I have a charged hose line just in case something got out of hand =p

pps. Flip Flop is used for lambics.

It's not real. It was at one time the flotation portion of the pool thermometer. But we do have alligators in the canal since we are so close to the everglades (Less than 2 miles and we're in the everglades)

Born and raised Floridian, 35 years in Plantation. Those pictures show everything I miss about Florida. But then I think of the things I don't miss, Traffic and idiot drivers, Hurricanes( Except the U), flood insurance and property taxes, tourists.
