    New Joke thread. Let's keep it reasonable

    A biker was riding along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, the Lord said, “Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish." The biker pulled over and said, “Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can...

    This is going to be another expensive hobby

    I shop at Walmart but I refuse to buy their one grossly overpriced product. I will not buy a plastic bag from them. 5000% profit on those suckers. That is why the Walton are rich. I never take a bag of my own to Walmart nor do I buy thiers. And I make a point of telling every person in the...

    Take that yeast and farm it in a little bit of beer wort and see if it grows and ferments. If it does then keep feeding it and keep it happy. Happy Yeast brews the best beer.:ban:

    Serving with free Co2 idea.

    You need some kind of pump in your setup because even with a one way valve you are still only going to equalize the pressure between the two tanks and that much CO2 pressure is going to stall fermentation. Your idea is good in principal but lacking in for sight. And yes it is not clean CO2.

    1-Gallon Brewers UNITE!

    Well I am going to tackle this one as I mash four ounces of grain all the time because I use it to farm my yeast. 4 ounces of malt and 8 ounces of water in a small pot on low heat on the stove. Put a thermometer in it to know what you are doing. First Grind your grain in a blender and heat...

    I had not heard of that word so I looked it up and got this from Wikipedia. Sounds like it could be something to work on when I see the variety of bitters they are using. I do a lot of other things with herbs including making my own Bitters so I have lots of...
