    A moment of silence for my brewery.

    Oh Man! I can't even imagine going through what you are I'm so sorry. As far as your brewing equipment is concerned, bleach is your friend. Clean everything with hot soapy water then sanitize with bleach. Even the plastic. If that plastic cooler is part of your brewing system I would make...

    Star-San vs. Iodophor - FIGHT!

    When I use Str-San I fill the carboy about a quarter of the way and gently swirl it around so it doesn't make much foam. Then I gently pour it out in a bucket and reuse it to sanitize other utensils and parts.

    Star-San vs. Iodophor - FIGHT!

    WOOOW!!! :) Not sure what got you going. I can say that I have used both and don't really have a preference. Right now I'm using starsan but I used iodopher for about 15 years before making the change. They both work, they're both easy, I can go either way.. It's all good bro, have a beer.

    My wife's a new shooter that wanted a .40. She's been out several times and is getting better but the .40 is a bit much for a new be, but that's what she wanted. I think more than anything she's rolling her finger in the trigger. I have her work on that at home doing dry fire practice.

    Can't say what my pride and joy is but here's what we have. S&W M&P40 full size and compact Remington 870 High Standard model B, 22LR Eddy Stone Model of 1917, 30-06 I think the High Standard means the most to me because my Dad use to take me shooting with it when I was a kid.

    In the wake of the panic buying of ammo (and just about everything else gun related) I've been thinking about reloading. I know the are several ways to clean your brass, dry tumbling, wet tumbling etc. I was wondering if anyone here uses Star San to clean their brass. I took some...

    Napa Valley

    Yep, I've ridden all through and around the Healdsburg area as well. Some great roads out your way. I have wondered what happened to the hop industry here in California.

    My Last Hop Harvest

    Honestly, saving money was never the reason I wanted to grow hops. I thought it would be fun to grow my own and brew with them. When it's stops being fun, stop doing it. That's where I am right now.

    My Last Hop Harvest

    I just harvested my hops for this year and because of the low numbers I've decided not to waist any more time and effort growing hops. I've been growing them next to the house (stucco). They started out great this year with very long side arms that were full of buds. Then, it was very windy...
