    Autosiphon broke - replacement?

    I broke my autosiphon just before racking my carboy into a keg this evening. I got by with using the racking cane section of the autosiphon with a carboy cap and blowing into the smaller part of the cap, which worked well enough and I'm sure a number of people rack regularly with this method.

    Mash Tun: Braided Hose vs. Manifold

    delabeling bottles

    New Glarus (hooray WI) bottles are by far the easiest I've ever delabeled. Soak them in a weak concentration of soap and warm water and they just slide right off. The only thing that came off easier was day-old wheatpasted labels on homebrew.

    What I did for beer today

    Yesterday I threw some Perlicks in a big ol' trash can Biermuncher style. Right now I need to make a yeast starter
