    Overnight force carbonation

    Got the carbonation dead on, but I think the carbonic acid issue mentioned above was a hold up. Beer wasn't bad, but I can definitely tell it needs some time to condition. Pretty happy that I was able to get it to the completion at all. Live has gotten busy. 5 month old and rigging out a new...

    Overnight force carbonation

    So, I let a competition sneak up on me, and tasting is tomorrow night. Beer is sitting in the firm in her bra hopping, and I have to keg it and get it carbed up before this time tomorrow. Recommendations please. Initial thought is to bump the pressure to 30 PSI immediately after kegging and...

    How long to store refrigerated Wort

    Local homebrew club got together, and had a local brewery run a pale wort for the entire club to use for a competition. It was mashed Saturday, and due to scheduling conflicts I couldn't pick it up until today. It has been refrigerated in a starsan sanitized bucket, and kept at about 40 degrees...

    This Really Annoys Me Pet Peeve Thread

    My inlaws are like this. If a door has a lock on it, in their mind it should be locked. My wife and I use the garage door as our lock. Anytime the MIL is visiting, she insists on locking the kitchen to garage door, even when the garage door is down. Even worse are the locks that let you open...

    House is plenty big. Wife is just overly "modest".

    This Really Annoys Me Pet Peeve Thread

    Getting cock blocked by your mother-in-law...............the very day that the OB/GYN gives your wife the green-light post baby. Evidently an unannounced 2 to 3 day visit.

    This Really Annoys Me Pet Peeve Thread

    About 5 minutes from my house we have north, east, west, and old, blackstock roads...........and they pretty much all connect to one another. Everybody that calls for directions from one of them seems to know that they are on blackstock Rd, but can't manage to figure out which one.

    This Really Annoys Me Pet Peeve Thread

    Boaters who use their docking lights as headlights. Almost as bad, the ones that put rope lights down both sides of their boat. Dumbasses, you are blinding the rest of the boaters on the water. I am all about a very bright 360 light, and sufficiently visible bow lights. Anything beyond that is...

    Food problems: How do I order an English Muffin??

    I find that grits being a menu option is a promising start for the future of the peoples republic of california.

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    This very well can be the case, depending on your location. Where I am located, we can go one of two directions. Either warm season grasses such as Bermuda, Zoysia, or Centipede, or cool season such as Fescue or Bluegrass. In my area, it's about a 50/50 split, dictated by amount of shade...

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    Absolutely. Species selection is everything, and sometimes that isn't even enough. I am in process of switching from a mix of fescue and bluegrass (and mainly weeds) to Bermuda. Around here if you have sufficient sunlight get Bermuda or zosya to grow they are super easy, once established. Both...

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    That one is actually the neighbor across the road. This is mine. Tore the yard up a bit more today. Another neighbor is a grading contractor. I have access to some expensive parts he needs for almost free, and get good perks in return. He hooked me up with a couple of loads of top soil, and...

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    Wow. I would take issue with that just for the flee and mosquito implications.

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    Ha. Right where I want it to be. Been buying time waiting on the soil temps to come up. Bermuda is pesky seed to mess with. Requires a lot of water in small doses, 3-4 times per day. This cools the soil, so you have to overshoot the ideal temp by a bit before planting so that you don't over cool...

    Anyone have one of those neighbors?

    My current situation. This is the result of a combination of roundup and 2-4-D. Down to sticky a couple of patches of Bermuda, and bare, weed free dirt. Filling in a few low spots and dog damage tomorrow. Still have a few neighborhood residents writing the president of the HOA (me) asking me...
