    Simple Brew Timer (working version!)

    I'm running it in ubuntu hardy heron and I don't get any sound. I'm in a few computer sci classes in school (using java) but I'm trying to learn python. If a verson of your program was written in python making calls to the os would be so easy. I still don't know jack about python, but I may...

    Love The (Edwort's) Apfelwein

    I'm making an apfelwein with 5 gallons of apple juice, 1 gallon of half pomegranate half white grape juice, and two pounds of corn sugar. I'm using the same wine yeast, but I think that it will be very good.

    possible use as a fermenter for 10 gal batches?

    would the plastic leave an off flavor in the beer? I mean I'm sure thats not a problem for biodiesel, but it might cause a brewing problem

    Check out my labels

    thanks, Yeah I've been trying to decide on a different color for the text, but there are so many other colors in the icon that I can't decide what to go with. Maybe if i put a white outline around the text it would help.

    very bad brew day

    yeah the milk crates are a good idea, I also think that my carboy's temperature had been changing too much prior to my "accident" and I "suppose" that could weaken the glass? because i really barley tapped the side. And thanks for the info jimbob. I feel like I'm betraying good beer by adding a...

    Brewery names--what's your story?

    Dizzy Hobbit's Darkest Homebrew I like lord of the rings, one could say I have the stature of a Hobbit, and I try to find myself as dizzy as possible.

    fermentation problem?

    well my fridge leaks alot, so after i wrapped the primary fermenter in several blankets and covered it in a trashbag, i guess it gave the yeast enough warmth and stability to do its thang. haha, thanks everyone for your advice.

    fermentation problem?

    the thermometer is outside of the fermentation bucket. My refrigerator is really crappy and I didn't know it fluctuated so much until i had already started fermenting and was checking the temp constantly. But I wrapped the primary fermenter in two towels and covered it in a trash bag, so I hope...

    fermentation problem?

    Hi, this is my first time to brew a lager, so I'm still a little green behind the ears. Its a bohemian lager. I was using liquid wyeast, and started it 3 days before. After I brewed the wort I pitched the yeast at 75 dF and put it in the fridge at 50 degrees. My fridge has been fluctuating in...

    very bad brew day

    Today was my worst. I had just finished pitching the yeast in and aerating my colonial ipa in a glass carboy. So I put the airlock & stopper in, and go to put it in my brew closet. Well my closet was full of kegs and a c02 tank, so i set the carboy down and pick up the tank to move it, and i...
