    Horrible extraction efficiency

    So a couple of things jump out, for starters, that's an awfully low amount of base malt, generally base malts should be at least 70% of your beer by gravity points. That's also an awfully high amount of flakes vs malts, I have to wonder if that might interfere with your efficiency; I typically...

    Can you smell a CO2 leak?

    Generally speaking, no, CO2 does not have burning smell or sensation unless an additive is added to make it so. It is certainly not good for you and can knock you unconscious, but that wouldn't cause a burning sensation. Keep in mind that fermentation produces more than just CO2, the smells...

    Independent Craft Brewer Seal

    So, with the wave of acquisitions by everyone's hated foes such as InBev, there's a new way to tell if a brewer hasn't "sold out" yet, a special seal on their six packs and bottles. Independent Craft Brewers Seal There is some licensing fees involved, so not every independent will have the...

    This commercial probably didn't help:

    Into the Badlands

    I wasn't able to write last episode due to personal life stuff, but there wasn't a whole lot to go into. This episode provides a bit more fodder. First, quick side note, I'm with team farmer guy; MK steals a carrot from his garden and he's the bad guy that has to get an axe to the brain? On...

    The [Horribly Unpopular] Soccer Thread

    Maybe not. Rumor was he was heading to MLS this summer to the LA Galaxy, but the Galaxy look like they need some help right the hell now, so they'll likely pick up someone else in the summer window, leaving them without a spare designated player spot. It's possible Zlatan joins expansion side...

    Into the Badlands

    Arguably the best episode of the season was one in which the two main characters did virtually nothing; MK's non-twist twist took up maybe five minutes of screen time and Sunny didn't show up at all. I'm not so sure it's a good sign that the most interesting bits don't involve the two main...

    Absolute dagger of a way for Dallas to lose that game, and a screw up by the veteran Figueroa.

    The Walking dead

    Daryl's current crossbow isn't his original remember? He got his from the Kingdom, which seemed to have a few. He's also been shown to make his own on the show, so apparently he's a pretty decent fletcher.

    Into the Badlands

    A less than amazing episode in my opinion, but still entertaining. Over the Moon In another show, Nathaniel Moon's back story would be the start of the show with Moon as the main character on a path towards revenge. Much as one would expect given the naming dynamic (Sun/Moon) Moon is meant as...

    The Walking dead

    I got the impression the trash people wanted slaves/workers, but maybe I'm wrong.

    The Walking dead

    One hell of an episode. Well worth the wait I think and, and the build up. A Proper Funeral We all knew that Sonequa Martin-Green, aka Sasha, was going to leave the show, but they gave the character and the actress a proper send off. The flashbacks/hallucinations showing her relationships...

    The [Horribly Unpopular] Soccer Thread

    Slight defense of Roman Torres here:he's really good. I mean, he's maybe not top of the heap good, but it's astounding to me that the Sounders got him as cheaply as they did. He's not really fast, but his positioning is usually top-notch and he's amazing on headers, plus he's pretty good on...

    Look, Panama is not a terrible team by CONCACAF standards...but we should be doing better than that. The United States has 80 people for every one Panamanian citizen, hell LA alone equals their population and LA alone brings in more per year than Panama does by GDP; we should be beating the...
