Once more moon shine and one of greatest thing i have found from our friends from the north. Fireball whiskey .

On a side note I wonder if there is a way to measure the amount of co2 gas comes off of a five gallon. Home brew in the primary ?

I moved on to an oatmeal stout I brews. I followed the Uckleduckfay recipe from TCJOHB but I must've had bad efficiency cause it came out on the low ABV side. Still pretty good though.

Probably not worth the the effort, but using a big balloon, the density of gaseous CO2 at a given temperature, and water displacement you could get close.

Ill drink it this weekend and get back to you on it. I hope it not but ill drink it anyway

Drinking my Dunderhead Dry Stout.

This was the first recipe I put together myself, a few years ago. It's a dry stout (Dave Miller's extract recipe from Brewing the World's Great Beers), with molasses in it.

Back in the day, it was the shiznit. Guinness drinkers loved it, BMC fans found it approachable cuz it wasn't that heavy and had a nice residual sweetness, and I LOVED it because it was simply different. I'd taken a style, a recipe, and made it my own.

My technique, palate, budget, etc. have evolved to the point where the molasses is a bit much...but it reminds me of where I'm coming from on this journey called brewing.

Really? I think it would of pop the balloon fairly quickly. If that watched. I mean what other use can this gas be used for? I can not remember is co2 heaver that the air we breath?

Oh ya on fire ball shot #6

You're probably right. I'm probably talking out of my ass. Been drinking
