    Will there be human footprints on Mars by 2040? If so, who will have done it?

    Haha, yeah, Roswell, Georgia, not New Mexico! It's right next to Alpharetta, which is cited in this story: https://www.ajc.com/news/local/police-alien-seriously-pulled-over-fulton/EP8jYwApnNiOiMUefB7E9N/

    There are threads on HBT that you read before brewing the beer. Then there are threads on HBT that you read once you are drinking the beer. ... and then there are threads on HBT that you read once you forget just how much beer you have been drinking ... Cheers!

    Measuring Liquids

    I haven't done much research on flow meters, but have been curious about it, especially in the context of brewery automation. Getting into a scripted brew day with a control screen, etc., is definitely on my long term to do list. This guy has flow meters connected to his system:

    Kegging foam question/problem

    Yeah, hose size makes no difference when carbonating. I was wondering if you tried to force carbonate by shaking the keg or ramping up the psi. If you hook up a pressure gauge to the gas out post, you can measure where you are at.

    Kegging foam question/problem

    Are you sure you haven't over carbonated? Do you have any way to check the pressure in the keg?

    Wish me luck guys 😜

    Hahaha, WTH!! Keep us posted, beer was safer than city water of yore, right? Well, but still, I enjoy modern life with municipal water systems! LOL.. Well, maybe it will even be good, and you will start a trend of using aged ingredients, annnnndd... Maybe not.. may the brewing gods be in your...

    Measuring Liquids

    Honestly, this is a good way, and I'd think probably on par with my measurements of weight for accuracy. I had the added complexity of marking a sight glass external to the vessel, and I wasn't certain as to the thickness of the bottom of the kettle. Love the metric system. 1 kg = 1 liter...

    Measuring Liquids

    I've been wanting to try that! Even though I have sight glasses, it still seems pretty cool! Do you worry at all about wearing away the etchings with bar keepers friend?

    Measuring Liquids

    True! I've been making good beer all along, so cheers to that! There is probably a much better way to do this. I measured 10 pounds on the kitchen scale, which has a range up to 11 pounds. Then I made sure that the bathroom scale, which has a range up to 330 pounds, agreed. Two digital scales...

    Measuring Liquids

    So, when building out my brewhouse equipment, I installed sight glasses on the outside of the kettles. I use those sight glasses to measure liquid volume. My recipes seem to come out roughly on target for gravity, etc. I took a marked bucket from home depot, poured in 4 gallons of water into the...

    Overnight Mash. Flaked corn OK?

    I never tried it, but I think the general idea is to have two half brew days, rather than one full. Time management, I suppose it's hard for a lot of people to find a 10 hour block of time, and the mash is the only point that is really not overly time sensitive. Ideally, my own solution would be...

    Cool, keep us posted!

    Overnight Mash. Flaked corn OK?

    Well the xbeeriment thing I read said the overnight beer had very little head retention, higher starting and lower finishing gravity. That means the proteins must have broken down quite a bit and conversion was more complete than a regular mash. I'd think something like flaked wheat would be...

    Overnight Mash. Flaked corn OK?

    Never heard of overnight mashes before, but that doesn't mean much. I'm googling it, and it seems that it's not too uncommon. I'm curious how it works for you, and curious why you would ask about flaked corn in particular

    Kegging foam question/problem

    Go with the smaller diameter tubing for sure. You need to balance the pressure, but personally, I am not a fan of 50 feet of tubing in my kegerator. For me, that is times 3 kegs, its expensive and messy. We are not trying to transfer beer across a large commercial space, right? Perlick makes a...
