    Chicago Temperature issue

    Do you have a heating pad? You could apply the heating pad for a time and then wrap the carboy/bucket in a blanket. I would also try to get something between the floor and the carboy/bucket to reduce the cold transfer. JMO

    Things You Can Only Say To Another Brewer.

    It smells like rhino farts down in the basement and my SWMBO is pissed.

    Counterflow wort chiller

    Gravity works well with mine. The slower rate of flow ensures effective cooling from 215 down to 50 degrees. I use my old IC as a pre-chiller in a bucket of ice water.

    Michigan Breweries Help ASAP

    +1 to the Good Humans from Shorts. Their Bellaire Brown is pretty bland, but the Good Humans is a great seasonal that I always look forward to.

    Dog knocked over carboy. How ruined is my beer?

    This sounds like a good excuse to start brewing in 5 or 6 gallon carboys. I triple dog dare that dog to knock over one of those. :cross:

    What commercial beers are in your 'fridge?

    Just picked up a couple sixers of Short's Good Humans - it's a seasonal double brown dry hopped ale. Love most everything that comes out of Short's Brewery.

    Hop Union 1# bags- resealable?

    That's what I thought based on my belief that they use a thicker mylar style bag. I always transfer my hops to foodsaver bags when I break into a pound bag.

    Hop Union 1# bags- resealable?

    Good to know.

    Hop Union 1# bags- resealable?

    Don't know if a food saver will seal the type of bag they use. If you try to reseal it- post your results.

    What came in the mail for you today?

    Some universal poppets, a new funnel, and some specialty grains from Morebeer. Their free shipping got to my door in 48 hours from Philly to Detroit.

    Best brewery to visit in the detroit area?

    Dragonmead in Warren is another good choice. Here is a link to a Beer Advocate web page detailing Detroit area bars and breweries. http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/8

    Closed-system pressurized fermentation technique!

    If you brew big batches and they seal I'd say they would work just fine.
